''The Last of Us'' was ''extremely'' well-received. It is considered to be not only Naughty Dog's best game, but (according to TheOtherWiki) is ''the most-accoladed game in history'', winning over 200 Game Of The Year awards, in addition to numerous other celebrations of its storytelling, voice acting, etc. As of March 2014, The Last of Us has sold well over 7 million copies, and after ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' had the second largest video game launch of 2013.

** ''Left Behind'' also features many [[CallBack Call Backs]] and references to the comic; Ellie and Riley discuss and mention things that come across as [[NoodleIncident Noodle Incidents]] to anyone who hasn't read the comic but, in reality, were actually shown.

* ArtStyleDissonance: For ''American Dreams'', [[TropesAreTools this trope somehow works]] - the art is more evocative of a slice-of-life comic akin to ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' than a story about the ZombieApocalypse, in spite of the more realistic-looking covers. Nonetheless, the work is essentially a coming-of-age story that focuses less on the actual infected themselves and more on Ellie's growth into becoming a young adult, meaning that the cartoonish appearance suits her state-of-mind at the time better than a gritty, realistic art style would.

* BittersweetEnding: Ellie and Riley both get infected, with Riley succumbing to the virus while Ellie remains immune. Ellie is then faced with the choice of either killing the monster that her friend will turn into, or leaving her behind at the risk of infecting others - and it's not clear which decision she made in the end. Nonetheless, Ellie lives on to try and make a difference with her condition, and Riley's last words are implied to have inspired her to keep living.
* BossBattle: Of a sort. Ellie has to best Riley in a few games and activites, though losing is an option (as they just laugh about it and the plot continues anyway).
* BreakTheCutie: Ellie. It also serves to explain why she dislikes leaving Marlene, and later Joel; she has a past of losing people she dearly cares about.
** Riley counts as well. In difference to Ellie, she's shown to nearly constantly wear a positive attitude, which makes it all the more sad when she eventually breaks down upon getting bit.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Players can optionally sign into facebook to let the game make a single post to their wall. [[spoiler:It means the photos Ellie and Riley take in the booth can be kept, allowing for an added punch if they view it after completing the DLC.]]

* CatScare: Literally. While Ellie's going through a dark hallway a cat will jump out twice, startling both her and likely the players.

* DramaticIrony: It's pretty sad when you know how it's going to turn out. [[spoiler:Ten fold when you realize they go for option two, meaning Ellie is going to watch Riley die without getting to turn herself.]]

** Ellie gets to show off her badass combat skills as early as in this story, notably while Riley defends herself against infected with a gun, Ellie tackles them head on and brutally stabs them to death. Riley even finds the time to exclaim ''"Wow."'' at her before they go back to escaping. Then there's how she [[SlashedThroat graphically kills that female infected attacking Riley...]]

** Clues are left here and there for [[spoiler:the true nature of Ellie and Riley's relationship, starting with Riley biting Ellie's neck while she's sleeping to scare her. They share a handshake for several seconds, Riley calls Ellie "my girl", and they share an awkward gaze at the end of the photobooth session. Alot of the things Riley tells Ellie during their quarrel also sounds very intimate; "Why did you bring me here?" - "I wanted to see you. [...] Guilt didn't make me cross a city full of soldiers." and "Who am I to stop you?" - "...the one person that can."]]
* ForegoneConclusion: [[spoiler:Both Ellie and Riley end up getting bit, with Riley eventually succumbing to the infection.]]

** How Riley left Ellie behind when she tried to join the fireflies.
** Ellie is forced to leave Joel behind to look for supplies in an abandoned mall [[spoiler: to try to heal his life-threatening puncture wound]].
*** However, after beating the main game, the title most likely refers to [[spoiler: how Ellie is suffering survivors guilt over Riley's death, and that Ellie is still waiting for her turn to die.]]

* PleaseDontLeaveMe: Ellie realizes she doesn't want Riley to leave with the Fireflies and quietly tells her "Don't go." Riley had secretly wanted to hear those words from Ellie all along and happily complies.

** Also possibly to MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic. The beauty-shop with the first dead soldier is named [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicRarity Rarity]] with a purple and white logo.
** Putting on the witch mask at the Halloween store will have Ellie and Riley share a few WizardOfOz related exchanges.

* ArtificialStupidity: It can be quite comical to watch the bad guys defend themselves towards infected, as alot of the time they will be completely hopeless at it. Special mention goes to some scenarios where even one or two infected (usually one being a clicker) can take down four or five men together as the latter will just fire blindly or attempt to tackle them.

* PlotHole: Happens when Ellie and Riley are running from infected. They eventually run into a gate where you have to find something to prop it open with on the other side while Riley holds it for you. Why couldn't Ellie just have held the gate for Riley like she was doing for her and then shut it in front the infected?
