Top 10 Reasons the Last of Us is Overrated

The Top Ten

1 The game was advertised to be as realistic as games could possibly get but in reality is still chock-full of absolute video-game-logic nonsense like blatant environmental railroading and the complete lack of friendly fire
2 Many of the same problems that the Uncharted series had are still very clearly present, with several of them somehow becoming even worse than they were before
3 The graphics are literally THE best thing about the game (cough, totally not just like the Uncharted series before it, cough)
4 For the most part, as far as in-game personalities go, Joel is a dumb selfish brute and Ellie is a prissy spoiled brat; neither of them alone are particularly likeable in the slightest, not even mentioning all of the other characters
5 The storyline is bland and generic and really isn't emotionally captivating in any way that most other games that get excessively praised for the same reason haven't done vastly better (Mother 3 and Undertale, for instance)
6 The zombies serve very little actual purpose in the game apart from causing irritatingly forced cheap deaths (as if the humans don't already cause more than enough) and are mostly just window dressing in the long run
7 It's basically just a slightly less clich├ęd Walking Dead mixed with yet ANOTHER generic and incredibly frustrating third-person cover shooter
8 Naughty Dog in general is just a completely overrated game developer and always has been ever since the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy
9 Health kits and shivs are generally the only actually useful things to craft, and you even later end up having to use shivs exclusively as lockpicks because of how ridiculously rare the Blade material is, just to add insult to injury
10 It's better than any Uncharted game...if you've never heard of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, that is
