yeah, you figured it out, that's the plot
Did you miss part about those guys trying to kill them? It's post apocalyptic setting, and he's protecting her. If you've ever seen THE Road (great film folks ) then you get the sense of how brutal and desperate life could be in those settings.
also, how is the mass killings of halo, black ops, gears of war, uncharted etc etc any less pointless ??
halo, gears of war, black ops so on, are war games, games set in the battlefield, this game seems to be set in a world long after a massive disaster, where very few people survived, why would the only remaining people wish to kill each other on sight?, don't get me wrong the game looks stunning, but why go to all the effort of making a believable detailed world, with engaging characters then making the plot like an cheesy 80s die hard style movie,
they seem to be making there way to a bridge in the distance, ok fair enough, lets say you're him, you go into that building and hear people in there, you'd turn around and walk straight back out, find a safer way not decide you're going to shoot several men in the face, i do like a bit of face shooting, but why must every game involve face shooting? you almost expect it now, every game has to have you kill something or someone, the fact people think its strange i am pointing it out says more about gamers than games, does killing hundreds of people in lots of different ways really add much to the gaming experience? i don't know that it really does, something to think about
not having a go at anyone on here just quoting what you said because of the shooters you mentioned
