I remember playing ‘The Last of Us,’ a post-apocalyptic action-adventure game developed by Naughty Dog when it was first released in 2013. It was a blast to play then and continues to be an excellent game almost 10 years later with the PS4 and PS5 remasters. But I’m not the only gamer that loves it. The game and its sequel, The Last of Us 2 have captured the hearts of gamers worldwide with its gripping storyline and engaging gameplay.
When HBO announced that it was coming out with a TV series based on the hit game, I was skeptical because almost every video game adaptation is a disappointment. But HBO bucked that trend and came out with a series that delights fans of the video game along with people that have never played it. You can bet that fans of The Last of Us have been treated to an abundance of humorous memes inspired by both the original game and the new HBO series.
These memes, ranging from witty one-liners to cleverly edited screenshots, have been shared extensively across social media platforms and have become a beloved aspect of The Last of Us community. We have compiled a list of 35 of the best memes that will have fans of the game or the HBO TV series laughing out loud. Enjoy!
