First of, I want to like this. I really reeeeeally want to like this. I spent $100 for the Collectors Edition. I used Game Stops layaway form of preordering to make it a bit more painless. But that's still a hefty price. I also paid $100+ for Last of Us II branded headphones. I used a bit of the stimulus check for that to make it a bit more painless. But that's still a hefty price. I watched all the trailers, the E3 presentations...I replayed Last of Us and Left Behind to prepare. I really...reeeeeeally want to like this. And given how much $$$ I've put into this, I'm going to see it through to the end.
But the thing is, I started off being an apologist for this game. Every time I saw a complaint I'd be like, "well, yeah, but," or "we were predicting that since the very first teaser, so what?"
But here's the thing. The more I play, the more pissed off I'm getting. It's one thing to get emotionally invested in a game and be left speechless. Mass Effect had that effect on me many times and that's my most played franchise ever. But this has truly gone on to piss me off. And the thing that pisses me off the most is that I'm still going to play because, like I said, I have too much money sank into this to not see it through to the end. But here's a little thing about how manipulative this thing has gotten.
Seriously, major spoilers. Like MAJOR SPOILERS.
Arrgh! This sucks so hugging much. If I hadn't sunk so much money into this, I'd really want to stop right here. This just isn't pleasant. I don't like it. I want to stop playing right here. But I sunk so much into this already! GAH!
