The lights are on
This month at PAX Prime, Naughty Dog showed off the riveting, behind-closed-doors E3 trailer of The Last of Us. If you weren't at either event, you can now see the full 16-minute demo here. We promise you it was worth the wait.
I only saw the public demo Naughty Dog showed for The Last of Us at E3, so this one was completely new to me, and serves as a stark reminder for why PS3 owners are so excited for the game. While the environmental puzzles look like standard fare, Naughty Dog has done a remarkable job of humanizing Joel and Ellie's enemies, which makes the already visceral combat even more brutal.
I'm still amazed at how dynamic all of the animation seems – we'll have to wait until we get our hands on the game to see just how orchestrated these live demos are, but so far the game is looking great.

This game is looking absolutely fantastic! The gameplay mechanics, graphics, and animations keep impressing me. I wonder what happens when Joel navigates through the flooded abyss of the hotel...
It's a shame I can't get this for xbox, because I would get it for sure. I want to see MOAR
NAUGHTYDOG 2007+= Perfection
The voice work is so good, I already feel like I care about these characters.
It's games like these that are giving me the courage to 'come out' to my non-gamer friends and colleagues.
Holy *** I can't wait for this.
Very Impressive! Love Naughty Dog's work.
This and Bioshock Infinite.... The wait is unbearable
this game just keeps looking beter and better
Incredibly stunning and epic, Naughty Dog continues to astound me as they take the interactive cinema gaming experience to the next level, bug kudos to Naughty Dog. I can't wait to play this.
