It’s official! The Last Of Us will be released in a “remastered” form for PS4!
That was good news, specially for PS4 owners who didn’t get the chance to play The Last Of Us on PS3. It’s also good news for those who played The Last Of Us on PS3 and want to live this amazing adventure one more time on a next-gen console. The Last Of Us was a beautiful unique game that deserves to be on next-gen.
Although this is very good news, some people are upset and I can’t find a reasonable explanation for that. I read some comments and articles about this and some people think that releasing The Last Of Us for PS4 is “a waste of time and money”. They also think that “the game was already great on PS3”.
What? Can’t a game be released again on another console? I know that it already looked great on PS3 but it will definitely look greater on PS4, like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. If you enjoyed The Last Of Us on PS3, then why don’t you let other people enjoy it on PS4?
Anyway, releasing The Last Of Us (A.K.A. one of the greatest games ever!!) for PS4 is a huge step for Sony in this “next-gen battle”.
However, we still want a sequel. Come on, Naughty Dog! You created a great game and you’re still thinking whether you should make a sequel or not?! I’m very happy with this amazingly good news! But I will be even more happy when I hear that Naughty Dog is considering making a sequel.
Anyway, we should thank Naughty Dog and Sony for this because most of us wanted to hear this months ago.
Game movies are usually rated (by the game fans) according to two things:
1- How much different the plot is.
That’s how it always was and always will be. For example, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time movie wasn’t admired by Prince Of Persia fans because of Jake Gyllenhaal (who was totally different from the Prince) and the different plot. Everyone was like “Why call it The Sands Of Time if you’re not going to use the game’s plot”. Not to mention that what Dastan (a.k.a. the Prince) was wearing in the movie was from Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within game. At the end, we got a good movie but a terrible game movie. If you watch it as if it was just a movie you’d like it, but if you watch it as a movie based on Prince Of Persia you’d hate it!
One of the greatest games out there (I didn’t play it but watching the gameplay was enough) is getting its movie soon, this game is The Last Of Us. The Last Of Us has a great plot, great characters and an amazing environment, so the movie should be great, but is the plot going to be the same? YES! Neil Druckmann said that the movie is a game adaptation, in other words, it will be a re-telling to the story of the game. So The Last Of Us passed the plot stage!
Now what remains is the casting, which shouldn’t be difficult because Joel and Ellie from The Last Of Us are very “clear” characters with crystal clear features and ages. If I had the chance to pick the actors, I would pick either Hugh Jackman or Gerard Butler for the role of Joel, as for the role of Ellie, it has to be Ellen Page and nobody else. Although she’s a bit old for the role but her height and features say otherwise. She’s the one for that role!
The Last Of Us will make a great game movie. I expect it to be the highest grossing game movie of all time!
