No. 14: Sarah in The Last of Us
We knew it was coming. Let's be honest.
The Last of Us was the story of Joel and Ellie. When Naughty Dog started it's epic post-apocalpytic actioner just before the apocalypse struck, we were surprised to find ourselves in Sarah's shoes. Getting to spend some time with Joel in a world where he wasn't completely beaten down and haggard, but actually happy and content with his daughter, was refreshing. Of course, that's what made it absolutely heart-shatteringly awful when Sarah was gunned down by the soldier defending the bridge.
We knew it was coming. That didn't meant it hurt any less.
