Director of TLOU II responds to a comment against the game
Almost two years after the launch of _ The Last of US Part II _, many people are still angry with the way in which Joel’s story was represented.

Normally, this type of interactions do not reach another side and are ignored, but on this occasion the game director decided to answer . This was what he commented:
“1) If Joel had not gone to the hostel, he and Tommy would have died by the Horde.
2) Re: Trust: Do you remember that stranger in the first game in which Joel trusted and even fell asleep next? Here is a clue: he later let Joel and Ellie die to protect the little brother from him. “
This conversation refers to an extremely important moment in the history of The last of us part II, and one of the segments that have caused the most conflict. Although KSA4EVER18 points out that the Joel of the first game had never gone to the hostel, Druckmann points out that the situations surrounding this conflict were natural and a logical decision for the character .
