The Last Of Us How It Will Change Games Forever

Uncharted is Naughty Dog‘s enemy. Not literally, of course. We re not suggesting dartboards with Nathan Drake’s smirking face break up the ambience of its office walls, a dull thud-thud- thud of frustrated dart flings heard in the Santa Monica air should it ever tire of creating games about that guy in that game chasing that treasure.

I think The Last of Us would revolutionize gaming further from what Uncharted did. The Uncharted games are amazing even though some may disagree storywise, but it has great characters, scenery, gameplay and more. TLoU will take that to new heights and I cannot wait for that!

Pandamobile2396d ago do you expect it to do that? From what we've seen so far, the only thing we can tell is that it will be a lot like the Uncharted series. Character driven, expertly crafted narrative with top notch third person shooter game mechanics.

It'll be a good game, I'm sure, but I don't expect it to be "revolutionary".

MAJ0R2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

Dude WTF are you talking about? You haven't even seen any gameplay. For all we know it could be a carbon copy of Uncharted with zombies.

I hate it when people say a game is amazing or sucks when they don't even know what it's like.

Afirmitive2396d ago

From what I've read, I don't think it will be even close to Uncharted gameplay wise. It's a survival horror game with not only those zombie things, but actual humans as your enemies too. You will also have to preserve bullets and probably bandages because when it's gone, it's gone!!

badz1492396d ago

this is getting ridiculous! I'm a huge fan of ND just as much as the next guy but to expect TLoU to change games forever?? WTF? stop putting so much pressure on the game already by hyping it too much as it already is at the brink of being over-hyped already! no sane gamer will ever think that TLoU will be something other than the next great game from ND and by that, I mean who ever think that it will revolutionize anything is just insane or simply stupid!

ieatbabies2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

Kids like you HYPE it up not the developers.

Y_51502396d ago

It will change on how we play games, you can throw bricks!

RedDead2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

Uncharted didn't's very rare for a game to do that. It is one of the first shooters(if not the first?) to do the whole Cutscene/gameplay mixup which gives it a movie like feel, yeah along with the good gunplay, scenery and characters. It has some of the best levels in anything too imo

-The train and train wreckage level in U2, just really well designed, can do it stealthy if you want
-the Helicopter assaulting the building in U2
-The Glacier in U2. First time in a game I felt "I wanna be there" after seeing a little stream of water rolling through it
-The WHOLE boat wreckage area/ship afterwards in Un3, great level design with the swimming around boats/turrets and stuff. They even stuck in a rogue wave, an then put you on a sinking ship, great scenery here.
-The puzzles in Un3, best puzzles in the series, quite creative
-Un1, the first Nazi area with the monsters. A random Wtf came from me in this level

I could go on, but eh...back to point, Uncharted didn't revolutionize, it's just really good.

BDSE2396d ago

One of the first games to do that whole cutscene/gameplay mixup?

Dude, for real?

dark-hollow2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

sigh... this gen kids dont know the difference between a really great game (uncharted 2 is one of my favorite this gen) and a revolutionary one (the one that changes/ influences TONS of developers after it by bringing something new/ spawn a new genre)

ffviii/ffix/ffX arent revolutionary and didnt change the jrpg games after it but yet they are one of the greatest games of all time.

Rattlehead202396d ago


You really are boring..

Dovahkiin2396d ago

I think the majority agree with you.

TekoIie2396d ago

A game could be all those things but you missed out something which really determines whether a game is good or not... Is it fun?

I could hardly give a crap about story, graphics or gameplay if im not having fun.

Hicken2396d ago

Good story, graphics, and gameplay are kinda needed in order to be fun. When was the last time you played a game that had all that and wasn't fun?(To be honest, I'm a little afraid of your answer.)

TekoIie2395d ago (Edited 2395d ago )

Well hicken isnt that whats happening now? Most people who buy COD dont play the SP and im sure thats the same for BF3 and many other top shooters.

So i guess im wrong on gameplay. Maybe thats all you need...

Genecalypse2396d ago

We havent even seen gameplay

StrongMan2396d ago

It's the Naughty Godz, no gameplay needed.

Kran2396d ago

Just because a developer made a great game in the past doesnt mean all their games will be hits. Think what you like about ND, but every, EVERY developer makes a few bad games.

I aint saying TLOU will be bad, but you just dont know. That's why we need to see some gameplay.

b_one2396d ago

@Kran Naughty Godz - still no need gameplay...

Kran2396d ago

But then... naughty can sometimes mean bad.

Shouldn't that make them Bad Dogs/Bad Gods?

IHateYouFanboys2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

if its anything like Uncharted, it wont change games forever.

for as much praise as they get, the uncharted games did nothing new. they just did things in a slicker way than most games of the genre.

to even suggest that this will "change games forever" is ridiculous, especially when we're yet to even see a second of gameplay.

colonel1792396d ago

For instance, a lot of reviews that have been up about the demo that was shown to the press have stated that The Last of Us us completely different than Uncharted. Even this article said it, but I guess not a lot people read it.

We definitely have to see gameplay, but Naughty Dog really knows what they are doing. They will definitely create a master piece.

humbleopinion2396d ago

The thing that uncharted did do is mash up the platforming-action-puzzle structure of Tomb Raider with the cover based shooting of Gears. Yes, not a single new idea, but an excellent mould of other ideas - and this is something we never saw before Uncharted.

The Last of Us doesn't look like uncharted but it does look again like a mix of other gameplay ideas: Resident Evil, I am Alive, etc.

PixL2396d ago

To change games, we need more storage capacity on distribution media. It's sad to see how Max Payne is struggling with the ancient DVD format. Such a waste if you consider how well Rockstar are using what they can.

M1chl2396d ago

What do you mean? MP3 is shipped on 2xDVD and even cutscenes are comparable quality included on PS3s Blu-Ray. Its a linear game, so it would really doesn't matter if game was on 10xDVD, but it isn't. But yeah I am kinda afraid of how R* handle the GTA V, with DVD limitation, but MP3 is really different story...

PixL2396d ago

Graphics quality in general. DVD limits texture quality. It shows a lot in games these days.

BTW: MP3 doesn't have any CGI cutscenes.

M1chl2396d ago

It has, just look at DF article on eurogamer : ) These cutscenes, have such a high bitrate, that it seems that they aren't a CGI cutscenes. A I don't know much bigger limit for textures is small RAM/VRAm memory in consoles in general.
