I played through it twice - once on hard and once on survivor - and I thought the gameplay was basically fine. I liked how it forced you to think strategically about when to sneak and when to engage in open combat, and I thought the sneak mechanic was handled well. The shooting mechanic wasn't the easiest to work with, but I think that was a function of the PS4 controller not really being well-suited for aim & shoot gameplay in general. 

My biggest complaint was the lack of variety in enemy types and behaviors, but it's fairly justified, given the setting. There was also that one section during the sewer chapter that seemed like it was bugged (the infected would start going nuts for no apparent reason).

How in the butt f***** hell did you beat the bloater in the high school part on survivor??? I barely beat that part on medium lol

Tech demo or not that was an awesome trailer.   

Re: Ellie keep in mind we are forward at least several years.   Any differences in appearance are just her being a young adult now.  Don’t see the issue.  

Can’t wait.   Given Naughty Dog’s track record I have nothing but high hopes here.

Yeah, talking about the way Ellie looks is a little nitpicky IMO. Game looks insanely legit!! Will be a day 1 purchase unless I'm caught into something else. Just hope I can get more than 16-18 hours of game play out of it.

I'm just nitpicking. She looked more familiar in the first trailer. I just want a release date so that I can stop looking for news/info.

Glad they aren't dancing around her sexuality given how much reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'ing was had about that after the DLC for TLOU1 dropped.

Here's some stuff from Neil putting what was shown last night into a little bit more context

In The Last of Us Part II, Ellie is now 19 and has found a semblance of peace and normality living in Jackson. She’s had a chance to be a teenager and forge lasting relationships. When that peace is disrupted by a violent act, Ellie is thrust into a brutal journey of retribution, fueled by a need to bring those that have wronged her to justice, pushing her to her very limits.

I also like how it paints the choice Joel made at the end of part 1 as not being as world dooming as people interpreted it as (for now).

To me it’s fine even if it ended up being a huge decision global-impact wise.   It makes it more of a human move that TBH we all kinda get given what Ellie means to Joel.  Given the battle scene in the trailer, I’m guessing the world is still a pretty brutal place to live in - seems doubtful that Joel’s decision hasn’t had a huge impact in keeping the Cordyceps as a real threat (would be surprising if ppl were still that brutal with no spectre of apocalypse left).  Which again I’m totally fine with.  The kind of grey that made LoU a classic story-wise  IMO.   I'd actually be disappointed if they took Joel off the hook completely for that decision, the impact of it creates much of the drama behind that ending.

While I'd like it to be otherwise, you're probably right. I'd be surprised if we saw all those elements in the gameplay. 

The people surprised by how the trailer opened clearly didn't play the DLC. 

I don't know why anyone who played LoU and wants to see the E3 trailer on Opening Night wouldn't play the DLC.     Now, if you didn't like LoU, I guess, but then I don't know why those ppl would be set to see the LoU2 trailer live then, either.

Most interesting thing I noticed in the gameplay portion of the trailer is that there seems to be a melee dodge mechanic now. Definitely hoping to learn more about how that's implemented.
