gamescom: Alone and Forsaken in The Last of Us trailer

Watch this latest trailer for The Last of Us and tell me that it doesn’t produce a little stirring somewhere in your loins. It’s pretty hard to avoid getting riled up by a song like “Alone and Forsaken.” Oh, and there’s all that violent survival stuff going on too.

For me, what sells this trailer is its final seconds. The last word spoken by Ellie, more a reaction than anything else, is such a beautifully delivered touch that I got a little chill down my spine. Such drama! Such tension! Such innocent uncertainty!
