The Last Of Us: How Naughty Dog Made Ellie And Enemies Feel Human

Siliconera.com - In The Last of Us, players control Joel who has seen the world fall apart after a "fungapocalypse" while Ellie was born after modern civilization crumbled. Ellie is completely controlled by the computer, but The Last of Us won’t be one long escort mission. Ellie has been designed to react to situations and she will grow throughout the game. In this interview, Bruce Straley, Game Director, explains how Naughty Dog developed Ellie and the enemy artificial intelligence. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

This is what I like about ND, they push themselfs to create better games. They chose to have a desert setting in Uncharted 3 because it was hard to do sand particles and they wanted the challenge....this is why at the time I wanted them to get best studio at the VGAs...oh but I forgot, as much as I love them and their games, Bethesda won, despite Skyrim still being full of bugs.

I really hope The Last of Us is a one off game for ND...only because with how amazing it looks I wouldn't want it to be stretched over three games. I'd rather them wrap up the story at the end of the game, least with Uncharted Drake could go on differn't adventures for his games.

exactly, it not only the graphics, gameplay, its the cutscenes, the audio, the quality, the ai, every game nd does is gold.

To hell with Bethesda.

I always thought nothing next year will be as powerful as bioshock but the last of us seems to be on par with the greatness of bioshock infinite. I cannot wait to see the next trailer that they showed to the chosen ones behind closed doors.

By making better AI and more realistic features. I'm so looking forward to Last of Us. I wish their was a release date already.
thezeldadoth  +   820d ago
ellie feels human? not according to the gameplay trailers. She seemed obnoxious and commented on way too much. "oh no not good" while getting almost slammed by a truck? Trying too hard to be quirky IMO. Games are getting so scripted now it hurts and this game isn't doing anything to change it. Uncharted 2 was a great balance between script and gameplay and uncharted 3 went way too far in the cinematics direction. I feel this will go even further.

All games are scripted.
Code just don't make itself.
smashcrashbash  +   819d ago
Really? So how would have done it? You obviously have done a lot of writing for video games so you would know better wouldn't you.What degree of quirkiness and commentary would you do for a girl that lives in a broken apocalyptic city being chased by monsters and scavengers with a violent man blowing people's heads off? I am listening.
thezeldadoth  +   819d ago
so you've never went to a movie, read a book, or played a game that you didn't like? You've never criticized any work of art. Art is meant to be interpreted. Apparently this place isn't for video game discussion, its for corporation worship. Sad.

I really hope this game releases before the next-gen mishmash next year which would ultimately water down everyone's attention. This could easily deliver the same impact Uncharted 2 had on the industry.

It won't be as revolutionary as everyone is making it out to be, so I wouldn't expect to still not see A.I running into walls and shouting "WHERE IS HE?!" when you're right in front of them. Animation, gun play, and story is what will make this game great.
MiamiACR21  +   820d ago
I regress, the game WILL be revolutionary, and WILL change our views on how A.I. is implemented into video games forever. This game will stand the testament of time, and 30 years from now people will look back and say "Remember that 'Last of Us' game? Man, I'm still waiting for games to get better than that".
BitbyDeath  +   820d ago
It's amazing that this level of detail and AI can be done on todays hardware, i wasn't expecting these sorts of accomplishments to be made until at least nextgen.
Gorbenshore  +   820d ago
I agree. Just imagine what next gen will do.
r21  +   819d ago
this game just sounds more impressive every time i hear about it :D the human enemies AI sound pretty epic, what i wanna know now is the monsters of the game. the fungi infected people.
