The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment on June 14, 2013 for the PlayStation 3. The player controls Joel (voiced and motion-captured by Troy Baker) escorting the young Ellie (Ashley Johnson) across a post-apocalyptic United States. The player uses firearms, improvised weapons and stealth to defend against hostile humans and zombie-like creatures infected by a mutated strain of the Cordyceps fungus.

The Last of Us received critical acclaim for its writing, voice acting, sound design, level design, music and art direction. Its narrative was praised for its characterization, subtext, exploration of the human condition, and depiction of female and LGBT characters. Considered by many critics one of the greatest video games of all time, The Last of Us received over 200 "Game of the Year" awards and is the most awarded game in history. It was the second-largest PlayStation 3 video game launch of 2013 (after Grand Theft Auto V), selling over 1.3 million units in its first week. By August 2014, the game had sold over 8 million units worldwide, 7 million on PlayStation 3 and 1 million on PlayStation 4.

An updated version for the PlayStation 4, The Last of Us: Remastered, was released on July 29 in North America, July 30 in Australia and Europe, and August 1 in the United Kingdom. It includes the downloadable content episode Left Behind, previously released on PlayStation 3 on February 14, 2014.
