I just quit at a turnstyle kind of gate...I still can't play that long before my arm/shoulder gives out and I have to quit, but hopefully I'm close. I need to see something new soon....

Game is quite long if you try finding all the crap. I did attempt it and finished in 30 hours but could’ve easily done it in 20. My suggestion would be to play for the story first only. You will have a lot more fun then.

That sounds like good advice I've let myself get tied up like this in games before and it ruins it for me. Next time in I'll just press on forward.

Yes some exploring here and there is fine and reading some notes is fun but if you continue to hunt for everything you gonna have a bad time. The things to look out for are weapons and upgrades. Those typically will show up organically with some thorough clearing out of mostly linear areas. Also work benches and meds are important to upgrade skills but at the end of the game I had done only all safes, work benches and weapons. I did not care for cards or coins and all artifacts.

Am I the only one who doesn't like Naughty Dog's abuse of the "killers can't kill intended target" cliche? I know they didn't create that, but they have mastered it with the Uncharted games. Whether it's Nathan, Abby or Ellie, we mass murder through our avatar without hesitation, neither from nerves or morals, yet when faced with the our main enemy, suddenly, we have a conscience, or we can't hit the braid side of a barn, or mostest stupidest of em all, they have improbable leverage. "You can't kill me Nathan, I have a VHS cassette of you dressed as girl playing pretty princess, and if I don't make a call within the next 10 minutes, your grandma will have it on her facebook page muahaha.

Seriously, I feel like the never ending repetition of same battles over and over greatly diminished the impact of key scenes including the ending. If Ellie wasn't already a cold blooded killer, her decisions in the false ending to ditch her family and resume her quest for revenge on someone who has twice spared her and her true ending decision to spare her would have had more impact.

I think Naughty Dog should have wrote a book or movie instead of a game that requires frequent action sequences.

yeah that's how I'm running it now. I just got into the military zone and I'm guessing I'll find out who the scars are soon from the chatter. I hope they're a good addition to the game

Two things really jump out at me. The game is so linear it's ridiculous, but in spite of that I always feel like I'm missing something. Incredible job with the set pieces and maps, really beautiful, in an apocolypse now kind of way

Yet some people are choosing to only call out this game and/or Naughty Dog. I wonder why that is?

When you finish you can go back and complete some areas if you want.

I actually really like the exploring part myself. There are some clues and puzzles involved and it is a nice break from the intense battles.

While waiting on Ghost of Tsushima, I decided to play a little New Game+. I set custom difficulty so ammo and crafting drop like crazy while enemies are harder. This play through I am doing the no stealth kill approach and going Rambo style on all levels. Runners are super annoying on survivor+ difficulty as they are faster and basically helicopter flail each arm at you so dodging is nearly impossible. And, hiding in grass only sorta works as enemies still see you from a good distance and dogs have super sniffers. (Probably more realistic). Good thing I have all my upgraded weapons from my first play through. Pew..pew...

It’s fun and different experience as I relied too much on the dishonorable kills in the first play through. It’s faster action and I am learning to use more of the killing tools they give you than the first time. Molotov cocktails are good for solving almost any sticky situation.
