Naughty Dog Thanks Famitsu for “Especially Cool” Awards for The Last of Us

by on May 24, 2014 7:11 AM 40

Naughty Dog received a truckload of awards for The Last of Us, and the latest were the Special Rookie Award and the Outstanding Performance Award given by the prominent Japanese magazine Famitsu.

Today Sony Computer Entertainment released a video starring Naughty Dog game designer Anthony Newmann as he delivers a brief message of thanks, defining the awards received “especially cool” due to the fact they come from the legendary magazine.

It is indeed not too common for a western game to be recognized by Famitsu, even if this time around The Last of Us had to share the honor with Grand Theft Auto V.

    Naughty Dog really deserve all these awards. It’s one of a few game studios which never disappointed me. Keep on going, naughty dog!

  • Delsin Rowe

    Best game that ever created !
    well done naughty dog, you are the best in the business.
    and please shows us something mind blowing At E3

    • ipot_04

      Uncharted 4 seems good enough.

  • Gamingboy 321

    ND is the best, It is factual.

    • SkinnyAssGamer

      of course it is its Naughty Dog,
      1) Crash Bandicoot
      2) Jak & Daxter
      3) Uncharted
      4) The Last Of Us
      Speaking of where are our sequels to Jak & Daxter and Crash Bandicoot Naughty Dog? those are much needed sequels?

      • Gamingboy 321

        Uncharted defined gaming for me I couldn’t play crash because I started gaming in 2009 :(

        • SkinnyAssGamer

          go out to ebay, or whatever. Buy a PS1 and Crash Bandicoot and then you get to experience Crash on a great system. or go to the PSN Store and buy it for like $5.99 i believe? though i don’t remember. plus if you buy a PS1 you can get a lot more games then just Crash. and probably cheaper.

          • Gamingboy 321

            I will definitely digitally download all crash games ! The country I live in doesn’t sell PS1′s no more.

          • SkinnyAssGamer

            thats why you go to ebay and you could buy them from anywhere?

          • Negi Springfield

            Emulators are also another option..

  • SkinnyAssGamer

    Naughy Dog and Sony just a few questions?

    When are you going to do another Crash Bandictoot?

    When are you going to do another Crash Bandictoot?

    When are you going to do another Crash Bandictoot?

    Please PlayStation Fans really want another Crash Bandicoot, and it would give the younger generation a TRUE Mascot to look up to (even though i kind of say Spyro is the mascot or WAS before those awful sequels but the Trilogy was the best of Spyro) Anyway yeah it would give younger generations a TRUE mascot to look up to. Please Sony do it. Do it for the PlayStation Fans. and for the children, everyday a child dies when we don’t get Crash Bandicoot. #Sony2014 #BringBackCrashBandicoot

    • Delsin Rowe

      someone is really love crash :D
      i hear you body, but we should pray that sony bought this ip from activision again.

      • SkinnyAssGamer

        their was a rumor like months ago about it. and then went quiet don’t know if that means it didn’t happen or Sony is saving it for E3.

      • BlackestNight63

        That would imply that Activision are cool enough to let that IP go for x amount of money to Sony, and I don’t see that happening.

    • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

      Did Sony buy back the IP? I know it seemed to be hinted a couple of times that it might be coming but I don’t recall them getting the IP back unless they did it secretly.

    • L__S

      As much as I loved Crash Bandicoot (especially the third part), I think today Crash wouldn’t be the same feeling as it was years ago. Maybe it’s better not to develop a new game and keep Crash with best thoughts in mind than bring a new game which doesn’t give us the same feeling.

    • neko working

      Well, if they ever have urge to obliterate Mario Kart 8, they could just build Crash Team Racing: Next Gen ;)

  • YuriFan

    The game doesn’t deserve all of those rewards, its just a movie game.

    • SkinnyAssGamer

      another fail Xbot troll have fun watching on the sidelines *Flags For Trolling*

    • Porcu Peth

      Translation: “I wish the 360 had gotten a game of the generation” too

      • YuriFan

        Why would I want a boring game like this?

        • Negi Springfield

          I pity you , If you haven`t played this game.

        • They Call Me Senpai

          Thinking it’s boring is proof that you haven’t played it.

    • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

      A movie game? I am the one that runs around in the environment. I am the one that sneaks up on clickers and or avoids them. I am the one that shoots and reloads. I am the one that makes weapons. I don’t know what movie your playing but I played The Last of Us. It’s what we call a game.

      • YuriFan

        a game with boring gameplay.

        • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

          LMAO. Say what you want, your in the minority. Your just one random person on a board. To actually say it is boring, you would have to play the game in the first place and not be a mindless Xbox drone.

        • They Call Me Senpai

          The Last of Us has terrific gameplay, but you’ve never had the honor of playing it so you wouldn’t know.

    • They Call Me Senpai

      A movie game with some of the best gameplay, music and story in recent years.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Even if it was only a movie it would have been a better game than any Xbox game of the past, present or future. HA!

    • MTM2

      Not digging Quantum Break then either, eh?

      • YuriFan

        That game is going to be awesome, unlike last of shit.

        • Xtreme Derp

          Evil.

    • You are flat out wrong

      Nah, mate. Ryse is a movie game. :)

      • The Gaming Alcoholic

        That might be a bit of an overstatement for Ryse.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Everyone should trust a deranged microsoft fanboy’s opinion on Sony 1st party games.

  • The Real Rick Grimes

    I’ve been playing games for 18 years and The Last of Us is easily the best game I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. I truly hope for a sequel at some point, the world and characters are unrivaled.

  • Mikail

    Well… they deserve the reward

  • The Gaming Alcoholic

    The Last of Us was good. Can’t argue with the results here one bit.

  • PlayMatt

    he’s hot!

  • PhantomVash808

    Well deserved.
