Profanity adds to The Last of Us realism

It is clear that The Last of Us is going to be one of the games of 2013. We think that everyone has gotten over the fact that the game is not going to be out this year, but if there is one aspect of the game that has surprised us, it is the frequent use of profanity contained within.

Don’t worry, we’re going to go all Daily Mail on you as we actually think it’s a great idea that Naughty Dog are putting all this profanity in the game. When you are on the brink of survival and facing an angry mob of flesh eating individuals, it’s only natural for our two heroes to get all hot and bothered and let slip of the tongue right?

You may remember that the E3 demo shown featured a fair amount of profanity, but even Ellie is at it in a new trailer that Naughty Dog has shown off as part of Comic Con 2012. In it, we see also see a new character introduced called Bill – an individual who appears to have a past history with Joel and also takes an instant disliking to Ellie as he attempts to handcuff her.

There are obviously going to be some people who think that the no holds barred swearing is too much, but we say that it adds to the realism in what is already a fantastic looking storyline. The game is looking more like a hollywood movie by the day and we have to say that this is our favorite trailer for the game yet.

Take a look at the game yourself and let us know your thoughts on the frequent use of profanity. Do you agree that it adds to the ‘realism’ of the story and situation, or do you have other views?
