Bruce Straley, one of the veteran game directors responsible for The Last of Us and its Left Behind expansion (not to mention much of the Uncharted series), has called for unionization in the video games industry. Straley was not credited for his role in shaping the setting and characters featured in HBO's hugely popular adaptation, with Neil Druckmann and Craig Maizin being awarded official writing credit.
Well that effing sucks, probably he was the reason why TLOU part 1 was so damn amazing gameplay and story wise, saying this because the horrendous story turn that TLOU part 2 did with Neil.
I don't even think he's asking for much, just a credit would have done
He helped with the story and world, that's the least he could have done. It's nice to just get a "special thanks to" credit.
I'm surprised he's said something, he's been quiet about NaughtyDog, Neil and TLOU since he left dropping only little hints on Twitter or liking comments.
Can’t agree more, the dirty secrets of the entertainment and video games industry.
If this is so, then get his name where it belongs. However, I do believe his name may be on the original work, the game itself. Since the show had to be rewritten to an extent, how much we don’t know, and he had nothing to do with THAT is probably why he isn’t given credit. When parts change it’s considered an entirely different work. Look at any movie that has an Asian version followed by the much later American version. The departed for example. It’s almost word for word at points. Still zero mention of any of the original writers.
His name is on the work he created which was the games.
Neil and Craig worked on the show, Nd as a whole are mentioned so that includes him unless people want the credits to include all of the people from naughty dog who worked on the games also lol
Standard fake outrage in this age we are living in, getting sick of on constant everyone's a victim of something, feel sorry for me.
It's happening so much now it's hard to feel sympathy for anyone as it's just people fishing cause they know in today's age cause we pander to it.
If that's the case then almost everyone who worked on it from start to finish should be on the credits aswell.
1 or 2 people don't make a game, it's 100s.
Neil is there as he is the only person from.nd working on the show simple as that.
