Naughty Dog's The Last of Us was one of the best games of the last generation (and doing well this generation, thanks to the remaster), but not everyone has had the opportunity to play it. If you just want to check out the story, fan Grant Voegtle has you covered with this episodic mega-edit.
Before we go any further, yes, you're heading into HIGH SPOILER TERRITORY by clicking on any of these links. Consider yourself sufficiently warned!
You can check out the trailer above and for all six videos, there's a playlist conveniently available on the YouTube. You'll need to set aside a good four-five hours if you want to watch it all in one go, with the last portion taking up almost an hour by itself.
As Voegtle explains in the trailer's description, the playthrough footage has been "restructured and edited to be a smooth and engaging viewing experience". Speaking with The Verge's Nathan Ingraham, Voegtle says each clip took "an average of 20 to 30 hours of work" with "some parts of the game up to 100 times to get make everything look just right".
If that isn't dedication, well, I'm not sure what is. I don't know if I'd have the fortitude to play any game — particular just one sequence — hundreds of times to capture the right moment. Beating it is good enough for me.
