The Last of Us 2?

The Last of Us is a flawless and amazing PS3 exclusive that is a must buy. If there was a thing that people didn’t quite like, it would be the ending. Not because it’s bad or rushed but because it was very abrupt. I felt like I was cut off and stranded. I wanted to see how Joel and Ellie’s relationship grew after they returned to Tom’s dam. Many players were so upset they argued that it did not deserve a 10. I was one of them, at least for a second, until I thought about the future of this franchise. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

It doesn't have to be a sequel about Joel and Ellie. Naughty Dog have created this massive universe and I think there's still many stories left to tell.
brodychet  +   288d ago
They said they've told the story they needed to tell, and don't plan on making another game until they have another story to tell.

But what they're sure about is that Joel and Ellie are done.

And that hurts so badly. I'm so attached to them..

But ND can do it again with other characters.

Can we stop the fellating of this games dick already? Every other article on this website for the past month and a half has been related to this damn game. I'm sure there's more interesting things to talk about.

Calm down Dave.

Why don't you pop off and talk about how you shot some one in the head on COD, or the breast size of Lara Croft, and leave conversation such as what it means to be human or whether morality can live in a vacuum, without divine intervention, to those of us who just happened to have played the most important game ever created.

Self delusions much.

Once upon a time I was annoyed by people like you. Now I just sit back and laugh at you and your tenuous assumptions which qualify in your mind as an insult.

most important game ever created? what? don't get me wrong, the game is nice but how is it the most important game ever created?

Not much real news at the moment, and people want to talk about this game 'cause it has a way of invading your head.
Just wait till Gamescon, there's gonna be PLENTY of news around that time. This place will blow up.
I guarantee you're gonna be hearing more about this game around awards time though so you might wanna take a break from the site around then. lol

Obviously there's a reason for it.

When a game of this caliber comes out, the reception better be immaculate.

If not, then those reviewers and bloggers aren't doing their jobs.

This game should be known by everybody.
TopDudeMan  +   288d ago
Too soon to even start talking about it. If they do it they should wait and announce it in a couple of years.
Hazmat13  +   288d ago
if it does i hope it focus on the future obviously no matter how much i love Joel make Ellie a strong female character, thats deals with strange overgrown infected or the human element if need be have her discover the truth about her past or (SPOILER ALERT!) let her find out that Joel lied to her to keep her for herself. hell have the US government trying to take back america.

A man doesn't want a sequel. LoU is his favorite game of the year so far, but the story is complete. A story needs to conclude before it starts to unnaturally stretch itself. Just let it end strong and no ridiculous character returns or revivals or conflicts that need to be re-resolved.

I can see why some people wouldn't want a sequel, and I can see why one would be great if done properly. But a game with a brilliant story such as this left us wanting to carry on playing to find out what happens next. Maybe DLC will give us what we want, but I wouldn't say no to a sequel, only if it done correct however ;)

Nah man.

Utterly Amazing?

Yeah, I can believe that.
brodychet  +   288d ago
Flawless fits this game better.
theFLeXy  +   288d ago
I hope not a direct sequel at least, the game was an absolutely amazing complete experience.

I'm fine with a sequel as long as Joel and Ellie's journey is complete, but I personally want a prequel during the outbreak and watch society crumble
Pancit_Canton  +   288d ago
TLOU doesn't need a sequel, but it needs a spiritual successor. Epic storyline, gameplay and top notch graphics. I'm sure I don't need to tell that to Naughty Dog.
SageHonor  +   288d ago
Flawless? Nah not really

Anyways, while i definitely love the game and it is one of my faves this gen... this is just another uninspiring article regurgitating what's been said already by dozens of writers. Nothing special
JumpToGamer  +   288d ago
I guess that is the beauty of a site such as N4G that it is actually the community which decides what uninspiring articles get approved or not, and while some may disagree, a vast majority of the community still seem to be enjoying the talk and hype surrounding The Last Of Us, otherwise these kind of pieces wouldn't get approved?

It's a simple process, we write what we are feeling and what people are interested in reading(this wasn't just written recently to gain views), submit it here and see if it gets approved or not :)

To the comment below: We loved TLOU it's an amazing game. We felt what we expressed in this article about a TLOU 2. People are interested in TLOU, so we submit it to N4G, as do many other sites. We are interested in and write our own opinions, and people are clearly interested in it. We write what we want to write about, and if it is in the moment than that is great. What's the point in writing this article a few months down the line when the hype is gone?

Our readers come to our site to read articles they are interested in, they are our audience. So wouldn't it be stupid to not give them what they want, while at the same time not straying away from our personal and honest views?

Sounds like real integrity.
SageHonor  +   288d ago
I'm not sure what the purpose of you leaving that comment was. You didn't say anything I already wasn't aware of. It's like this with almost every game that gets received well critically. So it comes as no surprise that more articles like these are coming out since the last of us isn't even a month old.

I was just typing what I personally feel about seeing yet another one of these articles.

Jesus christ! Let it settle for 1/2 years! Naughty Dog should use the time making one new IP and Jak & Daxter 4. The world of The last of us deserves more stories, just not for the next 1/2 years!
Lbong  +   288d ago
The last of us definitely changed how games should be looked at as an artistic, dramatic medium, just like movies.
