    I cannot see myself ever buying a $50 game again. Maybe a PS 4 when the used price is right. I bought my PS 3 2 years ago for like $90 with 8 very good games.

    Games nowadays are on sale quickly, some of them in a few months. You probably will be able to get it by Christmas for $30, even cheaper if you can wait longer.

    I only buy AAA games that I'm interested in at full price, and that means a couple or three per year, more or less. Most of my games I buy them dirt cheap on sales.

    Speaking of prices. The Last of us is $14.99, but there are 141 different add-ons to purchase. Should I get any of those? If they are good I want to get them, if it is just cosmetic then nah.

    Are we talking about TLoU part I, right? The original game?

    In that case, the remastered version, the one on PS4, comes with everything included. At least the one that's on sale physically. If you buy digital, there's a ton of add-ons for the multiplayer, but I wouldn't waste any money on them. You won't need them to enjoy the single-player game, and I don't know if the multiplayer still works. I guess so, but I don't know.

    There was, tho, a DLC that expanded a little bit the story of one of the characters, called "Left Behind". It's included in the remastered disc, I'm not sure if the digital game comes with it or not. And I'm not sure if the original game on PS3 has it included either.

    It's not a must-have, you can understand and enjoy the full game without, but, as I said, it expands the background of an important character, and some things in TLoU II make a little bit more sense. In any case, it's not a deal-breaker. Just a curiosity that helps a little bit. And, as an add-on, it's an intense one, well-done, but not too long.

    Other than that DLC, and only if you want to have all the story, I wouldn't bother with anything else.

    $14.99 for the remastered version. I won't buy the add-ons.

    I'm about to move Ghost of Tsushima into the top 10. Probably Bloodborne is the one out (due to me being a talentless gamer and the game being too difficult). But Ghost of T. is growing on me. Combat is really something and the landscapes and portrait of Japanese culture are mostly great.

    The haikus you compose are not that great, tho...

    Anyways, it's not a borderline top 10 game of this generation, which means it's pretty great!
