The Original Ending Of The Last of Us Was Going To Be...

Naughty Dog initially had a slightly different ending in mind for The Last of Us, but when it came time to shoot that final scene, things changed.
Before you proceed to read any further, just note that there are SPOILERS to follow, so if you haven't yet finished The Last of Us, I highly recommend you exit out of this window immediately. Seriously, do it now.
Speaking to Kotaku, creative director Neil Druckmann explained that the team initially wanted a more hopeful ending following the mass shootout at the hospital when Joel escapes with Ellie. While the events themselves don't necessarily play out differently, the difference lies in Ellie's reaction to Joel's lie at the very end.
Are you glad Naughty Dog ended on a much more somber note by keeping Ellie's reaction true to her character? The more a think back on those final moments, the more I absolutely love what Naughty Dog achieved. Bravo.
