This interview has story spoilers. Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is burning up the charts and will likely be one of the most successful PlayStation 3 exclusive video games of all time.
I liked Ellie! One of my favorite female characters in forever. She's a little *too* vicious with the knife, though.
Yeah Ellie has become one my favourite video game characters of all time :)
Yup, last time I cared so much about a gaming female character, was with Claire Redfield, in Code Veronica - almost 13 years ago! Ellie is an incredible achievement. Nearly impossible not to care for her as soon as she shows up.
Considering the world she had to survive in, who could blame her for being so aggressive with the knife?
She grew up in a military quarantine on a horrible world and you blame her for being so aggresive with her knife? lol.
Ellie is one of my favorite characters of any medium. It would be nice if she's still around for a sequel. I'd like to see her a bit grown up and more hardened. Joel is also a great character. I thought he was the headliner for the game,but once Ellie came into the picture, she kind of stole the show. David was also a pleasant surprise. I had to edit out part of my opinion on David, because saying anything about him could mean a spoiler.
Ellie learned from the best, Joel.
They should be criticized for releasing a censored multiplayer throughout Europe instead of keeping that version to Germany only.
*look at your avatar*
Why am I getting disagrees? How would you guys like it if they made the US version censored because of Germany? It would be stupid, so why is it OK for the whole of EU to be? What's wrong with my avatar?
think people find it hard take your opinion serious when you have a avatar similar too Hitler
Well, that's just judging a book by its cover. The fact of the matter is, blanket censorship due to laziness shouldn't be accepted. I would have imported from the US if I had known. Now I have to buy and extra US copy AND another season pass, just to play the game as the developers intended.
You're talking about censorig, and you're avatar is hitler. Pretty ironic.
It is ironic.....Get it?
Ellie is the only relevant female character in video games.
[Druckmann: We have to dissect these subtleties, instead of just pointing to these tropes and saying, “Well, you have a woman dying, so you have a game where the death of a woman fuel’s this man’s story.” The discussion has to go deeper than that.] Completely agree, great article.
Ellie forever! Love you
City of Thieves, need to read that than. Thanks Bruce Straley.
People bitching about female characters having a good role is obviously stuck in the Middle Ages.
