The Last of Us fan LookNooks has created a bookshelf inspired by the iconic giraffe scene from the game. It showcases attention to detail and captures the immersive nature of the scene.
The giraffe scene provided a peaceful moment for Joel and Ellie, where they could talk about their future plans and symbolized hope for a better life.
The Last of Us franchise has had a profound impact on its dedicated fan base and has inspired various artworks and adaptations. New games and a second season of the HBO series are in the works.
A The Last of Us fan has built a bookshelf inspired by one of the most iconic scenes in the game. Naughty Dog's title is best known for redefining the zombie genre through its portrayal of the infected and the relationships between the characters.
First released in 2013, The Last of Us revolves around Joel and Ellie as they travel through post-apocalyptic America, facing off against Cordyceps-infected cannibals. Aside from the breathtaking action, many players felt a connection to the relationship between Joel and Ellie, described as a kind of father and daughter, and recalled other heartwarming moments within the game's story.
The most iconic scene in The Last of Us was when Joel and Ellie encountered a herd of wild giraffes running through Salt Lake City. In this scene, Ellie could be seen excitedly petting a giraffe while Joel watched. It signaled a peaceful moment after an intense mission in the previous chapter. The Last of Us fan LookNooks decided to immortalize this scene by creating a small bookshelf with a diorama of the giraffe peering into a building. In a Reddit post, they showcased different angles of the shelf, featuring the miniature giraffe, the plants used to recreate the scene, and the logos of The Last of Us and the Fireflies on one side.
In the comments, many fans of The Last of Us praised LookNooks' creation and even asked if they could order one for their own space. One person said that the design of the bookshelf was like "a glimpse into another world" and added that the artist had successfully managed to make the recreation of the scene immersive.
The giraffe scene in The Last of Us captured the hearts of many fans because it served as a respite before the final act of the game. It also provided Joel and Ellie with an opportunity to talk about their future plans after fulfilling their mission, hoping to continue their lives as freely as the giraffes.
The Last of Us has gained a dedicated fan base for over a decade, especially after the release of the HBO series adaptation featuring Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie. For this reason, many have paid tribute to the series with various artworks, such as a charcoal drawing that a fan of The Last of Us invested 300 hours in. It simply demonstrates the impact the franchise has had on people, and it will continue to make an impression as new The Last of Us games are reportedly in the works, with the second season of the HBO series already on the horizon.
The Last of Us Part 1 is now available for PC and PS5.
