GI: "I beat The Last of Us a couple weeks ago, but that adventure is still ringing through my head like a brass bell. The game easily sits on my list of the five greatest games from this generation, and yet, I don't think I want to see a sequel."
I agree, The Last Of Us doesn't need a sequel. Would be great if Naughty Dog made a new IP.
So gears, halo, uncharted, tomb raider, Mario, Zelda, metriod, cod, ac, bf, all can have over 3 sequels.....and counting but tlou doesn't need one...or shouldn't have one. Lol wow. I mean it was a masterpiece ....but so was Zelda ocarina of time and that still is running. Why ask nd to make a new franchise when halo 5 is coming mk 10 just came out sf5 around the corner. How about we ask Nintendo to bring more new stuff we are on Mario 17 already. Smh Who doesn't want to see more Joel and Ellie ...I'll tell you who...people who haven't played tlou.
Fanboy much? Just because something is a 'masterpiece' doesn't mean it deserves a sequel. Sequels are made because it takes less work to make big $$$. You're naive if you think otherwise.
I liked the gameplay more than story so it doesn't matter to me if they twist the story and make it work. People are too stuck-up about the story. And arguably the story can continue right where it left off just the way it is. If you think the story is the reason why they can't make a sequel then you are stuck-up person.
I believe it's time for Jak to awaken from his slumber.
a sequel in a completely different country (russia )would be a good idea and probably a massive success
Fanboy...no but I am a fan of tlou...nothing wrong with that. I'm a fan of Mario gears tomb raider battlefield tekken final fantasy street fighter gta uncharted Mario kart metal gear series and wild arms too.....dosent make me a fanboy I just want a sequal for tlou....so many questions unanswered questions, like the beef with Joel's brother and what will happen after the game like will there be a cure.. Or a grown up Ellie ....I can go on bro....so yeah hoping for a sequal isn't a fanboy thing fanboys would say tlou is the best game ever and all others are trash....and I know that's not the case...fanboys turn opinion around to make it look like fact..smh
The Last of Us is widely regarded as the greatest game of the last generation and it's sold massively well. The game's world is ripe for more stories to be told, be it with Ellie and Joel together, individually or with other characters. Naughty Dog are a studio that always attempts to push themselves with each new game and judging by how they're handling Uncharted 4 all of those positive new additions would be even more vastly expanded within the next Last of Us game, into an even more brutal and deep world, more expansive, while adding an even greater level of believability compared to the last game. It's clear more can be done with the story of The Last of Us, it's an amazing setting and it's definitely built for more stories to be told within it.
why all the hate for this comment? Everything about Last of Us was masterful; The sound, character and creature designs, the level design, the story and music. Most agree that the game was an emotional punch to the gut, and for me, left me feeling quite strange an entire WEEK after beating the game. I felt emotionally exhausted. That said, the game does not need a sequel. It's great that Naughty Dog sees potential for one, and I have no doubt they can deliver an incredible experience. So many of are terrified by the prospect of a perfect standalone game/movie/thing becoming "tainted" by a potentially inferior sequel. For every "Jurassic Park" we get a "Lost World" For every "Matrix" we get "Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions" (and while the second one had it's moments, the third one was an embarrassment to the series). On the flip side (at least in terms of movies), we get Aliens, Terminator 2, The Two Towers, Dark Knight, and so forth, so there is always a chance it can be done even BETTER then the original. With games, we get Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty 2, Soul Calibur 2, Assassin's Creed 2, and Uncharted 2. But I could go on a tangent of all the franchises that have been crippled by unnecessary sequels. The point? If a game has an incredibly satisfactory three act structure, and it truly does feel "complete", and does not leave people wanting more, That is the mark of a singular experience. Going back to movies, that's why Spielberg RARELY does sequels, because he believes that his movies (as annoyingly elitist as this may sound) are so good, they stand as the ultimate expression of the story, with nothing left out, no compromises or open ends left to tie up. This means that the viewer leaves the theater with a complete understanding of the content that was shown, and subsequently, is satisfied with the end result.
Spielberg does lots of sequels what are you talking about? Executive producer or director or writer this is what he had been a part of. Indiana Jones Jurassic park Back to the future Gremlins An American tail Men in black Transformers All of these had multiple movies
I agree, though if they made an open world last of us, that would be pretty damn ambitious. It could be Naughty Dog's GTA. Of course, an giant, badass Jak and daxter game could also be Naughty Dog's GTA
No, just no. Open world games have no pacing...something that makes tlou great. Story telling is done in a linier fashion open word games have too many distractions...look at gta great story great characters...but in order to play the story you have to lose the cops or take out enemy gangs on the way to the next point of the story. It just ruins pacing...tlou and gta are two differnt genre. The last thing we need is another open world game.
Enough with this crap articles already!! Who wouldn't want a sequel to such an awesome game??
Just go into their dreams and kill them all , Freddy Krueger.
I agree. That said, I have complete faith in Naughty Dog to make an awesome game regardless.
"This opinion originally published on July 15, 2013." This should be reported. I absolutely love TLOU, but this article is a few years old and probably shouldn't have made it through the approval process. I think the author just reposted it.
I think this is why you need to STFU !!!! We want games. We want The Last Of Us 2, Uncharted 5-6-7.. Doesnt matter Just STFU men..
