“The Last Of Us Part 2” Is “One Of The Greatest” Games Ever. Say it to the ‘Avengers Endgame’ Directors.
Drake’s Fortune was released in 2007. Naughty dog has a reputation for releasing video games equivalent to big-budget action movies. They moved away from the cartoony platformers of Bandicoot & Jak and Daxter and began to tell human stories using believable characters and the most adrenaline-fuelled action set-pieces.
It’s not surprising that movie industry giants have expressed their appreciation over the years. It’s hard to forget the adorable video of Harrison Ford letting his mind wander as he plays. The series has a new fan, this time a director. A video was made with IGN for The Gray Man. The two were asked to rate chase scenes from video games. The Gray Man has a great chase scene. They were impressed by the chases in Resident Evil Village and its Takes Two. However, they expressed particular admiration for Naughty Dog’s latest releases.
Joe Russo said the following about the famous drive through Madagascar in Uncharted: “I would argue that Uncharted has been one of the most action-oriented gaming franchises ever.” They discussed the legendary Rat King fight, in which Abby faces off against the scariest creature in the franchise’s history in the Last of Us Part 2. He said about the fight, “This is one of The Last of Us…This was a page from Spielberg’s playbook.”
We agree. Both are right on the money, and it’s always a pleasure to see large directors acknowledge the huge cultural impact of gaming.
