DECRYPTING THE LAST OF US GAMES: WHAT REMAINS OF HUMANITY?

Nicolas Deneschau



 

“How far would I go for love?"


This deep questioning irrigates the visceral narratives of The Last of Us . Love is the central subject of the life of the humans that we are. It is the primary object of all literature, cinema, series, the most extravagant reality TV shows and, here, video games.


After shaking up the adventure game formula with the famous Uncharted series , Naughty Dog evolved its recipe in 2013 with The Last of Us , embracing the post-apocalyptic genre. Seven years later, The Last of Us Part II offered a more radical and divisive experience, but still centered on humans, their motivations and their flaws.


With the book Deciphering the games The Last of Us. What remains of humanity? , the author Nicolas Deneschau invites us to grasp all the complexity that lies behind the design of these titles, as well as the meticulousness of their authors and development teams. It analyzes the multiple meanings of reading The Last of Us, while dwelling on the major role that the diptych has played in the transformation of the video game blockbuster.
