Why Uncharted 2 Could Spell Bad News for the Games Industry (resumeplay)

ResumePlay writes: "Before I get into this, I imagine you saw the title and thought 'What?! This guy's clearly an idiot. Uncharted 2 is bloody awesome, keep your opinions to yourself before the wrath of the internet eats you whole.' Bravo, you fell right into my cunning, yet journalistically clichéd trap, you poor thing. I only just finished Uncharted 2, I know, I'm a terrible person. I couldn't start playing it until the Saturday afternoon and being such the social butterfly/part-time waiter I am, didn't get to complete it until today." (PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)

The Sony Curtain
Sony stands at this time at the pinnacle of world power. It is a solemn moment for the Sony Socialist Republic. For with this primacy in power is also joined an awe-inspiring accountability to the future. As you look around you, you must feel not only the sense of duty done, but also you must feel anxiety lest you fall below the level of achievement. Opportunity is here now, clear and shining, for both our systems, the PS3 and the PSP line. To reject it or ignore it or fritter it away will bring upon us all the long reproaches of the aftertime.

It is necessary that constancy of mind, persistency of purpose, and the grand simplicity of decision shall rule and guide the conduct of the gamers in peace as they did in war. We must, and I believe we shall, prove ourselves greater to this severe requirement.

I have a strong admiration and regard for the valiant Naughty Dog and for our wartime comrade, Guerilla Games. There is deep sympathy and goodwill in Sony - and I not doubt here also - toward the people of all MicroSoft and a resolve to persevere through many differences and rebuffs in establishing lasting friendship or if not, utter obliteration.

If the population of the Sony Gaming Commonwealth be added to that of the world, with all that such cooperation implies in the air, on the sea, all over the globe, and in science and in industry, and in moral force, there will be no quivering, precarious balance of power to offer its temptation to ambition or adventure. On the contrary there will be an overwhelming assurance of security.

If we adhere faithfully to the Sony Theology and Sony Ideology through the PlayStation3 and walk forward in sedate and sober strength, seeking no one's land or treasure, seeking to lay no arbitrary control upon the thoughts of men, if all Sony moral and material forces and convictions are joined with your own in fraternal association, the high roads of the future will be clear, not only for us but for all, not only for our time but for a century to come.

Thank you.
Hail Fuhrer Kaz Hirai and the Sony Socialist Republic!

Naughty Dog landed a kick on ever other developers crotch with Uncharted 2, specially Valve's for being an ass towards PS3 with their Bullshit reason to hate PS3.

"In short: bad news for mediocre developers, good news for the consumer. Now Modern Warfare 2 had better be pretty spectacular. And I lied, it’s a fantastic thing for the games industry. Bring it on!"
deadreckoning666  +   2303d ago
Uncharted 2 doesn't spell bad news for the industry. ODST sales and Modern Warfare 2 pre-orders have shown that the AVERAGE consumer doesn't require games to push boundaries. All they want is FUN. If the MAJORITY of people judged games on the boundaries they pushed then Uncharted 2 would be the best selling video-game of all time.

Honestly, Uncharted 2 may influence SOME developers to up their game, but as a whole it won't, AT LEAST not in this generation with an expansion pack that doesn't do much new sells 2 million copies in one day.

@Nycredude- Hey, if enjoying BOTH Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 equally means that I have low expectations, then I don't mind being the average consumer to be honest. Who says a game has to push boundaries to be fun?!

JsonHenry  +   2303d ago
I love this game. Certainly one of the best platformers I have ever played. Actually, it is THE best platformer I have ever played. While I agree most devs will still be mediocre, I don't think that UC2 actually does anything "new" either. It is just a well polished, WELL WRITTEN!!!, and tight controls that pull this game off.
RememberThe357  +   2303d ago
There have been so many games out there that it is hard to do anything new.
But we no longer need developers to do something new. With maturity comes judgment. As this industry has grown into it's own it is clear that quality is key. You no longer need something new to break down boundaries.

But all these reviewers claiming that Uncharted 2 doesn't do anything new, and giving the game massive praise, makes me wonder why some were so hard on Killzone 2 when their major complaint was that it didn't do anything new. WTF?

so you wouldn't mind if say 3 years down the road, the industry has died and COD is pretty much the only game you can find? The average consumer isn't too smart, and that's why COD7,8,9,100(all using the same engine) will sell disgusting numbers no doubt, how long before everyone gets sick of gaming? It only took 1 COD game(mw1) before i lost all interest in the series,at the rate they pump out (yearly) cod games, i would imagine everyone will regret making the industry into what it is today.

Modern Warfare 2 is the same thing as ODST... A $60 expansion pack, with a tacked on campaign!
zeeshan  +   2303d ago
Modern Warfare 2 is more like MW1.5. The first teaser trailer of Uncharted 2 was mind blowing. It was like what? 20 seconds long? I don't remember but it was the scene where Drake was trying to make his way out of a snow storm and fell on the ground. I was amazed when I saw the snow, the enviornment, the blizzard, the wind, physics looked awesome and as it turns out, Uncharted 2 has now been called by many people as GOTY. Now compare this to MW2's trailer that we have seen and I can easily say that as far as I am concerned, I am SO NOT interested in it. The graphics look the same to me with minor enhancement. Note that I said, MINOR. The gameplay looks the same as well.

