Game news The Last of Us Part 1: An animator steps up to defend the project

Since its announcement, we must admit that The Last of Us Part 1, second remake of the original game released in 2013 on PlayStation 3, is in the eye of the storm. Despite its excellence and its status as a cult work, some fans in the Naughty Dog community believe, rightly or wrongly, that the Californian studio could have taken more risks, even if it meant developing a parallel episode of the franchise. Faced with the avalanche of negative comments that appeared on the web, one of the animators decided to step up to defend the project.

The spoiled surprise of the Summer Game Fest

On June 9, Geoff Keighley took advantage of the absence of the E3 show (which will return in 2023 to Los Angeles in the legendary Convention Center) to present his Summer Game Fest. The Last of Us Part I was supposed to be the highlight of the show, but the surprise was spoiled by a leak a few hours before the event. Inevitably, this “pschitt” effect inevitably played in the flood of criticism that followed since the players had already started to let go of this decision by Naughty Dog. Also, when the project (and the price) was announced, it was enough for the community – the most vocal – to fall on the muzzle of the future title of the PlayStation 5 and PC.

Robert Robisson defended The Last of Us Part 1

Animator for the new Naughty Dog project, Robert Robisson wanted to respond to some of the criticism, starting with those who believe that The Last of Us Part 1 is only a cash machine easy for the Santa Monica studio. According to the interested party, the project is in no way a low-level remake allowing Naughty Dog to glean money effortlessly.

“It’s just easy money.”

In fact, it is the most meticulously constructed and elaborate project I have ever seen or participated in in my entire career. The highest level of care and attention to detail possible.

When a Twitter user asks him about the price of the game, he replies:

The price of the game is beyond my control and its value is subjective to each individual. You can decide for yourself whether you want it or not. All I’m saying is that I’m impressed with the work of an amazing group of people on this project. A lot of passion has been put into this project.

This will probably not convince everyone, but we will wait to know more to know all the contours of this game which promises, if we are to believe the person concerned, as a major project at Naughty Dog. .
