Yes we do. The gaming industry needs more of The Last of Us.

If we get Assassins Creed and Call of Duty every single year, why should we not get The Last of Us once every 3 or so years?

The point being, we need more than just First Person Shooters, Sports games, and RPGs etc. The gaming industry needs these sort of games, but also the game developers that push beyond the boundaries of the tired old gaming tropes. That was what Naughty Dog were able to accomplish with The Last of Us. We might not need a sequel to The Last of Us, but we need devs like Naught Dog to continue bringing the magic.

Naughty Dog should really make a sci-fi open world RPG game. Nuff said.

AudioEppa1311d ago

No.. no they don't.

I hope they continue making third person action adventure games because this industry needs more of them badly, last gen was pathetic.

Naughty Dog makes things they are passionate about. That's what I love about them. They don't make games just for the money, they make them because they love to.

Yes, other studios do this as well but I never see them really state it as much as Naughty Dog.

Aloy-Boyfriend1311d ago

The article is about "More content for the game," not "More games like TLOU."

This industry need variety, not games being alike.

Now finally on topic: More is never a bad thing thing. I think ND has set a good post apocalyptic world where many stories can be told. I'd like a DLC featuring Ish and his partner. And a sequel featuring Ellie all grown up or any new characters

Im not into that much of open world games but i would really love to see the last of us sequel as a sandbox game

joab7771311d ago

We need more IP'S like The Last of Us. I say let it stand. We don't need a TLoU2.

Take the ideas and make something new. The ND name itself will make us take notice. I'd rather see more of the same quality, as opposed to doing it again.

Dirtnapstor1311d ago

I could go for a sequel most definitely. I wouldn't be opposed to having a different set of characters for the sequel, a few years or so after the first one took place...or a parallel story.
TLOU is rich. We need more from it.

Lord_Sloth1311d ago

Sequel to Ellie and Joel? No.

Sequel set in the same world? Yes.

Jalva1311d ago

The Last of Us isn't exactly the kind of game that needs a sequel, however it definitely deserves one.

Pennywise1381311d ago

No! Not every game needs a sequel and unless the last of us can nail it 110% it could take away from how powerful the original story is on its own. Let the story stand on its own and focus on another great new IP.

SpinalRemains1381311d ago

Nice handle.

I'd love a new adventure within the universe.

Zero-One1311d ago

If you're really that sick of the industry and the fact that people like these "tired old gaming tropes" like your some jaded old fart, why are you even here anymore. You don't control what people do.

UKmilitia1311d ago

the best game i have ever played period.
story,characters,setting was nailed to perfection.

it felt real and no toehr game has given me the emotions TLOS gave me.

naughty dog needs to do what naughty dog does and not take advice from people, naughty dog fans arent naughty dog, naughty dog are naughty dog, and they have fans because of it.

Too much dog in this comment

"Naughty Dog doesn't do what Naughty Dog does for Naughty Dog. Naughty Dog does what Naughty Dog does because Naughty Dog IS...Naughty Dog."

Yo dawg. I heard you like dogs.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1311d ago

I wouldn't mind seeing what happened to Joel and Tommy in the years shortly after the outbreak. A story that follows Joel and Ellie would be interesting too. For now, i'll leave all of that to Druckman, because his work on TLOU was exceptional.

spicelicka1311d ago

Well why not?? We get countless sequels on every other game. If not Last of Us then at least something very similar. I liked Last of Us a lot more than Uncharted actually.

joab7771311d ago

So let it be different and stand as a one time deal. Take the talent and ideas and do something else.

The problem is always this. All the previous work is done. So it's easier to make a sequel and make money. I'm not saying it won't be great, or that there havnt been world's that NEED sequels, bit this isn't one. It's perfect how it is.

spicelicka1310d ago

Well I agree with that, which is why I said they should at least make something very similar. You also have to consider that they have a winning formula with this game. The survival horror mixed with strategic gameplay and brilliant story, people want more so why should they just not make more? They don't have to make a direct sequel but they should definitely reuse the formula.

ginsunuva1310d ago

Just because someone went and murdered some franchise doesn't mean everyone should do the same for theirs.

sashimi1311d ago

Whats the point of asking? the fans have spoken and it is likely in the works already anyway since the demand is there.
