Did You Know?


The 'Ish' subplot discovered through a multitude of notes in 'The Suburbs' chapter of the game is inspired by George R. Stewart's 1949 novel, 'Earth Abides.' In it, Isherwood Williams, AKA Ish, returns to civilization after spending an extended time at his remote archaeological camp to find that almost all of humanity has been wiped out by a virus. He meets a light-skinned African American woman named Emma, and they decide to raise a family together and found a community. But, after the death of Ish's son, Joey, Ish gives up all hope of reestablishing a society that he fondly remembers before the virus outbreak. 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).
