The team consisted of Neil Druckmann, Bruce Straley, Ashley Johnson (The voice of Ellie), Dr David Hughes and Dr Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic. We were treated to an informative presentation from the team, and by the end of it I felt as though I understood the direction of the game significantly more than I did walking into it. After the presentation we got some hands on time with the game and I was certainly impressed with how the game played. It did however, take me a few tries to adjust to the tactical based gameplay, and I believe this is due to the sub-conscious notion that this game is like Uncharted.
One is a survival game, the other is an action game. An obvious distinction right? Well even though you may tell yourself that you are indeed aware The Last of Us and Uncharted are two different games, I fear many will hold certain expectations on The Last of Us game based on the success of Uncharted. It's one thing to openly say you can tell the difference, but once you pick up that controller and step into the shoes of Joel, how will your sub-conscious self react?
Here are five reasons you shouldn't expect Uncharted when you pick up The Last of US.
