2. The Last of Us
Developer: Naughty Dog
We can't remember the last time a game received anything close to the universal praise that The Last of Us has earned. If all the reviews so far are anything to go by, then Naughty Dog's latest will likely stand among the giants of Metacritic alongside Grand Theft Auto IV, Ocarina of Time and other legendary high-scorers.
Does it deserve all the praise that's being hurled and heaped on it? Considering it just came out last week, we really don't want to spoil anything for you. But suffice to say the Uncharted developer's vision of post-apocalyptia, starring two of the most human characters we've ever encountered in a video game, is breathtaking.
And jesus, that ending. Watch out for it, people.
