Naughty Dog Explains Why Subhuman Characters Aren’t Called Zombies, Defend Cinematic Games

It’s hardly surprising that a lot of people wondered why the subhuman characters in the The Last of Us weren’t just called zombies. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

I can't for the life of me understand why Naughty Dog need to go into detail about subhuman characters?

These filthy creatures are the ones who support Microshaft and the $h!tb0x.

Naughty dog need to explain nothing they make only superb games the last of us is a great achievement in gaming the story, the gameplay, the visuals, it is so good.

Don't change naughty dog!

Wow your comment is just wow . How can some one type such a rash , mean , and just plain weird thing like that .
DerekFlint007  +   757d ago
Crimson let me explain. Firstly my sincere apologies for posting utter drivel. It was supposed to be a joke about linking sub human characters being the people who would buy an Xbox One. It was a stupid thing to post and didn't come out as intended.

It had nothing whatsoever to do with naughty Dog, who i consider stellar developers, and among the very elite in the business. My platinums on the Unchartered series and soon to be platinumed 'Last of us' (just completed survivor +) are testament to this.

I guess the moral of the story is don't post anything when you are steaming drunk. I had been celebrating the British & Irish Lions win over Australia, and then ended up at a function with free drink all day.

You're the reason we can't have nice things.

Lol ok it just came off in really bad taste . Thanks for explanation.

Why the need to insert 'defend' into that title?
FantasyStar  +   757d ago
You'd be surprised how many people confuse Naughty Dog games for movies. That PS commercial for Uncharted 2 is very spot on.

Damn right and besides, the last truly felt like a movie and that made me enjoy it better than other games that feel like...uh.. well "games"

You know, there's just too many young kids messing up the industry. Truthfully. Them little snots fuss and complain about the trivial. WHO CARES?? It's a shame Naughty Dog gotta explain something that should either be understood by playing the game or should have been taught in science class.

I'm afraid for the future.

You know once upon a time you were young too. Everything you said about this generation, and this will say about the next, was said by the previous. Yet I bet you hail "your generation" as the "best".

smh I fear growing old enough to forget I was ever young.
aLucidMind  +   757d ago
He does have a point though, when you get past his insinuation of "my generation is smarter than the up-and-coming one". It is pretty obvious that the enemies in the game are not zombies, not in the traditional sense anyway, and anyone with any critical thinking skills would see that.

The only possible way they can exist in real life is if something caused the victim to become completely feral while also causing a high resistance to, maybe even nullifying the ability to feel (look up CIPA or HSAN Type 4), pain. Or if somebody goes all Mass Effect Reaper in a cemetary and creates husks.

I doubt he was referring to kids, just people who are more than old enough to be capable of figuring things like this out and see the obvious differences. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that if you're not into or are bored of zombies, you're probably going to be a bit put off by all the similarities between zombies and the infected.

@Tony-Red-Grave

I would be a fool to imply that we were the best. And a fool I am not. My generation had their problems too. Yet, we didn't get into a heavy discussion about menial things in gaming. The game was either fun or not. That's it. Nowadays, you have all sorts of things to fuss about. Sexism, feminism, homosexuality and its acceptance in games and so forth. So much to fuss about.

LOL if that last comment is a slight I can't tell. I'm still enjoying a childhood passion of mines; gaming. But that's the beauty of growing up...you gain wisdom so that when somebody says something to you that would upset a child, it won't upset you.

With that much succes of course hate come along with it.

Last of us single handley destroys every Xbox exclusive in terms of media acclaim and most perfect scores and matter of fact I believe it has the most perfect scores in gaming history.

Child, bye! This Article has nothing to do with xbox...yet you come for it. Explain. What gives, sis? TLoU destroys every game this generation...PERIOD! (Except UMvC3)
CrimsonStar  +   757d ago
why did you bring up the Xbox? Man this site is going down the drain fast .

Fanboys < Gamers
rpd123  +   757d ago
It's been in the drain for a while.
CrossingEden  +   757d ago
saying that your enemy type isn't zombies is pretty pretentious naughty dog -_-
llMurcielagoll  +   757d ago
To be honest, whether if they call them zombies or not, man that walks funny, lost control over his mind and eats human flesh to spread the disease is and always will be a zombie.

The description above does not refer to a cannibal with a drinking problem.

Zombies are traditionally people that rise from the dead, not diseased by fungus.
