Wait…Did Geoff Keighley unknowingly ruin the end of The Last of Us?

With The Last of Us shipping in less than a month gamers across the world are gearing up and getting excited to finally be able to have the game in their very own hands. But funny enough it’s what happened a month ago that has the potential to snatch that excitement right from under “Us” — a interview conducted by Gametrailers’ own Geoff Keighley which begs the question, did he just unknowingly ruin the end of the game? (Geoff Keighley, PS3, The Last Of Us)

I hope that really was a joke, but that awkward laughing...

I HATE SPOILERS!!! (now i can't stop think about it)
Me too.

Surely whoever wrote this article didn't expect anyone to actually read it with a title like that.

I think I'd best just leave without reading anymore comments.

well, i'm sorry I fell for the temptation. shame on me. SHAME!
bratman  +   874d ago
literally scrolling through this article, while squinting... its like a part of me wants it to be ruined and i dont know why :'(
crxss  +   874d ago
he wont turn. maybe in TLOU 3. or even worse at the end of TLOU 2 just like when Hale turned in Resistance 2 giving us an unwanted main new character for 3. wait a sec, infamous is doing that as well... What is this crappy trend???

I looked at the video, it doesn't sound like he's doing anything but joking.

You are probably right. If it wasn't a joke then GT would just edit or re shoot the interview and not post it. Silly article.
cedaridge  +   874d ago
look at the 2 developers body reaction, clearly they were like "o shit don't say that!"

I already told you guys like since TLOU was annnounced that the ending, the guy turns out to be crazy and the girl doesn't exist. Kinda like Resnov in black ops. I told you all,using my other account , the one with the quake 4 icon. I told you guys I told you I told you.
jeeves86  +   873d ago
I disagree with that idea.
Heavenly King  +   874d ago
He just said that in order to get information from ND and to troll them a bit.

Yeah somebody was posting the ending on n4g comments the other day. On non related articles too. Not sure if its true as im not following the game personally but if you are and you read it then that sucks. I had the same thing happen to me for Heavy Rain on here.
Silly gameAr  +   874d ago
Hey! Lets write an article and bring more attention to this shall we? You know, just in case he did and all. ;) Time for a media blackout on TLOU.
ltachiUchiha  +   874d ago
Im glad I didnt go there, he is known for trying to give out a little too much info but i doubt he did or he would certainly be losing his job or taken to court for breaking the embargo.
wishingW3L  +   874d ago
the ending was already spoiled by trailers anyway.
TripC50  +   874d ago
I would like to know the ending.
Ashunderfire86  +   874d ago
Read my comment at the bottom lol!!! I decipher the trailer pretty well, which could be the ending. Heck I wouldn't be surprise if we play as Ellie in the end.

Actually they ruin it for us before Geoff Keighley mention it. They showed us a trailer where Joel look like he was turning into the infected while Ellie was aiming a gun at someone. Guess who? Joel!!! Even towards the end of the trailer Ellie was by herself in a snowy forest with a rifle on her back.

Update lol!!! I find the trailer. Watch at 1:21 and 1:31 to see what I am talking about. Heck I known about this before Geoff Keighley spill the beans.


What were they thinking showing all that in the trailer?
JackVagina  +   874d ago
That's what they want you to think!
plaZeHD  +   874d ago
At 1:32, Look at Joel, he has his winter gear, and look back at Ellie [at 1:33], she has her normal gear. And Joel isn't turning to a monster, his beard is just covered with snow, but I am pretty sure he got shot, or stabbed in the abdomen.
But what Ellie says at the end kind of connects with your theory. So I don't know, we should just play the game and find out.
crxss  +   874d ago
come back to this comment when you finish the game. I can tell you right now you're not right
Ashunderfire86  +   873d ago
If I am right you all that disagree with me will eat your words, or such I say eat your comments.
Jovanian  +   874d ago
its not that hard to predict the ending

joel dies sacrificing himself so ellie can escape. If they are wise, though, they will make both joel and ellie survive until the end of the third game in the trilogy so that when they finally do kill joel it will achieve maximum sadness

Hilarious if he did.
Godmars290  +   874d ago
No. Considering all the coverage they've been giving the Xbox, more so because of the app, its sad.

They even had a "what we want from Forza" story up the day GT was announced.
BALLARD32  +   874d ago
That definitely seemed like an oh shit moment.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   874d ago
I bet someone paid him to be such a douche. Anyways you can't ruin what is meant to be great.

Someone needs to bitch slap this fool.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   874d ago
Shouldn't the article contain 'spolier' in it? It contains exactly what he said. Thank god I don't really care else this would piss me off.
Kal-El-001  +   874d ago

Play the Walking Dead episode 1-5 if you don't cry at the end of that idk what will make you cry lol
MasterCornholio  +   874d ago
Joel turns into a banana and Ellie eats him whole.

I just spoiled the ending

Ha ha ha ha ha

But seriously for those who do love spoiling the ending for others

Only you can prevent spoilers.
PSVita_FTW  +   874d ago
the trailers for the game kind of show the ending, which unfortunately is the bleeding obvious (i won't tell you what that 'bleeding obvious' is incase some of you may get pissed off but it is related to the endings of a couple of films that i've watched whose names i will not mention)
It's not a game that will make you cry or anything so who cares? I just hate that you have to walk around with an annoying AI partner the whole game (or most of the game anyway). It doesn't help that none of the characters are likeable either.

Look at the characters in Uncharted and you can see they all had personality and that's just gone in this game. Sure, it makes you see them as average people which is probably what they wanted but I couldn't care less if they both died or not. I wouldn't mind new protagonists for a second game with a new virus or something as long as they make the characters worth caring about next time.

Why don't you give the game a chance first.
maliciousNPC  +   874d ago
Ha ha.. Did you see the look on their faces, thats precious
Heavenly King  +   874d ago
This stuff is not Live, so if ND thought that Keighley spoiled something, they would have asked him for not to include that part in the video. It is as simple as that people.
Conan-O-Brady  +   874d ago
Stopped reading at Geoff Keighley. I really wish the douche would just find another profession. He represents so much that is wrong the gaming industry.
KingKevo  +   874d ago

Now that I've read the article even though I was trying to not get spoiled and know anything about the game's story, I honestly see that this could very well be true and I was thinking about that myself already. It makes sense, because Joel is only there to bring Ellie to another place. That makes him pretty dispensable for the actual mission itself. And if he would train Ellie in combat, shooting, crafting, basically surviving and then turn at a point where she can take cae of herself, that would be cool.

And I'm also thinking about aomething else from another Interview (I think) where they say that you'll cry at least three times and one time is during gameplay. So I was like, damn, it would make perfect sense if you (playing as Ellie right after Joel became infected) had to shot infected Joel in order to continue the journey. That would just be.. crazy and emotional.

Let's see if that will really happen.
breakpad  +   874d ago
He did it on purpose for sure .he wanted to ruin it and it seems from his hypocritical reaction... he represents gametrailers which is very biased toward Microsoft's consoles
Haules  +   874d ago
I haven't read the article, but if it's what I think it is, then there's already a tiny clip of that in the VGAs/Story trailer, so it's not really a spoiler.
Crazay  +   873d ago
For starters Geoff is a professional so I highly doubt he would have made such a monumental mistake. Secondly, the easily could have reshot and or edited it out if he did have a monumental brain fart like that.
leogets  +   873d ago
he obviously said that for a giggle. even if he guessed right know one knows just yet. relax guys.

WOW they're like ehh...
