I honestly sort of think you’re overthinking it because you’ve played the game. I don’t really see the differences you see. We don’t really see Joel as a shitty dad in the game anymore than we do in the show. I don’t honestly know that we were supposed to think he’s a shitty dad. I certainly never thought that.

I should play the game again, but I remember it being crystal clear in the opening he wasn't there for her, and he's currently doing his best to make things right. That's why her death hit him so hard. With her also died his redemption as a father. That's why he was willing to sacrifice everything for Ellie - she was his second chance for that.
