How should the game start?

39 replies 615 views Edited Apr 22, 2013
Well, we have been all talking about the game's ending, but how about how it would start? Do you think it should be an Uncharted way of starting in the middle of the story, then going back, or perhaps the old traditional way of start to finish. How would you design the beginning of the game?

I would like to start out playing as a clicker, ready to attack an innocent person. Maybe have the whole segment play out in a couple of minutes, in a dark house. Then the intro credits would roll in, I think it would set the mood fr this game perfectly.

I've thought about this. I always imagined it opening in the military checkpoint place that there in. And it shows how life is inside then you get your mission and head out. I think it would be a good opening because it'll be a cool transition from being safe and guarded by the military to leaving (on purpose) to go to the harsh outside world.

It should start something like this. I open the game, insert disc into the ps3, the game loads up and tells me to press start., Hahahahaaha

On topic though, I can see something like a Red Dead Redemption opening.

20 year old Joel is farming in his family's ranch, when suddenly... things become a little crazy.

You play as a random dude during the infection outbreak. Then insues (is that how you spell it?) a tutorial as you learn the basic things (movemement, cover, perhaps melee) trying to survive. You then have a swarm of infected running after you and you gotta find a gun, but its hopeless. There are too many, and you get overwhelmed, and... DIE. You then fast-forward to I-dont-know-how-much-further and you are now in the shoes of Joel. So the story begins.

 

Personally I think this could be a cool start to the game as it would serve as a good way of showing how much the world has gone to s*** and it'll simply be pretty exciting and tense.

It will start in Joel's home, then it will transition to the Military City, where he meets Marlene.

I reckon it should start back at the very start of the infection maybe have some news reports saying that's military is controlling it then you have an evacuation and your random character is forced o evacuate but it doesn't happen a lot of people die and then there's a cut into Joel wading through waist high water outside the quarantine zone

I always thought it would be cool to play as Joel before everything goes crazy. I mean if you watch the red band trailer and when everyone is running. I think that is the or close tho the beginning.

Joel," My parents told me "Son,you're special,you were born to do great things."

Joel,"You know what? They were right."

-You hear gun fires in the background and sounds of runners and people screams in the background,and than The Last of Us appears on the screen with a black background with fancy effects happening to the text.-

Also kudos if you get my reference.
