Time to lay off the Fosters.
Anywho. We've kinda strayed.
You mentioned The Last of Us being "too much effort". How so? In the video they talked about crafting things from inside your bag taking seconds. They wanted you to be able to craft and pull stuff out at a moments notice depending on the situation, instead of playing tetris with your inventory and disconnecting yourself from the game by spending too much time in a menu.
Even if you're just gaming casually this game shouldn't be overwhelming.
