and the truest form of greatness in games today.

WeskerChildReborned1329d ago

We can't say that right now cause we haven't actually played it but the game does look like it has alot of potential.

BitbyDeath1329d ago

Normally i'd agree but this is Naughty Dog. Their quality of games have been proven to be a cut above the rest on numerous occassions.

No reason to doubt them this gen, this game will be amazing.

NastyLeftHook01329d ago

im saying it right now, just by what ive seen so far, the game looks amazing. but i understand where your coming from, you cannot judge a game based on 20 minutes or so, but those 20 minutes were jaw dropping.

GrahamGolden1329d ago

it naughty dog no need to play to know its gonna rock .

pixelsword1329d ago

As much as I liked Naughty Dog's games above a lot of other games in it's genre, even Naughty Dog has to jump that hoop for me. You just can't give that game a pass because of who made it. Haze was made by a company with a very good reputation, but in the end the game wasn't too hot, for example. Duke Nukem didn't shine like it did in the older days, Id didn't succeed with Rage like I thought they would.

The list goes on, so what I'm saying is that I'm not sitting at the table and wiping my mouth before I take a bite, especially just after leaving the men's room; that just looks... weird.

Double post

Double post, again?

miyamoto1329d ago

they should have shown how to battle clickers for more fast paced action the bored RE 6 fanboys & whiners are clamoring for.

Shane Kim1329d ago (Edited 1329d ago )

Naughty Dog is a top developer, end of story. Just take a look at their history, each gen they make top quality games, and at top of the pinnacle is Uncharted 2, regarded as one of the best games ever made and industry standard as of it's release...LAst of Us won't be an exception.

And just to fill in, Haze wasn't a bad game at all, I bet you didn't even play it. It got hacked into pieces because it was released at a time when the PS3 got bashed from every site in existance.

It's not really a "pass" to say that we expect their game to be awesome. It's just a safe bet. Sure, they could show their cards, and the only hand we see is a high card, 8 of diamonds, but this isn't really gambling. A crappy game from Naughty Dog (especially after seeing gameplay) would shock the industry. It would be like snowfall in Hell.

@ shane:

If you said Haze wasn't a bad game, then it was YOU who probably didn't play the game. I bought Haze, played it, then promptly returned it. The only good thing about it was a couple of the multiplayer boards, but like a lot of people, I swallowed the kool-aid because Free Radical made Time Splitters, so therefore it had to be good.

- Whiny punk of a character (my main gripe with Baldur in Too Human as well)

- Those idiot crackhead squad-mates that went "Boosh!" all of the time

- character's too stupid to see that he was played by both sides (again like Baldur)

- hit-and-miss graphics

- terrible dialogue

The only pluses in the single player were the atmosphere and the overall plot.

@ inveni0

Yeah, but you can take those words and paste Rage, Haze and other games there and you'd be correct... and incorrect.

See?

inveni01328d ago

Anyone who thought Rage or Haze looked good after seeing gameplay was obviously blind. Both of those games had horrible AI. And if the devs don't put time into AI, then they certainly aren't going to put time anywhere else. And that'll just leave the game feeling lifeless.

LoU, however, shows incredible AI...perhaps the best in the industry (unless what we've seen so far is just some kind of joke). That means that they take the game seriously. They want it real...visceral... And that only points to good things.

i'll give you all my opinion once i have played it!!

at the mo, everything else wrote especially by the people on here are just fanboy wetdreams

smashcrashbash1329d ago

I agree with the author. The fact that the AI acts so differently and are so responsive to what you do makes it a lot more frightening and thrilling. Just imagine if the monsters act this way. I especially liked the part where the guy ran off to hide when he saw Joel had a gun and ran off to plan an attack against him and Joel actually had to hunt him down. You actually felt the suspense as you turned every corner ready to attack as soon as the guy appeared and then he just suddenly jumped out wielding a Molotov. That made me jump and I wasn't even playing the game.

HammadTheBeast1329d ago

No regenerating health. Enough said.

Anticipation is killing me.

Reverent1329d ago

I'm just surprised the author didn't write, "Last of Us, an Epic Mess" in the title then write "if I was a total tool" or some crap in the article to attempt to justify the horrendously hit-seeking title. I guess the guy learned from his God of War Ascension article. This is a good thing^

majiebeast1329d ago (Edited 1329d ago )

Capcom moves to uncharted with resident evil 6 while naughty dog is moving towards resident evil with last of us thats pretty funny. So whats next resident evil 7 goes back to being what it used to be?

jghvhv1329d ago

Resident Evil 7 will be a Kart Racer.

Hicken1329d ago

Still laughing. +bubbles.

Run_bare1329d ago

"to: Youngster Joey"

hahahaha... that's funny..

Jill Valentine: Aw, snap! I locked my keys in my kart!

Barry Burton: Jill, here's a lockpick. It might come in handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you.

Based off of what we've seen, no I don't agree. I don't find anything frightening from what they've shown or talked about. The only thing I think of is, "Why is Nathan Drake in this game?"

HammadTheBeast1329d ago

But he's not....

4/10 for effort though. LOL.

Outside_ofthe_Box1329d ago

Don't tell me you are trying to say the game is similar to Uncharted please. What will it take for you haters to realize that this game is nothing like UC? Is it because it's made by ND? If ND wasn't developing it, would that be what it takes for you to see TLoU as it's own game?

GTRrocker6661329d ago

Derp both games have the color green derp

SAE1329d ago

if he is saying the truth then uncharted is similar to crash :) ...

GrahamGolden1328d ago (Edited 1328d ago )

dude go back to your cod zombies or PEGI for everyone game ...let the mature ppl do the talk here thx
