Hardcore Gamer: Naughty Dog has already confirmed that they had set a sequel to The Last of Us on ice" to focus on the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, but should they bother at all?
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. http://www.gamesoul.it/wp-c...
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.
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
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.
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.
Sequel to Ellie and Joel? No. Sequel set in the same world? Yes.
The Last of Us isn't exactly the kind of game that needs a sequel, however it definitely deserves one.
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.
Nice handle. I'd love a new adventure within the universe.
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.
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." -Naughty Dog
Yo dawg. I heard you like dogs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Just because someone went and murdered some franchise doesn't mean everyone should do the same for theirs.
Whats the point of asking? the fans have spoken and it is likely in the works already anyway since the demand is there.
I want more DLC I need more maps or at the very least some new guns
Do we really need more halo? More Mario? More gears? More God of wars? O stop there's only one the last of us so far
Do We Really Need More of The Last of Us? Well, that depend on the timing. With so many awesome games coming out this year and the next Naughty are going to have to go way beyond than just having a great storyline for the last of us 2.
At least a Vita spin-off like Golden Abyss, and Fight for Fortune (or just DLC for the latter). For some reason I really see TLOU being a Tactical RPG.
Yes, there's hundreds of stories to be told in that world. A full length game telling the story of "ish" comes to mind. But Joel and ellie's story could remain over. All these people saying that the last of us should be one and done, because it was such a masterpiece... I don't get it. The last of us was a videogame. A great one with fun and thoughtful combat. Why wouldn't we want more of it? To "protect" a story? To keep this fun and awesome game play limited to a game we can all recite word for word by now?
Why wouldn't we want more of it? I would love more last of us but I'm concerned on whether the original writer can squeeze out more ideas for last of us 2. Introducing a story for the first time are always the easiest to tell. The second attempt to write another one would be very difficult to do. Plus, it isn't easy to create a new zombie story with out infringing(or borrow) someone else storyline.
The Last of Us isnt a completely original story, it borrows from other storylines, like The Road as many has said before. Practically nothing in this world is original and borrows from some earlier work in the same vein. @jhoward585 Dont get me work i really liked the story but its only fresh because its fresh to a video game. Because the story was so gripping im sure that would entice people to come back for part two to see what else happens in the world. How many people when to go see Avengers Age of Ultron. They didnt say one and done after the orginal, no it was good enough in peoples opinon to warrant a purchase a ticket to see the sequel.
@Abnor_Mal I totally agree, The Last of Us isnt a completely original story. But I think the amazing emotional experienced TLOU had felt fresh. look at it this way- how many way can someone actually Bake a cake. The ingredient are usually the same but if you use the right combination of ingredients to make a cake- it will taste new n fresh again. But when you try to create an offspring of your original recipe it won't be an easy task.
I need a The Last Of Us 2 that's for sure!
I'd prefer not. Is there something so wrong with making a game that isn't a part of some big franchise? I'd like to see more one-off games like The Last of Us so we could see more diversity.
I understand the concept of a game existing alone on its own merits and letting time be the judge of its legacy, but there would be nothing wrong with a sequel, a prequel or a spiritual successor to the defining game of last generation. Plus, by the time it comes out it would have been 4-5 years, which is decent. We don't need it, but I wouldn't complain if ND manages to knock another one out of the park.
there would be nothing wrong with a sequel, a prequel or a spiritual successor. How do you know that? The creator of the content/story are more important than the written story themselves - because they created it. He either got it, or he don't. Its really up to the creators at hand. If they can't squeeze anymore ideas than it would be pointless to make another last of us game.
A concern about whether Naughty Dog could build another great storyline within this universe never even crossed my mind.
This is a brilliant game but enough is enough.
Enough what? Are you worn down by being bombarded with new TLOU games every year?
If it was new games I would be on board but its not. In my opinion they r milking this 1 game alittle bit to much. Like I said. I think TLOU is a brilliant game and I enjoyed the hell out of it but dissecting the game and re releasing it in parts as they appear to be doing seems abit much to me. TLOU hasn't been out for 5-10 years. its been out for 18 months
I'd love to see what happend to Joel and Ellie after the brilliant ending. Why? Because I've grown to love them, even if they are fictional caracters. But They're story is done. But the world is far from done. No matter how Naughty Dog chooses to continue in the sequel, I know they will choose wisely. Because they care as much for Joel and Ellie and the world of The Last Of Us as we do. Also they are brilliant, and we love them for it...
No world "needs" any game. It's about want so do we want more Last of Us? No. Give us something unique instead of going back to create a frankenstein's monster of a game set in the same universe of another that sold well. It's about catching Lightning in a bottle again more than providing us with something to do.
