GR - Can you compare The Last of Us and Animal Crossing and come away with a winner or shades of beautiful gray?

Animal Crossing: New Leaf and The Last of Us released right around the same time in June of 2013. I reviewed both titles for GameRevolution and found each stunning, engaging, and wholly consuming for very different reasons. Each received a 5/5.

I loved Animal Crossing's daring approach to an established brand, reneging on neanderthal mechanics that prevented you from getting your sh** done around town. Further, the title allowed you to become the mayor for the first time and determine how and where your town would expand.

Entertaining features like the police station or fixtures like bridges and benches became earned goods, not pre-determined and immovable rocks. The Last of Us, however, was a very different beast. (3DS, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Culture, Industry, PS3, The Last Of Us)

Never expected the comparison, but it's a good one.
