The Last Of Us was brilliant in that the game mechanics were just something great around a wonderful storyline. Come to think about it some of the Final Fantasy games were really great stories too but the translation to screen was such a washed down version that it failed at what mattered: making us feel something.

On screen today we have shows like Game of Thrones that really deliver at making us feel things and keeping us surprised. Before there was Game of Thrones though I reckon that the death of Aerith Gainsborough in Final Fantasy 7 was one of those twists that TV shows and movies shied away from until recently.
