Best game I have played since MGS1 for PS1. For me this really is the game of this generation.

Yesterday I sat here and typed that I thought The Last of Us was a very good game that was overhyped. Upon I completion of the game I would like to retract that statement. It's not overhyped at all. When I played Bioshock Infinite I never thought I'd play a better game with a better story than that well fast forward four months and I have done so through Joel and Ellie's journey together. 

It's a beautiful story as it is a harrowing one and it gripped me from start to finish, the game grew on me more and more as I got to know Joel and Ellie and the ending was not what I expecting. It's brilliant ending and an ending which took guts to go with as far as I'm concerned and is an ending which asks more questions than it answers.

I just hope that Naughty Dog leave the Last of Us as it is and don't attempt to answer the unanswered questions from the ending of the story. If there ever was a game that deserved 10/10 it's this game. It deserves a perfect score for its story, gameplay and execution.

If you haven't played it yet play it!

Well now I wonder what they're gonna work on next (other than TLOU dlc) since they said that they won't be making a franchise out of this and I think uncharted us pretty much over

There's been no other major releases. The game has all the way till the end of August till anything has even the slightest chance of knocking it out of the number one spot.

Thank you Europe as an American i appreciate the intelligence of the European gamers. Because of gamers like you that support good games like the last of us , Animal Crossing and Tomb Raider. Here in America all they buy is brain dead shooters so they can curse each in multiplayer. call of duty Rots your brain

Six weeks at the top spot for a single format title is not bad going at all.   Well deserved it's a great game.

I'm really surprised to see Max Payne 3 up there. I played the story once, tried to play it a second time but just didn't enjoy it enough to go on. But the first time was awesome...as it should be. ;)

Glad to see a game with a well developed single-player campaign and that's not about war or sports doing so well in sales.

I reckon Rayman Legends will come and knock TLoU off top spot.

Could TLoU topple Black Ops 2 and FIFA's record of staying at the top for more than 7 or 8 weeks? It certainly deserves to do that!

I bought the game The Last of Us a few days ago and have been playing it for a couple of days and while it's a very enjoyable game, I do think it's overhyped a touch. 10/10? I wouldn't say so, I'd say it's 9/10 at the most.

@G4m3r0uTL4wZ why are you wasting your time keep coming onto articles about the game if you hated it so much, most people loved the game for the great gameplay, graphics, character development, storytelling and immersion not because they are drones. you keep complaining about how it was an interactive movie yet theres probably about a 1:10 ratio of video to game. if you just want a game that is all braindead shooting and no depth or intelligence to the story stick with cod or something

And how about we throw in Alan Wake as a contender for best games created.

I really loved Alan Wake i dont why they are not considering a part 2

@DARKKNIGHTPRABZ Characters weren't that strong honestly, only one i found remotely interesting were Ellie and Joel, Tommy had potential but so few time spent with him.

Finish the game first. I thought 9 when I was 6 hours in, come the end I would score the game a 9.6.

Campaign fantastic

Multiplayer fantastic. 

What more could you want.

@Its_MitchConnor I'd say it's around a 9.5 as well. It's definitely gotten better the closer I am to the end of the game. I'll check out the multiplayer as well.
