Gameplay wise, The Last of Us Part II is one of the greatest video games I’ve ever played. The change in protagonist feels emblematic of the new realm of possibilities that makes the player’s journey more realistic. Though the game sticks to scarce resources and vicious enemies, it improves upon them, and introduces new mechanics that would likely be taken for granted in other games. However, the most consistent thing I did in each replay of the game was skip over its cutscenes. This highlighted a major issue that detracted from the overall playing experience: the story.
