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

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.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
