HOW THE LAST OF US REMAINS A MASTERPIECE 5 YEARS LATER

3 posts in this topic

 

In a weird way, The Last of Us

 has nothing to do with gnarly looking, fungus infected, brain dead humans who want nothing more than to rip the flesh from your face as you trek across the rural U.S. in search of answers. That's why, early on in development, Naughty Dog hesitated over even including them in the game that's since sold 17 million copies in five years.

The Last of Us is, instead, very much about the familial bond between a man, Joel, and a girl, Ellie, over a 15-hour journey of stealth and shooting. It's also the representation of a teenager coming into her own, and coming to terms with what her presence in a post apocalyptic world means as she discovers and grapples with the varying sides of a humanity under threat. And it's the representation of a man overcoming the emotional baggage of having once been a father, restructuring his life, and then growing to embrace becoming a father figure.

There are so many dark story themes to explore in The Last of Us, which is something I did with Bruce Straley, co creator of The Last of Us, formerly at Naughty Dog and current good friend of mine -- when we sat down recently to recall some of his experiences in developing the game. Between the infected, the stealth, the hard to nail down pacing, and the famous giraffe scene, there's a lot to cover in reflecting about one of the most impressive games of the last decade.

Seriously, if you are just going to just copy and paste without even bothering to give any of your own input or even remove the god damn formatting you could at least give credit to the source.

Guess I'll do it for you:  http://uk.ign.com/articles/2018/06/18/how-the-last-of-us-remains-a-masterpiece-5-years-later

I have no idea why you would try to copy such an uninteresting piece about a game that has had so many quality critiques written about it but you will be immediately removed from the community if you ever do this again. I don't know if trying to pass this off as yours was intentional but I will assume it was since you posted it to community content and changed and added nothing to it.
