Twenty years after a fungal infection obliterated most of the U.S. population and turned the victims into infected monstrosities, Joel is tasked with escorting Ellie to the Fireflies to help reverse engineer a cure. However, this isnt easy for either of them, since Joel has been left almost permanently bitter after the death of his daughter, and Ellie is distrusting of him. Written by targusholy

When Sam and Ellie are finished playing darts, Sam remarks to Ellie how she "clearly got destroyed", while she says it was "practically a tie." If you look at the board afterwards, you'll notice that, relative to the center, their darts are in the exact same positions. See more »


A character siphons gasoline out of a truck's tank. However the siphon's outer end is held higher than the gas level (and the tank's opening) which would stop the siphoning. After that, the siphon is left hanging from the tank without purging, which would actually spill the gasoline. See more »

One Of The Greatest Games Of All Time (So Far)
25 June 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The overall zombie/post-apocalyptic/infected/dystopian story may be somewhat trite, yet that doesn't halt The Last of Us from being one of the best and most cinematic video game experiences ever.

You can see multiple filmic influences throughout the game, 28 Days Later, The Road, Dawn of the Dead, Pontypool, Rec, The Road Warrior.

You play the game as two (soul) survivors, a hard boiled man who's lost everything and a cocky young girl who just may have the solution to save the world.

It's very much like interacting in a live action film rather than just playing a game. These feel like real people and not just game characters.

Looking forward to the inevitable sequel(s).
