The Last of Us: Part II may be on store shelves and a colossal success, but that’s not stopping developer Naughty Dog from turning its attention to the future. The Californian team is currently on a hiring spree, and particular interest must be paid to the role of a Level/Environment Designer which makes explicit reference to a single player game. We know that the studio’s also working on a standalone multiplayer game for its post-apocalyptic franchise, but word of an all-new narrative should energise fans.
While it’s little surprise to learn that the team will be turning its attention to the PlayStation 5, a further role for a Tools Programmer states that candidates “will be working on our next generation graphics analysis, profiling, and debugging tool in conjunction with our sister technology groups”. Unfortunately, it’s not much to go on right now, and we can’t imagine the developer will have anything to show outside of the aforementioned online adaptation in the near future.
Still, we’re practically salivating at the prospect of Naughty Dog on PS5.

That's a tough interview. "So tell me how you can improve our team?" erm......
Really looking forward whatever this becomes. This will probably be the game that convinces me to make the jump to next gen.
Savage Starlight - do it Naughty Dog!
Farming Sim with Dina and JJ.
A new IP please 🤗
Sci-fi game, set in space, stunning views of far off galaxies, etc - 100% guaranteed.
@kyleforrester87 either that or Jurassic Park, ooh dinosaurs in space
@carlos82 Dino Crisis 3?
Awesome. Very interested to see what they do next
@nessisonett maybe its not a good idea after all 😅
If it’s going to be more of the same then why even bother? They need to do something different from the uncharted clones & perhaps add multiplayer next time.
@Medic_Alert I meant they should have multiplayer from the beginning. If too much time passes players will lose interest. They pulled a Rockstar move with this one.
@Akurusu Ooh, edgy!
I love their games but I’d love their next one to be along the lines of Jak, Sly or Ratchet on PS5. Mix it up a bit...
It's got to be for that Ape Escape 4.
They needed the power of PS5 to contain it.
@Dodoo Nah, if you want to play kids games buy a Switch!
@Col_McCafferty haha funny you should say that...!
'the game was supposed to be about empathy.'.
That's obvious? Unless people didnt know what empathy means/is
I just hope the next game story is just trying to entertain rather than be 'about' stuff.
As much as I really enjoyed The Last of Us I and II, I'd love it if ND's next title was cheerful and upbeat.
Kinda feel it's needed when the real world has been very dark lately.
Why I'm looking forward to Insomniac's Spidey and Ratchet and Clank, plus Ember Lab's Kena: Bridge of Spirits too on PS5. There's an air of vibrancy and optimism about them.
@Perryg92 Uncharted is the 'light', Last of Us the 'dark'.
Maybe a new IP that falls somewhere in between.
JAK AND DAXTER!!
New ip please
Love to see them do Sci-Fi!
@Akurusu this comment makes no sense.
@Zombie9ers I've been hoping for a delicious sci-fantasy from ND for ages!
@Akurusu so, like rockstar released gta online later than gta v and it became this massive cash cow for rockstar? Like that?
Hopefully is a new IP, I wouldn't mind a gta like game from them seeing as we probably won't see a new gta ever again.
@Dodoo That’s what I want too, but as you saw above there are way too many people who think light hearted games are kiddy. Some people just want to be entertained and not have some overdone message explained in the game.
@Col_McCafferty Their games have the same template and are repetitive. That’s no secret.
Hopefully they make something less divisive.
I don't care what they make, I am going to buy it.
What ever it is you can guarantee its a game made for lesbians and he/she's. Tlou2 was an utter embarrassment of a game. How much you wanna bet were be playing as a women ? Generic white female.
Utter *****. No thanks, Cuckman
Just finished the game there and I would say it was good but not game of a generation good like all the critics are suggesting. I would like to see something new from ND firefly the game perhaps
TLOU2 tanked, let's see if Naughty can redeem themselves.
