“The Uncharted series is dead.” This was one of the many thoughts that crossed my mind after playing through Remember Me, Uncharted 3, and The Last of Us back-to-back-to-back.
Not really, they are both equally amazing they just are different genres. Oh but Remember Me...LOL, yeah whatever man.
Yea remember me was a major flop , heck i enjoyed deadpool more than that crap
See i like what they did with Deadpool just needed a bit of more refined gameplay IMO.
I hear Deadpool had clunky controls, but the translation of the character was spot on; if so, a simple update could make that game a classic.
It's already hit bargain bin price, I wonder why.
Remember Me had potential, but it fell short on all accounts of being a truly great game. The story was OK, but never really keeps you at the edge of your seat wanting more. The gameplay and remixing minigame are interesting at first, but become "meh" about halfway through the game because of too much of one and too little of the other. In all, Rememmber Me ironically isn't very memorable. It's just an OK game - it's worth playing because it is something different and a change of pace from the norm, but it doesn't go far enough to shake the foundations of its genre(s) and have you walk away wowed and astonished. Last of Us's change to its genre is the shift in focus to concentrate more on the characters (something lacking in many "survival" games - I'm avoiding the word "zombie" for a more general classification) and having the characters drive the story and not the story drive the characters. Also, the characters don't feel fake or unrealistic. Their behaviors and emotions are what you'd expect of anyone thrown into that kind of situation, as unrealistic as the situation may be. Naughty Dog's strengths truly lie in their knack for story writing. Uncharted, despite its repetitive gameplay, had some very well written characters and a narrative that kept you playing. The Last of Us was no different except for (in my opinion) having a better narrative; the acting was brilliant in both. The mark of a good game is one that keeps you wanting more. It one that you can't put down because you want to know what happens next. You want to keep going until the bitter end. Even better is one that gives you all of this but makes you want to play again and again and again.
What are the official sales numbers?
lol the article writer tried to slip remeber me in there and thought we wouldnt notice because of the awesomeness of the last of us.
lol It would make sense if he just said The Last of Us and Naughty Dog were planning a sequel right now but adding Remember Me...yea... It was like, "hmmm, I have this great article with a couple good points, but let's add Remember Me to get a few extra hits from people who noticed it." lol Uncharted and The Last of Us are great games, they can both exist with each other. Especially since they're both the highest rated games on the PS3 and Naughty Dog fans loved both of them.
the only thing Remember Me killed is its own potential for a sequel!
I don't know what this guy is talking about. If Naught dog announces a new uncharted at gamescon, I will be pretty happy.
I will be over the moon :D ! We all know its coming !!!!!
ha haa seriously . . i mean can i do some of the epic things form Uncharted series in the Last of Us? freaking fanboys
Lol hell no Remember me is just an average game TLOU is made by ND so I am pretty sure next UC game will be nothing short of amazing if they decide to do one or maybe they will do a new IP Remember me's name shouldn't even be used in the same sentence as uncharted. No wonder why Sony let the Game go to capcom
Equally amazing? I think not. The Last of Us was on an entirely different artistic level versus Uncharted.
Maybe you should play some Uncharted before speaking. I have all 3 uncharted games platinumed but after I finished the last of us once, I don't even care to bother to go back and play it a second time. Uncharted >>>>>>>&g t;x3747383821928>>>> ;TLOU. That is my opinion of course.
Personally I still think Uncharted 2 is the best game of this gen. TLOU is great, but UC2 is better, imho.
my friend's sister-in-law makes $82/hr on the computer. She has been without a job for 9 months but last month her income was $15374 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more here .... http://Pro76.com
Who give a fuck about your sister earning LOL
“The Uncharted series is dead.” in your dreams...
Exactly, it's a completely different kind of game. The only thing I will say is that the next Uncharted game (if there is one) will only benefit from the experience that ND had making TLOU.
I thought they were made by two different teams?
You do know that ND has two teams right? The Uncharted team didn't work much on The Last of Us.
@fourOeightshark Actually the uncharted team did have some people sent over to the last of us team to help finish the last of us.
IMightBeRetarded But will they go back when they're done? ;)
@all saying another team worked on Uncharted. Yes but what does that matter? I'm a software developer and we have many teams working on different things in my job but we all share/use the same procedures, tech, etc. Every software job does.
@IMightBeRetarded That's why i said they "didn't work much" on it.
@midnytRain Yes. They went back to whatever project they had going on once they were done with their work on the last of us.
IMightBeRetarded Wait, so the TLOU team was only a temporary thing?
lol didn't you submit the article?
Doesn't mean he wrote it. Lol
Although I think TLOU was a great game, I would put Uncharted 2 ahead of it.
I would put every Uncharted ahead of it. TLOU is a good game but Uncharted is just way better. I honestly don't see what others see in this game. Do people really like to hide this much?
Dont know bout that one mate, i mean yeah the last of us is fantastic but so is the uncharted series, they could make a new one of either and i would buy it day one. What i really want though is a new jak and daxter, i loved those games and would love to see one on the ps4, i think the teams ae big enough now to be able to work on this. I could just be wishfully thinking.
A new Jak and Daxter would be amazing! I need to get around to buying the trilogy collection at some point.
Yeah had to get that, so far i have gone through the first and most of the way through the second, still as good as they were.
TLOU is absolutely incredible as it's a 'once-in-a-generation' experience. This is comparable to Resident Evil 2 and 4 in terms of greatness.
