With such a simple yet elegant title "The Last of Us" grabs your interest and never lets go. I have been excited about this game for a while now and with graphics and game-play like what I have seen so far I cannot imagine any other game that would surpass my pick for "Must have game of 2013."
In the game you play as Joel, a sort of post-apocalyptic courier between controlled safe zones. He is a hardened survivor and has been tasked with smuggling Ellie out of Boston for a reason that all of us will have to wait to find out. Joel and Ellie must be mindful of the bandits that are scattered about the wasteland of our fair country however, as the setting might suggest, this land of ours was decimated by something we could not control...que the zombies. Well sort of. They are zombies in the sense that they are homicidal maniacs with no regard for human life, but the infection in this game is fungal...as in the mushroom kingdom type. This fungus infects the host and transforms them through stages and that is what gives you a variety of enemies to watch for. Don't take my word for it though. Check out some of these screen shots (taken from around the web) and then play the the videos below for a sneak peak at this incredible looking game. Then go pre-order it! The release date is June 14th.
There are a host of other vids out there. Check out the footage from PAX east for the most recent.
