Tag / The Last Of Us
The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was released for the PlayStation 3 worldwide on June 14, 2013. Players control Joel, a smuggler tasked with escorting a teenage girl named Ellie across a post-apocalyptic United States. The Last of Us is played from a third-person perspective; players use firearms and improvised weapons, and can use stealth to defend against hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutated strain of the Cordyceps fungus. In the game’s online multiplayer mode, up to eight players engage in cooperative and competitive gameplay.
It's now painfully obvious that I play games differently to others. I had joked with a co-worker just before playing Borderlands 2 online with him for the first time that I played a very different style. From what he told me, he didn't expect what he saw. I was fearless, and that wasn't always a good thing. If there was a point that I had to get to, I was already half way there before he could turn around. I don't loot boxes for ammo, I just run, shoot, kill, pick up what ever was on them, and keep running. I don't think it's because I want to finish the game faster, I just don't see the point in us wasting time in a fictional world where death is not permanent. Sure, games such as The Last of Us, the Silent Hill series, The Evil Within and Alan Wake did change the way that I played for those game, but overall I still had this "throw caution to the wind" play style where I didn't care too much about the outcome be it good or bad.
