Read this at your own discretion guys it explains a lot about Joel you might want to figure out yourself by playing. But it shouldn't really spoil anything about the game I wouldn't figure.

Joel is one of the leading characters in the playstation 3 exclusive title The Last of Us, developed by Naughty Dog. He is a survivor of the plague with a passion for violence.

[edit] History

Twenty years after the plague has all but wiped out the human race, Joel is notorious among the people of the Boston quarantine zone to smuggle drugs and weapons into the camp. Sometime before the start of the game he promised a dying friend to look after Ellie, a young teenage girl of 14 from a nearby boarding house. During their escape, the military discover their plans and start their pursuit, chasing them from one side of the United States to the other.

[edit] Personality

Joel can be described as a violent thug, brutal killer and a torturer. He has shown competency in combat abilities and knows guns better than people. He seems not to care about the other survivors, except for Ellie, and has shown to be hostile toward the others.

Joel has been alive since before the plague, as a man shown in his late fourties, and knows of a more peaceful time. Since the plague his necessity to follow morality has diminished and geared more toward a necessity to survive. the game director, Bruce Stanley, has said "What he wouldn't do in the past is almost a daily occurrence at this point,".

[edit] Weapons



I have to say wow when I read about his character. Seems he will definitely have a lot of progression throughout the game. Really really excited about that.

Who else when watching the trailer of this on Uncharted TV, for the first time. Got him confused with Nathan?

I accidentally did, until I watched it fully.

I think it's fairly decent, average and cool.
I like how he's a little different than in any other games that I've played where all they care about is 'we have to find the survivors'.

I think dad might be something like this, if something like this did happen.
Well, I, like most people, saw the trailer online or on TV when Naughty Dog debuted it at the VGA's.

I also agree with you and Agent Mo in that I think it's good that he seems like a real, believable, normal guy.

It makes sense though. Having a character who isn't in it to survive would be a bit cliche, Joel is meant to be an 'average person'.

I don't know that's just how i see it. Not saying he's an amazing character, i do much prefer Ellie, but i like him enough

He's developed from a soft-hearted dude to someone who's only care is survival. In this world, I would think that'd be normal.
What's wrong with that? I may have misunderstood you, but to me that's a great thing.
I just feel like it's going to be overdone in this world. I like Joel, but he hasn't impressed me too much yet. We have the Survivors (I'll link to the wiki page when it's actually up...) who are only in it to survive. It happens.

I quite like him. When I first saw him he looked like quite a lovable character, but his background begs to differ.

Honestly, I'm not too impressed by the guy yet. He's developed from a soft-hearted dude to someone who's only care is survival. In this world, I would think that'd be normal. Only thing I like about him is that he saved Ellie, which was honestly pretty cool. That's what was heroic.

I like that we have a more darker main character than usual. I can definitely see this coming into play at some point during the story.
