Praise comes from every corner for Naughty Dog’s new cinematic survival action game, The Last of US. It’s being howled about as a masterpiece of a gaming generation and as an artistic achievement. Personally, I beg to differ; however, before I follow that road to its end, let’s just look at the usual review. Without spoiling any of the fun for you, The Last of Us follows what you’d expect from zombie fiction – post-apocalyptic world, refugee camps, wandering bandits, complete governmental collapse, and desperate survivors doing what we expect them to do; survive. IGN’s review called it “a near-perfect analog for The Road, a literary masterpiece written by Cormac McCarthy” and I’m not sure that could be a more fitting description.
