I thought it was mainly the BBC Documentary?

The BBC documentary gave them the premise and the films gave them the approach.

Bruce and Neil have said that the parts of Uncharted 2 where Drake and Tenzin have to co-ordinate through a language barrier to get through the gameplay segments, and the bond is formed through this gameplay, is what inspired them to make an entire game about the bond between 2 characters.

Then there's BBC's Planet Earth documentary featuring the Cordyceps fungus in ants, which was the concept.

Then there's the literature and cinema they've been inspired by: No Country for Old Men, The Road, Children of Men, I Am Legend, 28 Days Later, City of Thieves.
