Do you remember how sad you were when The Last of Us ended? After hours of surviving as a team your new best friends were suddenly gone forever. The banter, the jokes, and close calls with infected were done forever. The only good thing is that the story isn’t over, and that TLOU2 is on the way. We here at HEY YOU VIDEO GAME! are waiting patiently for it’s arrival, but in the meantime we put together a list of must-have merchandise for you or a gift for the Last of Us fan in your life.
1. This Awesome Backpack that’s Just Like The One Ellie Had
Be as cool and hip as Ellie with this backpack. It’s a usable replica of the backpack that carried all her survival gear. Sorry it doesn’t come with bricks, firefly pendants, or joke books.
2. Ridiculously Cool Comic Book Series on The Last of Us
The comic book The Last of Us: American Dreams is a prelude story to the game.
The story is set before Joel arrives, and helps flesh out the relationship between Ellie and Marlene. In addition, the story shows the beginning of Ellie’s friendship with Riley. It’s a beautifully drawn comic that will add more depth to the Last of Us universe.
3. Show Off Your Love for TLOU Hang a Poster In Your Gaming Room’
This 24″ by 36″ poster is perfect for someone to put wherever they game. People hang posters of their favorite bands, but why not a poster of their favorite video game?
4. These Super Fun (and can we say cute?) Figurines
These 3″ vinyl figures of Joel and Ellie are wonderful. Joel looks like he’s about to brick a clicker, and Ellie has a look of worry. Any fan of The Last of Us would enjoy these.
5. This iPhone Case of Ellie and Joel
Bring Ellie and Joel wherever you go! Well, as long as you have your phone with you. 🙂
6. This OMG! It’s So CUTE! Plush Giraffe
I can’t see a giraffe without thinking of the beautiful scene in The Last of Us that had them roaming through the city. Grab this cute giraffe as a reminder that there’s good in this world.
7. Rep Your Favorite Game With This Great T-Shirt
This well designed T-Shirt will let others know that you’re truly a true fan of The Last of us. It looks good, you’ll look good, win-win all around.
8. Ellie’s Tattoo! Don’t Worry It’s Temporary!
In The Last of Us 2 you get a quick clip of Ellie playing the guitar, and you can see that she has a tattoo on her arm. Not wanting to get the permanent tattoo…yet? Have fun with this one!
9. This Freaking Awesome Silk Poster
This 24″ by 36″ silk fabric poster is everything we want and more.
10. Another Classic Naughty Dog Game – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
Naughty Dog is the company who created the beloved The Last of Us game, and they’re also the creator the Uncharted video game series. If you (or a friend) loved The Last of Us you’ll get a kick out of their newest Uncharted game. It has a very similar game play, but the feel of the game is much less dark (no infected, clickers, zombie-ish characters).
11. Listen to the Sweet Sweet Music of the Last of Us on Vinyl
Isn’t the music of the Last of Us incredible? Personally I listen to the music of Gustavo Santaolalla on Spotify, but if you really want to hear the nuances of the soundtrack you can get this vinyl.
12. The Art Book That Your Coffee Table Needs
Get this item as a gift, because any true fan of The Last of Us will appreciate it! The art of The Last of Us is so good, and it deserves to be shown off. This book shows concept art, landscapes, and character design. Naughty Dog outdid themselves with this game.
13. Be Prepared for the Worst. An Urban Survival Bug Out Bag for Two
Joel left his home immediately when the infection hit. There wasn’t time to pack, but you can be ready. This Survival Bag has food and supplies for two people. When your neighbor turns infected and you’ve got to rush out of the home you can now be prepared.
14. This Rad Design of Ellie Hunting T-Shirt
This is the perfect The Last of Us Gift for the fashion minded. Not only was this a fun moment in the Last of Us game, but it looks awesome on a T-Shirt.
15. Be a Badass like Ellie and Get This Starter Archery Kit
One of the best memories I have from The Last of Us is playing as Ellie with her bow. It was fun hunting the caribou, and even more fun killing infected with it. Any The Last of Us Fan will appreciate receiving a starter archery kit so that they can be as badass as Ellie.
16. This Plush Brick.
You won’t be hurting anyone with this thing, but this gift is sure to give any TLOU player a laugh or two.
17. Join the Fireflies and Wear This Hat
The Fireflies would never wear a hat like this, because it’d be a target. You can still be cool and wear this hat with their logo on it though.
18. Learn How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse With This Book
This book will give you the information you need for when the world becomes infected. It covers tactics, defense strategies, long-term sieges, and locations that are perfect for holding out in. Joel and Ellie should be co-authors of this book.
19. Join the Firefly Resistance and RISE up with This T-Shirt
Marlene had such high hopes for the Fireflies and humanity, but she didn’t know the depths of Joel’s love for Ellie. Join the upRISING with this fun t-shirt.
20. This The Last of Us Gift Says It All. A Joke Book
Ellie has a whole collection of terribly bad jokes (or amazing if you like super punny jokes). Ellie says at one moment, “I used to be addicted to soap, but I’m clean now.” Memorize a few jokes of your own with this joke book.
21. Take Notes With This Last of Us Journal
Take notes on your adventures with this The Last of Us Themed Journal. Open it up and scribble down ideas, thoughts, and notes.
