Co-writer and narrative lead Halley Gross had high praise for her Naughty Dog colleagues. She also said they're trying to create the most complex, nuanced character in a videogame yet with Ellie in The Last of Us Part II.
This will be glorious
Everything points to another masterpiece that will set some gaming standards as usual from ND. can't wait
Shh, be careful with the excessive praise on a single player game, times have changed!
So A Young Girl whos Mother Survived a Mushroom Apocalypse, and Is The Cure and likes Girls oh and can hunt n kill
Oh the amount of dislikes. Some section wants the game to fail but damn ! The disappointment they will go tthrough but that's usual for them lol! Cant wait for this game. I know alot of xbox people who bought PS4 because of games like these. Respect and appreciate those who support good games.. like i personally love GEARS and will always support it. Also waiting for Initiative to announce their new game. So SALTY people can dislike and be disappointed and Real people will enjoy the masterpiece regardless which ever platform it is.
Ultranova "Shh, be careful with the excessive praise on a single player game, times have changed!" GOOD MORNING Sir. You have been living under the rock and failed to notice that SP games are doing good business. So i ask you to be more informative next time when you wake up...
Nobody does creates characters like Naughty Dog -- great writing, great tech.
Looking like another Game of Gen.
Loving all these mysterious downvotes from you know who.
Im Worried the writing will be iffy....gotta wait and see!
It's going to be a monster, and I can't wait.
Well so far the indiction is that it's gonna be another hit for Naughty Dog.
Complex character? Gonna have to get in line behind Mario and Link.
Gonna b epic.
Well said!! They sure are the best!!! They surely proved that the game does not need to be long with monotone voice-overs and endless boring dialogues to be a good game.
All they do is third person games. they are the best at it.
Hmmm....I think ND could do that, but I think trying to create a complex character should come naturally through the story and by having them react in natural ways while growing through the story.
I really cannot wait for this game, great end of generation send-off for the PS4. On the topic of complex characters, at least physically complex, I just watched a video on DF about Star Citizen. I'm not a PC owner, and I don't foresee myself getting into all of that, but it was a great peek at the types of things we can expect as gaming progresses. Great things to come for sure, gamers should rejoice. EDIT: Here is the link to the video for those interested: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
...& they will!
Whats to see here? Its a gay character that does not appeal to me. All that pretentious complexity means nothing.
You're not giving Naughty Dog enough credit and are making assumptions based on attempts others have made to write a gay character. I'm sure they've written Ellie better than that. If they've done it right that will just be one aspect of her character and not something to make a bigger deal out of than it needs to be. We'll see when the game releases, but I have faith that they're not adding another pile of trash to the SJW dump.
You're a bigot, no way to spin it. Such a simple minded fool that obviously doesn't understand the word pretentious.
Throwing insults is not going to create any constructive discussion at all.
It's so cute that you think that a characters sexual orientation is what makes them complex or simple.
"REVENGE FOR MY GIRLFRIEND" isn't very complex or nuanced .
If that's the only thing going for her character then yeah, but it most definitely wouldn't be.
Really, really excited for this! Another game world I cannot wait to explore. Great way to cap off the gen and Ghosts of Tsushima is still coming as well. Good times, well except for the folks down voting because people are excited about a game!
And as long as gameplay isn't sacrificed then I am all for it.
Don't make me laugh lmao. Complex characters in ND games pfft. If only they weren't in the same veins as blockbuster movies/shows, they would have better characters.
Joel was a pretty complex character. His motivations were simple, but the reasons for them, and his growth through the story were a complex set of emotional connections which led to the conclusion based on his decisions.
Unpopular opinion I still think Horizon Zero Dawn looks better visually than TLOU2, though the animation and AI is WAY better in TLOU2
Well, if anyone can do it, it's Naughty Dog.
This game gonna be soooo brutal and dark...,...,...Can't Wait!!!!
Complex = gay according to ND
People simplifying things down to the "gay" issue shouldn't speak, you obviously don't have the mental capacity to discuss things like character development and story.
Really? because the two gay characters in their games aren't overly complex, nor are they passing them off as complex. Joel is a heterosexual, and is one of the more complex characters in gaming. Maybe Ellie will be more complex in TLOU2, but I imagine it's not going to be because she's gay. The motivations that may come from her homosexual relationship could be the same as you'd get with a heterosexual relationship, and probably has been done thousands of times in all different forms of media. Assuming that they're talking about her being gay is why she's complex, or trying to make her complex, is just a sad attempt at trying to hate on something you don't agree with. I'm really tired of all the forced inclusion in games nowadays. But, ND has proven themselves as story tellers that know how to do things right. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they can deliver, and if they fall short of that by making it into a gay/woman empowerment story, I'll be more disappointed than mad.
Because as we all know, if something is complex, then it's definitely cool /s
I've lost alot of interest in this game since Joel has been pushed to a background character, and more than likely will not be playable. I liked the way those two worked together and I'm having Metal Gear Solid 2 flashbacks, it was the first to take a well established main character and replace them with a woman. :) The whole 'chick' stalks people with a bow thing has been done to death before with Tomb Raider. The 'this woman is deeper and more complex because she's gay' seems to be all ND is pushing, it's boring in this day and age.
