Lying about what?
#22 to #5 - anon (06/29/2013) [-]
Here's my theory

Ellie knew. However, the ending is basically stating that in the world that they live in now, there is no wrong or right. Throughout the game, you kill zombies to survive, you kill other humans to survive and Joel no longer questions whether or not what he does is moral. Ellie hadn't reached that level of maturity until her battle with David, who explained that there is no wrong or right and they eat people to survive. Because THAT is the point of life in the world that they live in; Survival. Ellie is able to, while internally struggling, accept Joel's lie as she now knows that whether he is telling the truth or not, it is a matter of survival.

The ending is not sad, nor is it happy. It just is.

I really hope there is a sequel to this game. The ending, while satisfying, makes me want even more! Im really curious as to what they will do with DLC. Hopefully they will also add an infected mode in multiplayer

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, in case you already didn't know this, they said Ellie/Joel's story is done, meaning 2/3 will show other stories. Maybe some references to ellie/joel could happen, but otherwise, not really. Maybe something showing how the outbreak infects other countries.

I can't wait for the DLC! I have a few thoughts on who the DLC may revolve around:
1. Tommy and Joel
2. Marlene
3. Joel and Tess
4. Bill
5. Ellie and Riley
6. Henry and Sam

Thats what I figured would happen so maybe if they go that route they can experiment with different forms of infected. Organisms adapt to survive and the cordyceps fungus is no exception. It would be cool to see the origin of the fungus( patient zero) which probably happened in south america where the real world fungus runs rampant.

Sony registered a domain for a Last of us 2 and 3.

Not saying it WILL happen, just saying your wish might come true. Hope that made your day a bit better

I think they should leave it as it is. It's more powerful and beautiful as a stand alone title. I'm sure Naughty Dog could make an excellent sequel (they haven't failed us yet), but I'd like to see this one just be.

I think the DLC may follow young Joel and his brother.

I see your point there but I still cant help but want more! It was such a powerful narrative and I dont want this title to just fizzle out... Naughty Dog tends to work in trilogies and hopefully this wont be an exception. That DLC idea sounds really interesting! An entire 20 year period pretty much left untouched leaves a lot of possibilities. I also hope that they address the one minor issue I had with the game: the limited interaction between infected and non infected NPC's

True it would be sad to see that universe just be a one game but I still stand by what I said.
If they don't do it for the DLC they will do it for the sequel(s). Sort of how it was with the old man (it's been a while since I've played Uncharted) and Drake.

I don't see what story they can do after, Elle is relatively safe. The fireflies were pretty much murdered and I would assume there isn't a whole army of them. Raiders may come into play but that seems a bit of a cop out thing and form there? Revenge? On the road again? Maybe Joel is now old and dying and she has to fend for herself? Ultimately it's a happy ending and I'd like it to stay that way after the whole game I was thinking of the Walking Dead game (the good one).

Well if it must stay a singular title, hopefully they will keep it alive as long as possible with fresh multi player and single player dlc

How is the multiplayer? I haven't touched it yet.
User avatar #66 to #65 - zanea (06/29/2013) [-]
Its a lot of fun and very challenging. Camping can become an issue but there are plenty of ways to work around it. I personally use the stealth class because it is far more ammo efficient ( ammo is very scarce just as in single player)
User avatar #69 to #66 - HeartOfTheDL (06/29/2013) [-]
Sounds interesting seeing as it would be totally different from Uncharted. Joel can't climb nor can anyone for that matter. Also camping is always an issue in multiplayer games. CoD (I know faggot) not only run into one camper but team camping. There was just this one game this morning that made me rage quit for the first time. I would normally continue playing the match and leave when it was over but dam it was slow and it was not fun with the opposite team camping.

the cool thing about this is its spawning rate. when you die it may not necessarily have you respawn in a couple seconds, it basically works in waves for lack of a better term. because of this it really emphasizes the feeling of desperation
User avatar #72 to #71 - HeartOfTheDL (06/29/2013) [-]
Thats cool. I'll dive into it when I have time.

Nah she has to have known. The devs said she did and voice actor believes she did, but she resigns herself to Joel. Kinda' a, 'okay, I know you're lying but I trust there is a good reason for it and accept that' thing,.
#12 to #5 - anon (06/29/2013) [-]

There are a lot of theories.... but I like to think that Ellie's question wasn't as strait forward as it seems. Her asking if what he told her was the truth was a way of saying "You won't leave me? I was worth it?" And when he, without hesitation swears to her, confirms that he will. I imagine she's feeling both happy and sad, happy that he cares that much, but guilty because she's alive when she could have been the cure.

She can't believe that, after all they've been through, the Fireflies' research yielded no results. She's having doubts basically.

Spoiler again
And she feels survivor's guilt for her friend's death, Sam's death, and Tess's death. She feels as though she was responsible for it because there was nothing she could do to stop it.

I have a feeling she does, but I think she knows that he's lying  for a good reason...   
Who knows, time will tell.
