It’s about Joel, a smuggler with a dark past who ends up trying to smuggle a 14-year-old girl named Ellie across the country. It’s a dystopian world ravaged by disease (yes zombies). The story is touching, graphics are amazing and there’s a sequel coming out in May.

The game was released in 2013 and instantly became a best-seller. A remastered version was released a year later on PS4.

HBO has paired with “Chernobyl” writer and executive producer Craig Mazin to create the show, which currently doens’t have a release date.

This will be the first PS4 game to be turned into a show.
