Re: Drake is Joel?

I hope not. Of course, I do not have scientific evidence to be able to yell you that it is absolutely not, but I can only hope that it absolutey is not. I also extremely doubt that ND would even link these two games together, story wise, other than minor easter eggs for laughs and nostalgia.

I wouldn't mind. As long as his past wasn't really mentioned and none of the old characters or traits he had from Uncharted returned. Obviously having everyone he knew die and the world enter an apocalypse would change him though. Make him much more serious. So I could see it happening.

Nope.

ND have stated that this game does not take place in the same 'universe' as Uncharted.

Also, they have different names. One is called Nathan. The other is called Joel. Nathan. Joel. Nathan. Joel. Try saying them out loud. They are very different.

Not likely.

Naughty dog is better than that, I'd bet you they are done with drake and will pass it off to others like they already did with the vita game. Naughty dog has a history of doing 3 games in a series then doing one terrible kart racer of the game and moving on to their next IP. So unless they are secretly working on a Uncharted Super Drift Special I'm thinking that Last of Us will be the first of a new trilogy of games.

"Who dragged you to see it?"

Interesting theory. Personally, I don't think it's the case, but it's a fascinating thought and it would be cool if it turned out to be that.

Imagine something like Joel saying "My name... is Drake" END GAME.

Props to you

And by the time you're done reading this, you'll realize that this is just my sig

 Uwotm8, CTR was amazing and JAK X was decent. And IIRC Naughty Dog stated this game will be a game on it's own without a sequel although I'm not completely if this is true or not. I'm 90% sure Naughty Dog's next game will be Uncharted 4 on the PS4.

Well I'm just basing my theory on their history. Personally I was let down a lot from Uncharted3 it was nothing compared to 2. I think the story has run its course and I'm so glad they are making a new IP. We don't get as many original non sequels as in the old days so I'm very psyched for Last of Us
