Steven Lacroix says: For some strange reason, Resident Evil 4 kept coming up in my head as I advanced through The Last of Us. Both seem like completely different games at first glance. However, the more I thought about it, the more similarities kept popping up. Not necessarily in a gaming sense, but more on a personal level. Resident Evil 4 was released in January of 2005, and completely revolutionized action games. It set the new standard and every great series from God of War to Uncharted has seen some inspiration from it. I didn’t realize early on, but The Last of Us is the next revolution. You might have noticed all the crazy scores on the web, the game got perfect 10′s from a record number of media outlets (Jarrod’s just a douche). These scores are not just over excitement. The Last of Us is simply a masterpiece.
