I don't see why The Last of Us is somehow a bad place to seek inspiration. Santa Monica clearly wanted to do something different from what they did previously with God of War, so looking for inspiration from another similar series would have been pointless.

I feel Sony is essentially making all their action games very similar.

God of War plays more like Dark Souls than the Last of Us.  The only thing it has in common with TLoU is the over the shoulder camera and a child companion.


Uncharted is a fast paced 3rd person shooter during action sequences...nothing like GoW.


Infamous SS is a fast paced sandbox.


Horizon Zero Dawn is more comparible to BotW than any other Sony game, and even then it is still unique.


Knack 2 is an action 3D platformer.


I mean come on. are you really trying to say Sony makes their games the same?  That would be MS, who pretty much seems to cancel anything that is different from their usual formula.  I am suprised Sea of Thieves made it, and despite the low scores, it is the one XBox exclusive to interest me since Sunset Overdrive.


But I digress...


God of War needed to evolve, Acension proved that.  SSM did an amazing job with this sequel/reboot and I do not agree with most points made by this guy.  While you cannot please everyone, the incredible reception of the game is proof that they made the right decision to change the focus and mix it up.
