Charting An Incredible Evolution: Naughty Dog's Growth from Crash Bandicoot to The Last of Us


"In video game development, among the many and above the noise, there stand a rare few. These are the studios who, despite the incredible pressure, competition, and demand for greater and stronger quality games each year, continually produce high-quality pieces of digital history. Naughty Dog is one such studio. The Santa Monica-based studio, which began its work on high profile projects in 1994 and was acquired by Sony in 2001, has provided the industry and gamers alike with some of the most memorable and defining experiences on the PlayStation platform for over two decades." (Crash Bandicoot, PS Vita, PS4, The Last Of Us)

Nobody can top Naughty Dog except Naughty Dog. Truly the best in the business. They make me proud to be a PS4 owner.

To me: Crash and Jak > uncharted and TLoU. Not saying UN and TLoU is bad or anything (they're good IMO but cant top Jak and Crash)

Not sure I'd call it "growth." Their PS3 titles really don't demonstrate the... design lineage of their previous games.

Which is unfortunate. Can you imagine how cool an open-world Uncharted game would be with solid, nonlinear platforming?