The author mentions only completing TLOU weeks ago, so fresh in his /her head. Well I beat it 2yrs ago and I'd like a sequel thank you.
Because the article is over two years old.
Admittedly I didn't read the article at all, and had I read it, I'm not sure I would have checked the original publish date either...Thanks for clearing that up! Now my comment is justifiably redundant. Lol.
I would like to see new characters, and gameplay that is actually fun and unrestricting even if you don't play on hardest.
I couldn't careless, despised TLOU and have no interest in this either
Well thankfully your opinion does not change the fact that it was a masterpiece. And if you couldnt care less, why are you commenting here?
Cause he still has interest in expressing his opinion, douchebag.
Usually people don't go out of their way to discuss things they despise. Why is questioning such a person's motives cause for name calling?
It is my right to express my view, if you were like me who paid hard earned money for some games and still felt that you were ripped off, then it is only natural to express disapproval I have nothing against people enjoying TLOU, but for me...I did not like it
Stop calling people douchebags, douchebag.
"Horizon? yawn" Üncharted is just crap" "I couldn't careless, despised TLOU and have no interest in this either" You have no agenda against ps at all. Those are definitely impartial and justified comments. (sarcasm). I would have respected your opinion if you actually had legitimate and respectful concerns, but you are clearly just trolling. On topic: It's pretty much been confirmed that there will be a sequel. We'll most probably see a reveal at e3 2017 if this is true.
I was just about to post those very same comments. Doesn't sound like somebody giving an honest opinion.
Like I said, IT WAS NOT FOR ME
@Guyman I am a long time ps gamer who felt let down by a lot 1st part exclusives of late including TLOU and that is it. Quite Frankly I dont care if you respect my opinion or not If TLOU is your fav game of last gen I respect that completely
Okay fine, I retract my statement, thank you fanboys *smh*
Why not?like guy said before.open world and go back to joel's life when it 1st happen and give him moral choices for the player to choose from.
It doesn't need a sequel but, it is wanted.
Majority of gamers and Naughty Dogs business bottom line says stfu. They made 3 AWESOME Uncharted games (and part 4 looks out of this world). whytf would they leave a potential amazing series like TLOU after one game.. killyourslf.
I have no problem with it as long as it's an all-new story with new characters, and has little or nothing to do with Joel and Ellie.
I highly disagree, I want another one! I wanna see older Ellie and old man Joel
The thing is that whenever I bring up how much I didn't like the ending, because I feel that Joel took the easy way out, and saved the girl he became attached to rather than trying to save the world...everyone tells me what an awesome artistic choice it was, because it was left to the players imagination if the world would ever get saved, or if it was just doomed due to how evil human nature got....so if that's the selling point...then picking up the story again is exactly the wrong choice....then there is NO mystery to what happened, and Joel was just a jerk for not trying to save the world.
He wanted to save her because he failed to protect his daughter and didn't want to see another girl die under his protection. It was his paternal instincts. He had a bond with her and wanted to protect her at all costs. He watched humanity fall apart infront of him. Everyone he cared about died. Why would he want to save that?
Joel and Ellie's story doesn't need a sequel, but a new game in the franchise couldn't (and won't - since it's inevitable) hurt. But then, I said this two years ago when I first read this article (yes, it was published in July of 2013).
Why I'm not going to read this article.
I don't think they should make a TLoU sequel either. I'd prefer just a new IP...or at the most, maybe something set in the same world...but not a true sequel...let Joel and Ellie just disappear into the wildness like Joel intended.
So one of the greatest games of all time doesn't warrant a sequel? Ok then.
They should let Joel and Ellies story end and bring new characters. Not call it The Last of Us 2 -_- And add a horde mode. I wanna team up on Clickers damn it! Then release game. #prostrat
AGREED. Only people who discovered Naughty Dog last/this gen want a sequel. REAL ND fans want a Jak IV. Jak said at the end of Jak 3 "with all our adventures ahead you wouldnt last a second without me" Last time I checked Joel never said that to ellie, the daxter wannabe. Daxter is by far the seuperior wise cracking sidekick to Ellie. Atleast Daxter was iopen about his sexuality whereas Ellies like "oooo I like girls but you wont find out till the dlc tehe" whereas in every jak game Daxter talks bout boobs and girl parts.
oh shut up
I want another game in The Last of Us world, preferably without Joel and Ellie, as I liked how their story ended, but wouldn't be too bothered if it was. Saying that, Naughty Dog know what they're doing more than I or anyone here does, and I have no doubts they'll do what's best for the franchise.
As much as it definitely doesn't need a sequel.... I still want one with the same characters.. That was the first game in a long time that I felt connected to the characters in a game.
Whatever ND creates, I want it!
It is called the LAST OF US for a reason! MEANING IT IS THE LAST GAME IN REGARDS TO THAT GAME! ILLIMINARTZ CONFIRMED
Or a new game called "The Second to Last of Us!" XD XD XD XD
I think the world of TLOU is ripe for more stories, but I think they should make it set in china or Japan, somewhere in Asia
I'd welcome another one and totally buy it. Even if they just made a DLC with that black dude and his brother or those... Well not to give anything away but yeah.
