If there’s a game from the last five years that will be remembered forever as a landmark in videogame storytelling, it’s probably The Last of Us by Naughty Dog. I went into the game with the highest of expectations, having heard the almost unanimous praise the game has gotten from the press, and was not disappointed in the slightest. Honestly, if you haven’t played this game yet, stop reading this review and go play it right now on PS3 or PS4. You need some more convincing? Alright, read on, and don’t worry about any major story spoilers, but I will be discussing gameplay elements, so if you’re worried about that, you should probably just go play the game now. Just do it anyway. Seriously. Note: I haven’t played any multiplayer yet, so I can’t comment on that mode at all. I’ve heard it’s pretty good.
