Jesus, this guy really thinks he's an anime character. He's been everywhere on N4G as of late.

This isn't going to end well, writing for a game is nowhere near the same thing as writing a screenplay.

Maybe this is made for non-video gamers first and foremost then video gamers second?
Maybe its high time video game ideas really transcend the video game medium BIG TIME towards others like movies, tv shows, like comics transcended the print medium?

Druckman and Straley specifically stated they drew inspiration from movies, novels to make TLOU so there is quite a connection that makes sense to give back.

I hope the movie is successful but at the same time I hope Neil doesnt decide to leave ND and pursue a movie making career.

I'm not sure it matters. If they got a horrible team for Uncharted, they'll probably get a horrible team for The Last of Us. I love Raimi, but he's only producing. God knows what moron they'll get to direct.

BUT WHY DO WE NEED THIS??? Didn't the game present this story perfectly fine? I think Neil Druckman is a megalomaniac for doing this. It's so unnecessary.

I agree, plus we already know how it ends.
camel_toad  +   152d ago
I agree but there's two good reasons why they would do this. Money is the obvious one and 2nd if you put yourself in a game devs shoes, you would be ecstatic at the idea of having something you worked on go to the big screen.
kneon  +   152d ago
Less than 10 million people have played the game, there is a huge number of people who would never play this game but who might very well go see the movie.
strangeaeon  +   152d ago
So the movie needs to be made because of the potential $$$?
kneon  +   152d ago
Isn't that why every movie is made?

They are running a business, if they see potential for a good ROI then they should pursue the opportunity.
strangeaeon  +   152d ago
I agree, the story was told precisely as it was intended, I fear a movie treatment may do more harm than good.

Just STOP!!
