This game play video from E3 just blew me away. This is the first time I've heard about this game and I must admit when it came on, I thought it was Uncharted. But as the demo went on and my Twitter flew by, I quickly realized ..... this isn't Uncharted. Big clue were all the F-Bombs being dropped. I can't blame them though, if these guys were after me it wouldn't keep it PG at all.
The Last of Us introduces, what Naughty Dog is calling, "Linear Storyline". This explains a portion of the trailer where they show Ellie throwing a brick at an enemy. This is completely AI driven dynamically. So if you aren't in trouble she wouldn't throw the brick, or if you're in another room she might throw something else.
This is one of the main reasons I'm definitely going to pick up this game when it drops sometime in 2013.
