The Last of Us places players in the shoes of Joel, an emotionally wounded and callous middle-aged man who is hired to escort Ellie, a young girl in her late teens. Joel is at first reluctant to take the job, seemingly uncomfortable in the young girl’s presence, but accepts the job because their destination is only a few hours away. It should be an easy job for a bountiful reward. However, as you may have suspected, things don’t go quite as planned. Saying anything more about the plot would be saying too much. The Last of Us is filled to the brim with heavily impactful moments that would only be lessened by any kind of spoilers.
