Just wondering....

9 replies 324 views Edited Feb 27, 2013

With Last of Us around the corner I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what the story line will be throughout the whole game?

( Interested to see what the community thinks up )

I like to think that it's just about Joel bringing Ellie to the Fireflies (it's fireflies, right?) and along the way they develop a father-daughter relationship. By the end of the game, Ellie would rather stay with Joel than go with the Fireflies.

 

Of course there's all the action in between, and the developing of their relationship, but I think that'll be it. But it is ND, anything can happen.

^ The Fireflies are an underground resistance group who have tasked Joel with smuggling Ellie out of the quarantine zone. Their reasons for wanting Ellie are unknown at this point.

Thanks for the reply. Btw, I guess I sound kinda dumb asking this, but where do you get all that info? I've seen pretty much all the trailers and demos and haven't heard a word about them...

Just keep up to date with gaming events where The Last of Us will be featured and be sure to read as many articles as you can and watch all the interviews. The Fireflies were first mentioned at the latest hands on demo press event. Although it appears that the fireflies insignia is also shown in the VGA trailer. Ya know, the "RISE" spraypaint behind the people getting manhandled by the military as Joel walks by.

It will no doubt be Joel and Ellie's relationship and the Father Daughter aspect to it. We know Joel has a past of being a violent man, things he regrets, moments he can't forget like killing family members or the innocent victims of the virus. I feel as though at the end of the game, Joel will die, with Ellie watching obviously distraught as the only thing about Joel she knew was the fatherly figure he was to her. She'd be saying things about how he doesn't deserve to die and what a great man he was, whilst Joel on the other hand would be dying satisfyed and literally paying for his sins, as he successfuly fulfilled his friends wish and redeemed himself in the process

I hope Joel doesn't die.

 

[WALKING DEAD: THE GAME SPOILERS AHEAD]

 

After playing The Walking Dead, I don't think I could go through seeing another girl lose her father-figure. Makes me cry too much :C