Trust me GTA 6 will be the next game after Red Dead redemption 2 The only difference we might not see it for the next 6 years 😢
That is seriously biased If you think the last of us part 2 is an utter embarrassment then you are nothing but a biased hater there's no way around it The more you admit it the better it will be 😉👍
@Kafkaesque How can you call it ***** when they haven't even begun making it yet 😅 someone makes one game you hate and automatically everything they make for now and forever is *****?
Biased hater detected please avoid this person at all cost
It's like you read my mind @kyleforrester87.. You wouldn't happen to be a Jacksepticeye fan, would you? I only ask bc Jack/Seán is friends with the voice actor that portrays Joel in the game, which is Troy Baker.. Seán, also is adamant about, if not more excited about, the fact that Naughty Dog were dropping hints throughout The Last of Us: Part II about the next game they're going to be making. Seán said almost VERBATIM, of what you said. So if you stretch just enough, you could think that Seán has, somewhat, of an inner loop or channel closer to the inner circle than most, meaning we all could very well be seeing a Naughty Dog: Space bound action/adventure/puzzle/semi-open world/shooter type game on the Brand New and powerful Playstation 5 Console.. It would be so nice to see naughty dog run along a 'Dead Space' type, vein, with even more Adventure/Action/etc. into a infinite amount of backdrop locations with amazing new world engines....and....I can only imagine the pristine graphics. I think that would be one AMAZING first step to spring board themselves off the new PS5 console into something that they could make into a sequel or even a trilogy..BUT One can only hope and pray that is could possibly be the exact future.. SO, if it's true then you heard it here first! (I think....)
Less divisive are you being serious? Video games needs to be more diverse than anything else because the biggest problem with the gaming industry is there are too many masculine ***** thinking it's always about the male protagonist which is why I always support playing as a female And so what if I am a male I prefer playing as a female protagonist to show my support and eliminate masculinity 😑👎
@Commander91_YT I, personally, don't think there's a need to eliminate masculinity, but I agree that it should be a female just to show progressiveness. I mean it's not like it would be hard for Naughty Dog to do. Nice comment!
@Commander91_YT yup nevermind the crunch culture and numerous stories about what a ***** person Druckmann is, I'm just a hater. Jesus you lemmings are pathetic. You're exactly what creeps like Druckmann rely on to get away with their shady *****. Zero principles
@Commander91_YT yes yes you're for all the good things and against all the bad things. You're so wonderfully virtuous 🙄
Actually yes masculinity needs to be eliminated simply because if you think about it logically there are too many masculine people that believe there should only be a male protagonist and they feel weird playing as a female because they believe females are weak and shouldn't be strong like a strong guy which is not true females can be just as strong as a male can be But you're right it's not the first time naughty dog has shown female support like they did for the first time In the last of us part one when you switch to playing as Ellie 😉👍
@Leroy1985 why the f*$! would it matter what friggin gender we play as!? Why not a game that gives you the choice of which character to be and is different throughout the entire game, giving you a second perspective and a second playthrough for the price of one game? And who cares if they're lesbians or alien frackers? If progress from Human to Human, no matter, bothers you then I believe you shouldn't play a game like this or check your inner emotions and think about things rationally about how much it really affects you to play as a female or ANY gender, anywhere on the sexuality Spectrum.
I think you have some mental issues dude or you are seriously beyond uneducated Especially calling names to a random person you don't even know pretty much goes to show how uneducated you are 😂👎Neil druckman is a fantastic director and writer and what makes you think I am a lemming? If you have a serious problem with diversity then don't play video games at all because game developers will continue to show diversity support throughout the years But you make it sound like being virtuous is a bad thing? I don't know where all that negativity is coming from but you have to stop catering to fake news or false information there is no crunch culture It doesn't exist It's one huge misconception 😉👍
@Commander91_YT wil read my reply to @Leroy1985. He's obviously 35ish and stuck in old ways that him and others need to, rather deal with, or avoid.. I don't believe the main character's gender or sexuality no matter what it is should be a debate because it shouldn't matter either way. And why not make the next character alien neither male or female or there's plenty of other ideas. They have the means to do this. I even gave a second gameplay through the choice of a male or female character select at the beginning of the game giving the game and the person playing it a second perspective and another possibility of an injury different game experience and all wrapped into one game that could be played multiple way. Why not equal it instead of overly dominate it with male or female?
