While looking for some relaxation videos in Youtube I eventually found these ones that are about sounds of nature and I thought it would be a great idea to have sounds of nature in TLOU (forests, streams, waves, rivers, birds singing, etc.)
This would add A LOT of inmersion and some relaxation, contrasting with the other violent and tense parts of the game.
Of course, this sounds should only play when we are in a forest scenario or when we are near a lake or even in San Frnaciso haha (If Joel's journey leads to the very end of the West Coast)
I leave some links below so that you may enjoy what I enjoyed.
Forest.- The forest scenario is mostly confirmed given that it was shown in a scene of the VGA 12 TRAILER (When Joel hits a guy with some kind of handcrafted hammer)

Waves.- I imagine waves being heard in a part were Joel and Ellie reach San Franciso and stand near the Golden Gate, it would be awesome.

I hope this is considered as it would make us get very immersed within the game and on top of that it would make sense after 20 years of nature reclaiming what belongs to her.
What do you think?

With the lush and beautiful environments that we've seen so far, I'm sure this game will feature these sounds to their highest potential. I would expect these sounds too, since a big part of this new world ND wants to show off is the world we know being reclaimed by nature. So, walking down streets that we're all used to being loudly populated by cars and people, but now all desolate and quiet, the only sounds left are the sounds of nature. I can't wait to see what they do there
