EDGE: Still Playing: The Last Of Us – in praise of Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic setting

EDGE: ""Naughty Dog doesn’t shy away from inviting moral quandaries either, humanising enemies (the human ones anyway) in a manner that Uncharted studiously avoided. While hiding behind cover before one encounter, we could hear two enemies conversing about the infected threat. “You get bit?” asks one. “Not today. You?” the other replies. “Not today,” says the first with a laboured sigh. It’s an important reminder that the people inhabiting a game world – even the enemies you are about to shoot in the head – can make a place feel sympathetic and real if their creators can imbue them with depth and emotional complexity.""

Very few games have made me feel like TLoU did. Games like these are the reasons i love being a gamer so much. I would recommend it to everyone.

This game made feel depressed and at times kinda worn out with how dark and brutal that world is. No other game has ever made me feel emotionally worn out like TLoU. One of the best gaming experience ever.

If I could erase my brain, up until the day before TLOU came out, I'd be happy.

Game of the generation. Anyone who disagrees either hasn't played it or never owned a PS3 in the first place.

king_george999d ago

um yeah if u haven't played this game yet wtf are u doing? go get this masterpiece lol. without a doubt this will go down as one of the best games of all time. we'll remember this like we remember games like ocarina of time, final fantasy 7, halo(1,2,3), half life etc..

seriously people its that amazing. if it doesn't stir up some kind of emotion in you then consider yourself a robot lol
