Did you ever notice:
Hey, did you guys ever notice that in the last of us Ellie says to Sam: Im scared of being alone? Well later in the game when Joel gets hurt he is incapable of helping himself its skips ahead in time. That skip is when you play the other game: The last of us left behind. Now, Ellie has to go off on her own. She is facing her fear of being alone against the infected and the survivors. So, did you notice that Ellie faces her fear of being alone? Or do you think that her fears came true. Also did you notice that there are giraffes all throughout the game? Not just that one scene? Some examples are: in Sarah's room, the sewers, the hospital.
