The Last of Us Part II really bought it home. Missed the whole weekend and when I finally caught up to that, it was mind-blowing.

There were a few things that were neat to see during the show - looking forward to more info on Let it Die and Starblood Arena; Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Absolver, and Ni No Kuni 2 were also cool to see, but once again Naughty Dog show the primary reason for my needing to own a PS4.... Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and The Last of Use: Part II look AMAZING.

Gotta be real though and admit I was a little disappointed to see U:TLL was actually an Uncharted/Naughty Dog game - for a hot minute there I thought Sony was going to have a new, epic, modernish-day, undercover, female spy IP on their hands.... instead we get more Uncharted.... hard to be down on it as I can't wait to play through Chloe's story, but still, as I said, a little disappointed it wasn't a new IP.

Oh, and I wish Death Stranding would get out of it's own way - I don't think there's any way it's releasing before 2019, and when it eventually comes out, I don't want to be bored of/ annoyed with it due to a multi-year marketing campaign.

Also sad to see that there was no update on Days Gone, the new God of War, or the Final Fantasy 7 Remake... fingers crossed at least some of them are 2017 games, because I'm not sure how many other AAA titles that were shown were.

The Last of Us Part 2 is gonna be amazing, Uncharted the Lost Legacy will draw me in even though I despise Nadine, Chloe is a positive to draw from it though and the updated gameplay is awesome

Knack 2! Yess!

Not going to get too excited about The Last of Us just yet, it's at least 2 years away.

Uncharted Lost Legacy looks good, hope to see Cutter make an appearance.

Will be getting Crash remaster.

Nex Machina looks good too, always like Housemarque games.

2 last 2 furious
Followed by 5 more sequels, Last 7 being the sad chapter where Troy Baker dies before the game is finished, and Nolan North has to stand in and give his best Joel voice to finish the game off..

They did try to trick us by letting us know it was Chloe only at the end. I saw the news before I watched the conference (which was really cool) but I would have thought the same as you since it didn't quite look like uncharted at first ::)

We were only missing Jak and Daxter. Otherwise we would have had every major Naughty Dog Series!
