    This game looks amazing! While not my type of music that was a really good song choice for the trailer.

  • So glad I preordered this.

    … And I don’t preorder often!

    • sunK1D

      What’s the point of pre-ordering a game nowadays? Unless it’s a limited edition which haven’t been announced for this yet…

      • $30632660

        Preordering is just like Layaways, you can pay a small fee first (usually 5 bucks at gamestop) and then pay as much as you want until the game comes out.

      • Good point. But for once, there was a good reason to do so.

        During E3, there was a special pre-order sale at Best Buy/Future Shop. It’s either buy 4 games, get the last one free or 20% off all of them. So a couple friends and I got together a pre-ordered a couple games.

         I do it to support devs/games/series that I like.  Waiting for sales or cheaper deals shows a lack of demand and thus in the future, retailers order less product.

  • Shadowman

    This game is to awesome and music choice for this trailer is really a nice choice.

    The enemies are vicious.. love the sense of desperation.. Troy Baker’s cool as always, so he’s Joel and will be in Bioshock Infinite too.. still need to finish Uncharted 3 *.*..

  • Definitely my most anticipated game of 2013.

  • $30632660

    What is that song? It’s extremely catchy.I hope there are no quicktime events because I cannot stand those.

    • Hank Williams “Alone And Forsaken”

  • Solomon_Kano

    Incredible. Troy Baker’s really great at his craft, because I’d never have thought he could do a voice like Joel’s. Then again, he also did Two Face so…

    In any case, I can’t wait for this game. Naughty Dog’s been my favorite Sony dev ever since Crash Bandicoot, and they just get better and better with every game.

    • wh– oh, CRAP! Joel is Yuri Lowell?! NOW I CAN’T UN-HEAR IT!!!

  • We need to start calling “video games” something else.

  • Sho Zero

    Whenever i see The Last of Us i think of it as a movie instead of a game…not alot of gameplay in these trailers. Still looks amazing though…this is what “I Am Alive” should have been. I love Naughty Dog.

  • Its a “ZB’ apocalypse of sorts but all this while the opponents are ALL fellow humans…. Why everyone goes “SNAP” when stuff lk this happens??? You’d think all the commotion would drive the “ZB” out….

    And those are some RLY GOOD enemy AI… 

  • LOL I can still hear Snow.
