Just started The Last of Us on PS4 and it is as engrossing as it ever was. And yes, 60 FPS.
The problem with Left Behind is that it is hard to discuss without spoiling much of what makes it special. Suffice it to say that for me, it was in many ways even more enjoyable than the original campaign. Brilliant.

As far as I can tell, The Last of Us doesn’t have the same “cheat” options as Uncharted 2. I’m specifically talking about the one-shot-kill option. The game is arguably best played on higher difficulties, but for subsequent playthroughs, just being able to enjoy the story with shortened gameplay sequences would be really great.
In other news, I wonder how Donut Joel would look like.
The Last of Us is more serious than Uncharted. It paints a picture of a bleak world where desperation and fear are commonplace, and does so masterfully. Its story, though straightforward, is expertly told and—perhaps most importantly—does not insult the player’s intelligence.