@Commander91_YT thank goodness, someone with sense...
@Commander91_YT and I agree naughty dog has taken a step in the right direction so what's to say they wouldn't go further? They've already opened it up to public scrutiny and have been decently received. Thinking logically they will continue using both male and female of whatever sexual orientation in their future games. The best way to predict the future, is but to look at the past.
Dude I applaud you 👏 It was about time someone like you stood up against LBGTQ haters You have my respect 👏😎 we need more people like you on the internet It shouldn't really matter what gender we play as in a story driven game as long as the script is good the rest will make it even better there are several games you can play as a male or female and give you choices and it will actually affect the story like for an example Dishonored 2 You can play as a male or female such as corvus or Emily and they play different stories but they are both connected into one story You can also do the same in fallout 4 or rage 2 It's not the first time naughty dog has faced public scrutiny due to LGBTQ haters they even hated uncharted the lost legacy just because you play as Chloe Frazer and They hate Nadine Ross Just because she beat up Nathan Drake lol
Lesbians detectes. Waaaah women arnt represented properly in games, stfu you absolute wrong UN's. Take your penis envy elsewhere. Sick of playing as generic white lesbians/ he/she's
Having them rammed into every dammed game just to be politically correct, it's pathetic. And at least tlou2 flopping shows we don't want it, I get the feeling most critics are lesbians or he/she's thats why it got great scores, users soon put that rite, thank God.
It's not about not wanting to play as a women it's about ruining games just to please you idiots.
Any hopes of a LoU. Like short game the time between 1 and 2. Maybe a dlc or something.
Yeah who the hell cares what the gender, or sexual preference, of the character you are controlling is. You don't hear any moans and groans when say Gollum, or an earthworm, or any other type of unaesthetically pleasing entity is the character you are in control of. If the most hideous, vile, and undesirable thing you can imagine were the focal point of the game you'd have no reservations moving your fingers to control that beast. But, if it's a girl, well that just crosses the line then huh? How unevolved are you? I bet you had no problem controlling Samus while playing Metroid though. "Can't visually see that it's a female so it doesn't count". That way of thinking is just weird to me. I'll go beyond fantasy and videogames and say; if there were a girl in my neighborhood that was hot as hell, and provided that we got along, I wouldn't care if she were purple or green I'd be all over it.
@Commander91_YT bro, it just goes to show how much irrational fear and bigotry that people have against things they do not understand. There's already too much hate in the world. Why would you want to argue about the way you look or act in an unrealistic environment inside a video game? And I hate to say it but I believe that are game developers and their teams I really to blame. Now let me explain. The reason it upsets so many people I think is because we have came so far from Pong to Super Mario 64 to nowadays some of, if not, the most realistic games to date.. I believe it's becoming too real for people that have mixed feelings on the issues but again I digress. It shouldn't matter who or what or how you are as a main character in a video game, or any character in a video game. If people don't like that I suggest looking inward and soul-searching or simply just playing different games. Instead we get much too much hate for something that is fictional and meant for entertainment. There are plenty of movies but I don't like so you know what I do? I don't watch them. Same way with any music on the radio today or Internet too. If there's something I don't like I change the channel. Fear is an unusual thing and hopefully one day...hopefully...we are able to control it more than it controls us..
Listen kid I think it's about time you get off the internet because your stupidity is really embarrassing towards humanity I recommend educating yourself instead of being a LBGTQ hater If you are sick of playing as a female then don't play video games at all And it's not about political correctness It's about video games being diverse not just strictly to the male audience but to the female audience as well And once again you are pretty damn uneducated if you think the last of us part 2 horribly flopped It's by far the highest selling PS4 game of all times People like you is actually the real problem I don't know why you care about the protagonist sexual orientation it shouldn't matter if they are gay lesbian bisexual or straight as long as the script is good the game will become successful So do me a favor keyboard warrior go to bed and think about what you're doing in life 😉👍 educate yourself kid.
