Storyline

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

Trivia

The Last of Us was originally released for the PlayStation 3 on June 14th, 2013, and was later released for the PlayStation 4 on July 29th, 2014. Titled The Last of Us: Remastered, this version features a resolution bump to 1080p, some improved and new textures, a photo mode, audio setup customization, all of the DLC released at the time including the Left Behind story DLC, and allows the user to either play the game at 60 frames per second or 30 frames per second with higher quality shadows. The remaster later received a patch for HDR support and another for PlayStation 4 Pro support. On PS4 Pro the game renders at a native 4K resolution when playing in the 30 frames per second mode, and renders at 3200x1800p while on the 60 frames per second mode. If you have the PS4 Pro output at 1080p though the only improvement is that the high quality shadows are enabled in the 60 frames per second mode. See more »

Believe the Hype
4 July 2013 | by subspace2010See all my reviews

I've never been so moved by a video game. Terrified, awed and brought to tears in the first 20 minutes. This is the apocalypse and this is exactly how I have always imagined it would go down, quickly, brutally and without mercy or remorse. The realism here is intense. Initially there is chaos all around you. Cars crashing and exploding, buildings on fire, people running in all directions and the infected......These infected are fast and furious and not so much hungry for flesh as filled with pure rage and hellbent on killing all humans just cause....reminiscent of the rage infected undead from 28 Days Later. Whatever you do don't stop running. These are not Zombies as we know them, they are something entirely new and certainly not out of the realm of possibility, although an extremely far fetched one. I have been waiting with baited breath for this title ever since I heard of it's conception. I knew it would be something special, something different and Naughty Dog have certainly lived up to the hype. Visually stunning, superbly acted, this game is a work of art.
