Spoiler alert: Joel is older Darrel who changed his name after he finally broke down after losing all of his friends. (Concept art Joel did look very similar to Darryl Smiley Happy )

 

But honestly if I were to choose, that would be difficult. They both survived in infected southern USA (as if southern USA wasn't scary eough already) - but I would have to say Joel, because when we meet him he's already so broken down and in a very dark place. Darryl might be hardened by the apocalypse but it isn't quite at that level yet.

Daryl is overhyped as **bleep**, what can he really do except shoot his crossbow well? I love him, but Joel has survived for 20 or so years... no contest...

I guess I'm in doubt here, because as you said he has survived for 20 years in the apocalypse, but (at least from what we know) Joel doesn't have any tracking and hunting skills whatsoever, while Daryl does.

Well we already know that Joel can shoot, but i don't think tracking and hunting would prove much of an obstacle, most of Last of Us is in a city so we know he gets what he needs scavenging, but you do bring a good point about Daryl. But, I feel like Joel is a much harder person then Daryl, like that Joel knows how to handle himself better. Or maybe it's just that I hate how Daryl is completely safe in the show right now because everyone loves him and Walking Dead is supposed to show us that no one is safe but I'm just ranting now so yah.

That may be so, but Joel is a lot older has more experience dealing with really, just about any situation. He's been there done that. He may not have hunting and tracking skills, but he's survived far more. Plus the infected are more dangerous than shambling zombies.

Well Joel has been at this alot longer. So, that right there proves he is the better survivor. Now only if we could fast forward with Daryl and see where he is. Zombie food or survivor extraordinaire?  

 

I'm still going to wait till I get the game, but I'm leaning towards Joel here.


Joel: That's alright. I believe him.
