    I recently got a PS4 (I enjoy playing video games with my son; don't judge me) and I was wandering around a Game Stop a couple weeks ago looking for something to play myself. The clerk suggested The Last of Us.

    It actually sat around for almost a week because I had other things to do. I finally popped it in toward the middle of the week and HOLY CRAP. This game has blown me away.

    I don't just mean the graphics, which are outstanding and sometimes a little disturbing. (I don't know if it was a glitch or planned but I was playing yesterday afternoon and killed a bad guy. After he dropped, he lay on the floor and twitched for a good 30 seconds.) But the story is what's driving this game for me.

    It's gotten to the point where my wife won't watch while I'm dealing with the baddies, but she wants me to call her when a cutscene starts so she can keep up with the plot.

    So, anyone else playing this (or have played it)?

    No, but sounds interesting. Only thing is, I have an Xbox One. It's probably a PS4 exclusive, right?

    Yeah exclusive to PS4.

    Edit: I was at least a generation and a half behind on a console. I had a Wii but the graphics for most of the games were cartoonish and the wifi was spotty. The PS4 has been a real treat.

    I never played the PS3 version but from what I've read it's been "remastered" to include better video and some very minor tweaks to the story.

    Might be a while before I grab it though. Destiny coming out on the 9th. Based on my experience on the beta, I will be glued to this game for a while. Putting the kids to bed and then me time.
