Naughty Dog’s action-packed adventure video game continues to earn awards over six years since its initial release. A new poll has emerged from the official PlayStation Blog, with The Last of Us ranking top for the best game of the decade.

The Last of Us launched on June 14th, 2013. The community welcomed the award-winning title with open arms, so much so that it was eventually remastered on PlayStation 4.
