Last of Us Home Screen Eerily Matches Player's Real Window

A fan of Naughty Dog classic The Last of Us has discovered that their own window almost exactly matches the window seen in the game's title menu. The game opens with a menu screen showing an open window with plants working their way through into the property. While a poignant image in itself, it becomes a lot eerier if it happens to align with windows that players have in their real-life homes. The Last of Us series has been praised for its graphics and realism, but the developers probably didn't intend for it to go this far.

The Last of Us first released for PlayStation 3 back in 2013. The game was then followed up with DLC in 2014, and was remastered for the PS4 later that year. In 2020 the series expanded with The Last of Us Part 2, which has come to be recognized as one of the most controversial video games of all time, gaining notoriety after the story leaked shortly before the game hit store shelves. The leak revealed the death of a major character, heavily altering the experience of playing the game for the first time. Various characters also caused controversy, with an overwhelming number of players disliking the new character Abby. The Last of Us 2's inclusion of trans character Lev was also a noteworthy inclusion.

Reddit user leedavis1987 has shared an eerie photo of them playing the first The Last of Us game, only to discover that the in-game menu is almost an exact replica of their own. In the post, the image shows the real-world window lining up exactly with the one on the television screen, creating an optical illusion that blends the screen and window together. While the window panes in the game are in a slightly different formation, it appears as though the frame itself shares the exact same dimensions as in the Naughty Dog title screen. Fans have been more than impressed with the strange image, with the post receiving over 26 thousand upvotes at the time of writing.

Thankfully the player doesn't have to worry about the strange coincidence repeating with the second game, which opens with a boat floating on dark waters rather than something a little closer to home. Despite controversies over The Last of Us Part 2, the series is one of the most successful of all time, and while many players were disappointed in the sequel the critics were not. The Last of Us Part 2 has won more awards than any video game in history, beating out even the CD Projekt Red classic, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The first game is now being adapted into an HBO TV series, consisting of 10 episodes. The cast includes Game of Thrones stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, and Bella Ramsey as Ellie.

That's not all for fans of the series, as it's believed a remake of the original The Last of Us is in the works at Naughty Dog. While unconfirmed, many gamers believe the title isn't in need of a remake, despite it now being two console generations old. Though neither Naughty Dog nor Sony have confirmed the rumors, they come from notable industry insider Jason Schreier, making them likely to have at least a grain of truth. A remake of The Last of Us created in TLOU2's engine and utilizing the power of PS5 could be something truly special, but many believe Naughty Dog should be developing something new instead. If The Last of Us really is getting a PS5 remake, the Reddit user's window phenomenon could get even more realistic with new-gen graphics.