That is true there is way too much fear & bigotry in this damn world some people allow their fear to control them just because they do not understand how it works but I am different from them If I don't understand something I will educate myself And those type of people who complain how you look or act I call them self entitled douche bags some people need to mind their own business and stop judging people how they look or act only God and Jesus Christ possess that power fear can make people do things they will later regret in life But I did started to notice that some people are not liking how realistic video games are becoming even call of duty modern warfare is the most realistic game I have ever seen and some people complain the game is too realistic and if they want to watch something that is realistic they prefer to watch a movie or a TV show They prefer cartoonish graphics over realism People should not hate a video game because 95% of games are purely fictional and made for entertainment only But it's normal not to like something but to hate on it in a biased way is simply not acceptable People like that are being closed-minded instead of being open-minded And anyone can easily control their fear by simply conquering it and not allow it to control your emotions fear works in mysterious ways fear solely comes from Your subconscious and it's basically telling you it doesn't understand this piece of information And it's unable to process that information and it makes the person paranoid preventing them from educating themselves as long as we conquer our fear we will be able to adapt to anything 😉👍
@Commander91_YT I get what you are saying and I agree for the most part. However even educated (on the matter) people can still disapprove on certain lifestyles.
For example I do not like diversity for the sake of diversity. I learned a lot about the LGBTQ community and I still do not like it. I will never protest against it or something like that but I think it is ok for people to say that the do not like certain aspects like that in games.
It does NOT ruin the game or at least if it is done right. As long as everyone is minding their own business and not throw insults for others personal preferences I am fine.
But if someone say "I do not like that Ellie is gay." it is met with "OMG bigot! Go die somewhere! Stupid male gamer this game is not for you!". This is what is disgusting.
At first I did not like it either but now I do not care at all.
So understanding is NOT everything.
@Commander91_YT I've always tried my best, if able, to never fear something that isn't an actual threat to my life or wellbeing.. especially things I do not understand. Only if people would use fear in its correct and/or intended functionalities, it'd be peace love and granola all over the Earth bra.lol I'm being serious tho.. but by far FEAR is the strongest, most common, most pervasive and most perpetuated emotion, in a whole, for almost all of humanity.. but I honestly believe the tides are turning, ever so slowly... That maybe in 30-60 years from now, (hopefully sooner) it'll be nonexistent, and spoke about as we now speak about past Barbarian times... I can't wait for, at least, most of the humans on Earth understanding each other and each other's beliefs. Also, getting along with each other without fear holding back everyone's better emotions.. I know I'm optimistic on this stance, but it sure would be a beautiful Paradise..
Well I did say that a long time ago if you check my history. It's ok though . It's all good.
I'm looking forward to finding out what they do next and I hope I like it.
@Zuljaras I like your point of view and I agree. You don't have to like someone's beliefs or actions to not fear or understand them or where they're coming from. Acceptance is more the keyword here. Disagreeing with one another has literally helped our society grow in so many ways, in science more than most. But they weren't harassing or discrediting even shaming the person they disagreed with. Understanding and acceptance does such a long way and some people have too much fear to even try that ride. I believe peace wins out in the end. By end, I mean far down the road. It takes a long time for someone to change their own nature that was ingrained in them growing up. It might even take Generations of people to get us where we need to be in this hateful world. Really nice comment, it's good that someone can agree and even add to the conversation without saying (You're wrong!)...
@Commander91_YT well said, but sometimes the carrot is better than the stick. Not emphasizing on which one you used but compassion goes a long way. Sometimes it's not even the persons fault but how they were raised and what environment they were raised in. Trust me where I'm from I understand what it's like I have something you don't believe bred into you. We should be understanding and compassionate if we ask
the same from anyone else, by definition, in my belief. But great comment, I believe he/she does need to take a look inward instead of lashing outward..
