The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was released for the PlayStation 3 worldwide on June 14, 2013.

Players control Joel, a smuggler tasked with escorting a teenage girl named Ellie across a post-apocalyptic United States. The Last of Us is played from a third-person perspective; players use firearms and improvised weapons, and can use stealth to defend against hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutated strain of the Cordyceps fungus.

The game has received widespread critical acclaim, with praise directed at its narrative, gameplay, visual and sound design, characterization, and depiction of female characters.

Naughty Dog have since released several downloadable content additions; The Last of Us: Left Behind adds a single-player campaign following Ellie and her best friend Riley.
