[Daily article] June 14: The Last of Us

The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror video game
developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony, released for the
PlayStation 3 worldwide on June 14, 2013. Players control Joel (Troy
Baker), a smuggler tasked with escorting a teenager, Ellie (Ashley
Johnson), across a post-apocalyptic United States. In third-person
perspective, players use firearms, improvised weapons, and stealth to
defend against hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures infected by a
mutated Cordyceps fungus. Up to eight players may engage in cooperative
and competitive gameplay online. The game received universal acclaim for
its narrative, gameplay, visual and sound design, characterization, and
depiction of female characters. The month of its release, it was the
PlayStation 3’s fastest-selling game that year: over 1.3 million units
within a week, and over 3.4 million within three weeks. It won year-end
accolades, including many Game of the Year awards, and is considered to
be one of the greatest video games of all time. An enhanced edition, The
Last of Us Remastered, was released for the PlayStation 4 in 2014, and a
sequel, The Last of Us Part II, was announced in 2016.
