The Last Of Us 2: what we want to see in a sequel


Move on from Joel and Ellie

The Last of Us was a masterpiece, but Joel and Ellie’s journey is complete. No matter how high the Metacritic score, or how much cash sits in the bank, Naughty Dog should steer clear of creating ‘Joel and Ellie 2’. The journey and the bond between those two characters has been well travelled and it should be left well alone. There’s a place for them in a follow up, obviously, but the first game so completely explored these two’s relationship and motivations that it’s hard to see how Naughty Dog could make them a compelling double act a second time.
