Music Friday: The Last of Us (theme)

 

Hello! Let’s all tread together the treacherous path of the final day of the work week joined by some great music!

I can’t wait until I can try The Last of Us on my Playstation 4! I recently obtained a copy and am looking forward to reliving the post-apocaliptic adventure Naughty Dog crafted as one of the last best games for the Playstation 3. Of course it needs to finish downloading first…

For those who are completely out of the loop, TLOU is the story of Joel and Ellie, survivors in this reality who, for different reasons, travel a United States where society has almost disappeared thanks to a fungal disease that turns people into mindless creatures. Basically “zombies that are not zombies“. While some would scoff when they hear someone catalog the game as survival horror, I can say the last time I felt real dread and terror from a full game* was in this game.

* P.T. counts as a demo, or “interactive trailer” as Konami called it – but yes, that thing was incredibly scary.

The game sort of comes free with every PS4 purchase so it’s a great title that a lot of gamers can experience (particularly those switching to the Playstation side after years with their 360). It’s apparent in the first minutes of the game what kind of ride you’re in for, so enjoy it. A true masterpiece.
