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!

@Roble123 Joel told her that there were alot more, like her, immune to the disease and the fireflies just couldn't find a cure. Ellie suspected he was lying, which he was, and asked him about it. So he lied again saying that what he said was all true. And she accepted his lie with the last line of the game being, "Okay"

@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

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

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.

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!
