The Last of Us is a fantastic game, which unfortunately is exclusive to the PlayStation platform, seeing it's original release on PS3, with a later re-release on the PS4, and is still a hugely popular choice for players looking for some post-apocalyptic storytelling of epic proportions. 

Interestingly, though, there's a fairly active modding scene for this game, despite it's console-only roots, and one modder, Freako, has managed to make Tess playable during her final moments.

Spoiler alert, by the way.

As you can see, the mod allows the player to control Tess, complete with new animations, and take down the enemies, even allowing her to take down more than the two she usually kills in the normal cutscene. The only downside? You can't survive, you have to let Tess die, otherwise the game crashes or glitches out pretty badly.

The video also includes an explanation of how it all works, so it's pretty interesting to watch, but as always with console modding, if you do decide to try this at home, don't say we didn't warn you If things go wrong down the line.

Never thought someone will mod in something like this on The Last of Us. Personally, I wouldn't lose sleep to try this, but this is still pretty cool (and touching) nonetheless.
