Personally, I'd think The Last of Us could make a good movie/series if done entirely in CGI.
Since Xbox One decided to have a Halo series, The Last of Us could be a good series/movie only on PS3/PS4, whether it was in live-action or CGI.
But that is just my opinion. Just not to fail it like many game-to-movies have failed and follow the story closely from the game, it would be 11/10 from everyone, even those people with fungi infestation on their brains.
P.S. Splendid game, deserves Game of the Year for sure, and if there was actual Oscars for games, this would most definitely deserve such.
