Playing The Last of Us, Pt. 1

Having played the game The Last of Us for around eleven hours, The Laymen's Gamer writes a blog post, stating: "I think there’s something that I touched on in my First Impressions review that I need to reiterate: how successful I’ve been feels like it directly correlates to how resourceful I am. Whether it’s scouring the area for resources, checking for workbenches, even retrieving arrows after they were shot to kill enemies, it would seem that the more I did this, the more prepared I was for what was to come. When you’re faced with a building filled to the brim with infected and you’ve got squat for resources, your entire game plan has to change. I’ve found myself unable to find a play style to carry through the game thus far. I’ve had to adjust my game plan for every combat scenario and, while I think that kind of sucks because I’m methodical when it comes to stuff like that, I’m growing used to it and learning to appreciate it.

I let my wife play it first and finish it first. I am mad at myself for that decision. I am 7 hours in and it is as good as everybody. I hope a lot of people buys this game.

My fiancee is seriously grossed out by the infected.

This game would be damn near unplayable without that ability. Try getting through the Salt Lake City tunnel without that ability and then we'll talk.
