I just finished THE LAST OF US. It is roundly lauded as one of the greatest video games of all time and for good reason.

The story is compelling, the writing is top notch, the acting is phenomenal. I played the remastered version: it was gorgeous.

I’m not a huge fan of stealth-based game mechanics but I really enjoyed the balance of stealth and aggression in THE LAST OF US. There was often more than a couple ways to progress past a pack of infected or group of hunters.

The monsters were genuinely scary. Clickers especially.

My only criticism would be the incredibly high human body count – I understand that’s more due to game mechanics but it was really the only thing that stretched my suspension of disbelief.

Still, what a fantastic game. I’m so glad I played it.
