The Last of Us II Joins Next Year’s Amazing Video Game Lineup
Next year is going to be crazy good for video games. I am most looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077, which will hopefully be amazing. But we’re also getting that Avengers game, Watch Dogs: Legion, a new Vampire: The Masquerade and so much more!
Now we can add The Last of Us II to the list. It’s coming out on Feb. 21.
I didn’t get to play the original Last of Us until I finally splurged on a Playstation 4 last year. I enjoyed the game, but I wasn’t as blown away as everyone else seems to be. I think too much time had passed and too much of the game had infused into the world of video gaming. But it’s still a great story, and I’m excited for a sequel!
I especially enjoy the fact that the protagonist of The Last of Us II is a queer woman. You don’t see that very often, even in 2019.
Heck, the protagonist of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is yet another white male, who I assume is going to be straight.
As much as I love Star Wars, I’m not particularly excited for Fallen Order. Every trailer I’ve seen paints the game as really on rails. The game seems to control what you do, where you go, who you fight, how you fight them; I’m a more open world sort of guy.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes out this year, on Nov. 15.
