The Last of Us is nothing like you think it is

Do you remember that demo of The Last of Us that we saw during Sony’s E3 2012 keynote? Looked awesome, didn’t it? In fact, it looked so good that some audiences thought it was a little scripted.

It wasn’t. Not in the slightest bit.

It's Naughty Dog...the only thing I can guess is i'll be saying

WeskerChildReborned2235d ago

Naughty Dog is truly one of best developers ever.

Hisiru2235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

I really can't believe I am going to say it (because the Uncharted series is awesome) but Last of Us looks even better than Uncharted. Very impressive indeed.

Last of Us and Watch Dogs are the most impressive games at this year's E3 (imo). Not just because of the graphics, but the characters, the gameplay... everything looks amazing.

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME2235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

the best part is how naughty dog lets their ip's go away, they've made hits, each generation starting on the psone, yet they always know that they need to move on at somepoint, regardless of how good a game it is and try something original, (looking at you nintendo, and microsoft with halo odst, reach, and 4)

but there needs to be a conclusion to uncharted, with a vibe of end to the series going on. pleassse, just one more....

Last of Us looks promising as hell. i'm little skeptical about the Watch Dogs though. it looks like an open world game with phone or any electronic tapping abilities. let's see how the story rolls out.

Right up there with Rockstar and 2K.


Mad you don't have a PS3? Nintendo and Capcom have been making rehashes for the past 2 decades now. How many Street Fighters can we possibly need? There's been at least 30 now. Naughty Dog has pushed every PS console to its limits, from Crash on the PS1 to Uncharted on the PS3, and this game beats tons of others out there. The game is in no way linear, it offers at least 10 different ways to face every encounter, or the option to not even fight at all. The AI was dynamic, it knew when the character as out of bullets because of the click of an empty chamber, it ambushed him by sneaking beside a wall and so much more.You sound like an 11 year old right now.

@ HammadTheOne

If he sounds like an 11 year old, it's due to his fanatical obsession with Japan and everything that comes with that. Now that isn't a racist comment since I love Japan and the culture and its people, but j-blaze has such an immature mentality it's quite disturbing.

What you said is completely right and he will never know it because whatever facts are presented, he will ignore them due to his incredibly pathetic hate for Naughty Dog.

@ j-blaze

ND are a developer of Sony, so they have no room to expand and milk games to the extent that Nintendo or Capcom have. As such, they know when enough is enough for the sake of the franchise. This is what Capcom don't understand, and they have almost dragged the Resident Evil franchise fully from its roots and milked several other of their IPs so that people are just fed up.

Nintendo manages to keep their Mario, Zelda etc fresh due to new gameplay styles, but Nintendo are a console manufacturer and have been around for much longer. You call it a fact, but that is just common sense. Nintendo and Capcom are publishing companies - ND isn't, but is a developer. Doesn't stop them from being one of the best developers in the world. :p

"Ellie was scripted the AI wasn't "dynamic" the whole time.....worst of all the game was nothing special and it was linear"

What in the world are you talking about??? Oh, I know... BS!! Utter fanboy spewing BS! Ellie is the primary AI, of course she's not scripted. How would that work exactly? She is "dynamic" and her AI opted to throw a brick at the enemy. When Joel was being strangled, her AI dictated for her to come and stab the guy in the back. That is what I call dynamic, and you are deluded.

And the game is nothing special? Well... why doesn't this surprise me? In your little Japan-obsessed bubble, it's an overrated rubbish game. Meanwhile, most other people think it looks really good. Do you actually know anything about the game other than watching the videos that have been released? I doubt it. And furthermore, tell me what is so special about that awesome game Resident Evil 6. What makes it so much better?

naughty dog is an amazing group of developers. like the square of old.

WeskerChildReborned2235d ago

To tell you the truth, i think some Playstation exclusive developers are some of the best

srcBFMVBMTH2235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

True, the top 5 first party Sony devs TO ME are (in no specific order):

Sony Santa Monica
Naughty Dog
Sucker Punch
SCE Japan Studio (Team Ico/Team Siren)
Guerrilla Games

Honorable mentions:

Media Molecule
Polyphony Digital
SCE Bend Studio
Evolution Studios

If Quantic Dream was 1st party (which they probably will be in the future) than it would be top 6 devs lol.

Imalwaysright2235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

Sony might have many flaws and made many mistakes over the years but there is no denying that theyre ace at spoting talent and most important of all they are not afraid to take risks and let their studios have creative freedom. As long as they have studios like ND, PD, Team Ico, Media Molecule, Santa Monica... on their side ill always be "forced" to buy a Sony console.

C0MPUT3R2235d ago

I remember it was the same thing with Uncharted 2. Everyone was saying "that isn't in game". Until they played it :)

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME2235d ago (Edited 2235d ago )

i remember deciding i didn't want a xbox anymore after watching that amazing uncharted 2 E3 09 demo.

I remember it like it was yesterday............. cue flashback

Hufandpuf2235d ago

There was someone on N4G claiming that TLOU and Watchdogs were scripted. This proves them wrong.
