Wow, that's a harsh assessment. I agree there are nicer parts to the new mechanic, and some of the new things are cool like prone etc. But I have replayed TLOU a few times and never found it to be a problem. Were you playing the remaster or original?
I was playing the remaster. Not sure how that's different to the original as I've only ever played the remaster on PS4.
I'm sure if I had persevered I would have eventually gotten used to the differences but I guess I wasn't prepared to have to learn from scratch again.
