Was it because Ellie was too epic for the cover?  Is was, wasn't it?  Cat Tongue

"We felt Ellie looked like she was a cut-out in the original picture and
was lit strangely compared to Joel. She looked... just a little bit off."

 

 

Ellie is the central character to game along with Joel. To remover her from promotional artwork for "stylish" reasons is completely illogical. Plus she looks fine in that cover to me. The lighting on her matches Joel and she definitely doesn't look "cut-out."

 

That dude's response was total nonsense.

I have never heard of that magazine so I could care less. They probably did it because Ellie has a gun in her hand, she's 14 and we're trying to put stricter gun laws here in America >_>

Ellie was the sole reason I bought the game. I'd have not bought the game if I never saw Ellie on a picture or video.

Ellie practically MADE the game for me. Joel was alright sure, but Ellie was the star in my book.
