This section tells the history of the world of The Last of Us
Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, lives in one of the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run by what’s left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price. Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie. As they journey across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors. As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this new world.
The Last of Us - Recensione
Between Lincoln, Pittsburgh, Boston and Salt Lake City. From the remains chewed by the vegetation of a vertically developed downtown, to the snowy woods and shaken only by the jumps of a deer and the swift legs of a hare: the apocalypse, the end of the world as we know it and the almost total extinction of the genus human are events that do not characterize the game's rhythm of The Last of Us. On the contrary: Joel and Ellie move among the junk of a twenty-first century swept away, they entrust the rhythm of their journey to the strength of a horse and not to that of a Boeing. There are seasons, but there are no days and maybe not even weeks, there is no time for frivolities. The Last of Us is a third-person action game, made by the same label that has explored and redefined the canons of the genre during the current generation with the Uncharted trilogy (or at least the last two episodes), yet it is not the carbon copy of the package featuring Nathan Drake. Joel and Ellie's is an adventure that for long stretches resembles a documentary about everyday life in a world that no longer has any rules, no prospects, no resources. Mankind, twenty years after the spread of the deadly mushroom, has not reorganized itself, it is not rebuilding, it is only waiting to die.
There are Nathan's travels and Lara's shipwrecks, but the duo of The Last of Us does not witness practically any scene worthy of a great action movie. He kills, is hunted down, seeks shelter for the night, makes alliances that last the time to discover new conveniences, is beaten and beats in turn. All in streets, courses, suburbs, sewers. And this is what marks the strange rhythm of the game of Naughty Dog ... you are there you expect the cataclysm, the mother scene, the epic triumph of sparks, flames and somersaults as a stuntman, instead you take in full face despair, anguish and a massive dose of rough determination. From shootings to hand-to-hand clashes, you will hardly find a cruder, more violent and angry game than The Last of Us out there. People die because they are killed continuously. On the other hand, there is no room for any choice, trust must have ended long ago, perhaps when Ellie was taking her first steps in a world already destined to be forgotten. People die with their skull smashed, with a bullet in the head point-blank, without ever making any discount, without following the Philippines on the moral degradation that has caught the soul of Joel or all the other non-protagonist actors. With only Ellie letting herself go to amazed comments, but preparing to quickly digest the dish and put aside any grievances.
You have never killed with bare hands or with melee weapons like you will in The Last of Us.
There aren't even the breathtaking glimpses of Uncharted or Tomb Raider, there is no lethal and immense charm of the Bioshock Infinite Columbia, in the debris, dust and weeds of The Last of Us. Which does not mean that what Naughty Dog offers is not worth the ticket price, only that the team led by Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley has taken a road made of consistency, even dangerous. The rhythm, the event connected to small things and also a scenographic system that is appreciated more for the obsessive attention to detail with which every single house, shop, apartment or public office is reconstructed that Joel and Ellie find themselves visiting and raiding possibly. Drawers, beds, rugs, televisions, computers, kitchens, bar counters, billiard tables, medical equipment, shelves full of toys ... all turned upside down, entangled by the deadly grip of roots, branches, fronds and flowers. There is not (or at least: there is but it is very rare) a panorama that captivates the eye, there are no easy victories in The Last of Us.

Gustavo MaesoThe Last of Us - Análisis
Exactly one year ago, during the Sony conference prior to the 2012 E3, Naughty Dog, the creators of the Uncharted saga, amazed the world with the announcement o...
We had been complaining lately, in recent years, about the loss of the original essence in the survival horror genre. A trend increasingly closer to action and increasingly distant from terror had diluted gender in the present generation. Precisely it has been recently, with the announcement of The Evil Within, when Shinji Mikami (creator of Resident Evil) claimed the 'terrifying way' to recover the genre, exploration, tencision, atmosphere ... above the shootings. And in those we were when the Last of Us arrives at the stores, and Uncharted developers give us a lesson on how survival horror has to be.
And is that the boys of Naughty Dog, something else, but build an exciting story and create an atmosphere and atmosphere worthy of Hollywood ... in that they are experts. And this is precisely what makes this new game great, in addition to an exquisite gameplay, full of possibilities and choices, with exciting action elements, but also of other genres. Lovers of action, those of stealth, those of exploration, those of adventures, those of horror titles and those of the most role-playing elements ... you are all welcome to The Last of Us .
We have already talked about the history of the game on many occasions, but as a summary (and without revealing unacceptable spoilers) we will remember that humanity (at least the United States of America, which in the American mentality becomes what same) has been hit by an infection caused by fungi that transform people into extremely violent beings. A more or less traditional zombie invasion but with its peculiarities: the infection is caused by a fungus, the infected are transformed in about two days since their infection and, as time passes, the infected are transformed into completely transformed, full beings of fungi that cover your body.
The story of The Last of Us , after an exciting prologue that we are not going to reveal to you, places us 20 years after the infection. The world is an apocalyptic chaos where infection has almost won the game for humanity. In the case of the United States, some cities have been surrounded by the army and survive as quarantine zones under a strong martial law. This is the case in Boston, where our protagonist lives: Joel. Joel is a middle-aged type, tanned by events, a tough guy who has had to learn to defend himself and survives as a small smuggler getting merchandise in and out of the quarantine area.
Joel's life will be crossed, fortuitously, with that of Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, whom she will have to take out of the city and protect. With her he will embark on an epic journey that will profoundly change both of them. The relationship between the two characters and how it will change throughout history (which covers about a year) is one of the fundamental pillars of the script and the game. The two characters discuss, insult each other, have more pleasant moments, etc., throughout the more than 12 hours of play. Even in the quietest moments, while we explore, their conversations are great and they create unique moments in the game.
As you know, in The Last of Us we drive Joel, although Ellie will come with us constantly, or almost, since there are times when we temporarily separate from her. And I can assure you, the link that our character (and ourselves) created with this little virtual teenager is so great, that these will be the most distressing moments of the game. The title is a third-person action game where we will face dangerously infected people, but also many malicious humans.
In fact, the game has a spectacular setting, and reminds a lot of the comic and the television series The Walking Dead, as we go through deep America and fight to survive against dangerous infected, but we almost do it more with dangerous thugs than They want to steal all our supplies. As a secondary character in the game says, Billie, "the infected are predictable, the truly dangerous are the humans."
