This game makes me glad I bought a PS3 years ago, and kept it even though it collects dust. My only complaint is the lack of backstory. The reason I knew what the virus that destroyed humanity was is because I follewed previews up until release. If you've seen the popular documentary Planet Earth, it explains a type of fungus that feeds on insects and vegitation, which is the basis for the outbreak in The Last of Us. No where in the game is this explained in detail, which is a shame because it's such a cool premise, and different from all the other zombie outbreak games. Other than this minor complaint, this game is pure genius and should be played by anyone who consideres themselves a gamer.
I've been gaming since 1989. In all those years, this is absolutely the best game I have ever had the privilege of experiencing and playing.
Just go get it. Don't bother wasting time reading reviews - Get it.
