Some thoughts on The Last of Us

What is up Destructiod? This blog is about The Last of Us which is a videogame you can play. It is basically like that documentary called Tekken starting Qui Gon Jinn. In it you play as a man who has a job in human trafficking named Joel. My neighbor's name is Joel. One time he invited me over for a barbecue but I could not eat anything because I am a vegetarian and everything had meat on it and I was sad. Anyway, human trafficking is bad and you should not do it. Except The Last of Us makes you do it which is actually pretty tasteless actually. Shame on you Naughty Dog. You are a bad dog. A naughty dog. 

The Last of Us also has a character that is a girl. Shocking I know. I am led to believe she is a very good character and is played by the actrice Juno from that one movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and the loud noises like those in the Tom Cruise movie War of the Worlds which I actually thought was pretty good actually. As you can see in the screenshot above, the graphics are very much photorealistic. They have advanced polytron graphics exclusive to PlayStation Three that other consoles do not have. So stop asking for a Wii U port. You cannot have my emotions.

I was very sad to hear you do not get to play as Juno. Someone on Twitter told me that this was sexist probably. Anyway, back to Joel the more important character in the game. Joel is a bad man and does bad man things. Joe hurts people. Joel also likes to steal things. Joel goes into houses that do not belong to Joel and takes things from drawers and shelves and other things that are not drawers and shelves to keep and use as if they did belong to him actually. This is wrong. And I believe it does not send a good message to the youths in America.

Speaking of this, if video games were real life Joel would go to jail and be arrested probably. That would be The Last we see of him! I am concerned The Last of Us may be too violent.  I have been watching the Fox news lately and the pretty ladies and handsome men sitting on the comfy looking couch had some words for video games. Video games have come a long way from Pac Man and Pong they said. I agree with this. Speaking of men. Where is Mega Man Legends 3, Capcom? Back on topic now. Unfortunately video games are also very violent now and games such as Pony Friends for the Nintendo DS may be making people do violent crimes. Video games should be taxed like as are cigarettes and alcohol to stop the violence. 

Another disturbing thing about The Last of Us is that it is scary like that other frightening shoot 'em up F.3.A.R or that other one which I seem to have forgotten the name of. Oh well. I do not like scary movies because they make me scared and then I have to sleep with the light on at night and my energy bill goes up and it is already summer and the air conditioning is on already and we are living in economic times. Thanks Obama. Anyway, the zombies frightened me and I had to change my pants. In conclusion, The Last of Us is not a classic of the genre like Resident Evil 6 but it can still be fun sometimes. 

I give it one and a half thumbs up.
