That is something you can't tell. That is up to the person's opinion. If you think you're gonna get screwed over then don't buy it lol. No one knows what the MP is like yet and even then.. Its based on opinions whether is good or bad. Typically though, the masses decide. As of now though.. We don't have it in our hands.

Totally agree with you there. I don't know what's in the quote though. probably a brain fart.

Not saying anything about multiplayer doesn't build hype. If they wanted to build hype without showing much of the multiplayer then they could post small snippets of footage on something like Vine(basically gifs with sound).

 

 


I think it kind of does, people are begging for mp details now, NaughtyDog wants this kind of attention for their game to increase the number of buyers and have more people noticing TLOU, than if they reveal mp details, their's going to be way more people talking about it compared to now. They're building up everyones anticipation so if they reveal details there will be better end results for them.

 

Edit:


Neil Druckmann also said that he thinks it's better for a player when they don't know anything about the game and jump in blind not knowing what to expect.

Neil says at 4:15 that they've revealed (like they've revealed anything) as little as possible to get enough hype about the game out there

Am I reading correct, ND wants to build hype for the MP by not showing it? Dumbest logic ever.

 

Gamers are the worst consumers especially blind fanboys who latch unto everything these corporate developers say. 

 

Showing off your product is what builds the hype etc.

 

Neil's quote was about the Single Player & unfortunately for them their entire plot got leaked with the ending all over the net, not showing the MP is stupid, a trailer would do wonders for the game.

I'm going to start counting how many times I see the word fanboy being used. 

 

It's going to be hard to keep track. 

 

But I'm dedicated to my work.

 I think Neil's quote is only applicable to the single player where the story matters, and not something like mutliplayer which people are supposed to keep coming back to. You don't hype what is " the best MP ever conceived" by not showing it off. The only hype they get there is from the usual group of fanboys.
