SPOILERS FOR THE LAST OF US CONTAINED WITHIN!
I bought The Last of Us a few weeks after its launch, but it laid trapped, Han Solo-like, in its cellophane, as I ignored it in favour of surfing the internet and pursuing my obsessive affair with Netflix. “You’ve got to play it,” my younger brother would insist. “It’s the greatest game I’ve ever played.”
So I finally relented. The short version is, I really liked it, but didnt think it was the second coming, like many. I mentioned this to some friends and my fanatical brother – they seemed to think I’d missed something, or played the wrong game, or was just incapable of human emotion.
