WARNING: CONTAINS HEAVY, MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE LAST OF US
The Last of Us is singularly the best game I’ve played when it comes to the grey areas and hard choices of survival in extreme situations. In a lot of scenarios presented in the game, there’s no clean-cut right answer. In fact, having an easy, moralistic choice would entirely defeat the point of the game. The game is in fact all about the grey areas, and the difference between our current world and the one portrayed in the game….one in which Joel is in a fact a heroic figure.
