1. The Last Of Us
This masterpiece is referred to by many as the Citizen Kane of gaming, and with just cause. The Last of Us is not only one of the most beautiful games even now; it is also one of the greatest gaming stories ever told. To the untrained eye this title may appear to be your run-of-the-mill zombie experience that so often floods the market these days, but upon closer inspection one understands that the undead are completely secondary, the living are this game’s focus.
We follow the characters as they face unimaginable horror and loss, yet even more importantly than that, we discover how they deal with that horror, and, at times, how they are able to laugh in the face of it. A truly remarkable cast and director could bring the aforementioned aspects to life in live action, allowing us to relive the beauty all over again. Or, the movie could go in a much different direction. Instead of following Joel, it could chronicle his brother instead, presenting a different journey in a familiar world.
Despite holding similarities to The Road, a The Last of Us movie could mean the last we see of bad movie adaptations.
