Re: The Last of Us PS3 Review

This comment was partly made to point out that studios like Hollywood have narrative storytelling as their primary, usually only, concern. Games in general don't need storytelling, as it's an industry where its games live or die by gameplay. If a game has a decent story then great! I certainly wasn't suggesting 'it's good for a videogame'; of course games have much better stories and narratives than most movies. But then again, games have a much longer timeframe in which to craft a compelling story, and a movie usually has to condense its message into a measly 90 minutes. They are just two different industries. The comparison made was to suggest that when you're playing the game you're in for a very filmic experience.
