How many independent roguelikes are currently floating around? Can you count the number of times you've predicted a game's ending before witnessing it? It's an absolutely bizarre double-edged sword. The gaming community is constantly searching for something new and special to allow them simply to feel. Perhaps this is why The Last of Us is such a masterpiece, as it permanently raised the video game industry's storytelling standards.
