Few games attain classic status easily, but Naughty Dog's The Last of Us did so instantly last summer when it was released to astronomically high praise and gripped the gaming world at a time that traditionally doesn't see many games released.

Undoubtedly The Last of Us has been a phenomena, and an assured classic that will be fondly remembered in the years to come, but why? And for what will it be remembered most?
