To commemorate the initial reveal of The Last Of Us Part II, Naughty Dog has published a video filled with reactions to the original trailer. More than 30 clips from reactions play over the reveal at PSX 2016. You can watch the reaction down below.

The anniversary video goes through the entire reveal at PSX 2016 with the reactions playing alongside it. Fans cry, cheer, clap, and scream their way through the near five-minute reveal trailer showing off Ellie singing and threatening to kill a whole bunch of people. At PSX 2016 during a panel, Neil Druckmann said that the sequel would be a story about vengeance.

Reactions from over 30 videos are pulled together in this compilation. It’s either an effect that’ll pull you into the hype of that moment or make you chuckle at how hyped Naughty Dog fans can get. Little did those fans know that the game would still be quite a ways off 2-years later.


Saw this earlier on YouTube and N4G, thought I'd post it since it's a high profile game.
Some of the reactions are pretty much spot on for me in that moment others are emotionless haha...enjoy.

It was good, but not as exciting as FF7 remake or Shenmue 3 because we didn't even know they were being made, or KH3 because it took freaking forever for them to stop making those spinoff KH games.

We were confident that TLOU2 was going to be coming at some point.

I don’t understand. The game was expected. What’s the point of a trailer like this? I’ve really only seen reaction videos for KIngdom Hearts because it was at least a long waited game and people would always hope the next title was 3. Just a bunch of geeks geekin here.

Such a lame effort to produce a reaction compilation video that have been done by other youtube creators.

Another cringy pretentious video from sony soy boy developers. I don't think I have ever cringed that hard in my life. I literally got that goosbumps / shake feeling you get when you get second hand embarrassment from watching cringe compilations.

Cory Barlog and Neil Cuckman should join Dice and make a ultimate SJW game featuring pink haired lesbians saving the planet from a robotic evil Donald Trump.

TLOU Part II is my most anticipated title, however I find this video totally pointless and it feels more like they're to fill the gap of the lack of any news regarding the title, I hope we get to see something at Games awards.

Yep, that video was pretty cringy.

I wish ND would make something other than a TPS. I wonder if they're even capable?

Sure, but it's always great to make one of the most anticipated games of the generation. Online multiplayer is something fans of the series will be waiting for, too.

I kind of wish this game was about the big lady with the hammer instead of Ellie. I think Ellie and Joel's story is pretty much done.

Well, he isn't wrong though because of recent sony output is nothing but SJW pandering heaven.
They are giving the two of you nightmares and keeping your butthurt on fire, that's all what matters

I think you should tell your mommy about these SJW bogeymen

I haven't played Spider Man but I don't remember any part of God of War being "SJW pandering" or is everything and anything considered "SJW pandering" theses days?

Well, he's known to troll Sony threads, so nothing should be too surprising. Reaction videos are very popular and it should be obvious based on how many reactions of TLOU Part II trailer they were able to find across social media.

Some people consider the older more mature version of Kratos as him being neutered or a cuck or some such nonsense.

I am quick to point out any sort of seedy influences in my media, but in the case of God of War it seems like pure stupidity.

Perhaps they should have shown new footage instead.

Videos like this do nothing for me. Look how excited they were, hopefully they are excited again to watch themselves react to the stuff we already showed them.

Reactionception.

I'm getting sick of all these "controversy and SJW" that's filled neogaf lately to the point of disgust.

Yeah, if people enjoy ND's output that's fine, I'm glad they enjoy it. Personally, I'm just sick of ND doing the same thing all the time.

I mean yes i was excited too, but i hate seeing streamers reactions. Not to sound cliche but its fucking cringe fest. If the camera was not on you know they would juat prob smile at the announcement.

But since they are watched all this BS fakery, almost gonna cry,screaming. Its retarded. Its the same when someone types "LOL" but in reality they are sitting at the computer desk without a single emotion.

I do like to see for example an E3 reaction of a 1000 people, like you get goosebumps especially if it was totally kept in secret until the reveal. But this individual attention seekers...you know, squeeze some garlic in those eyes for extra views and subs.

Yeah, all these YT reactions reek of being fake and overreactions.

The only reaction I liked was that guy standing up during the Sony E3 conference when they announce Shenmue 3:


Generally these live conference reactions are the ones where people don't know they are being filmed and act naturally to the announcement.

I was actually referring to Cory Barlogs twitter. I had to block the clown on twitter because every second post of his was either hating on Trump, posting about trans equality, how masculinity is evil or some gender fluid fuckory. Not to mention he is actively on Era so that kind of speaks volumes.