Ugh, please don't make me remember Remember Me... Also, the Uncharted series dead? As if.
let's w8 for VGA 2013 :)
Do let's :)
Wow what a stupid article! Uncharted and the last of us can easily coexist, the gameplay/experience/ are different enough. Remember me? Seriously dude!
Uncharted is a teenage game ! The Last of Us is the most mature game ever ! the difference is huge ! But remember me is a JOKE !
I absolutely love The Last Of Us, but Uncharted isn't a game for teenagers. Sure, teenagers probably enjoyed the hell out of it but I'm close to 30 and consider Uncharted 2 one of the best games I've ever played. That's like saying Indiana Jones is only for kids when everyone knows that the fanbase of the Indiana Jones films are closer to middle-aged men. Both games can coexist because they're two vastly different games set in vastly different universes.
Apples and Oranges - No WAY is the Uncharted series dead, but as a series evolves it must adapt to innovate whilst keeping the core that makes any series unique. I fully believe that Naughty Dog will be able to up the ante with Uncharted 4, using their experience developed over the last seventeen years. (As for uncharted being for teens, I couldn’t disagree more. Although TLOU is a darker and more sombre piece, that's not what Uncharted is focusing on, and its this variety that'll guarantee I buy it!- I'm heading into my late thirties and when the next UC is released its a must buy for me with no hesitation!)
I'm 29 this month and i love Uncharted series. Don't understand where the hell Walker get the idea that Uncharted is a teenage game -_-
He was talking about the rating
Don't know if I should feel bad cause they actually thought Remember Me was special... or just smart click bait
This bloke has definitely smoked too much weed. Open your curtains, go outside its a beautiful day
Speaking of weed *packs a bowl* :P
Remember me >>>>>>> dog poop >>>>>>unchar ted >>>>> last of us
in terms of smell, right? Remember me does smell worst than dog poop LOL!
Meanwhile, the Wii U is looking like a third wheel.
not sure if your trolling or don't know the difference between < and >
Uncharted is a great series for a number of reasons. The Last of Us completely surpassed my expectations and blew me away as one of the most mature games I've ever played. I don't mean mature solely in terms of graphic content, but how the game was written, designed and executed. You're not going to see another game like The Last of Us for a long, LONG time. It tramples on Uncharted in almost every possible manner, but that doesn't mean Uncharted 4 won't be a fantastic experience, in a completely different way to The Last of Us. Remember Me is a good game, but has nothing on Uncharted. The art design is excellent and it's more open in nature, but everything else just cannot compare.
Wow, the media just can't give credit where its due. There always has to be like a backhanded compliment thrown in the mix when talking about successful titles. Naughty Dog raised the bar this gen. They proved it with Uncharted and just in case somebidy didn't get the memo, they did it again with the last of us. Why is that so hard to admit?
LOL @ Remember Me killing anything.
Saving a click and just voting the article down.
remember me? I enjoyed the game for what is was, but saying that it killed uncharted, is just wishful dreaming
the only thing that Remember me killed is CAPCOM's reputation and their games quality such a shame one of my favorite gaming company to worst in this gen
For those who don't want to give this a hit, the author's argument is that Remember Me sucks, and therefore Uncharted 3 sucks too. No, that doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's his argument in a nutshell. And then there's this gem at the end: "As we approach next gen, we're seeing games that broaden the horizons for cinematic experiences with valuable gameplay. The Last of Us feels like an early peek into that bright future. Games like Watch Dogs and Titanfall suggest even more ways to combine a narrative with traditional, unscripted gameplay." Yeah, I'm sure the narrative in Titanfall will be awesome. /s
isnt titanfall a multiplayer only game? I fail to see how the Narrative could be great, in this regard
The only thing Remember Me killed was it's own franchise.
lol remember me? no. No I dont!
You should be flogged for even putting those games in the same article.... Uncharted and The Last of Us are 5x better than that piece of trash of a game.
uncharted will be back with avengence on the ps4 believe that!
but if look naughty dogs games they have references to their next game uncharted had a last of us easter egg im guessing their next will be savage starlight (the comic in the last of us)
I fail to see the difference in Uncharted and TLoU. You still have the same open combat areas in both games, only TLoU makes stealth or avoiding combat viable choices. You simply cannot avoid gunning down hundreds in Uncharted but it is a shooter first and everything else second. Also, what does the author want out of a TPS? The ability to choose to go left or right, which really is the same path masked by different levels of the same structure? What about if you removed the vertical aspect of Uncharted and make the game nothing but moving from cover to cover or sliding? If The Last of Us kills the best TPS (TloU is not a shooter) in Uncharted, then what about Gears, Vanquish, Spec Ops, Dead Space, and all the others? They don't have a right to exist because they also funnel you along with only one of them giving you an arbitrary left or right path. Hell, Gears IS Uncharted without the vertical gameplay, cinematics, and travel porn... This argument makes no sense, but I do agree that Uncharted cannot just be more of the same. Linearity is not an issue but the game needs an Upgrade system to keep you engaged in gunning down mobs. It needs a carrot on the stick system and more combat areas like the huge ship graveyard in UC3 or the frozen trainwreck in UC2. People tend to forget how open UC can be at times... Lastly, Linear games still have a place in next gen. Next gen will suck if everything has an open world. You can't appreciate a Watch Dogs or MGS5 if every game has the same structure.
Killed by Remember Me? There couldn't be anything more hilarious than that. Who's this butthurt OP?
