GTA V preference provides The Last of Us dilemma

It has been a while since we last saw any new The Last of Us eye candy, but just as many hoped – we had a brand new peek at the game during the 2012 VGAs over the weekend in Los Angeles. A brand new trailer has been revealed by Naughty Dog showing a combination of both gameplay and cutscenes, but more importantly for fans – a confirmation at last on a solid release date for the game.

The game is expected to be one of the final highlights on the PlayStation 3 along with GTA V before the PS4 arrives, although having said that there is now Dark Souls 2 apparently on the way to the PS3 as well, thus proving that the console is far from dead just yet.

Ellie features heavily throughout just like the previous reveals for the game, while there is also a glimpse of civilization as well in a busy town area which doesn’t appear to have been infected yet. Going back to GTA V though, is there possibly a danger of The Last of Us playing second fiddle to Rockstar’s game, since we know it will release during Spring 2013? (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360)

I can't wait for them both, roll on 2013!

I'll definetily be getting both. Though TLOU will be my priority in 2013.

I must "live" that game
miyamoto  +   935d ago
yeah will get both games
end of the line for this FUD flame bait article.

Were publishers afraid of launching games along side COD every year? nope.

Believe me the people that have a PS3 that I know WILL be getting The Last of Us no matter if GTA V comes out within the same month. Idk I guess the whole concept of the game is something PS3 gamers have been craving for a while. There is a ton of games coming out in the first half of next year but I'm pretty sure people will find a way to get the game. Personally I prefer it more than GTA V since I wasn't a big fan of IV. Plus I always prefer somewhat linear games over open world because I always invest myself into the story more. It's rare when I get through an open world game. Pretty sure I ain't the only one.

I think GTAV will obviously sell more, but everyone that bought and played Uncharted will definitely buy TLOU. It's also more mature and its violence cant be marketed like GTAV (which is comical).

Damn, TLOU won everything at this year's E3, it blows everyone away everytime we see a trailer or gameplay video. And it's ND ffs! They've proved enough this gen with Uncharted.

All everyone is thinking is if this is GOTY material or GOTD material.

GTA and Rockstar's Games has been more mature since GTA IV (and that's one of the things many people didn't like in the new GTA, mixed with the realism). It just does not have a serious tone as the TLOU seems to have but that doesn't mean they're not on the same level of maturity (this gen's Rockstar titles are just satirical but mature).

Since GTA V is on schedule and slated to be insane, while the last of us is the newest of the Duke Nukem Forever fiascos... I'd go with GTA V.

"while the last of us is the newest of the Duke Nukem Forever fiascos.."

What??? I think you're thinking of The Last Guardian. The only conclusion I could draw from your comment is that you're talking about the delayed release of TLG, but TLoU is a different game lol.

Ot, Last of Us for sure. GTA V, not interested. Been there done that 4 times, with 4 leaving me cold.

But tlou seem so well done, mature, deep in every field and is what most gamers want need and will love to play I will get it day one for sure is the game that I'm itching to play just like when demon soul's was coming out, I enjoy uc2 but ds was more intriguing to play and pleasant. I juat wanted to finish uc2 to play ds since I already have had start playing It and enjoy it very much.

Or you can, I don't know, buy both? Does GTA even have a release date?

I am more excited about The Last Of Us than Grand Theft Auto 5, but i pre-ordered both on my PlayStation 3.

The Last of Us is a tightly crafted, gritty, tense, survival action game with emotionally-driven narrative that rivals great cinema. It's about the impact of the shift from silence to violence and feeling how the characters do from moment to moment, such as the lasting repercussions of killing.

GTA V is the latest in a series renowned for pushing the open-world envelope with insane gameplay, funny characters and stories and lots and lots of replayability.

I can see the concern here, but I will be getting both and for very different reasons. There's still loads we don't know about each game so bring it on!
