The action of The Gray Man at the height of a flagship PlayStation saga?
Surprisingly, the Russo brothers are particularly attentive to what is happening on the side of video games. At the turn of a visual format orchestrated by our colleagues fromIGNthe two directors at work on this summer’s enormous blockbuster, The Gray Manwere taken against the traditional promotional interviews around the Netflix film to discuss some of their favorite video game passages, and even their favorite franchises. It is thanks to this question-and-answer session that the Russo brothers dropped a little bombshell that should delight PlayStation fans.
It all started when the two brothers were asked about their favorite chase scenes in video game history. And casually, the latter are very aware of current events and have given fairly recent examples such as Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, It Takes Two or Resident Evil Village. However, there is one license that sits well at the top of the pile, namely Uncharted of Naughty Dog, and which is, for Joe Russo, ” one of the best action games of all time “. The latter goes even further by comparing one of the emblematic scenes ofUncharted 4: A Thief’s End at the opening of the James Bond film, Sky Fall.

In terms of action, if they had to keep only one license, it would undeniably be that of Naughty Dog. However, their love of the productions of the Californian studio does not stop only with the adventures of this dear Nathan Drake since another license has marked them deeply. We give it to you in a thousand, it’s about The Last of Us, and more particularly the second part which literally captivated them. Among all the sequences of this sequel, there is one that caught their attention and which features Abby at a very critical moment in the script.
This scene will remain forever etched in their memory, that’s for sure. Especially since it gave them the impression of attending some of the great moments of Steven Spielberg’s cinema, just that ! They also took the opportunity to send one of the most beautiful compliments to the studio teams and Neil Druckmann, namely that ” The Last of Us 2 is one of the greatest games ever made”. In short, on the side of the Russo brothers, we seem to particularly appreciate the know-how of the studios owned by PlayStation: this is good because in September, they will be able to rediscover the very first chapter of The Last of Us on PS5.
