Mysterious videogame trailer: What is 'The Last of Us'?

Spike TV’s Videogame Awards air this Saturday, but buzz is already building about the fact that the ceremony will feature first looks at some new videogame properties. BioWare – the Canadian super-geniuses behind Mass Effect and Dragon Age – will be teasing their new series, which may or may not be a new version of Command & Conquer. Epic Games’ Cliff Bleszinski has already been teasing a new venture from the Gears of War gurus. (According to his Twitter feed, it will not feature space marines, which already makes it 25% more original.) But most intriguing of all is a mysterious 45-second teaser tweeted by Spike TV host Geoff Keighley which appears to be a post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive. The video cuts in lots of real-life riot footage along with a narration that mournfully describes a world gone by: “The greasy smell of a downtown hot dog, the sound of a plane flying overhead…all gone.” Apparently, there used to be a link to an official website, lastofus.com, which featured footage of an ant; that website has since disappeared. In conclusion, we don’t know anything about this game, and it already sounds better than Driver: San Francisco. Watch the teaser below:
