The Last of Us Part II is a PlayStation 4 game, developed by Naughty Dog and launched by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is a narrative-driven game, which narrates a post-apocalyptic journey of survival of a man. The game is considered to be emotionally exhausting, and it has a perfect ending. The game has received both criticism and appreciation.
The game is set up in a situation, where a zombie virus-like fungal disease has spread across the world. Humans are about to become extinct. The game’s protagonist is Joel Miller, who lost his daughter on the eve of the apocalypse. His grievance and cynical outlook helped him in becoming the survivor of the apocalypse.
Joel life was simple, he either had to kill or get killed. He largely depended on smuggling and hunting. Also, he had to rip off other survivors to survive. His journey took a turn when he was assigned to Ellie’s case. Ellie was a teenage girl who was raised in a post-apocalyptic world.
The game has a lot of dramatic context in it. The in-game, characters were introduced only to be killed at any moment. The only emotional core of the game was the father-daughter duo. The game has lots of twists and turns. The story of the game could’ve attracted more attention and players if the game was narrated differently.
