Played the remastered version of the first one on my PS4. It's one of the very few games (Hl2 Ep2 anyone?) that made me feel genuine emotions akin to what books and films can do. A genuine work of art.
I'm not sure the story really needs a sequel though? Hopefully it thoroughly deals with the fallout of the end of the original.
Yeah, the original bookends itself perfectly, however I'm more than positive Naughty Dog can give it the justice it. Upon being asked about it, the lead developer simply said "just trust us". I'm willing to do that.
