Naughty Dog: "You'll Be in Awe When You Play Our PS4 Game"

We know that it’s only a matter of time before Naughty Dog reveals its first PlayStation 4 title, but the studio hasn’t been able to resist teasing it during a Reddit question and answer session. (PS4)

Awe isn't the word for it. I predict MASS HYSTERIA on N4G and every other gaming outlet when they reveal their next game. Jaws will drop, eyes will bulge, hair will stand on end, pants will be creamed and soiled.

I was in awe playing The Last Of Us, so my mind can't comprehend what their PS4 title will look and feel like. This will most likely happen..... http://img.pandawhale.com/2...

What are you talking about?! Are you stalking me? I played TLOU once the same with Heavy Rain, both are still some of my favourite games of all time...just from one play through. You think im fake because i only have 5 trophies on TLOU? Games that affect me like TLOU did i always play once as to not alter the memory of the 1st playthrough. I have over 103k gamerscore on the 360....i stopped playing for achievements/trophies A LONG time ago, maybe you should do the same.

Grow up, you are a man in your mid forties, seriously.

I was in awe when I played Uncharted 2 and again when I TLOU. So I wouldn't call it arrogance but confidence.

The announcement of NDs next generation offering is far and away my most anticipated title to see. Judging from most of the comments I've seen here, I'm not alone.

Remember the backlash that happened when they claimed they want to revolutionise "storytelling" in videogames?
Imalwaysright  +   269d ago
Well... they didn't. There are games with better stories and many of them were released years before the PS3 was even revealed.
GribbleGrunger  +   269d ago
It's pointless debating this with you. Clearly you would never understand why TLOU is so remarkable.
kneon  +   269d ago | Well said
People don't seem to understand the difference between the story and storytelling.

A great storyteller can make even a mediocre story interesting, but a poor storyteller can make even a great story boring.
GribbleGrunger  +   269d ago
People also don't understand that a story doesn't just relate to the plot and that conflict and conclusions can be more than just kill or be killed. The subtext in TLOU was extraordinary. The fact that Bill was a homosexual but some people still don't realise it is a perfect example of how characters should be dealt with. The fact that Joel's daughter was always there by his side throughout the game is lost to many people. The fact that it's a story of redemption is completely overlooked too.
Irishguy95  +   269d ago
The haven't revolutionize anything. ND are great at the execution of a story(story telling). They play it safe with their actual story though.

Revolutionize is a big word. Very rarely does a dev manage to do it. ND certainly didn't. They just improved upon anything that came before them.

I do agree with some of the above comments though. ND don't need to say **** about their games. You don't need reviews etc. If it's made by ND it'll be top quality, no questions asked.

Before you see anything to do with ND's new game. You are guaranteed to play it and very likely think highly of it. That is so long as you have a Ps4.

GribbleGrunger  +   269d ago
Oh dear, Irish, you haven't got a clue. Tell me, did Joel lie to Ellie for his own interests or did he lie to save her from herself or had she realised that it was now Joel that needed looking after? Did Ellie know he was lying but accepted it because she loved Joel as a Father? A good story doesn't end at the last full stop and ND celebrated that.

For me to fully explain what I and many others mean, you would have to let me go through the game with you one frame at a time. It really is something very special. Some people can't understand why some films get Oscars and some don't ... That's about the only way of making it clear what's going on here.

LoveOfTheGame  +   269d ago
Your usually very smart about these types of topics, but ND didn't revolutionize anything. They did a good job of story telling with great characters and a mediocre story.

And if people couldn't tell Bill was gay from the minute he said "partner", hell eventually Ellie had a nude male mag from Bill's house, then they don't have the understanding to even know when someone is great at storytelling.

Also, the ending is not complicated. Both Joel and Ellie did what they did for selfish reasons, end of story. Which I love, for once not a cliche ending.

Edit: mediocre might not be the right word, safe or predictable might fit better.

DigitalAnalog  +   269d ago
I'd also like to remark that this is by far one of the least dissonant gameplay to story-wise in a AAA videogame this generation. Many other games fall short of this significantly either placing emphasis with too much padding or surreal moments that take the immersion away from your character.

