Well I like the lie. It can start a new sequel and have an starting place. It's really good as it was.

Definitely don't want a sequel with the same characters. Their story has ended. A sequel to them would seem tacked on.

Would love a new sequel with new people though!

See, im not sure about that. I really really liked these characters so it would be weird for me to go back to this world...and not see Joel or Ellie..

Rusty5151992d ago

I honestly don't want a sequel if Joel and Ellie aren't in it. If they want the story to end here, fine. I'm happy with that. But if they make a TLOU2 with different characters it'll make the first game seem like it was for nothing. I think this IP should be remembered for these two characters and for these two characters only.

Easy way around that would be to have one of the docs or other characters that know about ellie to go looking for her to finish the job so to speak, that way new characters are introduced and you would still get to see joel and ellie, maybe the fungus gets more agresive or a father wants to cure his offspring? There could be plenty of ways around not using joel and ellie as the main characters, although i would rather play as them again myself, maybe a split campain?

I like the lie because it shows that Joel is not good or bad , he's human . I have never had so many mixed thoughts about any character in the history of video games and movies .The decision he made will always trouble me , And I love it .

TLOU may not have been the Best survival horror game I've ever played , but it had the best character development , story , and ending I've ever seen .

Read about this before. Glad they stuck with the ending we've got now.

HarryMasonHerpderp1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

The ending they went with was perfect in my opinion.

You've got to love the fact that Elle as a character had developed so much that the devs themselves, couldn't really bring her to *SPOILER WARNING* accept the lie that Joel tells.

I think this is a game that doesnt need to be dragged down by a sequel. It would take away from the epic ending of this game. I personally dont want to see another one. As awesome as this game is...

Rusty5151992d ago

Agreed. Let ND keep Uncharted, but make a new IP for the ps4. People need to let them experiment instead of asking for sequels all the time.

CrimsonStar1991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

I respectfully disagree . I don't want to see a direct sequel , but I definitely want them to do another TLOU. There are more people to explore other then Ellie and Joel . Maybe New survivors , or maybe Joel and Tommie's tale of survival , from what Tommie said Him and Joel went through a lot together .

CerebralAssassin1991d ago

Whether it be a sequel or prequel I still feel like it will take away from the experience of the original game. Everything isn't meant to keep going and going. The fans doesn't feel like a continuation is in place anyway. let the human race die with joels lie.
