How Realistic Is The Last Of Us?

By Vaughn.H

No, that’s not a title alluding to just how gorgeous The Last of Us looks for a game created on a now ageing console – I can say that now the PlayStation 4 has been announced. Instead I’m looking at just how plausible Ellie and Joel’s adventure really is, how Naughty Dog took realism into account when seeing the Cordyceps fungus spread to humans and just how fast the world coud succumb to nature.

I imagine your first reaction will be one of derision, guffawing as you say “not very” in answer to my question, pointing to the fact that it’s a highly-exaggerated look at the possibility of a parasitical outbreak across humanity. But would you be surprised to know that Naughty Dog actually went all-out on ensuring that their PlayStation 3 swan song was really grounded in reality? So much so that they took biologist Dr. David Hughes on to help create a plausible fungal outbreak in their world.

This had to be the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Horrible thing to have! The Last of Us will be great and it's a realistic game for sure. Can't wait to play it!

Amazing article, straight up. If you take the time to read it, not only is it insightful but it's taking the analysis of the games story to a whole new direction.

Seriously, I thought this was going to be another article on graphics or something, this is nuts!

Also that video is a little too much for me to stomach at times.