@ConstructionGuy well said, but sometimes the carrot is better than the stick. Not emphasizing on which one you used in your conversation, but compassion goes a long way. Sometimes it's not even the persons fault but how they were raised and what environment they were raised in that made them the way they are. Trust me, where I'm from, I understand what it's like to have something you don't believe, simply bred into you since before birth. We should be understanding and compassionate if we ask
the same from anyone else, by definition, in my belief. But great comment, I believe he/she does need to take a look inward instead of lashing outward..
Sorry for easy copy & paste answers, but both conversations were nearly identical in their rhetoric speech towards the other person.
Threads like this are great.
It’s a perfect litmus test for who to ignore
Just to be clear, people were saying David Cage stories were 'ham-fisted'. That is how I feel about TLOU2 so it's not a 'message' I feel was needed unless for people who lack empathy to start with.
I'm sure they are hiring, considering their staff has run for the hills and they run their company like a Russian gulag. And they don't pay.. AND the game is so depressing & boring it should come with a Madlib suicide note. ND is starting to really give EA a run for their money, the only thing missing is the lootbox.
To whoever wrote this shill piece, what access are you protecting? You're not making any money, so you're just selling yourself for a free video game?
WARNING Halfway through these comments, the plebs come out.
@TheKLF What a mess of a comment by you!
Oh, and the lootbox, that will probably be present in the multiplayer later, but so what?
@Akurusu Jeez man. You want them to crunch EVEN MORE to get multiplayer ready with the single-player?? They're not releasing it later as some kind of strategy. It's because it wasn't possible to get it done at the same time.
I reckon they're getting straight on to TLoU Part 3.
Naughty Dog should work on a new IP. After that a remake of the first TLOU !
@shyhh Give that to BluePoint games they are the master of remasters 👍
Idk. Admittedly the way they do it is unique but it's a classic theme of good vs evil and asking the question of what is between.
Leaving aside the revenge theme that's been used to the bone since old cowboys movies there are many games trying to make you think of your actions. David Cage games precisely but many others as well.
Its people like you who give us "older folk" (I'm 41) a bad name. It's like your views are from the stone age!! Does it really matter who you play a game as?? Isn't it you who holds the controller? Or do you feel that playing a game as a female will somehow convert you into member of the community that you clearly have issues with.... although, it does seem that you've already been converted into a member... a large throbbing one
That reminds me of a discussion we had at college many, many..many years ago with the author of a short novel. Everyone tended to be sympathetic towards the character because that's the perspective we had from the story but , as I expressed doubts, he told us the character was a ******* haha
@Harrybwah1 in what universe did TLoU tank exactly?
You people are unintentionally funny.
I honestly can’t tell if your being serious or joking since the last of us 2 is one of the most hated games of this year by players
I hope they do something new after the hate they got for the last of us 2 I think it's a good idea they don't do another sequel for that game anytime soon
Some of those comments. 🤦
Must be Americans as we were all in bed in the UK or maybe early risers from Down Under.
The game has flopped? Hmm, no it hasn't. It's a brilliant game, an instant classic and it will still be selling 3-4 years from now on the PS5.
Haters just gotta accept one thing; lots and lots of people really enjoyed this game and it's a big success.
Suck it up, snowflakes!
@Col_McCafferty wow a lot of people enjoyed it so 5 out of 10 people who spent money on the game enjoyed it that’s not a lot if you actually look at player reviews. 5 out of 10 people feel like they wasted there money and your trying to say that the game is good your just like all the big wigs who got the game before the public and gave it a 10/10 and lied to them so they would waste there money
You know a lot of those reviews are fake, right?
As a pure game it's actually brilliant. Maybe some people should open their minds and give it a try as watching playthrough vids doesn't actually do it justice.
Oh and ignore all the YouTubers hating on this game, they're in the main only doing it for clicks and attention because it's the 'in' thing to attempt to rip into this game and tear it to pieces.
I'm sure they'll move onto something else soon, I hope so anyway!
@Col_McCafferty So when the same YouTubers praised God of War, Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Last of Us 1, Uncharted 4 (just to name a few AAA titles) they were doing it for the clicks again?
I am confused?
Hate gets the clicks but praise does not?
How that changed in the last 1-2 years on YouTube?
