For the first time in the history of Post Arcade, we have handed out a perfect score to a game. That game is The Last of Us, the latest creation from Naughty Dog, the geniuses behind the Uncharted series of games.
Post Arcade’s senior writer, Chad Sapieha, has played thousands of games over the course of his career. Until now, he’s never had an answer to the question, “what’s your favourite game?”
Now he has an answer to that question.
Here’s a little taste of his review:
Most games feel like games with a story wrapped around them. Action and clunky mechanics poke up against the fabric of the narrative like the skeletons of old furniture betraying outlines under draped sheets.
The Last of Us, on the other hand, feels like a true union of story and play.
Action and narrative flow together logically and organically like the prose of a great book. There’s a believable reason for everything Joel and Ellie do, whether it’s moving between the floors of a dilapidated building or trying to figure out how to operate the gate of a hydroelectric dam. The story drives everything that takes place.
