They *really* liked Inside…
You can’t be a good game maker unless you play games, too- and there are very few game makers as accomplished or as great as Naughty Dog are, so is it any surprise that these guys play a lot of games? And not just a lot of games, apparently they play some of the best games around.
Speaking to Game Informer, Naughty Dog’s Directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley (who both worked on The Last of Us and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End) shared their favorite games of last year. Druckmann said that his favorite game last year was The Last Guardian, followed by Inside, Super Mario Run, Rez Infinite, and Dishonored 2.
Straley, meanwhile, really appears to have enjoyed Inside, claiming it might be among his top five favorite games ever. His other four favorite games from last year were Budget Cuts, Thumper, The Lab, and Grow Up.
Straley is currently on sabbatical, and it is unknown what his next project will be. Druckmann, meanwhile, is helming The Last of Us Part 2, which is slated to release exclusively for the PS4, hopefully next year.