Can we just have one developer out there who isn't some trump hating sjw? Or is the industry completely fucked?

I wonder if he has added another rainbow flag next to his name, he already has 3.

edit: Yes I am triggered. I absolutely despise SJW's. They have fucked up almost every god damn industry they have put their dirty paws on. Movies, gaming , comics and god knows what else. They are a parasite and a cancer to society. So sue me if I offend some snowflakes.

I mean, it happens dude. Not everyone is going to have the same outlook on everything. You either learn to live with it or just block out the noise.

I´m actually disgusted by the level of violence in The Last of Us 2. The sequence they showed at E3 was too much and too graphic. I think much of the violence these days are getting too realistic. It´s off putting. Maybe I have gone soft but I´m not too eager to endorse a company that takes pride in graphic executions.

But weren't you filled with joy finally seeing women take center stage in an AAA game? :lollipop_confounded::lollipop_confounded::lollipop_confounded:

I don´t have any problem with women having lead roles in games. Which gender I play as has no bearing if I will enjoy the game or not. It´s the content within that matters, and the content in TLoU2 seems to be focusing heavily on nasty and gory violence, which I´m not to keen on taking part of. Hopefully it´s leveled out by good storytelling, character development and atmosphere. But I won´t lie when I say that it bothers me that Naughty Dog revels so much in violence, it´s almost as if they´re getting off by it.

The content is no different from past video games, it's just graphical fidelity. Manhunt is 14 years old. Soldier of Fortune is 18 years old. I don't see how you can be disgusted at developers for their games having good graphics. Plus, y'know, it's a game. You can see real death and gore on Facebook just by scrolling down.

I don’t follow or even care for anyone’s social media. I enjoy the game for what they are. Simple as that. Even Yoko Taro my favourite developer, I don’t really follow his Twitter or Facebook or any other social media. I simply love Taro’s games.

It reminds me of the "Your mom hates Dead Space 2" advertising campaign 8 years ago, but in a "we have zero self-awareness & imagine our video game is a neo ludonarrative religion which will change your life".

Bottom line, Naughty Dog live inside their own butts. This meanwhile was actually funny back in the day:

We’re... doing official anniversary reaction videos of official teaser trailer videos as part of official promotional material now? Someone needs to tap Naughty Dog on the shoulder and let them know the stick up their ass is showing.

I don't see how you can be disgusted at developers for their games having good graphics.

Why not? The graphics are getting so advanced it nearly mimics real life. And I find that appaling. I´m not criticising Naughty Dogs graphical expertise, I´m criticising the content and their obvious infatuation with blood and gore. The level of realism is getting too much for me. Also, Manhunt and Soldier of Fortune didn´t have that type of graphic fidelity which made the content easier to swallow. It´s like comparing GTA 5 to the first GTA. Yeah, the content is still the same, but the graphics are so advanced now that the level of violence in GTA 5 is on a whole new scale. You just can´t compare it.


Plus, y'know, it's a game.

Stupid argument. Just because it´s a game doesn´t mean the content can´t affect you.

You can see real death and gore on Facebook just by scrolling down.

Why would I want to see that?

So now that graphics have advanced so far they should stop including explicit violence in games? Why? What harm is it actually doing? It's been proven time after time after time that violence in games has no bearing on real life behaviour. There's a reason people like Jack Thompson aren't in the public eye any more. No one cares. If you don't like seeing it, don't buy it. Infatuation with blood and gore has been a thing since before you were born - it's fiction, escapism, it's cathartic. The developers go through a certification process that slaps a gigantic "M for Mature" label on these products - if kids get hold of them, it's the parent's or retailer's fault.

I never said you wanted to see real gore, I'm saying it's 2018 and anyone with a smartphone and an internet connection has access to this stuff in mere seconds. Why on earth would companies tone down fictional violence that so many millions of people enjoy when literally anybody that can spell can type "real death video" into Google?

I think you should practice on your reading comprehension. I have never said that I wanted to stop including explicit violence in games. I said that I am disgusted by Naughty Dogs obsession of violence in The Last of Us 2. It´s affecting ME, and no one else. I you like it, fine, go ahead and enjoy. I won´t take it away from you. But I´m bothered by it and if that clip from E3 is representative of the game in whole, I´m not sure if I will buy it.

I think you should "practice on" your syntax, but hey, let's not split hairs. Okay, so it's just you. Why is this game of all game suddenly too much for you? Why is it so much worse than, I don't know, The Last of Us, wherein people were shot, strangled, had their skulls smashes in, had their heads blown to pieces by shotguns, had their throats ripped out, etc?
