Unhappy So, Naughty Dog could be remaking The Last of Us...

How pointless is that?

Quite frankly, I've grown so tired of gaming companies thinking that nostalgia is an easy cash grab. Because it is!

They should reconsider. Sometimes, a game is a one trick pony. But a great one at that. This probably has a lot of fans worried now...

It's a common issue, sadly. You know how it is with Hollywood as well.

Nostalgia is something we all hold dear to us. So they know that and bleed us dry.

Why not just use the resources this would use for the third game of give us a new IP, pointless . Sony are really making some bizarre choices of late which all started with there increasing game price too £60/$70 looks like the old sony arrogance of the ps3 era is making a comeback.

Due to silly price tags I’ve never been in a rush to buy a game so I wait 6 month or so and most or less than £30, as matter of fact,

I’ve bought both of these

Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, also known simply as Man of Medan, is an interactive drama video game developed by Supermassive Games and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It is the first of eight planned installments in The Dark Pictures Anthology series, and was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 30 August 2019. A successor, Little Hope, was released on 30 October 2020.

releasing games £25 brand new and there decent play, games with replay value and what you do and who you kill / save can results in various different endings, only downfall is there not that huge so can be played in 9hrs r less.

All the price increase has done is show people what amazing value Game pass is. Granted you won't see sony exclusives but it's gets some good third party support with Bethesda now owned by .Microsoft a lot of their stuff is on it and all future game will be on it day one.

In someways I'm glad I can't get hold of a ps5, as not a lot out for it a moment and lots of games have been put back till next year.

Think most will wait for.games to drop in price, probably even more now and a lot of those 60/70 games dropped in price quickly ,it's just greed as the game industry made plenty of money at old prices.
