Looking for some poignant moments between those zombie headshots? Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is just the thing. It’s a post-apocalyptic third-person survival action-adventure game that goes beyond the usual blood ‘n guts with a compelling story line with characters that bond as they struggle through the adversity of being up against hordes of the Infected. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl, must work as a team to survive against all odds.
The game also introduces some interesting mechanics, like “dynamic stealth,” an engaging matrix of actions and strategies that the player can exploit to remain in the shadows, unnoticed by baddies. Or just run out into the open, guns blazing. It’s your life, man.
