The gaming industry is filled with all manner of action-adventure titles, but few have garnered as large a fanbase as The Last of Us. The series debuted in 2013 and has spawned a sequel and a live-action series on HBO Max. The first game has been remade in HD, and there's been a successful comic book series, a live show, and a tabletop game, so The Last of Us is a franchise that continues to grow.
While the franchise sits snugly in the action-adventure genre, it has several survival horror elements mixed with an incredibly engaging story filled with meticulous details and exceptionally well-written characters. As a result, the franchise features some tear-jerker moments and some so harrowing players have to put down their controllers and take a minute before moving forward.
This list features the most harrowing moments throughout the franchise, and many are downright disturbing. Take a look at the most distressing moments from The Last of Us franchise, and be sure to upvote any that made you take a moment before proceeding further.
Because this list features moments from throughout the franchise, a SPOILER WARNING is in effect for those who haven't completed the games.
