Whatever you thought of the story, you've got to admit it's an absolute technical masterpiece. This is a truly stunning game, and Naughty Dog should be proud of what they pushed out.
They should be even prouder of the amount of crazy details, easter eggs and references they managed to pack the game with too. It's absolutely full of them from almost start to finish, referencing everything from the previous game in the series to iconic movies. There's also time to reference Naughty Dog's back library in the form of pornography, which - while unexpected - was very much appreciated.
We're willing to be you missed more than a fair share of these on your first playthrough. We certainly did, and it gives another reason to go back and experience the story all over again while having your eyes peeled for all those neat little things Naughty Dog tucked away.
Note: Spoilers for The Last of Us Part II are peppered throughout this article. We'd highly recommend finishing the game before you delve in, as there's no way of discussing some things without spoiling the plot.
