Video: The Last of Us... if its characters were posh Brits

Hello and welcome to a brand new video feature here on GamesRadar. We like to call it 'The Posh British Version'. It's where the GamesRadar UK team take well-known scenes from your favourite games and imagine what they'd sound like if all the characters were over-the-top, posh, British aristocrats. Sounds odd--trust us, it just works... incredibly well.

In this first video we take the opening scenes of The Last of Us, and re-dub all the characters to imagine that they're not actually fleeing from a world-ending fungal apocalypse, but instead that they're all rather late for the opera. Again--yes--it sounds crazy, but we're confident that you'll love the video.

Want more? Let us know in the comments and we shall make it so. Also, if you have any suggestions for the games you'd like to see with a Posh British Version, please make some suggestions.

    This was hilarious, I think you may need subtitles and a glossary for our American cousins though.

    Hmm... subtitles could be pretty funny actually. Good suggestion.

    Started barely interested, was almost captivated.. then realised very suddenly that this is not just an incredibly weak satire of RP but an overall awfull insult to the Last of Us. God save us from this tripe disguised as content.

    All said and done, i did enjoy it though. I'm just a general miserablist bastard who never managed to progress past the undead parish in Dark Souls and who hates everything game related. That fucking boar thing. bollocks. I don't care if it takes a stab up the arse.. it's unfair and un-Democratic. Non-sense and NOT- BRITISH.

    You can lure the boar back beyond the steps and safely do a plunging attack on him from an adjacent ledge where he can't get to you. Then repeat as necessary depending on your weapon. Be wary, though, he may still be able to hit you when you're standing on the ledge at the end of his charging attack (when we swings his horns upwards dramatically), and very rarely walk onto the ledge where it meets the top of the steps and chase you into the corner unless you can jump off in time. Also keep in mind that his charging attack can take out other undead warriors that are in his way, which is nice.

    That was hilarious! Every time I think someone had a great line it's followed by something else immediately that's keeps me laughing. Looking forward to there being as many of these as possible! "Ummm I'm afraid it doesn't really work like that.... um when you've been caught balls deep in a barmaid" xD "Daddy, Uncle Roland's being a bastard!"

    I loved Uncle Roland's voice, who voiced him? Also: "And his head's fallen off on the floor." "Oh, don't be (unintelligible syllable starting with r), I'll get Jeffery to sort it out in the morning... he's got plenty of experience, I mean you've been to my parties, you know how it usually turn out, he'll be fine." "Stand-up fellow, that Jeffrey..." "Absolute blinder."

    Somehow I'm not surprised that Justin was voicing the little girl :P Please do more of these!
  • GR_JustinTowell - July 5, 2013 8:32 a.m.

    Andy *promises* me the children/women will be rotated each time. Looking forward to hearing Dave's impression of a little girl... ;)
  • GR_AndyHartup - July 5, 2013 8:35 a.m.

    That was before you turned in such a great performance in this video... ;-) I jest. Yes, we'll rotate them. I do a good impression of an elderly posh lady.

    Good show, my dear fellow.
  • antiAntag0nist - July 5, 2013 7:05 a.m.

  • g1rldraco7 - July 5, 2013 5:29 a.m.
