The Last Of Us User Reviews
The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience blending survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization, cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature, infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on.
Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.

Ellie uses the F-word more than any other character in the game. Excluding optional/random dialog, she uses the F-word 53 times.
During the main game, none of the character's last names are revealed (not counting the Firefly pendants), but if you get the Left Behind DLC, Riley's last name is revealed as Abel.
'The infected' were inspired by an episode of the BBC Documentary Planet Earth (2006) which featured Cordyceps - killer fungi that invades the body of an insect to grow and diminish the insect population. It was featured in the episode titled, "Jungles" (Planet Earth: Jungles (2006)).Quotes
