    *skips past the spoilers* I really want this game. It looks so good. In other news, apparently Ellen Page isn't too happy about Ellie's character because they're too similar or something? I don't know really.

    Got my hands on a copy today...currently fighting through da 'Burgh.

    Great game, but a victim of the hype machine. I was kind of expecting the second coming with everything I've read and heard. Nonetheless, the story is about as good as it gets, voice performances are the best I've ever seen and the attention to detail warrants an award category on its own. Joel is a certified badass not to be crossed. I also like Ellie's often inappropriate sailor pottymouth (Kids these days--I tell ya).

    The world of Last of Us is truly terrifying post-apocalyptic fare and surprisingly the least disturbing aspect of the game is the almost incidental "zombie apocalypse." And if the ending is to be believed, then perhaps the glory days of humanity are done and will never return again. Fuck the world--it's all about survival, baby. Ultimately, survival is an exercise in futility; the game seems to believe that the world is a better place without us. Nihilistic, thought-provoking and very ballsy.

    The perfect swan song for one of the greatest gaming systems of all time. Bravo.

    Finished it about a half an hour ago...wow. One of the greatest games I've ever had the privilege to play. Everything Disco mentioned was spot on. This is a work of art.

    Can't wait to buy it.
