Why Naughty Dog's Still Got It - Gaming's Greatest Companies

GamingUnion: "Although they haven't produced bucket loads of original IPs in their lifetime, Naughty Dog has still become a staple brand within the game industry. The IPs they've created have offered gamers the very best in terms of creativity and graphics and you'll be pushed to find someone who will disagree. With Crash Bandicoot, Jax and Daxter, and, of course, the Uncharted series under their belt, many would say Naughty Dog has got it made. In honor of the recent announcement of the Last of Us, we're taking time out to focus on what makes Naughty Dog such an excellent developer and how the brand got started."

Doing it right. I love em!

Bioshocking2463d ago

I love Nd too.... they are one of my favorite dev's amoungst Irrational and Rocksteady..

Looking forward to the last of us....

Now... everyone wait for J-Blaze to make a troll comment

ChiVoLok02463d ago

I've noticed ND usually takes ideas that have already been shown (Uncharted being similar to Tomb Raider) and shows them in a new, interesting way. Yeah they are doing right alright.

mephman2463d ago

I'm hoping The Last of Us can continue their hot streak.

kneon2463d ago

What's with the disagrees? Are people really so pathetic that they hope for a game to not be good?

Drekken2463d ago

Yes they are... Someone probably logged into 5 accounts to disagree because they are jealous. It's very pathetic, but common place on n4g.

solidsheep2463d ago

I don't agree/disagree on peoples comments but felt i had to do it this one time.

/facepalm up to 10

Fylus2463d ago

It's funny that there are some hidden trolls running through this comment section disagreeing with every positive comment about ND (Which is all of them so far), and not bothering to explain their disagrees. Ignorant children...

soundslike2463d ago

I haven't been the one disagreeing but I will say that: No, it doesn't. I only play on ps3 now, and these shameless fanboy articles/posts just make me puke in my mouth a little bit. Can't say I'm the only one.

ND is great but some of y'all are drinking the kool-aid

Blastoise2463d ago

Agree`d. Chances are they have never owned a PS3

Fylus2463d ago

There's a reason you have one bubble.

trenso12463d ago

was thinking the same thing, why disagree it makes no sense.

There good, Uncharted 3 was kinda ify but seeing the uncharted 2 team was working on LOF i can forgive them. Hopefully LOF will be something more than just generic zombie game

Megaman_nerd2463d ago

What do you mean by ify?

Uncharted 3 graphics are better. Multiplayer is better. And the overall gameplay is much more better. Weapon have better feedback, the set pieces were even bigger, puzzles were more challenging, platforming sections were more interesting and many new gameplay elements were introduced like: jumping off a ledge to knock down enemies, throw back enemy grenades and the melee system was hugely expanded.

Only thing it lacked was in the story department but even then it still was pretty good story.

Radiowrecker2463d ago

yeah it was a great game no doubt but the story is where is fell apart for me, they started with a good concept with his char development but it felt like they concentrated on the action sequences and fitting the plot to them instead of the other way around. They asked some questions or brought up something from Drake's past but seemed to drop it shortly after, and they could have elaborated what happened between him and elena (probubly butchered her name)

again i highly enjoyed the game and they did a great job improving what they needed too but i still feel they could have had an amazing game if the story wasn' lack of better words chopped up

PinkFunk2463d ago

I thoroughly enjoyed UC3. Every aspect of it.

The only thing that I could qualify as being a "letdown" was that the ending seemed simplistic. I don't necessarily blame them for it. It's just they raised such an intrigue throughout the game, just so that they could stop the evil spirits from getting out and sink the city.

I just find that they build up such mystery in order to never really delve deep into what could be an epic. But again, the game is fantastic.

Thatguy-3102462d ago

Gameplay is better? Enlighten me on that please because from what I remember Among Thieves had way smoother gameplay than drake deception. Then the combat where every time you want to hit someone it will lead to many moves where eventually you'll get stuck fighting one guy while the other agents shoot. Uncharted 3 has the Best Graphics and technological wise it surpassed Among Thieves by a mile stone but gameplay it was a set back IMO and even the story didn't do it for me. Multiplayer is where this game really improved on and is what keeps me playing the game. There are chapters in the campaign thy I really enjoy but it's just because of how amazing it looks like the shipwreck level and the desert scene is Mind Blowing. Here's hoping that TLOF will offer and emotional driven story that will be talked about for many years :) ND deserves it.

Maybe people complain about uc3 end, but after uc2 last fight against lazarovic, who almost costed me a new dualshock,it was sooo frustating, when you had to hit him just one more time, and grenades were all over you,and he run so fast.. that was sooo frustrating for me,I felt like throwing the gamepad against my tv.

I was wishing uc3 end wouldn't be that hard and frustating.I want to finish the story and keep my smile, don't want a almost impossible to beat final boss, that will spoil all the pleasure. So for me, uc3 end was cool.

I still have most of the levels printed in my face and memory.though London undergroud was a bit boring and too dark, all the rest.. wow.

When we see Elena and start wlking in the village, those houses are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in a game.the lights, colors,houses surface, simply incredible.

There's one thing that scares me. I can't imagine what naughty dog will be able to do, with ps4. Whatever may be, it will look insane.

There must be some frustated Xbox gays, I mean, guys, who come to ps3 channel and do a mass disagree.
Even if you say "naughty dog is the studio who developed the uncharted games", you get 10 disagrees.

Come on, kids, you want to participate in our debates, but you didn't learn how to read and write, yet. therefore, you can only click on buttons, and disagree one looks nice to you. Why don't you come back, when you can read and write, in, well, 10 years ?

Meanwhile, just pick you brother's playboy, and watch don't need to read anything, there. That will keep you away from spamming the ps3 channel with your disagrees.

Amy Hennig? She's one of the most famous female game developers after all.
