That Crytek game looks good, but I would says TLOU looks more like Enslaved: Odyssee to the West than the Crytek one.

Crytek rocks! They actually make good gameplay (with exception of CRysis 2) not QTE movies.

Oh c'mon. Crysis 2 isn't even a bad game. If Dragon Age 2 can considered to not be a bad game but merely lazy...surely Crysis 2 is far from it. If it were any other fps, it would have been good, but it gets the 'sux' stigma just because it wasn't what Crysis 1 was.

Ideas mean squat. You see not even a third of games that make it to prototype stages. You see barely anything about games that never made it out of pre-production.

But it takes a god tier developer like Naughty Gods to execute it. Only available on PS3. Thank you Sony *and* ND.

Crytek should have remained a (PC exclusive) developer.

I'm pretty sure Crytek went to ND to tell them that they were going to cancel a zombie game and that they could use their idea. Or maybe ND had some spies at Crytek.... :roll:

Yeah it was posted a while ago and it may have some part of it but I don't think it really matters.

Ok.

I'm sure plenty of developers come up with somewhat similar ideas or concepts. But from what the link suggests, it doesn't sound like The Last of Us at all really.

Good thing a good developer made something out of the idea instead.

No offence my dude, but god damn remove the stick from your ass. Is it really that necessary to get offended at every negative thing said about Sony? :roll:

I mean, yesterday you threw a b*tch fit at Memes, while at the same time defending Eddie Vedder:|

Every god damned thread, all you do is cry over what someone is saying about Sony. You dont HAVE to give a shyt.

*sigh The "QTE" events stupid argument again... Uncharted rarely have QTE. Calling them QTE movies is the 1st step to let us know you havent played the games

If anything Crysis 2 had more or less the same amount of QTE than Uncharted games. Remember? Pulling up from an edge? Turning the fibrillator on? yeah...

Reading comprehension? The guy clearly stated that he didn't like Crysis 2.

The idea isn't very original, I assumed the inspiration came from The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

I don't think anyone is excited about TLOU because of its setting, its the production values that makes it stand out.

Yeah..so sad! If Crytek were to make it it would probably be a sandbox survival game as evident from the concept art. It's a shame Crytek didn't go ahead with it.

He's a cow. And since cow never had a game with good gameplay and graphics, he hates Crytek for having both.

No it didn't, it had nothing to do with a cancelled Crytek game. The inspiration came from Planet Earth, a BBC program which shows how Ants get affected by the cordyceps fungus which turns them into brain dead plants which kills any other Ants that gets close to the one carrying the fungus (hence the plant zombies) Quick video below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuKjBIBBAL8