Did they just became "BIGOTS!!!" only for this game?
@Col_McCafferty Of course they fake why wouldn’t they be when a game gets bad reviews it always something the reviews are fake it’s the players fault for not enjoying the game aliens are real hitler is in Argentina siping a margarita it’s always some crazy excuse because to people like you facts don’t matter you choose feelings over facts just to make yourself thing your right and to feel better about yourself but that’s not how the world works snowflake so you should go back to your safe space and play the last of us 2. You probably like modern art to you would stare at a Blank canvass and think it’s art
@Zuljaras Oh come on, the hate has been building for quite some time ever since the kiss between Ellie and Dina was first shown.
Then came the leaks and everybody had already made up their mind. There's nothing controversial about God of War or Spider-Man, they're just both very well made games with a white straight male as lead.
The first Last of Us does make you play as Ellie at some stage but in the main you're again playing as a white straight male lead. Same with RDR2 and Uncharted 4 of course.
People don't have to like the game but you can't deny that many have jumped on the hate bandwagon.
Well you can deny it but in doing so you're denying a truth.
Anyone that comes out and says that they actually really like this game is accessed of being a Sony shill, of being paid off, of not being genuine and lying to their subscribers and viewers.
I'm sure some genuinely don't like the game but who cares, not sure why their opinion holds any more weight than yours or mine.
@Treark We're the snowflakes?!
Ha, good joke mate. You might want to think that one over.
@Col_McCafferty You are right it does not weight. That is why I wonder why people think that critics opinions matter as they just write about games the do not even play them. Their reviews are so generic that it hurts.
With youtubers you can see how they play the game and react to it.
"Well you can deny it but in doing so you're denying a truth." - this is extremely close minded.
Also "There's nothing controversial about God of War or Spider-Man, they're just both very well made games with a white straight male as lead." - this is actually disgusting. Why do you have to care about the race and gender of the main hero?
People loved Lara Croft, people loved Miles Morales AND most if NOT all are thrilled that he will get his own game on the PS5 (including me).
If "controversial" means the emphasis on the sexual orientation of a character well this is sad as I do not care with who the main character go to bed. It gives absolutely nothing to the story of TLOU2.
Also people do not care about that just the trolls. MOST of those YouTubers that you accused of being on the hate wagon loved Left Behind DLC of TLOU1 where Ellie is revealed to be homosexual.
Come on let's be objective and NOT use buzzwords just to be cool.
@Leroy1985 nope. You have no basis for that assumption. I don’t believe ND have an “agenda like that” - this is one game series (2 games + 1 DLC to put into scope).
Gaming is about many, many different things, and it’s good to have diversity and representation. There’s no “quota system” in place. The fact that Ellie is a lesbian in a game I have enjoyed (and still am as not completed it yet) doesn’t make me any less of the 45 year old man I am, nor do I think “Jesus, another game with a lesbian protagonist - what message ARE they planting here?”
This game features a number of characters of various sexualities and types, some of which you can control; if you’re that offended by this premise, there’s plenty of other games you can play. You’re not forced to play this one.
@Zuljaras Have you even played Part II? Watching play throughs may give you an idea but it's a poor alternative to the real thing. I don't believe it trust all critics but at the same time I'm not quick to dismiss their opinions either.
Haha, just pointing out each of the games you mentioned has a white straight male lead. How on Earth is that disgusting?!
Oh the Left Behind DLC, not talking about any specific YouTubers here but I imagine quite a few people wrote off Ellie's actions as just youthful experimentation and nothing more. Ashley Johnson herself was asked the same, people insisting she wasn't really gay and only experimenting a bit. Look it up if you don't believe me.
@Col_McCafferty "Haha, just pointing out each of the games you mentioned has a white straight male lead. How on Earth is that disgusting?!"
You assume that those games are NOT hated just because they have white, straight male leads. Like that is something wrong and should be avoided for a game to be good.
Let's not turn the gaming industry in Hollywood where everything has to be represented just for the sake of it ok?
