How Naughty Dog Held my Hand in the Wild World of Gaming

Peter from Duuro says: "It’s easy to make mistakes in the wild world of gaming (cough-Crash Bash-cough) and now more than ever it seems all too easy for developers to recycle old ideas for a quick buck. Naughty Dog, however, are consistently trying to stay ahead of the curve, whether it be by pushing a device to its limits, or telling an old story in a never-before-told way. They seemingly pivot and change in ways that they know will be fun and appealing to their fans, something that’s relatively uncommon in this age of copy/pasting. Even now, as they’re preparing for the release of Uncharted 4, it seems the sequel is shaping up to be darker and more mature than ever before, but I’m sure it will undoubtedly be just as beautiful and memorable as its predecessors. How do I know? Put simply; Naughty Dog is one of the few, great developers that can lower the tone, but never lose the colour."

The story is too old to be commented.

Great developer, one of the best on any platform and the best Sony 1st party studio.

Totally agree! I wish they bring back Jak and Daxter

Absolutely. Naughty Dog's games are so good that it's worth owning each PlayStation console just to play their games. I know it sounds hyperbolic but for me it's true.

It's crazy when you look at the history of ND. As developers they have really come a long way. From Crash to The Last of Us, they have grown so much and it's quite amazing when acknowledging it

kraideral1571d ago

They have made games for every generation

Uncharted 4 will bear some resemblance to TLoU in its tone simply b/c those that made the latter will be heading up the final entry. It will be more adult, much darker and unbelievable. I cant wait. Bring it on Druckman and ND. Its gonna b epic.

kraideral1571d ago

I don't think that it will be darker or similar to TLOU in tone. Sure it might borrow some tiny elements but Drake will still be a funny guy who murders 1000+ people. It'll be a fun and epic adventure like the previous ones

Everything about ND is too overrated already... Honestly. Whether you disagree or not.
