2014 Naughty Dog GDC Talks and The Last of Us Accolades

Eric Monacelli's Avatar + Posted by Eric Monacelli on Mar 14, 2014 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

As we did in 2012, we’ll have a large pack of Dogs giving talks at GDC 2014. We just wrapped up The Last of Us: Left Behind to universal critical acclaim. It currently has a score of 89 on Metacritic, making it the highest rated PS3 downloadable content ever. We also recently received five BAFTA awards, including the coveted Best Game in 2014, for our work on The Last of Us.

BAFTA

We’re now heading to GDC to talk about some of the techniques and process that went into making The Last of Us, which has now hit over six million copies sold worldwide, as well as what made Left Behind, our first ever downloadable, single player story chapter, so unique.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the making of this masterpiece. I’ve been gaming for 35 years and TLOU is, hands down, the best gaming experience I’ve had. Kudos!

PLEASE give us a TLOU Definitive Edition for PS4 with stereoscopic 3D support! Uncharted 3 was the best 3D the PS3 had ever seen. ND knows how to do 3D justice better anyone, yet your best game yet dropped it.

I’d also love to see more Tess! she played such a big role in Joel’s life shaping the battered and reformed character we see in the game. She’s the only person Joel cared about before Ellie and considering how strong of a bond he forms with Ellie in such a short time, it only makes his life with Tess even more intriguing. Besides, there’s 20 YEARS of their lives for you to refer back to, it’s ripe for potential DLC.

Lastly, this game seriously needs a co-op mode! Even a simple wave-based hoard mode against AI survivors or infected would be amazing. This game has such brutal, visceral combat but we rarely had a chance to make the most of it. A hoard mode would definitely satiate my bloodlust.

Why is this crap “game” so praised? Is it praised for its crappy casual QTE linearity? Or is it praised for its crap B rated storyline that copies just about every zombie story and game in existence? Or is it praised for its crap “gameplay”?

Oh wait, the casuals praise it for its graphics, that’s right. How could I forget that?

+ TeamGreen615 on March 15th, 2014 at 2:36 am said:

@ neuropunk The ESRB is rated M 17+. It’s not Naughty Dog’s fault if this game scared you or gave you nightmares. Pay closer attention next time so you will select a more appropriate game for your age.

One of the best games I’ve ever played, no doubt. And Left Behind was amazing DLC. So awesome to see the commercial success as well, 6 million copies for a new IP is insane!

Now… we all want to see 2 things:

1. Last of Us re-mastered for PS4

2. A sequel on PS4

The Last of Us give me nightmares, WHAT?! IT’S NOT EVEN SCARY WHATSOEVER! Not even one part in it is scary. if you want scary, son, try Fatal Frame.

Anyhow, why are you casuals and your linear interactive movies ruining video games so much? Go play your Angry Birds. I miss back when games focused on gameplay and exploration instead of linear one and done interactive movies.

Also, why are your games so linear? Are you westerners so F’n stupid that you are unable to navigate maps and such? Why no exploration in western games? Hell, Uncharted is a series about an explorer, yet YOU DON’T EVEN GET TO EXPLORE SINCE THE LEVELS ARE SO DAMNED LINEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other devs take note, TLoU Left Behind sets the bar for story DLC, gives more of what you love with a twist, while simultaneously filling some of the story you knew and shedding light on story you didn’t. It was perfect. Made me positive where before I was pretty sure that The Last of Us is one of the best games I’ve ever played. Thank you.
