THROUGH A MODIFICATION, A PLAYER MAKES JOEL BECOME THE CONTROLLABLE CHARACTER IN THE LAST OF US: PART 2, AND IT’S GREAT
There is never a shortage of players who, with a little talent and a few modifications, do wonders with the games. That would be the case of this story from The Last of Us: Part 2, which through a mod lets us control Joel.
That’s right, someone known by the pseudonym Smasher249 accepted the challenge of replacing Ellie, who plays the leading role, with this beloved character who was a crucial part of the history of the first installment of the series.
JOEL NOW STARTS IN THE LAST OF US: PART 2
That is something you can see in the videos that accompany this note, those that come from the same YouTube channel of this person. In the first one, Joel can be seen accompanying Dina in an intense shooting.
In another of the videos, Joel appears playing the guitar, and singing the song Take of Me. The downside of both films is that the voice heard is Ellie’s, suddenly bringing those who see them back to reality.
At least this modification pleases those who wanted Joel to be the protagonist of The Last of Us: Part 2. Ultimately, it was Naughty Dog’s decision that Ellie would carry the weight of the story.
In a way, that was anticipated from the first game, but some were not satisfied. In fact, there is no shortage of people who continue to resent that decision, but that did not prevent this sequel from being very well received by critics.
BUT THE MAGIC DIES SOON WHEN HEARING HIM SPEAK
It also did very well in terms of sales. In its first weekend alone, it sold more than four million copies on the PlayStation 4.
It is clear that there were those who did not care about the controversy that arose against him. Although perhaps part of the complaints regarding this title is the fate of Joel.
Some believe that such a character deserved to end differently. But in this case it was Neil Druckmann and Halley Gross who came up with it.
The Last of Us: Part 2 is one of the best games that the last generation left us. Currently, no one knows what Naughty Dog has planned for the PS5. Will the series continue, or is the second part the end of everything?
As long as Ellie is alive, that possibility remains in the air. But Druckmann and the studio are likely to have something new in mind for Sony’s brand new home console. We will have to keep an eye on any announcement