So Part one was liked because you play as Joel and Part two is hated because you play as Ellie (when people know she kissed Dina)? Is that really it? All the negativity for the game (or at least 50% of it) comes from that?
Are you really thinking that?
Is that why more people played Assassin's Creed Odyssey as Kasandra and liked her more than Alexios? Because they want "straight, white males" ?
In the end we have to agree to disagree. Some people liked the game, some people didn't. Yes there were trolls but not as much as people were led to believe.
@Commander91_YT yeah erm I'm gay and mixed race dude, so your accusations of bigotry don't work against me. Like I said, Lemming!
@Harrybwah1 tanked? No it didn't.
@Col_McCafferty Your clearly delirious to think that a good game people like games just because the main character is white and straight. People like games because THERE GOOD i ***** loved tomb raider playing as Lara Croft and playing the last of us dlc because there actually good. There’s also another thing they killed off the main character you’ve grown attached to and learned to love. There’s also the bugs in the game and just the poor direction the game takes. 99% of people don’t care what there character is as long as it’s a good game and they don’t shove it down your throat for political reasons people will play it and love it
@Zuljaras Actually more people played as Alexios. I think it was 60% or something like that. I played as Kassandra, of course.
I think much of the negativity comes from something that happens early on and something else later on (which I don't wish to get into coz of spoilers).
It is undeniable though that there has been a lot of backlash due to the sexuality of the main character.
Have you played Part II yourself?
@Treark What political reasons?
Yes some people didn't like the story and they're entitled to their opinion. Doesn't change the fact that a lot of the discourse has been extremely nasty and has attracted a lot of bigots.
It's a brilliant game, technically above the vast majority of other AAA titles and doesn't play it safe. For those reasons and many more it should be applauded.
@Col_McCafferty No. I only watched it. I will wait for a lower price as I really like to world building of the game. As for the story I do not care anymore since I loved the first one.
I am one of those people that were affected by the "something else later on (which I don't wish to get into coz of spoilers)."
I am searching it also second hand in my local online community so in a month or two it will be worth my money.
@Treark Also, SPOILERS dude.
@Col_McCafferty One more thing. Don't you think that some of the backlash is because of this date trailer they posted:
Exactly at the 2:20 mark.
@Zuljaras Okay, well play it and then come back and give us your genuine views.
Maybe once the dust has settled and the hype has died down you'll be in a better position to judge.
Who knows, maybe you might actually enjoy it!
@Col_McCafferty Sorry I could not like the story. Nothing will make me like it and I watched it all. The whole story for me is like the last season of Game of Thrones.
But on the other hand the gameplay, graphics, exploration and collecting stuff really looks amazing. This I will enjoy for sure.
@ Beefy01 I don't care about any of that till they start ramming it in my face. Wanna be gay lesbians he/she I don't care till you start ruining games, already said .
@Leroy1985 "ramming it in your face?" hardly! Have you actually thought about what you've written? Having a person being affectionate to their partner is not "ramming it in your face".
If you can't cope with that, there are other problems to deal with. And no, it's not "ruining games".
ND spent many years with the Uncharted series having Nathan getting frisky with one lady or another. Or any of the other games featuring heterosexual characters who have liaisons or romances etc. I don't see that being an issue, as a gay man, but applying your viewpoint to that scenario, that was also "ramming it in my face".
Have some tolerance and perspective. We're talking about videogames here. Just be nice to people. It's not difficult.
@Col_McCafferty I’m not surprised to see you saying anyone who didn’t give it praise for doing nothing is a hater. Get a grip. I wonder when the PlayStation shills on here are gonna stop and think “maybe they just don’t like the game”. I get a good laugh out of this site.
Sorry ND the days of considering you some of the best devs I wont be buying any product that Neil is a part of. It was fun while it lasted.
@Akurusu " Get a grip"
Feel free to take your own advice. All you do is hate on the game.
@1_W1NG3D_4NG3L sadly this is what the gaming community has become. A joke a ghost of it's former self. Then again just about every community is toxic as hell to. Damn that says alot about humanity as a hole doesn't it.
