What is The Last of Us?
Set in a world where an unnervingly believable fungal brain infection transforms most of the world's population into violent cannibals, the games follow grumpy smuggler Joel and his upbeat teen pal Ellie as they travel across a ruined US.
However, The Last of Us and its 2020 sequel are some of the most engaging games ever made. You should definitely dive in if the show intrigues you. The original game is available on PS3, PS4 and PS5 (a PC version is coming out March 3), while the second is currently only on PS4.
