I'm so stoked about this. One of the best video game story modes ever to me
This makes me forget all about how horrible this world is
Bruh this is gonna be the greatest thing ever this thread should be 9 fucking pages already of nerds replying with OMG
Craig Mazin was lead writer and producer for Chernobyl. This is gonna be so good
I'm definitely in with this news.
Never played the game. Will it be similar to The Walking Dead only not awful?
They need to nail the casting of Ellie. Extremely important
A story that focuses in so much on tension being adapted by a guy who may have put out the most tension filled piece of television I’ve ever seen.
Definitely different than Walking Dead. It's not your typical Zombies. It's a fungal virus or something and there is different types of infected people. Runners, Stalkers, Clickers, and Bloaters and there will be a heavy emphasis on a militia called the fireflies who resist against the military who basically keep the last of humanity in big quarantined zones and outposts
I can’t wait for people who have never played the game to experience it.
Very cautiously optimistic
one of the few games that can work as a movie, and tv show is definitely the way to go to develop Joel and Ellie’s relationship
They absolutely have to nail the casting of Joel and Ellie
a rare moment of lucidity from our dear Ser Trusty
I also especially can’t wait for dads who’ve never played the game to experience it.
that would be me as well
Easily the best story in a video game ever.
What about when Aeris saved the planet on Final Fantasy 7
Last of Us and Horizon Zero Dawn have always been two games I wanted adapted to TV
I nominate Paul Dano to play David
HZD was excellent too. IMO it's definitely the better video game but I think TLOU edges it out in story. But it's hard to make me care about the story in a game and both of those did it.
Bioshock 1 and Infinite were great stories too but I'm not sure they translate to TV well.
The fact that Mazin seems to be a fanboy has me that much more excited. If he has a passion for it then I think it is in good hands
Hugh Jackman would be a good fit as Joel and it'd help bring in viewers
gerard butler and ellen paige already look exactly like them
in all seriousness i dont speak russian so its a little disappointing to hear it will be like Chernobyl
Holy shit this is going to be amazing, can't wait. This was truly an amazing game that felt more like a movie
gerard butler is a terrible actor
Yeah Wu and Ellen Page is 40 what’s your point
she’s 33 you male chauvinist pig
I have women friends on Facebook
It's easily the best game I've ever played and buddy I've played a lot of video games
i, for one, think they should avoid joel and ellie entirely
Joel should def be played by Dylan McDermott
Good god he’s handsome
Not a good take
i bet $1 it happens
It’s past lunch so he’s probably on claw #8
i could see pre ellie joel
or pre joel ellie
but their storyline together seems like it should be kept to the games
i didnt even wake up until 2
Ok, claw #3
Id say that storyline and their relationship is what made it such a compelling video game and made it stand head and shoulders above the rest.
he’d be good as David
Yeah he would. Equally capable of being charming and sinister
Spoiler for people who haven’t played the game
for Joel my primary focus is someone who can pull off the devastating prologue as well as the parallel “baby girl” moment with Ellie
Would be a great choice and hes already done a ton of work with HBO so it could definitely happen.
He should be busy working on The Stand series
