I am an intermediate player; it takes practice and time for me to complete a single player campaign, and inevitably, I die a lot during that journey. And out of all the video games death scenes I’ve witnessed, The Last of Us’s are still in a disturbing class of their own.
Half the point of GTA V being set in Los Santos was so that we could drive around the opulence of Bel Air and the Hollywood Hills. I don’t know if Rockstar ever meant for part of the city to be transformed into a post-apocalyptic scene, like something out of The Last Of Us.
The Last of Us has been a huge success for its developer, Naughty Dog. It’s been flooded with awards, glowing reviews, and fan love. It’s spawned a fantastic expansion and work has already begun on a sequel. No one’s more surprised by the success than the game’s developers. They thought it was going to fail.
The Last of Us has an incredible soundtrack. Gustavo Santaolalla’s score really gets to the heart of the game: it’s not about zombies and scares, it’s about horses and the road, and the music reflects that.
Naughty Dog is releasing its acclaimed DLC for The Last of Us, the Ellie-focused Left Behind, as a standalone download on May 12 for $10. Of course, you could also buy the whole package for only $20 on Amazon, too.

That HD remaster of The Last of Us sure looks great on a hi-def television. But on a standard TV, it looks downright spooky.
"Say a Homo sapiens-specific virus – natural or diabolically nano-engineered – picks us off but leaves everything else intact. How would the rest of nature respond if it were suddenly relieved of the relentless pressures we heap on it and our fellow organisms?" – The World Without Us, Alan Weisman.
Sure, it's fun to see people finding exploits to beat raid bosses solo, but it's something else entirely to see them just playing multiple roles by themselves and conquering with just a ton of patience and firepower.
YouTuber Freako likes to mess around with The Last Of Us, putting Ellie's shirt on Joel, or deleting characters. In this case though, the results are a whole lot spookier, accidentally turning TLOU into something like Beyond: Two Souls.
Even when they're being protected by bigger, stronger adults, the children who've survived in The Last of Us' fiction are seeing horrible things. Just like in this fan film.
The Last of Us is a moody and atmospheric game that tries to cultivate a serious tone. Resident Evil 4? Not so much. But when you combine the two, it creates something very special.
