‘The Last of Us’ is the Best of Gaming - Review ABC News

Poorly directed character interactions and convoluted storylines can plague even the most highly produced, intricately detailed video games. “The Last of Us” rises above these challenges to deliver an action-packed story that ties gameplay and character arcs together through well-scripted drama rather than outlandish plot twists.

Developed by Naughty Dog, the studio behind the much-acclaimed Uncharted series, “The Last of Us” is a PlayStation 3 game set 20 years into a post-apocalyptic future when an outbreak has decimated the population of the United States and left cities mostly abandoned. Tonally, the plot and pacing of “The Last of Us” is in line with TV shows and movies like “Children of Men,” “The Walking Dead,” “I Am Legend” and “28 Days Later.” You play as Joel, a Texan who journeys between survivor groups in a collapsed society where streets are flooded and vegetation is overgrown.
