A brand new gameplay video of The Last of Us shows pure horror.
I think its time for me to get a PS3 again
Ladies & Gentleman we have our GOTY.
To hell with that, Im calling it now, Game of the Generation
i want this game than any thing else this gen i don't care if it got GOTY awards i don't care if it got the Game of the Generation all i care about is getting my hand on this game and play it untill my hand bleed just stick it into my veins and what makes this game is even harder the freaks if they got you ..one bite and you are dead..ONE DAMN BITE i also love the way the blood splatter when he was bitten...feel very real
Well I for one am glad that i've left xbox live for good, got god of war ascension pre-ordered so i'll be enjoying the last of us demo :) And I look forward to the PS4 reveal and picking one up in 2014 when its released in the UK. PS4 is the only console im getting next gen. Although PC is still my main for multiplats.
Looks brilliant, its a shame this is the only game im buying for the ps3 though. For me GOTY will be either this or GTA V. @Spinalc0rd what has the 360 got to do with this?
Incredible. It just looks so FUN. That's what matters!
but I love ND! I never got to finish Siren or Dead Space (the only 2 horror games I tried!) but Damn ND, it's like you guys are teasing me to get this no matter what!
Thanks for laughs kid. Lego City gets that.
The gal used a gun? Whew. My concerns about baby-sitting/escorting are gone. @Above Good one, Emerald-Kaos/Bungie/etc. Your comments are hilarious.....No wait, what I meant was childish, unfunny, and disruptive.
Nail in the coffin for Resident Evil.
@black911 & @bathyj That statement is premature. Especially when GTA V is coming out in the same year.
tied with ni no kuni x.x
@badz149 how can you hate survival horror games? -__-
Before this video, I thought the game was just Uncharted great, but now it's gone beyond that in my opinion.
This or BioShock Infinite. But that's just me though.
Wow, Naughty Dog. This was so unexpected. I knew it'd get scary but damn, not like that.
@ Zool 08 you don't already have one? shame on you lol jks it's definitely time to invest in a PS3, even if it's just for this game.
I previously had 2 Ps3's Fat & Slim unfortunately because of personal circumstances had to sell them :-(, so elts hope third time luck, this and Beyond Two Souls.
me want now aahhhhhhhhhhhh. that's so awesome chills chills,i haven't had a game give me the creeps like that's since the 1st couple of resident eveil games.
hmm a third person game where you shoot zombies in a shadowy subway station. With a flashlight. Gordon freeman looks up from his whiskey and gently shakes his head. Honestly what is the big deal about this game?
why every one is getting tons of disagrees when they say any thing positive about the last of us ?!
Because 2010(alan wake) was the last of 360. So day mad.. Also what ND will do next gen scares me.
Haha you call that tons of disagrees? Try going into a Halo topic or anything 360 related of interest. You'll not only see people ghost disagreeing but a couple of trolls pop out of the woodwork to have their uninformed opinions greet the comments section. On topic: This looks like it's in a league of its own. Looks like Sony left the best for last.
this isnt trolling. The comments on that are just desperate trolls. You have nothing to complain about http://n4g.com/news/1166604...
It's some kind of tradition here on N4G, you should be glad the "tons of disagrees" isn't that much on PS3 games, as it is on Nintendo/MS games. The hate on people suporting'em is astonishing, and worrying. I'm not being a fanboy, not supporting and attacking any company or game, it's a fact you can go and see by yourself. Go to a Nintendo new, see someone saying something like "I like the WiiU, having fun with it" and... see. Just see. On topic: I'm pretty bad for realist games, actually I have a PS3 for games like Disgaea and Nino No kuni... never tried Uncharted. Doesn 't appeal to me. But man, this game looks awesome.
You guys need to stop complaining about disagrees. NO ONE IS OBLIGATED TO AGREE WITH A OPINION. It is totally possible for someone to not share your exact thoughts on certain things.
