Let’s see what the final sales figures show.
Hey fuck nuggets. If you’re so “mad” about The Last of Us 2 being “review bombed” get mad when shill media do the same but heap unwarranted praise so they can keep getting their access. Your hypocrisy is dripping from your rapid lips.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Griggs, a long time critic of the Last of Us 2 and Naughty Dog and their handling of The Last of Us 2, was recently suspended from Twitter after receiving several copyright strikes on Youtube related to the leaks of the game from several weeks ago.
From Bounding Into Comics:
Twitter has permanently suspended Geeks + Gamers founder Jeremy Griggs from the platform after receiving multiple DMCA complaints from Naughty Dog over memes Griggs posted to his account mocking The Last Of Us Part II.
The events leading to his suspension began on June 16th, when Griggs posted a humorous image of Abby, the secondary protagonist of The Last of Us II, with the head of professional wrestler Scott Steiner photoshopped over her, mocking the character’s extremely stocky and muscular build:
This image, and presumably other memes now deleted by Twitter, earned multiple DMCA takedown requests from Naughty Dog, which initially resulted in Griggs’ account being locked.
After his account was unlocked following a forced removal of the ‘offending content,’ Griggs responded by continuing to repost the meme and telling Naughty Dog to “f*** off.”
Griggs was among several YouTubers, including Ryan Kinel and Heel vs Babyface, who received DMCA strikes from Sony for simply mentioning the game on their Youtube channels. Needless to say, Jeremy and the rest still have much more to say about the Naughty Dog debacle, noting that head Dog Neil Druckman is still attacking critics and fans of the game.
The Last of Us Part II is a bleak, distressing game, and is tremendously violent. It’s not justified. And unfortunately the people at Naughty Dog think themselves clever by the way they’ve behaved and by making a thirty-hour video game to make some vague point about how no one is good. The shenanigans of this game developer have already proven the point without us all having to spend 25-30 hours on something with so bleak a premise.
