The Last of Us
Naughty Dog has an amazing ability to craft brand new experiences each console generation. For the original PlayStation we got Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 we had Jak and Daxter and on the PS3 we got Uncharted. However, this generation we got a treat with The Last of Us, a dark and morally ambiguous survival-horror game. Excellent writing and acting melds with tight and intense gameplay into one hell of a game that will keep you playing for hours. The Last of Us is a treat you don’t normally come by with publishers typically relying on sequels. Thank goodness Sony is not like that.
