Pretty recently? Tlou on PS3 was a good looking game like I said, but nowhere near the best on the system as many people have claimed in terms of actual fidelity imo. It was pretty on par for a lot of other games in second half of ps3s life.Who talked about cutscenes? When was the last time you played some PS3 games and compared them graphically to TLOU? TLOU was not only about artstyle, it was about amount of details and great (for PS3) lighting, next-gen animations, all of the that in a 3rd person shooter.
I don't know what "next gen animations" are, or what about the amount off details in the game was more than other games. I'll give you some parts of the baked lighting in natural lighting conditions looked great for a PS3 game. But other times it looked completely off and wrong
