VB - Brave female survivors break stereotypes in The Last of Us (hands-on)

VB - Despite The Last of Us depicting a post-pandemic U.S. with most of the country’s population dead, it still manages to pass the Bechdel test. That would be the simple, three-part checklist to determine if a work of fiction has a basic presence of female characters who engage in something besides men. With all of the discourse about misogyny in video games over the past year, The Last of Us going this route is quite refreshing. Especially since not a whole lot of games (or movies) meet these basic criteria. (PS3, The Last Of Us)
