According to the Russo brothers, directors of Avengers Endgame and other Marvel movies, The Last of Us 2 is one of the greatest games ever.
The Russo brothers, directors of Avengers Endgame (and other Marvel movies) also had their say about video games in a recent interview, claiming that The Last of Us 2 is “one of the greatest games ever ,” according to both.
Interviewed by the American section of IGN, Anthony and Joe Russo were also questioned about video games, demonstrating a particular fondness for Naughty Dog productions , apparently: first a sequence of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was shown , with Joe who called the game “one of the best action franchises ever”.
Afterwards, they were subjected to the vision of a sequence of The Last of Us 2, the part inside the hospital, in which a certain boss also appears.
Visibly taken by the scenes, Joe again commented extremely positively on the game, calling it “one of the greatest games ever made” and also mentioning that the work related to the shots could be “a page from the Steven Spielberg manual “.
In short, it seems quite clear that the Russian brothers are fans of Naughty Dog’s works and probably the cinematic cut of these falls somewhat in the formation of directors of this caliber, which naturally makes them close to this type of games.
Meanwhile, it has emerged that the TV series is very loyal to the game , according to Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie on the HBO series of The Last of Us.
