Picking screencaps for The Last of Us is pretty difficult. I didn’t figure out how to use photo mode until about a third of the way into my first playthrough, and at that point I was just trying to survive the roller coaster ride. I was completely wrapped up in the story, so when I did start taking caps it was usually an attempt to catch the interplay between Joel and Ellie. Later I started a playthrough to focus on the broken but sometimes beautiful world. For this post I’ve settled on a small handful of non-spoilery images, because I have one friend that is still experiencing the game for the first time *cough*YouKnowWhoYouAre*cough*. Moving on, 21-27 of 50.
This was a game I had to play in short bursts at first, and later came the long sessions. Clickers are terrifying and the hotel basement nearly broke me, but I went on. Then Fall arrived and I started Winter… I absolutely could not stop until I reached the end of the game.
