A reader examines the morality of Nathan Drake and asks whether the higher standards he’s held to is proof of how good a character he is.
Video games often have a hero or a villain. Nathan Drake from the popular Uncharted series is pitched as the hero of the piece, a likeable chap who’s witty, adventurous and has biometrics not too dissimilar to the average man. So, why is he so commonly referred to as a moral-less man intent on killing all those in his way? Journalists and gamers alike all seem to have referred to the fact that his moral compass is awry when it comes to his kill count.
