The Last of Us Trailer [GO/ER]
December 12th, 2011 by Dan

So this is Naughty Dog’s big new secret? The music at the end echoes some of the banjo musical cues of L4D2 as do the running zombie types. The overrun NYC reminds me of Enslaved. The young girl reminds me of a younger Drake (and also a little Ellen Page) while the old guy is a little Drake meets Bill (from L4D). It’s easy to think it’s derivative and dated now, for sure, but I’m genuinely interested to see how this turns out. Naughty Dog proves in about a minute that they’re excellent at building characters. I wanted to know a bunch more about these two and why they hang out with each other. They seemed cool.

Anyway, it’s supposed to be a survival horror game and (especially if it’s co-op) I think I’m already sold on it. Nice work piquing my interest, Naughty Dog.

    Yeah.. I totally thought it was Ellen Page doing the voice work when I first saw it, but then I looked it up, and it is not. =(

      Would have been a good catch, but I think the girl they got is pretty good too. I can’t wait to see what the mechanics are like for this game.
