Hitting it out of the park with their trailers.

#1 Posted by DarthOrange (4124 posts) -

Anyone else impressed by how well they have been handling trailers for this game? The story trailer just came out and gives you just enough information to get the gist across without leaving the feeling that a set piece was spoiled. Maybe it is the music but this trailer is probably the best of the year. It leaves you wanting more and yet you really don't know what the hell is happening.

It is way better then the Uncharted 3 trailers where it seemed like they showed off a new set piece in every trailer, and then the launch trailer pretty much showed you all the cool moments that happen in the game.  
What do you guys think of the trailers for the Last of Us? Do you think they have been fantastic or poo poo?

All the trailers have been fantastic. It's one of the few games I haven't really followed news on, but I'm super excited to play. The one with them in the truck and the Hank Williams song playing sold me on it.

I'm so looking forward to this game and that isn't something I can say for many games lately.

It's a fantastic new trailer, I'm a little bummed that they showed more of the fungal monster-people, I was hoping other than that announcement trailer they'd keep quiet about that stuff. I think the story stuff in the trailers has been more interesting than any of the gameplay they have shown.

Oh wow, totally didn't see massive story stuff going on, took a completely different direction than I thought it would. Having said that, still not keen on fungus people.

I agree they have been pretty awesome. With this, bioshock, gta and dark souls 2 I dont think I have ever been this hyped before.

I agree in that the trailers for this game have been amazing. I just wish it would come to X-Box 360, and not be a PS3 only exclusive.

I just hope this game will have some decent framerate. Something tells me it's going to be baaaaaaaaaaaad.

It wouldn't sell on Xbox Halo and COD are out already.

I'm just kidding don't flame.

I haven't been keeping up with the game; I don't have a PS3. However, that trailer alone made me want to go out and purchase one just for it. That trailer was fantastic.

Have they been hitting it out of the... trailer park?

That girl's voice sounds a lot older than she looks.

It looks way more interesting than Uncharted, but I'm afraid Naughty Dog's heavy focus on graphics on the PS3 won't be very fruitful in 2013.

Wait a minute..

is Ellie the "cargo" that needs to be smuggled out of the city?

She's totally going to be the "cure" isn't she?

Aw shit, why did I come into this thread.

Possibility but I trust naughty dog to not make it so obvious.

Looks lame like all the other stuff Naughty Dog makes, that people fawn over.

let's hope the PS4 is retrocompatible or has this in its online store. The game looks amazing and way more interesting than any uncharted or god of war game. I'm just not going to buy a 200-300$ console to play 1 game.
