Could an Uncharted Prequel Work?

After many adventures through out the years together, Sully and Nate have some great stories to tell. Great stories can make for some great plot lines. A prequel could work well within the Uncharted universe. (Naughty Dog, PS3, PS4, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Uncharted Trilogy)

Of course, I bet there was loads of adventures before the search for El Dorado.

How did Drake meet Flynn and Chloe, what was his first big adventure.

Then you have Sully who has loads of stories to tell, maybe we'd get a reference to when he brought a hooker to church

The only problem is that you wouldn't see Elena unless they do a different type of game featuring her but I can't imagine what that could be.

Drake was introduced to Chloe by Flynn at the very beginning of Uncharted 2. She's a treasure hunter just like Drake.
Root  +   984d ago
If you've actually played it then you'll know they already have a history together....probably a romantic one.
sloth3395  +   984d ago
Drake already knew Chloe before Flynn knew here you should play the game again and you might notice them talking behind Flynn's back

And U3 had a lot of back story, so a prequel wouldn't be a stretch. I love Uncharted, so I'd take a prequel.
admiralvic  +   984d ago
Yup. Uncharted isn't exactly linear, so they can constantly add adventures in the past or future with little to no problem. Even if Drake is an issue, they could always shift focus to Sully or maybe whomever trained Sully (assuming there is someone) to even another hunter that might have some sort of connection to the past or future story.
Reverent  +   984d ago
I honestly think a prequel with a younger Sully would be amazing. I mean, in Uncharted 3, you learn that Sully clearly has a background working with "less than heroic" groups of treasure hunters. I really think it could work well. Plus, if they did that, it wouldn't even really feel like a prequel.

Read the comic man but i'm not sure if it was the book or the comic that follows the uncharted story.I'm pretty sure it's the 6 comics that follow the story but anyway he meets chloe in it for the frist time. There pretty good and i'm sure you would like it being and uncharted fan.
joab777  +   984d ago
It could definitely work but it cant be done as an U3 rehash to make money. It would be great as next gen launch title. I am down. It may be hard seeing as we saw their origin in U3.
Knushwood Butt  +   984d ago
I'd like to see a game with Sully as the main character.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
Stupid article.
NerdBite  +   984d ago
No need to call the article stupid, when it's just someone else's opinion. Also I already said this, but I feel I should say it again.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss isn't necessarily a prequel.

"The game is set before the events of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but Naughty Dog have made the distinction that it is not necessarily a "prequel", because the events do not lead directly into Drake's Fortune."

Have a good day

as much as I love for another Uncharted
a prequel means no ELENA! I LOVE ELENA and her absence from GA was...I don't know...just doesn't feel "right"!

I care for Drake and Elena and I want them to continue their adventure together...not without each other! or...I just need help!
rainslacker  +   983d ago
The nice thing about Uncharted stories is that they are all independent of one another, and you don't have to play one to understand the others. They have a lot of references to the previous titles, but it's written well enough to explain who's who. For the most part you could play them in any order, and outside the Drake/Elena romance thing it would be pretty coherent.

Either way I wouldn't mind seeing a Tomb Raider'esque origin story.:) Although they did kind of do that in UC3.
Magnus  +   984d ago
I'd buy it and play it if there was.
wishingW3L  +   984d ago
Golden Abyss is a pre-quel.
NerdBite  +   984d ago
Not necessarily. The game is set before the events of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but Naughty Dog have made the distinction that it is not necessarily a "prequel", because the events do not lead directly into Drake's Fortune.

I'm a huge Uncharted fan, but I really don't want a prequel. Unless maybe it was Sully in his youth
timmyp53  +   984d ago
That actually sounds really interesting. I loved the flashbacks in U3. A game following a young Sully would be sick.
plaZeHD  +   983d ago
But sucks that Uncharted 3's story doesn't make any sense at all.
timmyp53  +   983d ago
First game's story was the best in my opinion. I think people play it for action and amazing set pieces now.
Number-Nine  +   984d ago
uc3 kinda had a prequelness to it when he first met sully. id like if they did it that way again.

Ive just started playing tomb raider & from the get go an hour into the game so far. If u enjoy uncharted and assasins creed that is exactly how the new tomb raider feels like. I think its a great direction for the tomb raider series.

Now a prequal for uncharted would be awesome & if naughty dog has been paying attention to reviews about tomb raider, I think its safe to say a prequal of uncharted will BLOW US AWAY. That is just how naughty dog would respond to critics saying tomb raider is better then uncharted. Mark my words the next uncharted game will be BEYOND our expectations. Thats just how much FAITH I have in naughty dog, and their track record speaks for itself. Cant wait until e3.

Edit: GamerEuphoria I didnt say to copy tomb raider, I just meant naughty dog would PUSH it even further with what we see now.

Alot of tomb raider fans disagree with me even though I havent said 1 bad thing about tomb raider lol.

If they did it like Tomb Raider then it wouldn't be Uncharted
smashcrashbash  +   984d ago
Why should they be paying attention to the chaos causing reviewers who just want to stir us all up. Their game already got GOTY,high scores and praise and several awards and Tomb Raider hasn't even gotten any of those yet.o why should they start being like tomb Raider when it hasn't even been shown to surpass Uncharted?
0pie  +   984d ago
why a prequel. It doesnt have any sense since its not really the kind of game with a story that have any link with other games...
NerdBite  +   984d ago
Did you read the article? The Uncharted game's all have their own separate stories. The prequel would just be another separate story in the Uncharted universe. A prequel would be interesting, because we could see Nathan's frist adventures with Sully.
Conzul  +   984d ago
No. Prequels suck.
Kran  +   984d ago
Kind of. Golden Abyss remember.

And we kinda know about Drake's origins anyway. It was told in 3.
vork77  +   984d ago
its called bioshock infinite
CEOSteveBallmer  +   983d ago
Ahmmm YES!!?? havent this guy played golden abyss?? Its a prequel if the author doesnt know yet.
InTheLab  +   983d ago
No more prequels please. Lets just move on.
SpinalRemains138  +   983d ago
Ive already played Golden Abyss over a year ago.
ginsunuva  +   983d ago
We need a vita game that's teenage-drake only.
stefan771  +   983d ago
A prequel could work
