The Test of Time: Looking Back at The Last of Us

It's been a little over a year now since The Last of Us was released. Part of the last hurrah of AAA releases before the dawn of a new console generation, the game had tremendous expectations to live up to. Now that the dust has had some time to settle, and with the game's PlayStation 4 release just a few weeks off, Gamespot take a look back at what The Last of Us represented at the time of its release, and looks forward to what it might contribute to gaming's future. (PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, The Last Of Us Remastered)

It's a good read, quite robust in it's analysis of the gameplay tropes that TLOU uses. I like the way they compared the reviews of different sites like IGN, Edge, Polgone etc.

I wonder what he guys at Polygone will say about the Remaster. It's like, there's a fine balance though with breaking down a game to it's mechanical parts, or simply just enjoying the overall experience the game offers. And the overall experience if in a league of it's own. Not many game offer the complete package like TLOU.

The Last Of Us should be placed in a time capsule.

The last of us was good but it only got one playthrough from me. Anybody else think one playthrough was enough? After knowing the story that was basically it for me. Tho there were epic moments and I enjoyed the game there just wasnt any replay value and I sent it back to gf. I was more amazed by uc2. Anyone else get that jaw dropping feel like in their previous games?

This game made me fall in love with video games again. After a really long break from games through all of highschool and some of college. I looked everywhere for pendants and notes! I loved getting lost in the lore. But hey that was just me, I think this games perfect even the MP.

How many bubbles you got?

How many times can you agree/disagree in an article?

See why one gets used more often than the other?

You expressed an opinion. People clicked disagree. The logical assumption is that their reason for disagreeing is... THAT THEY DISAGREE! Amazing, right? I should hope that wouldn't need spelling out.

Obviously, not everybody feels the way you did about the game, so they disagreed with your comment.

Didn't it came out last year? Isn't it a wee bit early for a "looking back" article? O_o

Last year AND this year. I would say it is still a bit too fresh for any "test of time" assessment.

Ok article, but horrible title.

"The Test of Time: Looking Back at The Last of Us" lol, its still considered a current release, last time I checked its still selling on ps3.

Its being analysed as if its an ancient game that people need a refresher on. Anyways... Roll on the remake.

I can't wait for the remaster to come out so the hype train can end. The games a touchstone game of the gen, if u ain't know by now then... Bruh.
Maybe we'll get some UC4 news after the release!

Well when the Remaster launches there'll be about 1 month when all we're going to see are reviews, articles, screenshot comparisons, gameplay comparisons, multiplayer reviews etc etc etc, so yeah, brace yourself for that :)
our_games_are_art  +   317d ago
Haha but I actually look forward to that! Its all the unnecessary hype that gets me. I'm already so hyped!
