My favorite observation about the Last of Us is from Tim Rogers. In his review he wrote:

The Last if Us is full of moments a film editor would cut out.

It’s true! Stories just work totally differently in games vs TV / Film, even though they share the same visual language.

I love that quote, too, and it's true! It's easy to miss one of the most impressive parts of the game, which are the optional conversations. They show perfectly how Joel and Ellie's relationship changes. They even adjusted the body language animations as the relationship changed.

This is one of my favorite videos about TLoU, and it speaks to how these little things (that might be cut from a movie) add up.
