The creators of The Last of Us ‘still see flaws’ in their hit title, despite its phenomenal critical and fan acclaim.
The revelation came from co-director Bruce Straley in a recent Game Informer interview. In a video released by the publication, Straley illustrated his perfectionist mindset by saying that although he was “super happy” with the title’s vast number of game of the year awards and the fan response to it, there were still things the developers could have done better.
He stated: “You still see the flaws, you still see the things that you wish you had more time to improve on, and you still wish you could have done something a little differently.”
He added: “I’m super proud of what we’ve done here in the team and everything that we’ve accomplished… but at the same time, there’s another aspect, which is like, it’s not done, or something.”
The developer’s comments came in the context of discussing the never-ending process of improvement, and how Naughty Dog will use lessons learnt during the creation of The Last of Us in the production of their upcoming PS4 exclusive, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
How would you make The Last of Us better? Is it even possible to improve upon a title that received over 200 game of the year awards? Let us know in the comments.
