The Violence Issue in Tomb Raider & Uncharted

In Uncharted we are presented with Nathan Drake, a contemporary, happy go lucky adventurer cut from the same cloth as Indiana Jones. He’s a man that rubs shoulders with a lot of morally questionable characters, including, at times, his own surrogate father, Sully. Despite the gray area he inhabits on the ethical spectrum, he’s a man that cares, a man that is capable of love, kindness and doing the right thing. That’s the story we get anyway, and that’s the story that reliably plays out in cut scenes as Drake struggles to protect his friends, his romantic interest, and even just the sanctity of a cursed tomb or some other archaeological site.

Violence is very grounded in reality, life is not all flowers and giggles. With that said, some games are just borderline sadistic.

USA was born on violence, and continues it today, everyday. Who cares what's in a game? there is violence in life, movies, games and books. What we eat is murdered and our whole world is based on it. Jesus, I wish this would stop coming up. If you didn't have the shooting inbetween, there wouldn't be much to do in the game.

idk why you got so many disagrees. People who find violence in media abrasive obviously didn't get spanked enough when they were little.

These games seem kinda reasonable on violence FOR games.

Problem is we find the criticisers of video games are unwilling to try and understand the difference on what isn't and is too violent in games and draw up the comparison with movies, thinking it shows that they have complete knowledge on what they're talking about.

Obviously this isn't one of those articles but these games aren't exactly the go to games for pure violence or to prove games are too violent.

Oh god people die in video games in a graphic manner.

Man... You know, I just read a story about a guy who got his head lopped off in a car accident that killed 6 others. Who would have thought people die like that. I mean I'd have thought they'd just, respawn.

They should go out with each other and go on an adventure. I'd imagine a very argumentative, selfish, competitive relationship.

It would be absolutely perfect... :)

Now that would be a perfect game IMO. Even if one of them just made a cameo in the others game would just be perfect. I can just imagine the bantering back and forth between the two.

Both are strolling through some jungle tomb looking for the same artifact when they happen upon each other.

Nathan: Hey, Who the Hell are you, and on second thought, why haven't I ever met you before.

Lara( in her British voice) : I'm Lara, Lara Croft.

Nathan: You mean Lara Croft, the billionair famed explorer and relic hunter. Oh, wanna meet me down at the local tavern in say one hour for a drink? I just have one small thing I have to do first.

Lara: Don't you think you should tell me your name first. I don't even know you.

Nathan: Oh yeah, I'm Nathan Drake. Treasure hunting extraordinaire.

Lara: Never heard of ya Mr. Drake. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a relic to get. I think I'll skip the drink, but you go on ahead.
