If you haven’t played The Last of Us yet, know that there are spoilers for the game’s opening scene here. If you’ve played it though, you can watch some elders react to our 2013 Game of the Year’s first moments.

In the video below, a number of elders try their hand at Naughty Dog’s most recent title. What’s interesting is how so few of them know how to handle a game with exposition.

The payoff is in the second half of the video as the infected start to take over the city streets. For those that have played it, you were probably affected by what happens to Joel and Sarah at the conclusion of the prologue.

These players aren’t as conditioned to interactive drama, and share some astute observations after they put the controllers down. For more, you can check out other React videos, including the same elders playing Five Nights at Freddy’s and Grand Theft Auto V and teens playing Mega Man.
