Forums - Sony Discussion - The Last of Us: Did Joel make the right decision? (Spoilers)

Tagged games:

So I finally got around to playing The Last of Us Remastered on PS4. Holy smokes, great game. The campaign started out slow but before long I could not put it down.


I am still thinking about the ending though. After all they went through to bring Ellie to the Fireflies was it right for Joel to do what he did just because he became attached to Ellie. Also the last scene is a rip off of the Godfather.


What do you think?


P.S. : The online multiplayer is awesome as well.

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

I don't think he did the right thing, no. He just didn't want to lose a second daughter.

He did the humane Decision. Not the right decision

He made the decision I would of made, but it was probably not the correct decision for the greater good

he had no reason to continue living besides Ellie, he does the right decision for him not to mankind

In the technical side, no, his decision basically got rid of the small chance of humanity finally being able to suffer no more, and have a much bbetter chance of surviving.

Joel is only human though, and Ellie was like a second daughter to him, especially after everything that happened during the Winter chapter.

A good amount of people would probably say if they were in Joel's position, they would simply let Ellie go for the sake of saving lives, but not a lot of people can say they had their daughter die in their hands, and then find a close person that fills that very empty void.

Ugh, I used to hate TLOU, and thought it was overrated trash. I still think it's overrated, but I appreciate the game much more than I used to.

I would have done the same thing he did.

It's not right or wrong. It's a decision based solely on the will to protect those you care for. Can't subject judgment over such act, regardless of the consequences.
