    Awesome. Zero Dawn and TLOU are the best stories I’ve seen in a video game.

    for anyone that's played the game and read The Passage - are they super similar stories?

    This is the only proper way to spoil yourself.

    it has an incredibly playable low difficulty option as well that would allow anyone to just absorb the narrative

    hmmm they seem to share some similarities (the books, not the tv show based on the books).

    but regardless, i'm excited based on everyone else's enthusiasm.

    Just about every single voice cast in TLOU was absolute perfection, they need to nail EVERYONE for the fan base to not riot on them.

    No she isn't, 10 years ago maybe you could pull it off but you can't cast a 33 year old Ellen Page to play a 13 year old girl.

    That’s Kaitlyn Dever. She was in the movie Booksmart and she is awesome. She’s 23 but she can definitely pull of a teenage girl. There’s also some things thematically wrt Ellie that may not work with an actual 13-15 yo girl

    Wasn't Bill already designed to look like his voice actor? seems like that'd be the most seamless transition casting.

    Have never seen or heard of the game and don't know the story line, but just listening to the chatter in here, I will definitely tune in. Wondering if I should go in blind, or read about the game?

    Reading about it doesn't do it justice, if you can't play it, watch a Lets Play series of it from youtube or twitch.

    If you don’t actually PLAY the game I’d suggest go in blind. A spoiler free synapses wouldn’t hurt but anyone itt that played the game could give that.

    Maybe because of the Hell on Wheels accent, but this was my first thought for Joel.

    This story is sooo much more than zombies.

    I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that the game is one of the best narrative experiences of my life across all platforms. It’s truly special and the fact it’s gonna be adapted as a TV series on HBO is perfection

    I feel like Josh Brolin is the obvious answer for Joel.

    This is who I always pictured in my head when I thought about a potential movie. Great actor, right age, has the look, can do a southern accent.

    So fucking excited this is getting the HBO treatment

    If the idea is to run the show 2-3 seasons then I think Devers is perfect. If they go any further they might wanna go younger. I’ve seen a few people mentioning the girl from Logan as a good candidate

    One of the top ones. I prefer Mass Effect and love that universe. Last of Us probably better story telling, but I love the Mass Effect universe and the history of it.

    Apparently a disgruntled employee leaked the entire plot of the 2nd game along with cutscenes and people are freaking out. It's worse than GOT season 8 from what I've seen. Haven't seen any of the spoilers but the game is on the brink unfortunately
