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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
On topic though, I can see something like a Red Dead Redemption opening.
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.
This months old sig image will remain till the end of days.
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.
