Showrunners of The Witcher Netflix series need to take notes!
Not even out uet and they're claiming to have avoided the "video game curse". Yeah thats a red flag.
its simple it follows exactly the story the game plays . unlike every other game to movie that trys to make its own story . easily seen with halo show
feel like this is jumping the gun since its not even out yet so no-one even knows what its like
Naugthy Dog, how about a new refreshing IP so you can avoid falling into obscurity? 🤷♂
The “change” they are insinuating is making me uncomfortable
Its not out yet. We will be the judges of that once the actual series comes out.
The video games gives the most beautiful stories and scenes so why do think and try to exit from a perfection box just to prove a point
But then you just fail
I’m so EXCITED!!!!!!!
The curse is that if you make a video game into a film it will not be in the same level. Even the great Steven Spielberg can't make a street fighters film because int the end it was design and mean t for a video. Sure it still fun to watch and enjoy but will never have the same levels and satisfaction as to what the story was : breathtaking. At the end of the day no company will understand and its reasonable ; they want to expand as much as possible.
Yeah hopefully they will make it as awesome as the Uncharted movie
It’s not out yet it could absolutely bomb and continue the curse.
Avoided??? Will see!
Don't get Neil Druckmann involved :
BAM – instant success
The show isn't out yet so how do they know
By golly they might just get it. Love the source material. Understand why the fans love the source material. Translate that to the screen. Win.
It doesn't have to be a shot for shot recreation of the game, of course that wouldn't work, but if you check those above boxes, this might just be genre-defining.
Can’t wait for the remastered version of this series.
Sole writer huh ??? surely theres no collaborative effort with someone else 👀
2:02 you were not the sole writer of the first game, Neil. Did you forget the comments you made about the impact Bruce Straley had in the story?
can anyone tell me if there's plans for another season? Cuz that would mean they're also adapting the second game?
It’s not a curse, it’s a lack of respect. It looks like these creators respect the material and the audience. That’s why it will work.
Can’t wait for the woke crap. that Neil wokeman, has in mind.
He’s absolutely right in regards to LOU1 and LOU2 being the GREATEST story ever told in video game history. Can’t believe we’re only only 9 days away from the series dropping.
Thats yet to be seen if they've avoided it.
The best story in videos games in ur opinion? Wtf. lmaoooo
love these guys’ passion for collaboration. it really feels like the two approached this with the perfect mindsets to bring Last of Us to a new medium.
“Understand it” also removes spores
Breaking the curse is the most appropriate term
if only naughty dog cared this much about the uncharted movie
Neil Cuckmann the king of manginas .
I’m skeptical still.
The curse has been done since the second sonic movie came out and was fire, also the castlevenia show
How does Xbox compete with this?…. Buy HBO? 😂😂😂😬
How to avoid to curse? Stick to the damn source material. Mortal Kombat, you had 50+ character to use as a main protagonist, instead you made someone up? Just stick to the source material.
Pretty arrogant and pretentious to declare themselves free of the video game curse. It’s not even out yet! The viewers and fans of the game will be the true judges of that. I’m sure EVERY director said the same thing about THEIR video game adaptation. Lol
The fans will decide if they avoided the video game curse
TLOU might not be cursed but part 2 CERTAINLY was!
what a liar!!! It's well known that his ideas for TLOU were scrapped!
To completely remove Bruce Straley from the picture is such a pathetic move.
they was spittin
How about thanking the developers and designers who turned your idea into a visual masterpiece Neil?
Dont know, they seems too confident.
0:27 Hold on "love it" won't make the story better if it's done horribly‼️
Sonic movies also avoided the video game curse too
It’s already a cinematic videogame. It’s less of a thing to mess up
As long as they ignore part 2..
Neil druckmann really hit the golden ticket. President of naughty dog, got his own tv show, the uncharted movie, and still developing his own games/new IP. Every game designers dream right here.
They're saying all the right things. I'll remain cautiously optimistic.
This is so hype
