I barely have any time for video games these days, but this was worth it.
This was, hands down, one of the best games I’ve ever played. It’s a masterpiece–a true top-notch cinematic experience.
The story is gritty, visceral, and thought-provoking; the visuals and sound are downright stunning; the acting is at a Hollywood A-list level; the gameplay is intuitive, thrilling, and harrowing (especially on the highest difficulty levels); and the overall presentation and experience is nothing short of enthralling.
If you own a PS3, buy this game right now and disappear for a day or two. The Last of Us sets a new standard for single player gaming.
