Troy Baker on TLOU Scene: "The Second Most Difficult Day of my Life", Druckmann "Best Director Ever"

**SPOILER WARNING** for opening to the game. "It was an interesting time over on a particular thread started on GameFaqs this past weekend, which stemmed from an article we published last week (major spoilers at the link if you haven’t beaten the game), with the thread title being “Troy Baker may not want to come back to [The] Last of Us.”" - PSLS (PS3, The Last Of Us)

lolol all because of GameFAQs and its smartasses
P_Bomb  +   885d ago
No doubt. Gamefaqs' TLOU board has unfortunately been inundated with pretentious contrarians looking for any and every reason to stir the pot.

It's good he responded, but sad at the same time he had to get dragged into flamebait. But in the end, we can put it to rest with a nice "I would work for that man, for Bruce Straley and the entire Naughty Dog team any day of the week and twice on Sunday."

They all turn into geese made of cheese at the end.
TrendyGamers  +   885d ago
GAH! You just ruined everything!

What kind of cheese?
kneon  +   885d ago
Various kinds of mouldy cheese of course ;)

David: We're from a larger group - geese, ducks - we're all very very hungry.
Ellie: So am I - geese and ducks - all very hungry too.
moparful99  +   883d ago
My favorite is when Ellie smears the fromunda cheese in Joel's face

IF he is talking about THAT scene, i agree with Troy. He nailed that moment (as well as the other actors involved) that really set the mood & tone for the game.

All great directors want more out of their actors & if Neil felt that Troy could deliver more that is his job. Sure actors can get upset but at the end of the day it will be all worth it.

TLOU is a pinnacle in game design, game direction, & game acting.
GribbleGrunger  +   885d ago
But the ironic thing is, Neil wanted less. That's how you do it folks. None of this Walt-Dineyesque OTT nonsense.
GenericNameHere  +   885d ago
Yeah, it was the beautiful intro that he's talking about. If you watch Grounded - The Making of The Last of Us, you can see his first take was WAY over the top. He told Neil to remind him when the day that "shoot" comes, and wow haha. He did 5-6 reshoots, but none were good, so he got called in another time, and was pissed he had to do it again. 8-9 shoot was when he finally calmed down, and had the perfect shoot. His face in the video definitely looked like he was pissed off at Neil. I wouldn't blame him though. Him and Sarah's actress had to legitimately cry. I don't think I'd be able to do that after the third shoot.

Yea one of the few games that made me cry. Very beautiful game .

Neil Druckman is really making a name for himself. I cannot wait to see what else he and Naughty Dog has in store for us. And the fact that Troy Baker and Nolan North have such a great relationship and respect for ND only gives me reason to be more confident and excited for future games.
moparful99  +   883d ago
I honestly think that Naughty Dog should create a movie studio with Druckman at the helm, the amazing actors in Troy as well as Nolan and the others, Amy Henning and her top notch writers, and of course Sony's deep involvement in the films industry it just seems like it was meant to be.. They have a wealth of content that could easily translate to the big screen with Uncharted and now the Last of Us..

Without spoiling anything, the scene made me cry and is up there as one of the greatest videogame moments of all time.
RandomDude655  +   885d ago
Is it the "transition from past to future" scene?

"Clearly, he misinterpreted everything, and it even prompted Troy Baker himself (who confirmed it was him via his Twitter account) to post this large reply in the thread (it was edited out by the mods, but captured by other posters)"

Really? He goes on there and tries to set the record straight and the mods edit out his post? Didn't even bother to try confirming over Twitter/email if it was real or not, first? That's pretty unprofessional.

Im stuck in Pittsburgh Hotel, too scared to play :(
CrimsonStar  +   885d ago
lol man everyone talks about the hotel basement being a really scary part of the game. Didn't scare me at all , was I missing something yall didn't???
WitWolfy  +   885d ago
Speak for ya self I Peed myself with that scene.. Didnt know what to do until I watched the youtube walk through on how to get passed it.
Jaces  +   884d ago
Once I explored the whole area and knew what had to be done, I turned on the generator then ran for my fracking life. Lol! Not the scariest part but a heart pumping one for sure.
rezzah  +   884d ago
wasn't scary, it's just the tension was really high.
moparful99  +   883d ago
That section was the single scariest thing I have played since the original fear. I kid you not I didn't want to turn that freaking generator on because I had this awful feeling that I wasn't going to like the outcome... Sure enough it was something else.. I to chose the run for the love of everything holy and righteous approach.. Doesn't help when you back yourself into a stinking corner with a bloater coming at you..
ShabbaRanks  +   885d ago
Ah shit I didn’t even remember that part lol. I’m on my survivor playthrew and its pretty hard. Not very anxious about getting back to that section -_-

Best PS3 hands down imo, yes it has flaws but dam what it does well IT FU**ING DOES WELL. I really hope ND makes a sequel on PS4, imagine THA GRAPHICS
ChozenWoan  +   884d ago
Nope, can't even imagine... don't want to either. Boy do I hate that basement, and I'm so glad that's over with.
madara0sama  +   884d ago
Ahahaa that part took me one shot. I luckily sneaked into the generator room with no infected in sight then turned it on then somehow stumbled onto the key then somehow ran right to the exit while alerting tons of infected. When I saw that fat guy I was like "nope not fighting that thing again, screw exploring this spot" since it was a waste of ammo and time.

I threw down a bunch of the proximity bombs and that made a world of difference.. Especially with the bloater ohh and Molotov's have a stun effect on them because they stop focusing on you and kind of run around all helter skelter so you can lay into them with your firearms.. Only way I've found to deal with them effectively..
JackVagina  +   885d ago
bookmarked for later!
Welcome2Die  +   885d ago
Last year I saw him at a convention. He came with Akira, the guy that made the music for Silent Hill and Troy played the bass, if I only knew the roles he would have been in lol....
BattleTorn  +   884d ago
I wasn't sure who Troy Baker was at first, so I googled him...

God does he look like Bradly Cooper in his IMDB photo!!

True, he looks handsome tbh. In the TLoU making of someone (I think Ashley who plays Ellie) said that she thought he'S from Final Fantasy and didn't think he was going to fit in the role of Joel (Ashley was cast first and did the auditions with the Joel actors). I thought that was funny.

And wow, I did not know that he replaces Mark Hamill as the Joker in the new Bats game. Definitely interesting, cause that guy is really talented.
