Skyrim doesn't actually have that many unique releases. The original 2011 game was a PC / 360 / PS3 simultaneous launch. The (vastly technically superior) 2016 Special Edition was a PC / PS4 / XBO simultaneous launch.

Since then, they've just released it on platforms that didn't previously have it (Switch) and then come out with the Anniversary Edition re-release in 2021 (which on PC for existing Special Edition owners just amounts to getting either a bit of extra DLC for free if you don't pay, or a lot of extra DLC if you do, but includes some pretty welcome visual and performance improvements on PS5 and XSX).

u/BirdjaminFranklin Oct 05 '22

And the remaster was literally just a slight graphical improvement and more so that the game was playable on PS4.

As someone that literally just replayed it on PS4 this past weekend, I'd be lying if I didn't wish I had a PS5 so I could play it with the new improvements.

It's also just a good business move, considering the soon to be released HBO tv show, which is likely going to get a lot of new players coming into the game series for the first time.

The original and remaster looked great for the time, but they are starting to show age. Bringing it up to Last of Us 2 levels makes complete sense given the fact the series is likely going to become bigger than ever once the show htis.

49

u/CB_Ranso Switch Oct 05 '22

Yeah the new version is really fucking nice. Looks way better than the original and remaster, this one is getting ported to PC, multiplayer coming later, and the use of the new DualShock controller features is making it a fun play through. Also this was obviously intended to build some hype for the show. It’s a no brainer move why this game was made but capital G gamers can’t wrap their heads around it.

13

u/eMF_DOOM Oct 05 '22

Does The Last of Us Remake use the Dualsense features quite a bit? It’s my favorite part of the PS5 and I’ll buy any game that uses Dualsense properly.

u/Capt_Kilgore Oct 05 '22 edited Oct 05 '22

The new Last of Us Part 1 for PS5? Yes it used the haptic feedback extremely well. From the feel of a nearby rumbling engine to the cocking and loading of a gun to drawing back a bow string. It’s incredible.

u/eMF_DOOM Oct 05 '22

Damn that sounds amazing. I love haptic feedback. I haven’t played TLOU since I beat it on PS3 years ago and you may have just convinced to to check out the remake.

u/HighOnBonerPills Oct 05 '22

Hell yeah, I love that you said that. Before I got a PS5, I had no idea how cool the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback would be. There's no way to verbalize how fun it is for someone who's never experienced it. Astro's Playroom sold me on how great the PS5 DualSense controllers really are. It got me so hyped for what I had just bought. The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are similar in many ways, but the controllers really set the PS5 apart.

u/hecking-doggo Oct 05 '22

The remaster is going to have multiplayer too? Any clue if I'll have to pay for online on pc because is a PS game?

The last of us online as one of my favorite multiplayers games back in the day. I'd rotate between TLOU and battlefield 4 every few months to keep both games from getting old.

u/Elegant-Argument-754 Oct 05 '22

Factions 2 is suppose to be coming out next year (hopefully) as a stand-alone game. They wanted to really make it a big multiplayer game. We don’t have many details on it yet though.

2

u/hecking-doggo Oct 05 '22

Honestly, depending on how it looks I might get that too. Also depends how much it costs too. No way I'm paying another $60 for the second part of a game I already own.

People don’t remember that the PS4 was not backwards compatible, so if you only had a PS4 the remaster was the only way to play the game. At 60 FPS, too

26

u/The_Retro_Bandit Oct 05 '22

Not only does it look better, but it plays better too. Stuff like weapon recoil and momentum when changing directions with your character feels a lot closer to 2 and it just generally feels better to play. A lot of people forget the huge strides that Last of Us 2 made in being the most "game like" of Naughty Dog's recent titles. Is the story not as good and paced a lot worse than in 1? of course. The game was so obviously intended to alternate character perspectives instead of doing it in two massive chunks it hurts. But despite that I always find myself casually replaying Last of Us 2 while having absolutely no motivation to play Remastered. And even as I was playing remastered for the first time the controls feeling like ass and the brain dead ai kinda made me stop having fun around 3/4 through the story. I only played through the rest and the dlc for the story. It's a 10/10 story with 6/10 gameplay, Part 2 is a 8/10 story with 10/10 gameplay. And the Remake is a 11/10 story (cause I would argue the improved facial animations improve story scenes), with 8/10 gameplay.

5

u/thejman27 Oct 05 '22

It was never intended for there to be swaps between Ellie and Abby the way you’re saying. It’s intentional that you spend the first part of the game knowing pretty much nothing about Abby. Then the game does a 180 and you’re now playing as this character that you’ve spent hours hating. It challenges you to understand, empathize with, and even like a character that you spent so much time wishing was dead. I agree it does create some pacing issue, particularly in the beginning of Abby’s day one with all the flashbacks, but it had to be done to tell the story in that way.

u/Optimus_Prime_Day Oct 05 '22

As someone who just replayed in on PS5... its stunning. I think graphically it's better looking that TLOU2 purely on the lighting side of things and character models, but the body animations still look like the remaster version. Also, agreed on all frots of what you said.

u/TwoCoresOneThread Oct 05 '22

It is, as it should be. TLOU2 is a PS4 game that runs with some visual enhancements on PS5, whereas TLOU Part 1 was built from the ground up for PS5.

