So I started watching a Let's Play of the TLOU, and the guy pointed out that Sarah has a giant stuffed giraffe in her room. Having just finished the singleplayer, and seen the whole giraffe scene, this makes this realization somehow sweet, but very very sad. I don't know why it, but it somehow makes the whole 'Ellie as a replacement for Sarah' relationship with Joel that much more touching.
This definitely makes me want to play through the campaign again, I hope there are plenty of other subtle little things like that to notice. Does anybody know of anything else like this (not just silly easter eggs, but things with story implications)?
Wow nice noticing . And like the other guy said, it's the little things. One thing I noticed was that when you first got the bow in Bill's Town (pretty early in the game) Ellie says something like "Hey you should give me that bow, I have a pretty good shot with that thing." And when it hits Winter (very late in the game) Ellie is seen with a main weapon, her bow and she is pretty good at it
