    How did they turn The Last of Us into a Joel and Ellie saga when thats how it started? Its not like the universe and franchise existed before them. With that said, I definitely think they could have done a sequel without either one. I wish they had

    Yeah, it is very bizarre to suggest that "The Last of Us" isn't the story of Joel and Ellie. Like completely. The entire game is based around those two characters and their relationship.

    Also, I feel any sequel was going to follow Joel and Ellie. Mostly Ellie imo, as where Joel's journey was basically completed in the first game, Ellie has only now become a young woman, who has to deal with living in this world. At some point with the knowledge of what really happened at the end of the first game. Falling in love, guilt, finding someone to protect in the same manner as Joel. It all feels rather ripe for Druckmann and the stories he like to tell. If Joel is a big part of this game, I think his story might be centered more around what it is like to have his "daughter" resent him.

    The lie Joel told being the focus of the ending moments of the first game set up a potential follow up pretty well. It wasnt some huge cliffhanger and the first game's story would have felt complete without a sequel, but it was a little hook to tell the players that that lie would have future repercussions on their relationship, and that a sequel might deal with their future relationship. So I dont think it's some betrayal or compromise of the franchise that Joel and Ellie are the main focus of the sequel. From the beginning the Last of Us was the story of a father and a daughter.

    In a sense that it's a series about Ellie and Joel now.

    What about the first game ever suggested it wasn't?

    One game isn't a series.

    The gameplay looks absolutely stunning. I had strong MGS feelings watching Ellie sneak around in the environment. Sneaking under the car was particularly awesome. Part 1 is one of my favorite games of all time and Naughty Dog has shown that their second games are always superior. I expect the streak to continue.

    I noticed that the muscular woman doesn't have "Glasgow smile" scars, despite being "one of them". Everyone else, even those Asian kids have it. I wonder...

    I like cults and the Seraphites look really interesting. Are they the primary "villains" of the sequel?

    This game looks like everything I wanted the first game to be. There the gameplay, though entertaining, was kind of clunky. If the writing is serious, the gameplay has to match that realism to a certain extent. Now they utilized every drop of ps4's power to amp up the realism, and the result seems to be an immersive viceral experience. I hope the finished game is as good as the demo

    Which means all that existed of "The Last of Us" was a game that was completely about Joel and Ellie. What suggested that the story of "The Last of Us" doesn't belong to them? This was always the natural continuation.

    You never heard of franchises that introduce new protagonists with every new installment? What part of the title "The Last of Us" implies that the franchise should belong to Ellie and Joel?

    I originally didn't want a sequel to the game, because I felt Joel and Ellie's story was rounded off beautifully in the first game.

    But then again, the same could've probably been said about The Godfather, and I truly do trust Naughty Dog and Druckmann.


    I get the point that it would've been interesting to see some new protagonists, but what really set Last of Us apart from other post apocalyptic games/films/stories, was the connection between Joel and Ellie. So... I get it.

    We don't know yet if there is more story to tell after this, but it would be kind of really cool if they made a trilogy finisher on ps5, so that each of the 3 games is from their own console generation. Each released at the peak of the console's life

    The first game was completely about Joel and Ellie and belonged to them.

    There is no reason why they can't shift things for the sequel.

    They could, but they chose not to. Let's see what they have in story for these characters' continuation.

    I feel that if we got new main characters in sequels, the stories might get more generic (this being a zombie apocalypse series and all). Taking these established characters and evolving them into new exciting directions has to me a lot more potential. Im excited to see Ellie becoming a young adult and what that entails in the world of Last of Us

    Saying that its just "fan-service" is a pretty odd accusition

    I've said it in another thread, but I've recently bought a PS4 Pro, and I am a huge fan of horror (movies, games, etc.). I've seen the Last of Us and it impressed me a lot! It seems part II will be even better.

    My question is: should I buy the remastered version of the first game? I suppose it will make me enjoy much more, right?

    So when is this beast being released? The first one is one of the best games I've played in a long time.
