    A lot of people also can't handle the fact that the killed off Joel.
    Which don't really get why so many people have a problem with Ellie being the main character rather than Joel, because if you look at the franchise as a whole, it's really been more Ellie's story than Joel's from the beginning. Yeah, you play as Joel in the first game, but his story kicks off with him being put in charge of Ellie, and then you have the comic, American Dreams, which is a prequel focused on Ellie, and then Left Behind also focuses on Ellie between AD and the first game. So out of the four parts of the franchise we've gotten so far, only 1 of them focuses on Joel.

    Yeah, definitely a good idea. Should have been done much sooner, but at least this should help cut down on the review-bombing.

    Yeah, a good idea to dampen down on TLJ-esque review bombing/picketing by trolls and malcontents (but fair enough not everyone is going to be happy with a product, no matter what, but it's gotten so ridiculous in the late 2010s).

    I would think it's more than fair. The other alternative would be to do away with user reviews altogether. Mind you, regular reviews by professional critics are vetted and would seem to be more trustworthy when considering the pool of user reviews.

    I think it's pretty obvious why so many people hate Abby's storyline. She turns on a bunch of people and kills them all in order to save a kid. That would never happen in The Last of Us universe.
