I watched all the recent trailers after finishing the game, and they are definitely misleading. I do think the complainers have a valid point there. They do frame the product like it’s The Continuing Adventures of Joel and Ellie.

I didn’t watch them before playing the game, purely to avoid spoilers. Turns out they would’ve had the opposite effect, but I’m glad I did anyway.

Saying that...

Anyone else feel a bit misled by the marketing and previews for the game?

I remember certain previews saying certain things which are just flat out lies.

Looking back at some of the pre-release videos they’ve changed certain characters and models. Clearly to create more impact when you play the finished product but its also a bit misleading.

I think they had to be misleading to an extent, otherwise it would be

If the choice is between misleading or to pretty much spoil the major plot point around the story, I'm fine with them misleading. I realise some may not feel that way.

I didn't watch or read much, most if not all games go through changes, and there was a delay.

Could have been to avoid spoilers, or it just changed... I have seen "false advertising" which always makes me

enjoying game+, access to all the weapons at the start makes combat more fun, and keep finding lots of stuff I missed, wish the silenced smg had a single shot mode!

Still amazed by all the tiny details

Even with the lighter moments It does sometimes feel a bit too grim, "that" scene was still very difficult to watch for a second time......
