An ad for Telltale's The Walking Dead or Survival Instinct would have made more sense.

Actually it's pretty smart marketing because like The Walking Dead, The last of us deals with a post apocalyptic setting and the characters have to fight of zombies and infected people. Their aiming the game at an appropriate audience.

Yeah I know I said it would make "more sense" to advertise those two not that The Last of Us made no sense!

An advert for any product would make sense, as a huge number of viewers will be present during the finale to the season.

Heresy :)

Seriously I normally hate zombie films/shows/games but TWD TV show is brilliant and if you think about it is more about the people anyway just set in a zombie apocalypse scenario.

No,mate it's boring.Seen the first two series(or seasons) on Five in the UK.The Second series started off OK,but stuck on that guy's property for the whole thing.I don't mind a bit of character background,but too much relationship tosh,little action,I'll give it one more chance,if the third series comes here.Maybe.

Fair enough, horses for courses. Still I can't help but think you're missing the point of the show.

I'm confused, I haven't seen GoT yet so I can't say I favour it. I have however seen TWD and I didn't enjoy it, found it boring, not knocking it though as others enjoy it.

What's my nationality got to do with it?
