The art direction of The Last Of Us is arguably its greatest triumph: the broken down buildings, nature encroaching, reclaiming its territory.
I feel like I've seen a few of those pictures somewhere. I think it was when the game was initially revealed. And if I'm right, then these pictures were indeed some inspiration for TLOU.
According to these picture's full collection names, it appears they were just photos of random "haunted" or "decayed" areas around the world. They definitely look like they could have at least inspired TLOU though. Some of these pictures look straight out of the game.
Are these photos from after Hurricane Katrina? I feel like I've seen these in jumbo size photos at a MOMA exhibit.
Ah, I further explored the link and they're unrelated. The Katrina devastation photos were incredible.
Simply amazing that Naughty Dog could craft such a beautiful world. This just proves how ahead of the curve the PS3 is.
basically what the last of us would look like on a nice pc
You have a decent enough PC able to run most games at even 720p 60+ fps, you should be able to afford a PS3 now.
played it on ps3, enjoyed it, great story graphics looked 8 years old though, like all console games, jaggies everywhere, sub-hd textures everywhere, all models horribly low res, this is just the reality of an 8 year old machine, its stuck with 2006 graphics would have been so much better on pc in native 1920x1080p at 60 frames with 8x msaa
I agree that the game in some places had really really low-red textures, jaggies, etc., but that shouldn't be the only thing you should be looking for in a game. Here are a few examples: •trees popping in when you go horse riding •your shadows have bad jaggies •the building from the demo (it's also preset in the full game), after you fight the second Clicker, and go through the scaffolding, look behind you, and the sky has upside-down shadows of the buildings, etc. However, they didn't stop me from enjoying the game. I don't go and say, "oh bloody heck! This game has jaggies? Eff this, I'm gonna return this game, and enjoy my high and mighty Gabe Newell PC instead!" The game, despite having rough areas, also has really good looking areas too. PC gamers port beg so much, might as well stop making handheld, console, arcade, and mobile games to please them.
Name a game released in 2006 that has these graphics. Go on. Anyway the game looks good just rough and jagged ( BADUM TSSSSSS) arounf the edges.
I agree that's why we need ps4. But you are overreacting :) . TLOU looks too good to be in ps3. That's why it's a masterpiece :P
Real life looks like the last of us.
Lol, that's great. They should seriously have marketed it that way.
OMG that is amazing ! it does look reall !
yeah The Last Of Us is stunning!!!!!!!!!!!! best game ive played in years!
Pripyat city, i want to go there so bad!
Looks like the east side of Detroit to me...and I never want to go back.
The first and last one look real, the others look like really good paintings (as in from a distance you'd think you were looking through a window). I could see one of these pictures framed and sold as an original painting
PS4 graphics down the road, anyone?
