… do we need it again?
In conversations with our internal SideQuesting community, we’re mostly in agreement that The Last of Us was a phenomenal game when it arrived on the PlayStation 3. In fact, it set the precedent for narrative, emotional storytelling — in a zombie infested world no doubt — that still affects us today.
Well, it would affect us even more if we hadn’t experienced the game about 50 times since its release.
Reviews are coming in great for the latest version, The Last of Us Part 1, a pseudo-remake of that original. But again, we feel like we’ve been here before. And we’ll be here again, in the not too distant future.
2013: The game first released on PS3.
2014: The DLC and the documentary Grounded: Making The Last of Us arrive
2014: The Game of the Year Edition is released for PS3
2014: The Last of Us Remastered is released for PS4
2020: The Last of Us Remastered is a launch title for the PlayStation Plus Collection on the PS5
2022: The Last of Us Part 1 (the remade original) releases on PS5
2023: The last of Us TV series debuts on HBO, chronicling the story of The Last of Us Part 1
The Last of Us is great, and it will continue to be great. Again and again. But yeah, again and again. And again!
Zach perhaps puts it best.
The Last of Us Part 1 arrives on PS5 on September 2nd.
