If you already played The Last of Us 1, you already know the basics of Crafting and the importance of ingredients. Being able to craft things like bombs, health kits, and ammunition is extremely useful, so you'll want to try and pick them up as you find them!

I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
