The Last of Us is well-deserving of all its accolades. It’s a graphically stunning escape into a post-apocalyptic world where the man you’re rooting for is arguably just as bad as the people he’s fighting against. It’s the story of a man who has forgotten how to be a father and a girl who never had one. It’s not about friendship in the face of adversity, or even love – although traces linger. It’s ultimately about selfishness, self-preservation and survival. The ending will leave you reeling and is guaranteed to be talked about for years to come. Naughty Dog has given the PlayStation 3 its swan song, with one of the most emotionally engaging and harrowing experiences ever committed to the video game medium – it will ricochet within gamer’s minds, hearts and souls long after the final credits roll. In short, The Last of Us will invade your head: it’s the best infection money can buy.
