The Myth of Great Game Openings, or the Opening of The Last of Us

There are game openings that cannot really be spoiled, but the one from the Naughty Dog’s game is not one of them. Even though you know exactly what is going to happen the second after you press Start.

Here’s the kicker: the opening of The Last of Us will blow your mind, and for this particular game, it’s a bad thing.

I had watery eyes. It was really messed up. This article clearly describes the "process" of the game w/o spoiling of course.

Best opening ever ! i fu**ing cried !

Me too T_T

And it's a sign that TloU main theme isn't about humans fighting the infected. But 'the monster' inside normal humans are more 'scarry' than those infected.

I'm definitely in loved with this game <3
Superb story with superb voice acting made me believed that i had two best friend in real world name Joel and Ellie.

One of the best openings ever.
though I was relatively sure what would happen... (it was official that ellie would be your sidekick and that girl wasnt ellie...)

The the sounds of it happening were just unsettling realistic and mixed with the fantastic voice acting it had me choked up. Bravo to Naughty Dog for able to invoke such an intense feeling out of me in the first 10-15min of the game.

I must say it was brilliantly done. Normally, I wouldn't have felt much for a scene like this so early in a game, as the connection with the characters would not have really been fully established, but Naughty Dog managed to successfully make it emotional.

Well done

I just can't wait to get further into the game (about 2 hours in so far) to see what other awesome moments this game has to offer.

I'm about 4 hours ain't seen nothing yet. Might want to take a Valium now bro.
