Game 1: In a battle of first person non-shooters, Portal 2 advanced in dominating fashion, with Mass Effect 2 garnering only a single vote. Portal 2 is the lowest seed remaining as a nine seed, and the only game left that has been the underdog in every matchup.
Game 2: The Last of Us made a strong run as one of the newest game in the tournament, but ultimately fell to the PC classic, Half Life 2. It's a battle of Valve in the final matchup of the Liberty City region.
I played a few hours of HL2 when it came out. I watched my brother-in-law play a few hours of TLoU when it came out. In my experiences, HL2 left a much deeper and more enjoyable impression. Simple as that.
Plus, Beyond Two Souls is the legit Ellen Page game. Get Ell-N or Get Out!!
Beyond Two Souls is pretty good, btw. Just sayin'. I'd probably put it above TLoU. But that's just my tastes.
It was the part where the protagonist was on her own against insurmountable odds and had to survive on only her wits and uncanny ability to shoot stuff. ... remember that part?
OK, more specifically, it was in some cabins by a lake. Also there were some scenes/areas with that gruff lookin' dude and we were lobbing molotov cocktails at people and... something about Ellen Page getting captured and then she stabs a guy with a spoon or something?? I dunno, it was quite a while ago =)
Oh I remember that part just fine. It's a pivotal part of the game from the story perspective. Pretty great chapter I thought honestly. It would have had a better impact had you been playing from the beginning (or playing at all, lol). Still think you should play it if given the chance.
