Before the direct sequel, T he Last of Us is one of the most important games of the PS3 generation , capable of giving life to one of the most important PlayStation franchises ever.
Ellie and Joel’s first adventure is in fact a scoring experience, thanks to a unique and tremendously realistic (within limits, of course) plot and characters.
That’s not to mention that director Neil Druckmann may have finally hinted at the company’s next title, coming to PS5 consoles in the next few years.
One of the most moving characters of the first chapter is undoubtedly Sarah , the daughter of protagonist Joel Miller, who plays a much more important role than one might think.

Now, a fan on Reddit has found a rather poignant and heartbreaking Easter Egg centered around young Sarah, the little girl we see losing her life after being hit by a soldier in the game’s prologue.
Also in the first part of TLOU , a fan found a diary with a happy birthday message written by the little girl, a series of phrases towards her father really heartbreaking (in hindsight).
My 4th or 5th playthrough and this is the first time I notice this. from thelastofus
You’re not a fossil (not yet)! Happy birthday
Dear dad, let’s see … you’re never there, you hate the music I like, you basically despise the movies I like, yet somehow you still manage to be the best dad every year, but how do you do it?
Happy birthday dad! Sarah
