I was going to make a tread like this!
i cried at the ending cutscene, it was a combination of ellie's expression, the story, the music, the voice acting (i played the game in italian and IMO it's even better than the english version!) and the fact that the game was over.
i finished the game 5 times and the last was the only where i didn't cry.
this i what happen when i play a masterpiece.
Well, after playing through the 3rd time about 10 mins ago, the ending got me kind of cry like the image 2 on that one post in this thread... dunno why, it just did.
I have acquired the grade of Master in The Last of Us story/character/game knowledge as I have played it through 9 times.
... I have no life.
