The Last of Us designer Ricky Cambier says classic games like Ico and Resident Evil 4 helped Naughty Dog shape the upcoming survival-action game's powerful story and characters.
Great games to be inspired by.
took the words right out of my... fingers?? RE4 is arguably one of the best, if not the best, survival horror zombie game (I want to make it clear zombie games are not my cup of tea since i've never played them hardcore and am basing it off what i hear apologies to anyone if i offended anyone). ICO... well it's ICO that's all that needs to be said...
RE4 and Ico two great games .
Totally agree mate. =]
RE 4 was when it's horror roots nearly went entirely out the window, but it was a great game still! It was so good, that RE 5 and 6 as a combined game wouldn't be enough to stand up to it's greatness and how fun it was. Not to mention the QTE's weren't too annoying, like RE5 and 6. WUDDYA BUYIN? Lol..
ico....never thought of that
I watched an interview in which a naughty dog member stated that the gameplay in Uncharted 2, when you tag along with that Tibetan guy, was the beginnings of The Last of Us when it comes to player and AI interaction. I wonder if the Last of Us would have even been conceived if that mechanic didn't work as well as it did in Uncharted 2.
RE4 of this generation. Sounds about right.
ICO was hauntingly delicious!!!
Children of Men
Two games perfectly blended.. I loved RE 4 & i loved Ico.. Surviving the lands will be a treat & another reminder as to why PS3 rules
MS, leave the Industry you idiots.
I believe MS is responsible for this dumbing down of gaming. They killed the creativity and risk-taking in gaming industry by making the AAA shooter genre and online multi-player popular. In the previous generations of consoles we had creative, original and sometimes weird games because developers were not afraid of taking risks and failing to recover the costs. As a result, we got games like Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Kingdom Hearts, Xenogears, Vagrant Story and many other such original IPs. This time we had to wait a whole generation for such a creative masterpiece to be released. I am glad there are still developers like Naughty Dog and consoles like Playstation out there that have dreams and goals other than money when making a game. I am so excited to play this game.
MS is responsible for stopping gaming progress in the west and esp Japan. Now Sony is rising from the ashes again and planting seeds of life back to gaming. I hope Nintendo does the same. M$ is the Colonel Miles Quaritch of video gaming. They do not understand what they are doing to video games. They are just in here for the money and suck as much money they can such from people and never nurture the industry with quality games that can compete with other forms of entertainment world wide. Sony has my undying respect and support. They earned it with all integrity and magnificence.
If my company leaves the game industry, gaming will fall!!
What has that got to do with anything...?
