Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to play The Last of Us yet, but honestly it doesn’t seem like a game I want to play. I mean, yeah, it looks like it is a game that has a great narrative, strong characters and great atmosphere, but I feel like it is missing something that I feel all games should have. What’s that? There are phone-sex hotlines in the game? That was it. That is the ingredient that I believe should be in every great gaming masterpiece. Naughty Dog, I’m buying your game!

On serious note, apparently some of the phone numbers on the bulletin boards in The Last of Us that are supposed to be for pest control are actually real-world phone-sex hotlines.

“That was an artist’s mistake,” creative director Neil Druckmann said. “What happened was, they put some phone numbers in the game and then they thought they could just change the area code to 555, then it’s invalid because it’s what they do in movies. But I guess that doesn’t work when you have a 1-800 in front of it.”

“We’re now working to take it out,” he added. “It was just an honest mistake.”

Also, I really need my pay this week Andy. I’m a little in debt, and it’s not because I spent three hours on a phone-sex hot line. That would be silly and incredibly sad of me.
