Preview: The Last of Us Appears To Succeed Where BioShock Infinite Failed | MercuryNews

By Gieson Cacho

Although they may not appear similar on the surface, BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us have a common premise. They put players in the role of men hired to escort their female clients to some far-off destination. In the case of Booker DeWitt, BioShock Infinite’s protagonist has to ferry Elizabeth away from Columbia and bring her to New York. With Joel from The Last of Us, he’s hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie away from a militarized quarantine zone amid a world destroyed by a zombifying pandemic.

The developers’ goal for both titles is to get players to genuinely care for their charges, and although BioShock Infinite was a great game, it fell short of that target. You liked Elizabeth but it was hard to bond with her. (The game is much better at creating a provoctive world anyway.) On the other hand, I had the chance to preview two levels last night in The Last of Us, and even without context, Naughty Dog appears to be more successful at building ties among the two characters. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Watch out u might get a kick in the bubbles for saying something like that. Oh look u got kicked in the bubbles 6 times lol. This game goty or not, I dont care, I already know im going to love it. Cant wait to see the multiplayer.

U all know why they delayed the game right? E3 sony is going to announce a price drop for the vita and ps3 & im willing to bet the ps3 will be $199 and will be bundled with the last of us. Thats what I think will happen. Remember u heard it here first. If it does happen, look for this summer to be a huge boost in the gaming industry.

Totally agree. They are unstoppable.
I won't be playing it. I'll wait until Uncharted 4 or until they hopefully trash this mediocre franchise to make Jak 4. This is the first Naughty Dog game that hasn't interested me and with rumors of sequels it looks like I'll be avoiding their games until possibly the PS5.
