As most of you may already know, “The Last of Us” adventure HBO series adaptation has roots in the mega-popular video game that was launched on the PlayStation platform in 2013. Receiving prestigious awards, it has created a global gaming community, it’s not surprising that the show has already taken the youth by storm. Unlike many other video games, it also had a very emotional storyline, which has been transferred to the show well. The general storyline revolves around the destroyed modern civilization and the 14 years old girl who is the main protagonist of the story. Being immune, she is also the last hope of humanity as she learns to survive in the destroyed world.

What You Need to Know About “The Last of Us” 

– The Immunity Aspect.

Watching the series, you will question this part most of all, as you might keep asking yourself about the reasons behind Ellie’s immunity. Ellie was exposed to the infection at a young age and discovered she was immune. At the same time, Ellie is not contagious, even though it will take her time and some suffering to learn about that.

– Learning How to Fight Desperation.

Another important thing in the series is learning how to fight desperation. The reason why the game and the show became so popular is related to the desperation that most of us are going through. As the world has been through the pandemic, the game became even more relevant as many of us have seen ourselves in the character of Ellie as we fought daily challenges. If you are feeling desperate and feel like never going to college, you have to see the show and learn that you are a fighter as well who can be the change and prove to yourself and others that you can still make it no matter what!

– An Element of Social Distancing.

Another vital point that the show makes is the very nature of the quarantine zones portrayed in the show and the aspect of the social distancing that comes with so much more. We can learn about anger management and the ways how different people understand the rules and the necessities of isolation. Both the game and the series portray it quite well!

Finding The Hope No Matter What.

Many people all over the world fell in love with the show because it has been translated by people from the gaming community. Although there were minor differences, it was done with so much passion that people have learned this version even without approaching translation moviemaking services. Nevertheless, suppose you want to achieve better clarity in your language or learn a foreign language. In that case, it’s always better to contact a professional linguist to ensure that no important aspects have been missed. Sometimes it’s a little phrase or an expression that can make a world of difference.

It’s All About Cooperation 

As you are playing the famous game or following the characters on screen, you will also notice the rare chemistry between the characters of Ellie and Joel, as they represent a powerful example of cooperation and finding the reason to fight and survive. While some people might approach it as yet another “zombie apocalypse” flick, it is way more than that because it shows the fragility of our world and the necessity to cooperate and fight the means to go further and think beyond the darkness and desolation that surrounds us.