@InsaneInfernape Also why can't we just accept each other's opinions and move on is it really that damn hard people?
Imagine if people had same reaction everytime it was a straight white dude. Wouldn't be able to enjoy 80% of games.
Gay people and women existing isn't political it reality.
@Akurusu I agree however with the success of the likes of Ratchet and Crash in recent years, I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s made Sony sit up and think a new Sly or Jak would be worth considering. I hope so!
At least we have Sackboy and a new Ratchet on the cards...
@Kafkaesque doesn't that just make you a but too edgy for your own good though?
Disliking crunch is and not being a fan of pacing etc is reasonable but you know that the sort of people calling him cuckman aren't the kind that like gay people all that much and seem to think their very existence in a game is some sort of nefarious agenda.
@Kasabian I call him Cuckman because I see it as appropriate. The guy uses people like myself to screech to the whole world about HIMSELF and how wonderful he is. The guy is a bully and a narcissist using others to draw attention and praise to himself while also shielding his ***** behaviour from critique by just screeching "bigots waaaaa"
@Col_McCafferty Meanwhile Sony is censoring games that the switch isn't.
Why is snowflake mccaff raging all over any comment that he doesn't agree with? Settle down there kid.
@Wormold EEEEWWWWWWWW ***** NO that's boring as *****
@nessisonett ***** yes
@Dodoo uhhhhhh....how about jak and daxter instead
@BANCHO you mean like I said in comment #126?
Are we going to forget the 80% drop in sales for the second week lol??? Days Gone was at 64% and that game had some major bugs
The ground zero level in the last of us part 2 was a fantastic horror set piece so I would love a full on horror game from ND........ maybe set in space
New Ip would be better for them to try and maybe make an sci fi shooter with weird looking aliens and with a great story and awesome fighting mechanics
Omg stfu with pathetic whining waaaah . I said about 10 times I don't mind them being in games or being lead long as it's not forced which it is constantly. So we had to have 2 female leads 3 times in a row for naughty dog, not only that we had to have lesbians, a he/she, lore that talk about sobriety sisters and no man can please a women and all the dirty *****. Oh and the arm wrestle between a women and a man , who knew who was gonna win just because ya know gotta please then femenist, as if they've not gone far enough, If you even try to defend it youre an idiot I can get through about as sentence of yours before i start cringing
idiots think it's because I don't like or want them in games, I don't give 2 ***** till it's forced because of femenist agendas and all that ***** which doesn't belong in games
@Zombie9ers THIS so much, I'd play the heck out of it!
Goonies sequel please!
@Leroy1985 You're such a pathetic human. What difference does it make if you play 10 games in a row where the leads are all female, lesbian, mixed race, whatever. It's just a story, it's not ramming it in your face just because the characters are not like you. Just like if I'm gay and play The Witcher 3, I don't get offended at Triss and Geralt being naked and work myself into a frenzy about heterosexuality being rammed in my face. You're a bigot, factually, despite what your tiny mind and The Quartering are telling you.
@Wormold you're joking right?naughty dog does great game's since the late 90s
@Dodoo We can only hope, but while Neil Cuckmann is in charge I don’t see that happening anytime soon. See, he doesn’t like using the word “fun” to describe games. I couldn’t imagine them spitting in the face of longtime fans & turning Jak into a movie type game with the same tropes as other first party PS exclusives.
@Borachon26 I’ve never seen someone complain about heterosexuality in any media. Just saying.
@Akurusu Kind of my point dude...
@Commander91_YT I didn't say anything about male or female leads. I don't care about the sexuality, sexual orientation, sexual identity any of that crap. What I care about is a good story. Something that brings the Fandom together, not split us apart, arguing on stupid stuff. You are making this about something it's not. That's your fault. That shows where your mind is.
The list goes on an on. All female charters that are loved. Stop pretending these female leads don't exist.
@Medic_Alert Intentional doesn't make it good for a lot of people.
@markanthony10704 shh, the media pulls all the strings to silence the half of the fanbase that's more critical. They're also not acknowledging the game actually doesn't sell well.
"So no multiplayer?"
