NRM: "If there’s one thing you learn quickly about Naughty Dog, it’s that every second game they make, from Crash Bandicoot 2 to Uncharted 2, are the best in their respective series."
Jak and Daxter 2 was not best ...was by far inferior to its "Crash-esque" real platformer predecessor JAk 1 ...Jak 3 was even worse.....I dont get high hopes for LoUS2 ...i dont like its obnoxious social direction with lame Neil druckman (from atmosphere-feeling standpoint because visually will be top notch)
Agree with you on jak, but i think lou2 will be better than the first in every department. Hoping the story doesn't go all preachy on us tho.
It will preach hardcore unrelenting post apocalyptic violence.
I'd love to know what you mean by "Preachy" Jim. If you're referring to the violence, betrayal, murder, and character development, then it can preach away. If you're referring to DAT KISS.... Then get out. Because preaching would be Ellie shouting "I'M GAY. IM KISSING THIS GIRL! LOOK AT ME! IM KISSING THIS GIRL"
I'm sure you're getting battlefield 1.V (see what I did there) though.
Jak and Daxter and Jak II are just too different to compare. The first is simultaneously a love letter to the 3D platformer genre and a massive step forward in open world gaming. The second is an early demonstration of Naughty Dog's narrative mastery, and was ahead of its time. But I would agree, Jak II wasn't exactly an improvement over the first.
For me Jak 2 was the best but Jak 3 was a very close second because I really enjoyed going to the wasteland and riding the dune buggies.
Jak 3 is the best jak...by far and uc4 is the best uc IMO
Brilliant isnt it. Peoples different opinions. I thought jak 3 was shit, but i agree that U4 was the best in the series!
Jak 3 was my fav as well
I still prefer UC2 over 4, core gameplay isn't as tight but the pacing and story were more enjoyable in my opinion.
UC4 was by far the worst for me, but Jak 3 was brilliant
when it comes to the Jak series I thought 1 was really good and 2 fell short of what it was trying to do in a lot of ways and jak 3 did what jak 2 tried to do just executed much better making it right up there with the first. So yeah Jak 2 was my least favorite.
Jak 1 is way better than 2 and 3.
I think this will be a popular opinion. Jak 1 was so ambitious and polished. The sequels were sharper visually but lacked the direction of 1.
That’s because ND took The series to a darker, more story focused direction which in my opinion was for the better. People wanted Jak to still be a platformer collect-a-ton like the first. While in its time it was great, I don’t think I would have enjoyed 2 or 3 as much if it stayed in that direction. I had problems with Jak 2 because ND didn’t implement some of the new festures very well and at times felt like a GTA rippoff, but Jak 3 fixed all that and added much more. Jak 3 is my favorite in the series
Eh, I prefer happy go lucky Jak 1 than its sequels
I dont think Uc2 is better than Uc4 they are close though. I prefer Jak 3 over 2 and in no freaking hell is Crash 2 better than the thrid one or the first.
I was more invested in u4 and its story and overall just a solid game... two just had those superbly done “wow” sets like the train sequence that led to where the story started, the helicopter fight, etc...
Yeah bro one thing i will always agree on is that UC2 has almost perfect pacing.
I think 4 comes close to uncharted 2's campaign but overall including the multiplayer(if you played it) Uc2 wins hands down. The multiplayer was just incredible
Have to disagree with Crash 1 being better than Crash 2. A lot of things just felt outdated with Crash 1 when Crash 2 hit the scene. Every problem I had with Crash 1 was fixed with the sequel.
4 had the better story but 2 is better in pretty much everything else.
I like uncharted 2 better as well. I always thought that in contrast of the last of us being a masterclass in the story/characters/world areas, Uncharted was much better when focusing on set pieces and over the top action. Uncharted 4 was good but it tried to converge the two and wasn’t what I wanted. Nolan North is great but I always felt like Nate and the rest of the cast were kind of intentionally bland so to make their characters the focus felt off to me.
Jax and daxter is the only franchise they made...I didn’t like...I just thought it wa kind of boring. Crash Bandicoot, Uncharted, and Last Of Us...I love them
I prefered the first Jak, Crash and Uncharted. Maybe it was just the originality at the time.
Personally I don't remember any of the uncharted being better than the other. They were all true to the series and all equally amazing.
Jak ii is one of the worst games I have ever played
crash 1 was better then crash 2 and warped
well... no. crash bandicoot: the 3rd is the best; jak & daxter: the first is the best; uncharted: the 4th is the best; the last of us: only time will tell
Uncharted 4 was the best one
I would agree, but Crash Bandicoot: Warped is a better game and more fun than Crash 2. Although, I do have a soft spot for the jetboard and jetpack sections. Jak 2 is still a great game to this day with all it's world building, missions and mini games. Uncharted 2 is brilliant, but I'll be honest, there's so many stunning set pieces in it that it's hard to have anything like it in the later ones, the truck chase through the shanty town from U4 was pretty marvelous though. I guess it's because ND put the ideas back in the sequel that they had to remove from the first due to time constraints and then with the new ideas given from feedback of the release thrown in. When it comes to the third game they are simply refining the previous sequel, to be honest Insomniac work this way too.
Jak 2? you mean that game where you had to constantly travel to opposite ends of the map with horrible vehicles that blex up in 2 hits?
Nope. Uncharted 1 trumps Uncharted 2. 2 cents.
Uncharted 1 trumps them all as far as its sharp writing goes, as for an overall game UC2 rules the roost.
Jak 2 was the worst in the series. Jak 3 was the redeemer and the best in the series.
I didn't like crash cuz I'm not a platform guy. Haven't played Jak before so pass that. U4 was the best IMO with best villain(Rafe not Nadine) and phenomenal story. Best performance and best gun mechanics. It was the most believable one without that super natural nonsense. TLOUP2 is shaping up to be the best game of the generation knocking down U4 which is on my number one spot.
Madness. Crash Warped was the best Crash
This won't continue with TLOU 2 if the SJWs have anything to say about it. Because there is an imbalance between hetero and gay characters in pop culture.
Crash Team Racing > every other Crash game
Crash 3 was better that 2 Uncharted 4 was better than 2 Jak 2 I'll agree with though.
How in the hell could you definitively say that Jak 2 was the best... It was the only one in the trilogy I couldn't bring myself to beat. Jak 3 was better in every way, and Jak 1 is one of the best pure platformers of all time.
TLoU1 was such a great game that it's gonna be hard to top it imo. This isn't a dig at all more like praise
I loved all their third entries compared to their second ones though
I agree with Uncharted 2, but Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped was my favorite Crash gam and Jak & Daxter 1 was easily my favorite of that series. Can't wait for The Last of Us 2!
Uncharted 2 is the reason I never finished Uncharted 3,Tbe combat and 2 felt better it was just fun to play.Uncharted3 was more like an interactive movie it was ok but slow and boring #compared to 2
the same reason for almost everything n life. the first is the template and the second you can just go for it.
