now they have another HUGE IP ready for next gen!
and some people were complaining about the too late release? This game can top Uncharted 3 without a doubt!

Greatness awaits

Been playing it and can't put it down and I am not going to lie I did shed a tear at one point won't say where but wow.

In your face Speilberg games are just as if not more emotive than film.

Also that is a huge achievement considering The Last of Us is an exclusive.

Bah spielberg ... the man can be a genious , but also immediately after a turd pushing machine . His latest tv forray , the immediately dead terranova was cringe worthy even for disney fans .

Turok from eons ago was even better plot wise

I remember his first quote: I think the real indicator that games have become a storytelling art form, will be when somebody confesses that they cried at level 17.

From then on I knew the guy wasn't a video game fan and still shows today that he isn't!
JoGam  +   587d ago
I got a couple of hardcore friends and im not taking about gamers. However when these guys seen the first 10mins of the game, they went out and bought it. One bought a PS3 just to play.

I cried. At the beginning of a game I actually cried. That has never happened before.

Here are my thoughts. The story, pacing, visuals, atmosphere, acting, combat, stealth, animations, level design and sound design are all exceptional. Divine actually.

Honestly, i've never known a game to have such great pacing. Actually, there was one. It was called Half Life 2. That is the level The Last of Us is working on.
ginsunuva  +   587d ago
Same; 2 people bought it the morning after they saw me play the first 1.5 hours.

Im so happy for Naughty Dog & glad to see it having a great success. If you go to the comment section of the article, I love reading ppls thoughts of the game. There was atleast 10 ppl who said they were in tears with the game & I totally understand what they are talking about. The story was so amazing that reading others have that same feeling, it makes it feel like all of us have a connection & its freakin awesome because thats just how awesome of a developer Naughty Dog is and I tip my hat to them for giving me the most amazing game that ive ever played in my life. In Naughty Dog we trust.

Game is amazing! Playing through it again now. Though I won't be attempting a survivor play through... dont have the balls for that lol!
Drakesfortune  +   587d ago
i struggled so much on hard....literally fucked myself over at times with 1 bullet and a slither of help...how the fuck can i platinum this game when i need to do survivor

best game i played...along with uncharted...funny enough they also made crash bandicoot which is another personal favourtie of mine

Naughty Dogs -- have a bone!!
AusRogo  +   586d ago
Haha I struggled on normal :( Naughty Dog have made made yet another game that makes them my favorite developer! First Crash Bandicoot, then Jak and Daxter, I absolutely am a huuuge fan of Uncharted and now The Last Of Us? Cant even imagine what they'll make me fall in love with next! <3 ND
fardan85  +   587d ago
To people who got the game already, you're so lucky :(
I can't find a god damn copy near my area.
nick309  +   587d ago
Buy it from psn or import, if you need psn cards check some websites for em , dont miss this game!
fardan85  +   587d ago
Thanks to ps+, I got lots of things to download. Importing takes very long time in my country.
I spoke with few shops, one promised me that I will get it maximum by tomorrow, I hope it's true.
So far I'm only getting amazing feedback from my friends, which makes me want it more.
CaEsAr-  +   587d ago
Just finished the game and I can tell you that it's a damn masterpiece. The story is incredible and deep.
fardan85  +   587d ago
I wish the game to be successful, high sales enough to force Naughty Dogs to make a sequel.
In era filled with lots of generics & no unique games, it makes me happy to get games like The Last Of Us.
Zefros  +   587d ago
hope they go 6+ million in sales.
Finally, I've got this and MGS4 to buy now when I get my first PS3 next year on the cheap.
Knushwood Butt  +   587d ago

MasterCornholio  +   587d ago
I will get the Last of Us but first I have to beat Uncharted 3 which I got from plus. I don't know why so many people hate the game because in my opinion its excellent.

Motorola RAZR i
Why o why  +   587d ago
Not really hate. I think people just preferred U2 for both the single plater campaign and its multiplayer
Drakesfortune  +   587d ago
people love uncharted 2 because i think that well for me was the frst game that signalfied next gen...graphics blew people away, story and set pieces where flawless...

and then uncharted came out and was more of the same...and well people where expecting more which i dont see how when a game is awesome..

i love uncharted 3
Knushwood Butt  +   587d ago

Tyre  +   587d ago
I'm half way through and it deserves every praise it gets. As a gamer you should've at least played this game. Naughty Dog on top of their game! This is not just a game, it is an experience! My muscles ache from the tension and immersion...shed a couple of tears, no movie can ever hope to match this, this IS the new medium, WOW Naughty Dog, just WOW my deepest respects!

my launch 80gb fat keeps shutting itself off. apparently the last of us is so awesome my Ps3 can't even handle it.

oh well, it had to go eventually, it's been a good run. gonna get the last of us bundle and sell the game and controller to a mate so it won't cost to much to replace it.

despair  +   587d ago
Still waiting for my copy, damn international shipping time.
M83_  +   587d ago
I'd feckin believe it considering it was sold out on launch day last Friday in gamestop on me. Have it on hold so I can pick it up tomorrow though, so not too bad.

Looking forward to it and for it to tide me over until PS4!
