The Last of Us Is Proof Enough That There's No Need For A Last of Us Movie

A Last of Us movie is in the works, and if there's one reason that shouldn't happen, it's the game itself. (Culture, PS3)

Yes yes yes, brilliant.
TomShoe  +   196d ago
Should they make a movie?

The Naughty God fan in me says yes...

...but the artist in me says no. The Last of Us's ending was PERFECT. I'm not sure if a movie could replicate what we all felt.

We need to abandon the unspoken notion that movies are above video games and that it should be an honor for them to be made into movies. Metal Gear Solid and Last of Us stand in the same league as movies and yet are being converted to film anyway. It just seems a little silly. The game itself does the job perfectly.

I don't get the point of making games into movies. There's nothing positive I could walk away from with a movie adaptation that I didn't get from the game.
I enjoyed an awesome 14ish hour interactive experience, a 2 hour movie could only leave me disappointed.

.......14 hours? hmm more like 6 this game was way to damn short..

You must have been in a rush to somehow manage to complete this game in 6 hours, considering it's a 12-16 hour game for most

I call bs, no way can you beat it in 6, don't even think in a speed run.

You're right. It's so problematic to make a movie when the game will be much more fleshed out.

Why don't they just make a CG series using upscaled assets from the game?

Keep all the cutscenes, and turn the gameplay sections into cutscenes.

It's so people who don't play games can enjoy the story, Like they do with Books. I say go for it, We might not like it but maybe people who haven't played the game will love it.

If the movie is done correctly it will only further naughty dogs domination in the gaming industry. Will increase there fame and people will be further interested in the next last of us game in the near future. Plus zombie movies usually do pretty well in the movie industry.

it was basically a movie to begin with...

It's already better than any movie of it can possibly be.

Hollywood is runming out of ideas. People who never played the game (or none gamers) will have no idea wtf is going on.

Some people complain about everything. Perhaps the game will remain the best adaptation of this story , a good movie would do nothing but increase the games exposure, and legitimize games as an art form.

There are a number of books, graphic novels and plays I never knew existed prior to a film adaptation being released. And that prompted me to check out the source material. Instead of damning this movie, before it has a chance to prove itself (as readers on this site seem to do so often), I'm going to hope for the best. Sony knows how to make movies.

I'm personally tired of the Last of Us movie hate train. These guys made a fantastic game, especially when considering the story, graphics, and unbelievably well done multiplayer, they created a masterpiece and should rake in as much benefit as possible. These guys don't get paid like the very top artists in other professions but with the added exposure and revenue the movie will bring their way we as fans should be happy for their success. If you are afraid the movie will not do the game justice, don't watch it.

I would rather have the last of us sequel instead of a movie
hollabox  +   196d ago
Why in the hel! is there such a big anti The Last of Us campaign going on? TLOU was one the best games from last gen, I'm sure allot of fans want to see this franchise grow. I would love to see TLOU on my PS4, but nope the gaming media don't want a sequel, don't want a movie, not even a remake.