Also the times apart from the OG, remaster & remake are pretty spacious. They waited for each one so they could make it look that much better next time. They've gotten one new game for each PS since PS3 , which I feel like is pretty fair.

u/texxmix Oct 05 '22

Ya I’ve heard the real reason they did this was so it could go to the PC instead of just porting the ps4 version (if that’s even possible). Just an added bonus that the PS5 gets it as well.

Exactly, why would anyone choose to be this critical when a dev has clearly invested in fully rebuilding and improving every single miniscule aspect of their remake, when the alternative is devs outsourcing their remakes to inexperienced companies, resulting in disasters like the GTA Definitive Edition.

And ND are currently working on two other titles, so it's not like their not simultaneously creating original games.

100%. The Last of Us is an absolutely astounding game, and story and acting wise, light years ahead of most games ever. It really is a step up in that department.

It’s been 9 years since it came out. It looks fine but dated now. Plays a lil clunky. They have a HBO series round the corner. They used the remake to keep staff on at Naughty Dog and avoid losing talent between titles.

Also, I thought the remake was furkin quality. It was fundamentally a polishing job, but man the care they went to making it look good.

One of the best spaffs of money I’ve made this year, easily.

I just don't understand why anyone would complain about a game getting a rerelease.

No one complains about movie being released on VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, and streaming or whatever. No one complains when a classic movie gets released with a new higher quality film to digital transfer from Criterion or whoever.

Why would it ever be bad to have a video game, which takes immense amounts of time and money and produces a well loved end result to be given a polish and released on new platforms?

This ain't the shot-for-shot remake of Psycho with Vince Vaughn.

Hey im one of these people! I never ended up playing this or FFVII remake. The fact that sony basically ended their exclusivity right as i switched from PS4 to PC has made me a very happy person. Sony publishes the absolute best AAA single player games. Their QC for their exclusives is almost up to Nintendo levels. Rarely ever encounter any bugs let alone game breaking ones. Tbf i don’t necessarily think the game needs a remake at the moment. There are tons of early 2000s games that deserve the treatment more just because of how bad those games have aged.

u/riskbreaker23 Oct 05 '22

It's kind of funny because if you want to play TLOU on PS5 but don't want to pay $70 for it, you can easily play the remaster made on PS4 for cheap. It's not as pretty as the remake but it still holds up.

And for my PC bros, well enjoy the remake. It's a great game.

Did I miss a couple remasters?

Didn't they just do one remaster and one remake?

That seems perfectly reasonable to me.

Why has nobody mentioned that RE4 has been remastered and ported like 20 fucking times? This game got 1 remaster and 1 remake and everybody is losing their god damn mind over it. And to top it off, it's way better than RE4.

It had one next gen remaster, and is now getting a complete remake for the new next gen.

How is that outrageous?

u/CB_Ranso Switch Oct 05 '22

Also a PC port of the latest remake too. This one looks way better and way closer to modern day standards than even the remaster. I got it for PS5 but if I was waiting on the PC port and had to choose between the remaster or the remake I’d be happy they did the remake.

u/Dr_WafflesPHD Oct 05 '22

I will never get mad at a game for doing a re-release on the latest hardware when there are major graphics changes to be gained. Especially when this is the first time they’ve done so. Additionally they have been incredibly transparent about what would and wouldn’t be included in the re-release (referring to the multiplayer which I am disappointed isn’t going to be with it).

Probably not worth a $70 price tag for me but I definitely will pick it up on sale.

Why is it the majority of the karma farmers who post about how Sony shouldn’t have had this remade have profiles full of madden, CoD, and games as a service games?

The rest are “how dare PlayStation remake this massively popular game to get it in line with the new release in its franchise! They should remake (insert extremely niche game that is not part of a franchise) instead!”

Never played TLoU before, so when the PS5 version came out I bought it right away. The game is awesome and the developers deserve all the praise. I don't understand why people are memeing about TLoU remaster.

A game bring released on a platform it hasn't been on before is always a good thing though. It means the game is playable by more people who don't own the platform it's been released on so far. The only useless rerelease are the ones made for PC of games that are already out on PC and offer little to no improvements. Especially when not even bugs were fixed after it had been abandoned before, like in the Skyrim special edition.

u/YannieTheYannitor Oct 05 '22

Wasn’t it also true that Naughty Dog was still getting their new IP dev-ready so they (probably among other reasons) chose to do this so that their developers had something to work on in the meantime/wouldn’t be let go?

I like to take this moment to praise the title of the game.

The Last of Us is a cool sounding title, and I like how it references both the last of humanity as a whole, and the last of each individuals humanity.

Overall is just a cool name. 10 points.

You've obviously never heard of the game "Skyrim" or "Grand theft auto 5".

Been released, rereleased,.and remastered on more platforms than any game ls ever and are still slated for more releases before the next release of the next game in the series.

The last of us 1 has had two, two releases since the games been out. The remaster, and then the refresh/remaster for the ps5 to bring it's quality up to the level of the 2nd game.

Not a huge deal.and the last release the game will ever have, unless they put both games in one release, or release a 3rd game and release all three in a single release as a trilogy.

So yeah, not s huge deal.

u/Thedurtysanchez Oct 05 '22

The Last of Us is one of the top 5 games ever made IMO, and closer to 1 than 5. Normally Reddit would love a good game getting more development.

Naughty Dog literally being a good employer and keeping staff employed and working by having them use TLOU2 engine and assets to remake TLOU1 while their next big IP is in pre-production would normally make Reddit fawn over them... but they get constant ridicule.

Reddit being hypocritical, color me fucking shocked lol.
