AusGamers recently posted a feature talking about the maturity of game design in the industry, and cites Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3 and The Last of Us as games leading an adult-oriented charge when it comes to creating games with a greater sense of reflective morality on the player.

(E3, Far Cry 3, PC, PS3, The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider, Wii U, Xbox 360)
