The Last of Us has been one of the most hyped games for 2013. After the success of the Uncharted series, Naughty Dog could do no wrong in launching a new RPG game. This time instead of doing an Indiana Jones type game, the game focuses on the rise of the zombie apocalypse in modern day. In all honesty, I don't care much for zombies. Maybe that's a shock to most gamers, but I don't think that the undead is typically exciting. It's been done over and over in movies and video games in general its lost it essence for a long time. But story writers tie the zombie-survivor game into something deeper nowadays. Zombies have a way of being politically symbolic in so examples. In most games, the plot surfaces around government control leading the public to go against them and break the system.
The graphics are the best the ps3 platform has to offer. Everything is detailed to every patch. The settings really show off the color palettes and destruction and decay after the zombie apocalypse. The atmosphere of the isolated towns are somewhat creepy and you feel the need to turn around every few seconds to watch out for any clickers or running zombies. The game offers so many sceneries' to explore like lush green forests, urban streets, factories, museums, and suburban neighborhoods. You want to explore and search all crevices and corners to find any interesting collectables.
