GamerNode — The 2013 Nodie Awards

“For 2013, we’ve scaled back the extravagance of last year’s record-breaking 44 awards categories, and have moved away from the awards-show style presentation, where we list nominees and then reveal a winner. This year, we’re highlighting our top choices in each of 24 categories, many of which combine previous award categories into larger, more encompassing ones, with a focus on the big picture for each of the games considered.”

On Being a Survivor: Thoughts on The Last of Us

As many of you lovely gamers are aware, there’s this little game by Naughty Dog called The Last of Us that’s been out for a while and causing one heck of a discussion.

The following are my thoughts on the game and the ending specifically, so obviously here is a spoiler warning in case you haven’t witnessed it yourself. I’ll even put it in bold words after this paragraph to show I mean business.
