Case Study: The Last of Us

What is groundbreaking about The Last of Us TV series is that it marks the first time a solely games-based IP has been successfully turned into a critically lauded show for mature audiences.

The Last Of Us had a score of 9.2/10 on IMDb. This, in turn, is an indicator of the quality of storytelling and emphasis on character development inherent in many modern games—a quality that has seemingly caught many in the TV and film industry napping. Game sales have also now seen a spike on the back of the show’s success.

It is, therefore, instructive to examine what facets of The Last of Us game made it so suitable for such an adaptation, which will, in turn, help to uncover other potential games IP that fit the mold.
