No but seriously, GTAV is really good. Like, it’s great. So much to do. Like, holy cow. I understand why it’s would be GotY for some. But in the end, it’s another GTA game—but bigger, badder, and bolder in some ways. The Last of Us may be another apocalypse game, but in reality it’s narrative driven game. And boy did it break ground for it’s genre. I felt like it broke through a narrative barrier video games have been tap dancing on these past few years. The Last of Us finally shattered that glass ceiling with a massive blow.
Or did my men die for nothing?
You. You must lead.
“What’s interesting, even with the first Clara, is the sense that — not in an awful way, but — she doesn’t need him. She finds him the most amazing man but she doesn’t need him. She just won’t do as she’s told, as they wander into all sorts of danger. She definitely makes him work, and she doesn’t wear everything on her sleeve. He offered Clara all of time and space, remember, and she said, ‘Come back tomorrow.’”
LAST OF US IS THE PREQUEL LIKE WE GET TO FOLLOW RHE COMICS???
I NEED TO GET THIS OFF MY CHEST.
The Last of Us to me is something extremely special. Not because it’s a game that is able to blend the lines between gameplay and story. Or has, probably, the best developed and realistic characters in any video game. I mean yeah. All those things make it a triple A game. Game of the Year possible (probably). Sure. But that is not why I am so stuck on this god damn game.

The Last of Us
I think what really makes The Last of Us a masterpiece is how it’s able to sync it’s gameplay with the story. Like in Uncharted, Nathan Drake refuses to kill men within the story, but during the gameplay, he pretty much is a mass murderer. See the missing connection? But the thing is, most games are like this. It’s fun. Rarely do I ever sit back and call that a flaw because most games involving gun or killing are like that. It’s almost expected.
The Last of Us is able to connect these two parts. During the gameplay you kill many many men in horrible, brutal ways and in those horrible moments Ellie yells out “Jesus Joel!” or some other phrase that has you agreeing, because Christ you just blew half that guys head off with a shot gun. And when you’re winning the last man usually hides from you, bc well, you fucking just slaughtered everyone, so what would you do if you were the last man standing? And lets not mention that some of these guys will cry before dying. They don’t die with a sigh, but a sob. And this brutality and this realistic approach crosses over to the story. Numerous people criticize Joel’s talent at killing, even one of them calls him a raving monster (or something like that). And trust me, by the end of the story, you don’t doubt that assumption for a second because that is what Joel is: a man turned into a beast willing to do what has to be done just like the rest of humanity, the thing he has given up on.
And then Ellie and Joel, it applies to their relationship and character growth and just. THAT IS ANOTHER POST.
Seriously people taking interest in my book and writing and just asking me for advice and my own experiences gives me more motivation to write and pursue being a full time author as a career more than ever. And just confidence in myself in general. People tend to not realize how serious I am about this. I sort of see it as the only thing I can really do and be happy.
If I can’t write books for a living then I am most likely fucked. Not unless I meet some rich guy who is willing to marry me and take care of me and my cat despite the fact that i’m dirt poor and suck at relationships

“I think they’re here because I thought they ought to be here,” Gansey said.
Blue replied sarcastically. “Okay, God.”
I’ve decided I tend to like characters that are more self determined. Characters that are made for your sympathy never do it for me (not that I hate these type of characters). I like the characters that are like “Me or you? Sorry, it’s always me.” They don’t have to be total dicks or totally ruthless. More like, they don’t wallow in sadness and they don’t ask for your sympathy or even empathy and rather keep moving going forward.
Yea. yea. yea.
