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

Did You Know?


It's possible that the running physique was inspired by the remake of Dawn of the dead (2004) being that the zombies run at full speed rather than just walking slowly. See more »


A car's engine can be started by putting it on first with the clutch on, switching the key to the "on" position, pushing it to a human running speed, then releasing the clutch. In the game, the sound of the starter motor solenoid is used, which is incorrect when performing this maneuver. 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).