And as such, they may not have "revolutionised" storytelling but it is by far one of the most refined I've seen. Had ND actually place less emphasis on combat and push through with the AI then it would make up the difference to make it revolutionary. Because almost no games dare attempt something like that today.
GribbleGrunger  +   269d ago
Safe and predictable? Oh my, like I said it's pointless even debating this with some people. It was just a story about a selfish girl and a guy fighting through lots of bad guys and infected ... right? Hurt Locker was just about a guy who defused bombs.

Well they did say they designed the 'best MP ever conceived' with TLOU and that, I think we can all agree was not the case, by a long shot.

But generally speaking, you're right. ND have more than proved their talents.

I love TLOU multiplayer. It's different then what you're use to. Crafting items, being sneaky, the idea that you NEED team work and communication. I love it. But I wouldn't call it the BEST ever conceived" maybe "Some of the best ideas in MP"

It was a nice breather from FPS and it was nice to not see everyone rushing in and going rambo.
Imalwaysright  +   269d ago
No, there is no point because you know that there are games with better stories and characters. As for TloU I absolutely loved that game (my GOTY so far even with the likes of GTAV and Bioshock) and I can't wait for TloU2.

@ Septic agreed TLoU2 has a great story and characters but lets not pretend that there aren't other games with great stories and characters as well and many like MGS3, Grim Fandango or Silent hill 2 were released well before the PS3 was even revealed . ND didn't revolutionized anything. They can craft great stories but that is it.

"@ Kneon and Lukas_Japonicus Ok then and what is so different about ND storytelling that we hadn't seen before?"

In terms of videogame storytelling? A lot actually. Uncharted 1 (2007) brought us unmatched facial animations creating more believable emotions, beautiful locations, excellenty written characters all with unique personalities with top notch mo cap and dialogue. UC2 and TLOU improved upon those things even more.

Storytelling is the conveying of events in words, and images - Wiki. Whereas the story would be the events themselves, that's the difference between storyTELLING and story.

Imalwaysright  +   269d ago
MGS3 uses mocap so I don't know how ND using it on Uncharted makes it revolutionary. The tech was obviously improved as time passed by but that is it.

Also pretty much everthing else you stated is present in other games from emotions to charismatic characters and excellent dialogs.
king_george  +   269d ago

dont waste ur time gribblegrunger. some people just refuse to see :/

anyone with atleast half a brain can see that ND revolutionized this industry and raised the bar quite alot.

questions for you haters: how much critical and comercial praise has ND gotten? how many other DEVELOPERS have come out and flat out admitted that they admire ND's skills? ND has FORCED other devs to step up their game. Hell even peter molyneux, an xbox fanboy, has admitted to being inspired by them. guerilla games has decided to use ND as inspiration as well. not making that up. google it. Gentlemen, I call that revolution
Sony_Fan  +   268d ago
@ gribbleGrunger i think you are actually confused, sure there is a bit to disect in TLOU but it isn't even close to what you are trying to claim, i think you should read more books before trying to make such claims. if you want a game that goes above and beyond complex themes and devices look to xenogears, you can find 12 page literary anlysis essays on that game.

Also you can look towards bioshock infinite for something 10x deeper than TLOU.Now don't get me wrong i love TLOU, and Naughty Dog's Storytelling is still near untouchable, but the story itself although great was safe and simple.

BadlyPackedKeebab  +   269d ago
I am betting now that this savage starlight is an actual game. They will have been working on it since UC3 and thats how team A was able to provide the comics etc for team B while doing TLOF. We should assume the game is pretty far along. I think I am being optimistic but a later half 2014 date is not too out of the question. We know they are using the same engine on ps4 and ps3 so its not as if they have had to completely retool etc. They are most likely using much of the same codebase too like they did with UC and TLOF (I know some people still wont accept that TLOF is not much more than a reskin of UC but indeed it is if you look at the mechanics).

brave27heart  +   269d ago
Although I am firmly in Sonys camp I can empathise with you. The launch window games are okay, but not revolutionary. The way I see it you're buying into the future potential of the console. The best games of next gen wont be the Battlefields, Cods or Killzones, they'll be the games we never saw coming.

~"If only Starlight wasn’t so Savage.” That’s a reference to the in-game comic featured throughout The Last of Us, of course. Grilled again on the rumoured intergalactic title, the luminary added that there’s “not enough space” to talk about it.~

It was truly amazing to see their progression with the technology through the cycle. I feel bad for my PC brethren who decided to sit out on the current gen of consoles and didn't get to enjoy the Uncharted series or The Last of Us. I am sure ND will continue to set the bar even higher.
