Are The Last of Us 2 Naysayers Overreacting?

The success of The Last of Us makes it almost inevitable that a sequel will eventually be made, but some people are adamant that the game ended perfectly and shouldn’t be messed with. Are these people overreacting?

"I think the world is ripe for more stories, but as far as the journey Joel and Ellie goes on it ends with this game."

As you said, ND is a talented and trust-worthy studio. TLOU's story ended perfectly and the sequel (or prequel) will most probably focus on a different storyline. Personnly, I would love the game to be set somewhere else in the world and have completely new characters who will eventually meet up with Joel and Ellie, one way or another.

(But anyway, it's still too soon to talk about it. We'll certainly see UC 4 way before we get the chance to see TLOU 2.)

i hate the fact people are saying TLOU2 isn't needed, its ND we are talking about. They will not do another game in the universe unless it makes sense

and to me personally this big game universe can get few more games made and tell different stories

all i am saying is let's wait before we say we want it or not, trust in ND

uncharted562827d ago

You can say it that way or you can see it this way that ND created a such magnificent world with TLOU, that people have fallen in love with that they are skeptical about a sequel because they are afraid that the sequel may not live up to the hype and the standard of the first game that it will devalue the first game and the world of TLOU. :)

showtimefolks2827d ago


yeh i guess you are right, yet still ND have out done them self time and time again so let's hold our judgement

starchild2827d ago

Spot on. I want to see another game in this universe, but I would like it to revolve around new characters and locals.

Anyway, it's just one of those things I don't worry about too much. Naughty Dog is one of the few developers I trust implicitly. The Last of Us is the best game I played all generation and the Uncharted games aren't far behind.

Can't wait to see what they are going to do on PS4.

I think a story involving Ellie's Mother, Anna, and what she went through would be a good start. She must've gone through a lot before passing, enough to make Marlene nearly insane with wishing to 'protect Ellie' for her and whatever promise Marlene made to Anna.

Reminds me of Breaking Bad in a sense. You have to know when to let go at the high point rather than dragging it out to a low point.

GribbleGrunger2828d ago

I hardly think that a second game could be described as 'dragging it out' though. Even three games couldn't be described as that if they are all unique stories. I'd buy it in a heart beat.

bohangirl842828d ago

I do agree that the best approach Naughty Dog can take for TLoU is to follow the story of two different characters, or perhaps make some sort of prequel.

bjmartynhak2827d ago (Edited 2827d ago )

I think prequels are the last stage of milking:

- Batman Origins
- Gears of War Judgement
- God of War Ascension
- Assassin's Creed 4
- and so son

So we will probably see something in the future before a prequel

ziggurcat2827d ago

assassin's creed 4 isn't a prequel.

ziggurcat2827d ago (Edited 2827d ago )

even if the time period is before AC3, doesn't mean it's a prequel because it's following a different storyline/character.

SnotyTheRocket2824d ago

Batman has had TWO games. Wouldn't call It "Milking".

I'm always fond of games set in the same universe, but have little to no relation to other games in the series. No matter what, though, I have full faith in ND to deliver.

KillrateOmega2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

I like how they ended TLoU. If they were to make another game set in the same universe, then I feel that it would be best if they made either a prequel or a sequel involving different characters.

Don't take the great story given to us in TLoU and drag it through the mud. Have the balls to let it end on a high note.

*Also, what's up with everyone's disagrees so far? It's like they're 2-3 dudes just disagreeing everbody :P*

Fanboys will be Fanboys

I say bring on TLOU2

People were upset over Bioshock getting a sequel, yet 2 and Infinite were pretty awesome
