The Last of Us - will the TV show spoil the game?

Never played. Just started the remastered version on the ps5. Not sure how to add spoilers but how much of the show can I watch without spoiling the game?

If you don't want to be spoiled for the game, don't watch any of the show first (and vice versa). The show is extremely faithful to the story of the game.

I’m sorry to put this here, but I couldn't find, using the search, the real thread.
But, just wanted to know…is this a particularly hard game? Thanks.

No, I hit a few spots along the way that took me several tries, but I wouldn't say the game was hard.

Cool. Thanks Max. Just wanted to get a heads up before I delve into. Wanted to start this and see if I like it before the remaster of 2 comes out. Also, torn bc I just finished SM1 and wanted to start on MM, but also wanted a break from that world for a bit. We’ll see. But, thanks again for the response.

Search for short words sucks here. Best to use the developer, in this case Naughty Dog.

Yeah, I searched “Last” as usually at least 4 letters are needed, but no such luck on the full name or Last.

Re: The Last of Us - will the TV show spoil the game?

Overall it isn't hard, but there are a few spots that can be frustrating. I recall one of my housemates was "mentoring" me through a few tough spots (he had played, it was my first time). He was always coaching me to be silent and stealthy, and I was having issues preferring brute force. He kept telling "You can't do that! Wait, you just did that?" His way was probably better, I was just frustrated.

Character names can help too.

I figure Iíll give it a shot and see if it sticks. But, I might double team it with Miles Morales too.

it's really flexible how you can customize difficulty. Everything can be adjusted to your liking. You can make resources plentiful or scarce, smart or dumb enemies etc .etc.

Have you played any of the Uncharted games? If you've played one Naughty Dog adventure game, you've kinda played them all. Different setting, a bit more stealth, otherwise very similar gameplay.

Re: The Last of Us - will the TV show spoil the game?

I don't remember if the first game was like this. But I just played Last of Us 2 earlier this year and the autosaving is extremely generous. When I messed up and got killed, there wasn't a lot I had to replay. I'm not particularly good at shooter/stealth games, but didn't have problems with either game on the default difficulty.
