I'm with Joel,
I would save Ellie,
Spock says that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, does this apply to the many of the world of the last of us, would you sacrifice Ellie for the good of man kind as it has survived in the game (the bits that we see anyway)?
Dose the human race shown in the game really deserve the sacrifice of this little girl, a society that has fractured and broken down under the stress of the infection, the military, the hunters, the fireflies, does they deserve this little girls life? do the others who who lived in the the zones or in there own community deserve better they ignore the problem except when it directly threatens them.
Heavy stuff yes, but that kinda what the game bring up, anybody got any thoughts
