I don't often like video games, and it's even rarer to enjoy them as much as some of my favorite movies, but The Last of Us may have achieved that for me. At first I didn't enjoy it. The graphics and gameplay weren't as good as other games, but I stuck with it and got past that. Then playing it became more of a curiosity about where the story was headed. For those who don't know, it's a post-apocalyptic America where a pathogen that attacks the brain turns infected people into zombie killers. The main character Joel early on loses his daughter not to infection but to the military which is ordered to quarantine certain areas and protect them against people trying to sneak in. There is a group fighting the military and then other groups and individuals you encounter along the way. One of which puts Joel in charge of a juvenile girl. All of this made LoU a lot more interesting than a typical zombie game. But it wasn't until the end that I realized the brilliance of the story. Now LoU2 has been announced. I can't really discuss this without giving away the ending of LoU and making predictions based on that. But the co-writer of Westworld is now working on LoU2, along with Neil Druckmann, who was responsible for LoU and a few of my other favorite games. I'm also happy that Gustavo Santaolalla will be back for the music--you can hear his score come up at the end of the trailer. I was first intro'ed to his music in Babel, which is a great film.
