this guy does not really go in to emphasis as to why he actually questions "is uncharted dead?" he is just spouting ideas. he does have some good ideas though.

Add that clone, Deadfall Adventures to the list.

Uncharted is only dead if Naughty Dog decide to make it that way I'm hoping it's the beginning of a series that goes from strength to strength in the future,for me personally I can't get enough of the game Uncharted 4 bring it on and hopefully 1,2,3 remasters at some point.
SpiralTear  +   184d ago
Normally, when Naughty Dog completes a story and moves onto a new franchise, the former series is either abandoned completely (Crash Bandicoot) or given mediocre continuations until it's irrelevant (Jak and Daxter). It seems that the only one that knows how to make Naughty Dog franchises incredible...is Naughty Dog.
ColeMacGrath  +   183d ago
Crash is only abandoned because it's in Activision's hands now.

Also, this is the first time for ND to create a 4th sequel in a franchise, so it certainly shows some potential for Uncharted to have more future sequels/spinoffs for PS4. I wouldn't doubt ND to remaster the first 3 games one day for PS4.

3 was meh... Too many bullet sponges. The mp was ok but UC2 was better in every way. The thing i like about uncharted games is the character customization. Makes you feel unique
LOGICWINS  +   184d ago
I enjoyed UC3's campaign. Those gameplay sections in the desert were EPIC! Multiplayer was garbage though. Unbalanced mess.
SkippyPaccino  +   183d ago
Uncharted 3 was the best one by far they just didn't sell it properly. They showed us almost the entire game before it was released and if you watched a couple of video reviews (I stopped watching video reviews before I play the game after uncharted 3)they spoiled the rest.

I think naughty dog learnt a lesson after 3 because they barely showed anything for "the last of us" (I also staid far away from any news) and it made the game so much better.

Imagine Going into uncharted 3 and not knowing anything about young Drake, the boat sequence, the plain sequence etc? You would've been blown away. Uncharted 2 was a great game (one of ps3 best) but it followed the exact story arc of the first uncharted game, it's only that it did it better the second time around.

I can't wait to play 4. I don't even need more news on the game since it's a automatic day one for me. I wouldn't mind them stopping the franchise after 4 and maybe potentially have it comeback at the end of the console cycle. Naughty dog is a very talented studio and I want them to give us new adventures to look forward to.

What a stupid question.
PSNghost88  +   184d ago
I seriously had this arguement with a group of Uncharted fans. They said it was a dead series. Plrobably should have explained that a bit. I thought it was implied really.
cfc78  +   184d ago
Sure they weren't Halo fans pretending to be Uncharted fans.
luis_spartano  +   184d ago

A series is dead when the games are coming but not selling, and no one wants them. And that's not happening with Uncharted, 'cause everyone wants a new one!
DigitalRaptor  +   184d ago
Have you noticed that most opinion article titles we see are redundant questions?

The content in this video is good, but these bad, click-bait article titles need to die away. Not once did he really discuss why Uncharted could be considered a "DEAD" series, so why is it in the article title? Cause it gets more hits.

Enough already - if your content is good it will find its way without sensationalist headlines.

I tried not to make it too click bait, but failed apparently. Its hard to get things approved with a generic headline. *still not an excuse for click bait* my apologies.
DigitalRaptor  +   184d ago
Dude, you should do what you want with your content. Don't feel like my complaining should make you change anything. My comment was just my gripe with gaming journalism in general, and how it can be improved.

I liked the video though. You come up with some pretty great suggestions.

And yes, Uncharted is not dead - ND will find a way to blow us away again, I'm sure. ☺

HeWhoWalks  +   184d ago
I have noticed it, which is why I tend to ignore them. Continuous redundancy with little to nothing that truly aids the idea. "Is the Uncharted series dead"? Um.....based on what? Why would such a question need to be asked?

That said, the author seems like a reasonable guy - thus, would probably warrant a good discussion.
#7.2 (Edited 184d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
I hope 4 is the last one (at least with the current characters). If they make Uncharted 5 then at least let it have a whole new cast rather than just milking the ones they have. They apparently have no problem doing it with the last of us so they should do the same with Uncharted.
OrangePowerz  +   184d ago
Part of why I play and like Uncharted games is the cast. It's like doing a new Indiana Jones without Indy.

