The Last of Us – IGDA Toronto 2013 Keynote

Neil Druckmann, Creative Director and Writer at Naughty Dog breaks down the evolution of the story behind The Last of Us in the keynote presentation from IGDA Toronto 2013. Listening to how the story adapted based on feedback from the studio’s female staff, as well as the ultimate goal to do away with misogyny in female video game characters altogether, is truly inspiring. The Last of Us has been out long enough that I think it’s safe to share something like this despite all the spoilers it contains, but just in case, you’ve been warned!
