The Last Of Us is without a doubt one of the most influential games of all time. So maybe it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that it was all but quoted in a recent episode of Game of Thrones.
The quotation came during the first episode of season 7, titled “Dragonstone,” which premiered on July 16th, 2017. At about 22:30, you can hear Jaime Lannister tell his sister Cersei, “We’re the last of us.”
Just a coincidence, right? Actually, Game of Thrones producer and writer David Benioff has reportedly confirmed that this was a direct, intentional reference. It is actually Game of Thrones’ little nod to the fact that loads of fans think that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, looks a lot like Joel in The Last Of Us.
If for whatever reason you still haven’t played The Last Of Us, this is the time! You can snag a pretty sweet deal right now on the original for PS3 or the remaster for PS4, and catch up just in time for the upcoming sequel!
