From what's been reported Naughty Dog is a horrendous place to work at. I know they feel under pressure to get games out but if they were just open and honest with gamers I think we'd all accept delays to games if it means the people making them aren't treated like absolute gooseberry fool.

Seems to be a theme with game devs unfortunately, quite a number of brilliant studios have been exposed for having horrendous crunch periods. I hope the industry as a whole learns from this and other related stories and reduce crunch for all. It will mean waiting longer for games, but I'd prefer it if people weren't exploited and selfishly; I always have a back log of games to play anyway.
I think one issue is the price of videogames is stuck at the $60/£40 level generally speaking, certainly over the past decade whereas the cost of making them is going up and up. And for most games come tumbling down in price after a few months on the shelves.
Publishers don't want to rock the consumer expectation boat and neither do they want to reduce their profit margins. So they force unpaid labour on their employees.
Maybe I'm easily pleased but I played the game on PS3 and 4 and don't remember any particular graphics issues. Maybe there was a bit of slowdown in some sections but nothing terrible or game breaking so what were the issues?
I can understand how you may get bored as the game is a bit samey after a while I suppose and if the story isn't gripping you that's fair enough.
I bought the remastered version when it was on sale on ShopTo for £15 or something like that, never actually got around to playing it though The PS3 version was fantastic though, played it through a few times and can’t remember too many graphical issues with it.
