Ned Stark’s a traditional kind of sap--er, guy--who fights for truth, justice, and the Westrosian Way. However, after he starts serving as the king's right hand man, things get complicated, and it becomes harder to make the honorable choice when it puts everything he cares about at risk. That's why Ned might find something compelling in The Last of Us.
Joel’s pretty much everything Ned hates: vicious, opportunistic, and back-stabbing. Ned would probably throw the controller down in disgust if it wasn't for the game’s opening, where he could undoubtedly sympathize with the way Joel loses a loved one. A few more hours and it starts to look like Joel and Ned have a lot in common--average guys in the thick of disaster, who want to do good and take care of their families while it becomes impossible to manage both. Ned might be mad when he's forced to make the dishonorable decision at the game’s end, but it would be a temporary anger. After all, his tune changes once he’s put in that spot himself.
