The Last of Us is no exception, as Gustavo gives the compelling story room to breathe."

One of the very few games that I actually listen to the sound track. I just leave it on on the quiet Sunday afternoons. It quite awesome to just chill to.

So true. Everytime I stay two or three minutes staring at the main menu just to listen to the awesome track. Every tune in this game is perfect, and so atmospheric. Soundtrack of the year for me so far, juste before Bioshock Infinite's.

I love the music during the cutscene with Joel and Ellie on horseback when they're leaving that abandoned house. The slow methodic pick of the guitar. Best soundtrack to a videogame I've ever heard. Def deserves to win some awards for best voice-acting and best soundtrack.
