I have recently been revisiting some games I’ve played before. In particular, ones that I’ve not got many trophies in. For The Last of Us, I had achieved only 3% of trophies, so I decided to have another go.
I felt hesitation at playing this game again. Not because I didn’t enjoy it first time round, but because of the stress and tension the game caused on the first play through. I particularly dreaded the sewers and the Winter sections, scenes from which had haunted my nightmares for many years.
I’ve included below this post a list of the trophies for this game. As you will notice, quite a few of them fall into the ‘collecting stuff’ category. Due to the fact that my first interaction with this game involved me sprinting from danger (sometimes real, more often imagined) at full speed, it wasn’t surprising that I didn’t have many of these trophies.
This time around, I knew roughly what to expect in each of the levels and was able to take my time exploring each environment. I also had more confidence, having had more practice with PS3 games and stealth mechanics than before, meaning I was able to clear out whole rooms of enemies (both human and infected) which I stealthed through first time round.
The overall result I was able to take more leisurely pace. This allowed me to really soak in the atmosphere and scenery of individual levels which I missed before. For example, the Winter section has some breathtaking views, which I was too busy hiding in a corner to notice previously. As well as the great acting talent and script within the game.
In the end, I managed to triple my trophy haul from 3% to 9%. Not quite the result I was hoping for, but I don’t even mind because the hunt allowed my to experience a different dimension to this incredible game.
