In 2013, American game developer Naughty Dog released the PlayStation 3 swansong The Last of Us to enthusiastic praise from critics and players alike, with Vice even calling it “the greatest game of the last console generation.”

Seven years later, The Last of Us Part II is finally here to give the PlayStation 4 the sendoff it deserves, and the character development, plot twists and narrative structures of Part II will no doubt have many remembering it as "the greatest game sequel" of a generation.

The series’ first outing followed hardened smuggler Joel in his attempt to safely guide and protect 14-year-old Ellie on a cross-country odyssey after the world has collapsed into a zombie apocalypse.
