The Russo Brothers say The Last of Us 2 is “one of the greatest games ever made” by the Russo brothers, The Usso, directors of Avengers: Endgame (and other Marvel films), also gave their opinion on video games in a recent interview, stating that The Last of Us 2 is “one of the greatest games ever” according to both.
In an interview with IGN America, Anthony and Joe Russo were asked about video games, showing a particular fondness for Naughty Dog’s products, first showing an episode of Uncharted 4: Thief’s End, in which Joe called the game “one of the best action franchises ever”.
Then they were shown an episode from The Last of Us 2, a part inside the hospital, in which a certain boss also appears.
Noticeably fascinated by what is happening on the screen, Joe again spoke very positively about the game, calling it “one of the greatest games ever made”, and also said that the camera work could be “a page from Steven Spielberg’s textbook.”
In short, it seems pretty obvious that the brothers are fans of Naughty Dog’s work, and it’s likely that their cinematic leanings are quite in line with the training of directors of this caliber, making them naturally close to this type of game.
