The Last of Us sequel a possibility for Naughty Dog

This past year was a huge one for Naughty Dog, a team that broke away from the Uncharted series long enough to produce the startlingly original--and often jarring--The Last of Us for PlayStation 3. The game met with both critical success and strong sales, leaving some wondering: will we see a sequel? In response, Naughty Dog actually seems to be thinking it over.

The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences held its 17th annual D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) awards last night, and as you might expect, The Last of Us ran away with it. It won 10 of the 13 awards it was nominated for, including Game Direction, Story, Animation, Art Direction, and Game of the Year. It crowded the field so much, in fact, that only two other games received more than one award.

Best of 2013: #4 - The Last of Us

Best of 2013: #4 - The Last of Us

Perhaps no other game in 2013 could be as easily pointed to by the mainstream as proof that games are art. The Last of Us enraptured gamers with its cinematic presentation and remarkable performances from Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson. Somehow, Naughty Dog managed to one-up their Uncharted series, raising the bar for what narrative can be in games--with deep, nuanced characters positioned in challenging, morally gray situations.

There are so many moments that help cement TLOU's position as one of the year's best. However, none are as haunting or as lasting as the very last shot of the game. It's chilling not because of what is said, but what isn't. Surely, there could be no more doubts about the legitimacy of digital acting.
