Three Cheap Alternatives to Buying The Last of Us
Get a discounted apocalyptic experience
You've read the rave reviews of The Last of Us, I'm sure. If you haven't, then you're a more patient person than I. So you've probably heard the praise about this being the "Citizen Kane moment" for video games and how the story it tells is just about the greatest story humanity has ever seen since Odysseus set out on his Oddysey (though I always thought that name was a bit on the nose). The game centers around Joel, a normal dude just going about his drug and human trafficking business, surviving the mushroom head apocalypse, when all of a sudden, he's asked to escort a precocious young girl named Juno, er, Ellie across the damaged, volatile country. Apparently, that's the recipe for a phenomenal game and you should probably play it, but, if for some reason, you can't right now, we're here to suggest a few alternatives to spending sixty big ones on Naughty Dog's latest.
