The Last of Us is a triumph of video game narrative. You owe it to yourself to experience it. The game mechanics aren’t perfect, and the combat can get a little stale, but those are needless talking points judged next to everything that is beyond amazing in this game becomes. I love The Last of Us. Go play it for yourself, so that you can lie in bed trying to make sense of all the stuff that you experience. Let me know if you succeed.
