** Troy Baker as a badass "shoot everything on sight" kinda guy with a shady and blood drenched past, is charged to pick up and deliver a young girl who he is forced to protect from hordes of enemies while she provides backup and occasionally pipes up with helpful advice or snarky comments. Said girl also runs away from him at one point. Hmm, now [[VideoGame/BioshockInfinite where have we heard that before?]]

** The game was originally going to be a ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' game, but because the developers felt that they were only making it because it was an existing IP they could easily make money off of, they went to their higher ups and explained that they didn't feel like they were making the game for the right reasons and they didn't really feel passionate about it. They were then told to do what they wanted, and thus ''The Last of Us'' was born. Naughty Dog later released some of the concept art for the game in an artbook, revealing a [[http://jakanddaxter.wikia.com/wiki/Jak_4?file=Jak_4_concept_art_2.png photorealistic Jak]] and a [[http://jakanddaxter.wikia.com/wiki/Jak_4?file=Jak_4_concept_art_1.png steampunk setting.]]
