Naughty Dog’s newest game, The Last of Us, brings the humanity and storytelling the developer has been praised for to a new setting—a post-apocalyptic wasteland in which players must use stealth, guns, or improvised weapons to save a girl who might be the future of humanity. The story follows Joel, a smuggler whose newest cargo is Ellie, a teenage girl. Her immunity to the fungal infection turning the world’s population into cannibalistic monsters may lead to a cure. Joel and Ellie must set out across the country to reach a group that can formulate the cure, while evading the mindless infected and numerous human bandits along the way.

The game received critical acclaim, with particular praise for its story, graphics, and emotional depth. Like some of Naughty Dog’s other games, the gameplay was somewhat criticized for being less imaginative than the story—while stealth is a viable option, players often face off against waves of enemies with no choice but to gun them all down. Regardless of criticism, The Last of Us has earned more awards than any other game in history, and sets a high bar for the storytelling capability of the medium.
