The Last of Us: Nine Ways It's Unforgettable

Topless Robot writes: In case you can't tell, I LOVED my time with Naughty Dog's latest. Before reading on, I believe the best way to play is to know very little, but in order to discuss I have to be a tiny bit spoilery so if you're merely wondering if the game is worth your hard-earned sixty bucks the answer is an enthusiastic yes. The Last of Us ranks among the best action-adventures, up there with Resident Evil 4 and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. If you want to know why I feel that way, read on as I discuss the game's strengths (many, many strengths) and few hiccups. Again, very minor spoilers. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

IMO The Last of Us is the pinnacle of linear story telling. Everything is just so well crafted, from the world, gameplay and character animations. They're all engineered to go along perfectly with the narrative. With next gen pushing for open-world games, RPGs with branching paths, and blending multiplayer with singleplayer it's nice to know that linear singleplayer narratives can still deliver an amazing experience.