@outsidethebox i understand, but when someone comments "i like xyz game, it's not completely dumb" the disagree's to it seem like their saying "IT'S STUPID AND YOU'RE STUPID"
damn, I'm speechless... It's better than I expected... Survival Horror + some rpg element, it' day one for me whoaa ND already secured my wallet
Yeah it looks great, can't wait for it. If you're after a survival horror with rpg elements to get you through until then though, and have a gaming pc, I recommend Staker - http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I'm watching this on my phone and I'm creeped out! That throaty scream noise.......I despised that in the Ring and now these guys make that noise! I'm going to move my PS3 into the toilet. Can't afford to clean that many pants.
lol GOTY and "game of the generation" off 2 minutes of 'visual' gameplay...these comments, what a lovely unbiased site. lls but whatever, looked great. Didn't know this was supposed to have some scary elements to it.
While the game does look great.... A handful of comments hardly speaks for the entire site.....I guess when a game looks good gamers should just say meh...
Is called "Opinion" everyone body has one, doesn't mean you have to agree or like it.
Well, the only people who wouldn't think this had at least a shot at goty would be a fanboy. It's not hard to see, even from a technical standpoint! that this is a marvel of a game, from very a very talented game developer. This game looks beyond amazing, even people that don't like the genre can agree that this game looks intriguing. Please give some credit to this game, that it so rightly deserves.
Well mr.blaze what if thats his goty? Is that ok or does he need to ask your permisiion? Dont even act like people...fans don't do simular things with other games.
Im just voicing MY opinion, not trying to shove it down anyones throat, or even change theirs.
It was mentioned when they first announced the game but this is the first time we've actually been shown what "the infected" look and act like.
I did lol about the GOTY comment. It looks brilliant, but I think Bioshock Infinite is likely to be the better of the two.
Post Pandemic Edition on sale at gamestop.com again.
Holy crap, the atmosphere in this game is chilling. I'm calling GOTY material right now.
Nintendo fanboys have to watch that video
They need to see how zombie u should have been done lol
okay no need to spoil myself ay more.. i just wanted to see the infected gameplay and i got it.. I'm ready for it! ps. i may give a look to the MP gameplay lol just because i'm curious.. but that's it!
Yep i would have sold my PS3 since i'm getting a PC but i would miss out on some good multiplatform games that are not available on PC and some great first party games for PS3.
I am soooo happy that I preordered the Survival Edition.
Think it's time I finally upgrade to a surround sound system for playing games.:) Thank god for a bigger than expected tax refund.
This game reminds me of Manhunt, im really buying a PS3 now.
yea me 2 a nextgen manhunt but with gameplay choice
Why'd you sell it? With Uncharted, Killzone, Gow, Lbp, Ni no Kuni and etc.
My god Naughty Dog! Are you freakin serious? That 2 mins of footage was scarier than the entire Dead Space 3 demo or the entire Resident Evil 6 game. Love the atmosphere & those sounds are chilling.
Naughty Gods have resurrected Survival Horror. Expect others to immitate this next gen.
Shhh, jblaze might hear you.
I think they'll struggle to match it graphically next generation ... you wait and see. If you want the next leap on PS hardware, you know where to look and it 'aint' third party games.
damn it. I hate survival horror... I HATE IT, I get scared within the first sound!!! everything dark!! nooo. I will play through this game. Its my duty
The last horror game I tried to play was Rule of Rose on PS2. Gave up less than an hour in. But DAMMIT! I'll be buying this game.
ha Rule of Rose was awesome.
yeah I got chills just by watching this clip, imagine full game...gulp.
blackmama got scared lmao
video games never scare me, but that. holy shit.
I didnt think it was scary at all tbh.. and the AI seemed meh at best hope that was like a demo on easy mode or something... Game looked graphically impressive though lighting effects and detail was on point.
Its not that the ai is bad, its just that those things cant see. I think they said that they can only see with sound. The sound creates images for them. Like a bat, for example.
I see so the AI only has one sense to react to? sound. They would have to have lots of environment interaction(table bumping, random can kicking) where you would have to be extremely careful to keep the suspense and difficulty of trying to avoid them and stay alive. Standing right in front of one and shooting its head off doesnt seem that exciting or scary or difficult. I know you die hard ps3 supporters will disagree w/ me seeing my above disagrees but just hoping Naughty pulled it off correctly. That vid didnt impress me but I could be wrong. Own all 3 UC and a NaughtyDog supporter just giving an unbiased opinion.