LOGICWINS  +   184d ago
And ND can EASILY create a new cast that Sony fans will scoop up like mint chocolate chip ice cream.

UC4 could have had a brand new cast and it would be getting just as many pre-orders only for the fact that ND made it and the graphics look "purdy".

I was quite concerned when they showed the first teaser that Nathan wouldn't be the main character.

I rather see the series end instead of some other cast replacing Nathan, Sully and co. Just like why I don't really look forward to MGS5 because Snake without David Hayter isn't Snake for me and that's a big part of why I like MGS or why I couldn't be bothered with Scrubs after many main characters left. So yeah they wouldn't get my pre order for an UC game without the usual cast.

I love ND games, but without Nathan Uncharted isn't Uncharted for me. I can life without Joel and Ellie in a TLoU sequel since their story was told and there are many many other survivors left in the universe to make a story around. It was a specific story arc of for these two characters that had a clear start and end. The same just doesn't apply for me to Uncharted and Nathan since it's like Indiana Jones. There isn't any specific start or end or specific story arc. While there are some parts of story that carry over between the games the main story is self contained. And you can play any of the 3 games without encountering really any moment where you get lost because you didn't play any of the other games.

I don't see the issue with UC5...it just can't have Nate as the lead anymore. ND has made it clear that this is the end of the Drake storyline.

UC3 should've ended Nate's story IMO, but ND has proven they can create compelling storylines. Nate will have a VERY good reason to be back for a new adventure.

Nope, the uncharted series is untouchable.
Godmars290  +   184d ago
It should either ended with this fourth installment, or the baton needs to be past to a new protagonist.

Who, oddly can't/shouldn't be female...for obvious reasons.

Drake is what makes the franchise. Uncharted without him is just manslaughter in the jungle.

What type of title is this ? Uncharted 3 sold like 6 million copies and has a metacritic score in 90s.
WeAreLegion  +   184d ago
Is my tabloid-style title too obvious?
ocelot07  +   184d ago
I honestly don't believe this is the last of Drake to be honest with you. I think after uncharted 4 they will make a prequel of some sort like the Golden Abyss on the Vita. Maybe even a game where we play as a younger Sully.
MysticStrummer  +   184d ago
Ha ha Sully with young Nate as his Short Round.

Uncharted dead let me think... far from it. When a series ends that doesn't mean its dead. All it means the series has ended.

So very precise with gammar. I'm impressed.

I bet the "Last of Us" movie comes out first. Casting drake will be hard.

They're making a sequel and a film. This is a moronic question to ask.

Is the Uncharted Series Dead? No. A movie and a game are on the way how can it be dead when people thought they were watching a CGI movie 2 months ago, and we get a movie release date last week?
OrangePowerz  +   184d ago
Blossom into something great? Uncharted 2 was one of the best games last gen. Just give me something like that with better graphics and I'm as happy as can be. I would buy a remaster of the 3 games instantly with no questions asked. I don't want huge areas to explore or similar, areas of the size of TLoU is fine and other than that just more of the same of what UC2 made great.

A few tweakes to gunplay and AI and everything is good.

Uncharted 2 really has been the only one making any noise.The other two were sub par.A Thiefs End will change that mind you,looks sweet.If they can get those graphics with U2 story and cinematic gameplay then we're in for a huge treat.
OrangePowerz  +   184d ago
I really liked the first one. It had it's problems that's for sure, but I still consider it a very good game and it was quite different from the sequels just like Golden Abyss that was more like the first one. Still prefer UC2 because that's when they ironed out most of the issues from the first.
ado908  +   184d ago
How wasn't uncharted 2 like the second or third most awarded game of last gen? The last of us being first? Uncharted has a bigger user base than the last of us.
KYU2130  +   184d ago
I am an uncharted fan. I replay all of the games in the series when I have nothing better to play, and I think it's time to let the series go after the next one releases. why? You ask. Well you've sen the main characters evolve and the story for Drake has been told, if the series continues Drake would have to be the mentor and pass the torch to someone else. Since it's quite obvious this is an older Drake we should find out how his relationships have changed and if he is settling down and if he is hanging up his holsters.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   184d ago
Hell no it isn't. Every Uncharted game has been fantastic imo. Give me more please. UC4 will be stellar because that's just what Naughty Dog does.
