Fans agree that The Last Of Us’ final sequence is one of gaming’s finest levels.
Many fans are celebrating The Last Of Us Part 1’s hospital mission as one of the finest levels ever created for video game.
Undoubtedly, we’ve all played through an unforgettable video game level that sticks in our memories for months after. A perfect example would be Halo 3’s final level; its warthog-run through an exploding world was truly memorable.
People tend to hold differing viewpoints when it comes to video game levels; God954 invited the PlayStation Reddit community to express these opinions by creating a thread asking: “What was your favourite level ever played in video gaming?”.
Answers ranged widely, suggesting levels from popular games and series like Red Dead Redemption, God Of War, and Mass Effect – to name just a few.
However, one commenter mentioned “The Final Mission in The Last of Us Part 1”, to which others also shared his/her appreciation. I understand their perspective – as many other reviewers agreed it was one of the finest levels from an otherwise outstanding game!
“Ouch… this mission made me cry when I played through it! Knowing Joel must lie to Ellie to protect her but that she knows through-and-through what he’s up against was really heartbreaking – even she would have given herself up gladly…oof…”
“Every time I play that mission, it still brings tears. Joel makes for such an extraordinary character whose every move seems designed to break your heart.”
“When I first played American Venom for RDR2, its ending completely floored me. Never had an action-adventure story felt so gripping to me! American Venom in RDR2 also created similar feelings.”
Emotions run high during this level as Ellie makes her way toward hospital only to then have soldiers blocking your path and chase you down, creating an unforgettable final challenge.
Impactful is certainly an understatement; people are still discussing it years after its initial release; that speaks volumes for its story and level design.
The Last Of Us Part 1 can be played on PlayStation 5, PC and in an inferior form titled The Last Of Us Remastered on PS4.