And believe me you are wrong.
Yeah, that was bad AI even for zombie-AI: Can't see you with direct flashlight in their faces (makes sense story-wise I guess), can't hear you when you shoot at them or throw things around, and even when they're "alert" and jump towards you it seems that they do nothing and just turn around to another distraction... It's as if walking crouched puts you in invisible mode. I hope they were just flashing out the engine and it's not how the zombie AI will be in this game. The previous gameplay segments shown with human opponents were better AI-wise.
You don't know how the AI played out based on one video. EVERY preview out there has not put the fungi AI is their concern most likely due to the fact they got HANDS-ON gameplay and tested out different scenarios. We know 2 things: 1) Clickers can't see. PERIOD. Your flashlight argument is void. 2) Being "alert" does not give enemies omnipresence. This is the problem with AI this generation. The enemies abilities are limited to either limited or NO sight. "It's as if walking crouched puts you in invisible mode." Yes, if you were dealing with an enemy that relies something other than "sight". Did you remember the very FIRST trailer when Joel cocked his gun? That was when the clickers started to attack? I don't see how your criticism is anyway valid, try reading all the previews and you'll realize the only concerns are either the "listen" mode or the unpolished graphics.
greg miller from ign said they told him they made it easyer and added extra ammo in that 20 min demo 2 show the full range of gameplay o and i dunno how but adam sessler said they still need 2 update the visuals 2 final form so adam sessler says the gonna look even better!!!!!!!!! wtf i say but look it up
@ DigitalAnalog But I CAN tell how the AI played out *in this specific video*. Unlike the clickers, we do have eyes and can see how they react to everything the player does. Did any of the hand-on reviews praise the fungi AI? Did they describe how intimidating they can be? I didn't see anything positive about them, which is a cause for concern IMO. Other than that, your excuses for the bad AI are really terrible: 1) I mentioned myself that this argument is invalid because of the design. The point is that when you limit this sense by design, you need to account for that by increasing other senses - and this does not seem to be the case here. Gears of War which is purely an action game managed to pull that one off with the blind Berserkers and you had to walk REAL slow if you didn't want to be detected. Why can't the enemies here properly react to sound? 2) It's not about omnipresence: it's about the ability to react to a single (or at most 2 considering the friendly AI) threats on the screen once being alert. Some games manage to have amazing enemy AI working in parallel to the player or a bunch of players. Halo's Flood version of the zombies is one such great example of how to accomplish this kind of horror feeling without giving the enemies omnipresence, and the AI in L4D (especially for the special infected) is another great example - while the director in L4D does have omnipresence, the single entities do not, and yet they manage to provide an amazing and horrifying challenge for the player. Anyone who encountered a witch in L4D knows how everyone switches immediately to "oh my god guys don't make a noise" mode, but here we don't see that the player even needs to account for the AI around him - he crouch-runs past them while throwing things and shooting and they just circle-round doing practically nothing. The only time I saw an enemy actually hitting the player was when one just jumped on him from behind although he wasn't there a second ago - as if enemies just magically spawn behind the players like they do in Resident Evil (and GTA, and COD). I hope this isn't the actual case here, because this isn't a very good AI implementation IMO. 3) I guess that this is the difference between trailers and gameplay: the gun scene in the trailer where they started attacking was done great, but that was a trailer. In the actual game we actually see the player RUNNING (yes, he's crouching, but his walking speed is actually pretty close to full fledged running) past enemies making all kinds of noises (not just heavy footsteps). I would expect them to jump on you when you make too much noise but here they just seem to move randomly. You have to understand that this is MY feedback (as well as thehitman's) based on what we actually see in the video and therefore we raise our concern. You're not a designer of the game so it's not even aimed at you. We simply want to see the best game we can get. Why the sudden need to dodge feedback not even targeted at you and make excuses for it?
