The Last of Us remake brings numerous visual and quality-of-life improvements that make a classic game even better.

The Last of Us is one of the most celebrated video games of the 21st century. Naughty Dog drew from their cinematic experience of the Uncharted series to create a riveting and mature post-apocalyptic world. At the core of The Last of Us is the struggle to survive, and find meaning in that survival.

Naughty Dog shocked players when they revealed a remake of the original 2013 The Last of Us for PlayStation 5 titled The Last of Us: Part I, which will later release for PC as well. Part I packages the original The Last of Us game and a remade version of its DLC, The Last of Us: Left Behind. The decision to remake a game that was already considered nearly perfect was met with confusion throughout the video game world. However, Part I does bring with it changes that make it the best way to experience Joel and Ellie's story across the United States.

Not every change made in Part I was for the better. Sometimes, what's missing is just as important as what's included. The most significant omission from Part I is the lack of "Factions."

Factions is the multiplayer mode from the original The Last of Us and its remaster. It's an underrated multiplayer mode with a passionate community that continues to this day. While some will give Naughty Dog grace due to the development of a newer and much more expansive version of Factions, the lack of a Factions in Part I leaves the package feeling a tad incomplete.
