    denverharward's The Last of Us Remastered (PS4)

    [February 23, 2017 09:11:55 PM]
    Today I played through the sequence where Joel and Ellie are driving their newfound truck into Pittsburgh and see a man alone in the street, apparently wounded. He reaches toward them, asking for help, but Joel senses danger and yells at Ellie to get down. The man pulls a gun and Joel is forced to accelerate, running him over. They are then ambushed by the rest of the bandit gang, who run them off the road and into a storefront. After Joel kills the men coming after them, he asks Ellie if she’s okay and she says she thinks so. Moving forward, they open a garage to find the bodies of the victims of the gang, who they had brutally tortured. Even in this harsh world, Ellie has trouble reconciling this senseless violence.

    Today I played through the sequence with Bill where we found his town and had to convince him to help us try to find a working vehicle. We tried to get a battery from a truck by the high school, but were ultimately disappointed. So we carried on looking and found Bill's former partner (and suggested gay love interest) which tore Bill up pretty bad. Definitely a moving scene.

    Today I played The Last of Us Remastered, which does a consistently great job of presenting difficult moral dilemmas. The catch is that the player is unable to choose the way the story plays out, so for this reason the ethical framework of the game seems to either be Kantian in nature, or perhaps a criticism/analysis of Kantianism. In my playthrough I reached the settlement established by Joel's brother Tommy. Before we could do much catching up, we were attacked by bandits and had to defend the people within the base. Afterwards, Joel asked Tommy to take Ellie off his hands and get her to the Fireflies, because he felt he had done enough already and wanted out. Tommy initially resisted but eventually gave in to Joel's pleas. However, Ellie threw a wrench in things by stealing a horse and riding off. After saving her from the bandits pursuing her, she let out all her frustration, yelling at Joel and saying he was the only one who had never left her and now he was leaving too. Joel responded with a cold, cruel air at first before later relenting and riding off with Ellie to Colorado to find the Fireflies lab. Some nice heavy emotional shit right there.
