You Are Not Prepared For The Last Of Us' 'Alternate' Ending

#1 Edited by jimmyfenix (3753 posts) -

So this "Alternate" Ending was pretty different.

I wish they made this ending at the end of new game plus to just mess with the player. Kudos to Neil Druckmann for this Absurd ending.

Holy shit. I saw this talk of an alternate ending floating around. I thought the original ending was dark. I don't know if my fragile emotions could've handled that.

You are right. I was not prepared for that ending....

I'm hard to surprise these days but that was unexpected.

That was pretty amazing. Glad they kept straight faces during that too.

Oh my fucking god that was amazing, they both have a decent set of pipes on them as well, especially the actor playing marlene.

Should have been the real ending.

The Last of Us- the musical.

Kudos to the guy Troy is holding for not even cracking a smile.

Troy vocalizing the drum beats got me. An incredible sequence.

As great as Troy is in that scene (and he is GREAT), he's still not the voice of the Third Street Saints Boss. Not to me, dammit.

That was pretty funny.

Holy shit that was incredible.

That's pretty awesome. Almost can't believe the whole thing is actually improvised. But it's very enjoyable either way.

That was amazing.

Fuck...GoTY in my alternate universe.

#28 Posted by jking47 (1251 posts) -

Holy shit, enjoyed that a lot more than I thought I would. Also did not see it coming.

#29 Posted by Coafi (1494 posts) -

That was brilliant, I loved the part when Troy started to improvise the music as well.

I kind of wish they went with this! I think I would have probably dropped my controller and my jaw would be on the floor. It would also be a ton of fun to see all the rage on the internet, haha.

#31 Posted by Nightriff (5658 posts) -

This was fantastic and why Troy is my favorite VA, how he just went with it and stole the scene. Amazing!

#32 Posted by OllyOxenFree (5007 posts) -

Gimme dat alternate ending DLC. I'd buy that for a dollar!

@truthtellah: do you know what video that's from? Kind of want to see what that was in reaction to

I wouldn't mind a video game musical...

I greatly dislike how both ridiculously talented and handsome Troy Baker is... But then considering the origin of the phrase ''having a face for radio'', there's ironically enough a lot of good looking voice actors and actresses out there.

Anywhoo, awesome. Naughty Dog would be a legitimately great choice to try and develop a video game musical! Once More With Feeling - The Last of Us Edition!

That would be Robin Atkin Downes. Guy's mad professional.

Holy shit. I've read an interview about it, but I figured it would be like two lines, not a full goddamn scene of them improvising and hamming it up like there's no tomorrow.

That DLC? I want the most pivotal scenes of TLoU played out like a rhythm game musical now.

It's pretty telling that one of my favorite endings of all time was started by improvising. That's pretty amazing.

I... I was not prepared for that.

Fucking loved it though :D
