I finally played it. Now @an-hour-killed can get on with her life.
It was an excellent game, and I’m glad I avoided spoilers for so long. Easily the prettiest game I have played in a long time, too. There’s just one problem: I want more. I plowed through the game in under 18 hours and the DLC in a few hours.
There’s been talk about a movie for some time. Now that I’ve played it, I don’t want it to be made into a movie. A video game is the perfect media for the story, and I’m not sure a movie could do it justice. Imagine The Road motion picture and The Walking Dead TV series smooshed together in your head. There, you’ve seen The Last of Us as a movie in your head. Done.
