"This isn’t another zombie game and we didn’t want to give that impression. Your main antagonist in the game is surviving," explained Eric Monacelli, Naughty Dog's community strategist
I want it now!
So do I. I haven't been this impressed with a game in a very long time.
This game will set the bar for survival/action/horror. I just have this feeling that this game will be amazing.
I just have this feeling that you may be right.
This game is getting hyped to the max! seriously in all my 20+ years of gaming I can't think of many games that have even come close to receiving such hype. Now I hate being "that guy" but all we've really seen so far is what the Dev's and pubs want us to see (the people who are trying to sell us the game) now I'm not going to tell you that The Last of Us doesn't look and sound awesome, but can we really call it so soon? just based of of gameplay trailers and the like? last time we did that we got Aliens: Colonial Marines... So yeah, I've no problem with people being optimistic, but it doesn't hurt to be cautious especially when things seem to good to be true.
The difference though is that Naughty Dog is developing this game. Just looking at their history, guarantees that The Last of Us will be awesome. Plus, ND is an honest developer unlike Gearbox. When they say their game is awesome, trust me, it's awesome. While there is always chances of a game being "overhyped" I doubt that The Last of Us will be one of those games mostly due to Naughty Dog's portfolio of great games.
That is true, I really can't argue with your reasoning but I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic and not buy too much into the hype. Even so I hope The Last of Us lives up to your expectations.
AFAIK, The Last of Us is being made by the same team that made Uncharted 2. Also, one has only to look at the previous three installments from Naughty Dog. So, go on being cautiously optimistic, but ND deserves better. Seriously, the odds of their releasing something that is less than they promise are infinitely small. FTR, UC3 was not overhyped and they did not deliver *less* than they promised. It just so happened that UC2 was better.
2 words Naughty....Dog
Actually everyone whos isnt Naughty Dog and has seen, heard or even smelt this game, has verified the quality and justified the optimism. In fact, I cant think of anyone (who wasnt a ranting fanboy who hasnt touched the game) say anything bad about it yet. You're wise not to get too excited, the more manageable your expectations the more pleased you'll actually be when you play it, but I have no doubt this game will be something special. Definite GotY contender.
I really can't wait to get my hands on this game. I have never been more excited for a game in my life. I just love how ND puts so much effort into their games, it really shows. This game will set the bar for storytelling and characters.
I get what you're saying for sure. I have a feeling some people have set their expectations so high they they'll probably end up getting disappointed with the game.
This game seems to be getting a little overrated from some press with all the claims it is trying to do or have. I really hope the actual game justifies the hype.
This is naughty dog were talking about. Let me describe them for you. You know how everyone praises kojima & miyamoto as individuals? Think of naughty dog as being praised the same way but as a studio. They are that great of a studio full of talented ppl. This game will not only live up to the hype, I believe it will surpass it & set a new standard for this genre. Shinra Tensei
Except that ND has given HANDS-ON previews to said press which then further verified claims. Your statement makes no sense. It wasn't a pre-rendered CG or teaser we're talking about here.
When is the demo for the ones that bought God of War Ascension?
I think its may but not sure.
back when this game was delayed I was like "good, more time to polish the game"... Now that it would have originally been 2 weeks away I'm all like "fml"
All the feels... Anyways, definitely getting this game :)
Preordered the last survival edition at my local GameStop ;)
I taped a Last of Us screenshot to the back of my wife's head last night. THAT'S how much I want this game.
lmao. That's the best comment ever.
it's only a game ppl