It's ND they don't need our advice. Of they think they can make another the last of us hame set in same universe than I am all for it Kojima nd valve R* cd red project Some of the best developers who have earned a right to work on whatever they want and deserve our full support until they fail us
Yes we do. Maybe not need but certainly want. I say take a page out of resident evil. Of course TLOS had one of the most memorable opening sequences of any game ever. Do that magic with Ellie coming to terms with Joel's decision to save her and kill the medics... Then have one play through as Joel and his relationship with tommy (and awesomeness that druckmman can deliver ensues). Then once that is done open a second play through as Ellie. Both meet at the end of both playthroughs. And a decision is made by Ellie due to certain circumstances. Make decisions matter ant the finally will be determined by the choices you e made during the play throughs. Bam! It would be heart wrenching or heart filling. Epic none the less. This my first post ever. Thanks.
Do we really need another one of these opinion pieces?
Y ask dumb questions?
I only played TLOUR as I never had a PS3,do I want a sequel to the best game I have ever played? Hell yes! But it has got to be done right,Naughty Dog would be one of the few devs that could pull it off and make a game on par with the first. What I dont want is a yearly duff like COD,if it takes another 3-5 years to develop then thats fine by me,the biggest question is do you go with a new set of characters/timeline? How do you better the story that blew everyone away? I think maybe new characters with a different story set at the time of the outbreak,if the Joel and Ellie story continues then time should be taken making sure the story is on par or exceeds the first,the main thing is that the sequel does not ruin the legacy of first game which happens alot with movies. I play TLOUR MP all the time and it is my fav along with Gears,a sequel should add more game modes but stay pretty much the same,underated in my opinion considering its my fav MP in the new gen,pissed I missed out last gen as I will still be playing for years to come absolutely love the MP
Didnt Naughty Dog say that they will not continue Joel and ellies story if there is to be a sequel to TLOU.In my opnion i think that they should start a completely new story with new characters. It doesnt have to be a paralell story about any of the other characters from the first game either, although some do have interesting stories i wouldnt mind finding out more about. Introduce he people in the world because there are more people in the world besides Joel & Ellie. Hire a new writer to bring a new perspective to the world, set it in a different part of the world showing how the infection crossed into different countries, anything. Just take time not to rush it out to the gaming public for a quick cash grab, although i doubt Sony nor Naughty Dog would do that.
The Joel and ellies characters in last of us are so appealing to me that I would love to see the story continue with Joel and ellies. How about a story where ellies is all grown up and she's the one protecting Joel who is now an old man. @Abnor_Mal @jhoward585 Dont get me work i really liked the story but its only fresh because its fresh to a video game. Because the story was so gripping im sure that would entice people to come back for part two to see what else happens in the world. How many people when to go see Avengers Age of Ultron. They didnt say one and done after the orginal, no it was good enough in peoples opinon to warrant a purchase a ticket to see the sequel. Imo, I think Games have to have a more meatier storyline/content than a movie unless the movie itself are broken up in many parts. Usually a 10hour or above game has to have enough content in it to keep your attention for the whole duration of the game, from beginning to end. Whereas a movie have to do the same exact thing for a shorter duration time - at least 2 hours worth depending on the movie. just My 2 cent.
Do we need more Last of Us? Not necessarily, but do we need more games that deliver what Last of Us delivered? Yes, definitely. But do I want a Last of Us 2? Yes, yes I do.
We need more IPs like the first 2 Dead space games,Uncharted and The Last of us. These gems are so few and far in berween.
I would leave that up to Naughtydog themselves to decide. They already have an unannouced PS4 exclusive in early production.
id prefer same world different story.
Let it stand as an untainted masterpiece, bring something new everyone knows naughty dog is the only ones who can perfect games like that
The Last of Us on Ice. Now that'd be interesting...
Yes, Yes, Yes. "Didnt Naughty Dog say that they will not continue Joel and ellies story if there is to be a sequel to TLOU." No..... misinterpreted -> http://news.softpedia.com/n... "In my opnion i think that they should start a completely new story with new characters." like CrashBandicoot without Crash, Unchartd without Nathan... The Last of Us = Ellie.
It's all about what the new journey would be about. The TLOU was about the Fireflies, how they moved so many times and then once found, how desperate and yet unsure about the cure. Plus that intro chapter was something else. What could they do for a second one to edge this. I could see them been quiet for a while and on her 18th birthday, Joel tells her about what really happened with the Fireflies and then no more Joel. New quest for the Fireflies with the now lone wolf Ellie. That's one way to go but I'm sure ND has many ideas as to what be done.
YES! TLOU woulda been soooo much better if it had a horde mode. It absolutely needs a sequel to add this.
yes. I know it will NEVER happen, but we need a PC version..........
