The Last of Us is for all intents and purposes, the Game of the Year at this moment. With a narrative that is unabashed in its portrayal of an extremely dark cultivated story. Fleshed out characters bring depth that is unparalleled and gameplay is at its peak when you are left with only a brick in hand. To say it is perfect would be a lie, but I cannot imagine a better game coming along like this for a long time. Most likely, the swan song of this generation, The Last of Us is brilliant, dire, and I love it.
