The Last of Us Part 1 is the remake of The Last of Us. I am not sure if they will make changes to the plot. The Original won Game of the Year when it got released for PS3, and it was successful enough to spawn a Sequel. Most remakes change the character models, but Joel and Ellie still look the same. They still wear the same outfit from the original. They should have given them different outfits and made their classic costumes Unlockables because, at this moment, this remake felt like a mere remaster. The Last of us part 1 is built from the ground up.
So even if Joel and Ellie look the same, these are all new models. If there are changes I want to see, it would be more character development for the minor characters. Give them more side stories since we already know Joel and Ellie’s story. Maybe they can add new content about Abby so that the new fans would be ready for the Event of the polarizing sequel.
The Last of Us Part 1 remake.
Back in 2018, It was announced that the first game sold over 17 million copies. That success triggered Hollywood interest as Many movie producers attempted to make a movie adaptation. Still, in the end, HBO Max won the deal and made an upcoming TV series starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie. Maybe the remake should have used the Likeness of the TV actors for the remake. So they will look distinct from the original. I will give this remake a chance but at this moment. At this moment, though, it felt like the 90s remake of Psycho. A-Frame by Frame remake because it has no difference from the original aside from improvements in graphics. Let’s wait and see what Naughty Dog has in store for us on this remake.