See, apparently, Infinity Ward are following that "Don't fix what's not broken" rule but improving graphics is not going to break anything. Now, you add Fifty Cents in the game and that doesn't bloody make a sense to me!

Uncharted 2 might be great but...

Why Uncharted 2 Could Spell Bad News for the Games Industry
By gaming industry they mean developers on ps3 who gave us LAIR,Kill Zone,HAZE,HEAVENLY SWORD which all these games Flopped so its time for these ps3 developers to come up to standards as Uncharted 2.

Take this b..... bubbles.

Even if those games you mentioned were "flops", then Uncharted 2 will be additional motivation for developers to go above that standard, which is even better news for PS3 owners, because we will get much better games, never before seen. Whereas 360 owners get the kind of games like Halo 3 ODST.

And MS couldn't even come out with one reliable XBox of the 7 different series they've used over 4 years. Lost 2 billions in repairs and will never have the chance to own a GOTY on a old format DVD disc. So what is a real flop here? You ever seen Heavenly Sword or Killzone2 on a big DLP,LCD or Plasma tv? Jaw dropping would be an understatement.

Gametrailers: "bu..bu..bu.bbut UC2 teh no originality!!" Can't wait to see when MW2 comes out and the score it gets. It's good to see UC2 kick @ss out there. I hope this is a wake up call to the industry to start stepping up their game and produce true next-gen games. I think it start with KZ2. That game should definitely start lighting fires under some lazy dev @sses. It's a good time to be a gamer.

So at the end of the article the author says,

Why would an author contradict his whole entire article? Oh yea, its because he's trying to bash Uncharted 2. See, this is what happens when you try to bring a good game down. You simply can't. Uncharted has raised the bar in this industry and challenges all to see if they can do better. Thank You Naughty Dog.

If U2 doesn't win GOTY, I will be extremely disappointed.

Anyway i said "Doesn't matter about one game, half arsed developers will forever be half arsed developers. A developer won't suddenly turn around and decide 'oh *Successful developer here* created a new and amazing game, we must follow suit!" NOOOOOOOO!!!

Much more likely they will say "HEY LOOK! Something new! COPY & PASTE, COPY & PASTE!" BUT! Good developers actually will look at it and say "Hey thats new, we'll build on that but not actually just follow it."

Point is: Half Arsed Developer will Always be that.

I don't like how he claims that Uncharted 2 did what MGS4 so much tried to achieve...I think MGS4 was and still is a fantastic game. If you can't handle that many cutscenes than that's fine but truthfully in length Uncharted 2 probably wasn't that MUCH longer than MGS4. It was just different is all.
cmrbe  +   2303d ago
The problem is. Most kids
are addicted to constant gameplay due mostly to TV and for gaming it is online gaming.

Everything is instant and most kids don't have the patient and attention span to digest something like MGS4. Its sad really.

U2 is your great action adventure flick. It has a great plot that is fairly straight forward as in like most action adventure movies. I do mean this though. U2 is on par with Raiders of the last ark in plot/story and humor. It is freaking amazing.

MGS4 on the other hand is equivalent to your epic drama/action movie with extremely deep character development with alot of history and complex plot/story which dabs alot into complex social and political issues of the mordern era.

In other words. They are completely different type of games that blurs the line between movies and games. However, the main difference is U2 is alot more accessible to the masses compare to MGS4.

It's funny, My niece likes to watch me play. When i played MGS4 she asked alot of questions and she was not that interested like i was in the long cutsscenes. I was glued to the tv and hanged on to every words that were said in those MGS4 custscenes because it was that good and important. When i played U2 she hardly asked any questions and she enjoyed it alot more because she understood it more.

Between the 2 games i still rate MGS4 higher because i appreciated the story more. I always knew this from the beginning before i played U2. U2 however is now my 4th best game ever. The only game that i see has a shot in dethroning MGS4 for me personally is TLG.
Tex117  +   2303d ago
MGS4's cut scenes went on for ALOT longer than you remember. Some are over 30 minutes long. Uncharted 2 never had any that long from what I can remember.

"MGS4 on the other hand is equivalent to your epic drama/action movie with extremely deep character development with alot of history and complex plot/story which dabs alot into complex social and political issues of the mordern era."

You may have enjoyed the story. I can see why if you like that kind of stuff. But for the love of gawd, if you had little interest in Sci-Fi crap, or didn't have a firm grasp on the Metal Gear Solid story line, or both...then it sucks.

I have zero interest in sci-fi and I only played MGS1, MGS2, and MGS4. So you can see where I come down on this.

30 minutes to an hour cut scene in which NOTHING is really said other than a bunch of scifi babble bullsheet.

A dismembered cyborg ninja? Good Grief.

I loathe the story of Metal Gear Solid 4, but love the gameplay.

Uncharted is a much more fun, accessible and likeable than MGS4. BUT, to each their own. Both are of the very top quality.
cmrbe  +   2303d ago
MGS4 is for the fans. You missed the most important which is MGS3. With MGS4 Kojima tied up all the lose ends that i know of a 20 year old franchise. Every custscenes were important to fully apperciate MGS.

There has been alot of debate on weather Kojima made the right decision with the long cutscense. However, without them it wouldn't have been MGS that fans know. Kojima didn't compromise on his vision and for that i am thankful for. I never remember a cutscene that was 30 min, well perhaps the ending but it never felt that long to me because they were that good to me. Yes as i said. MGS4 is not for everyone which is a shame because alot of people are missing out on great story because most expect games to be non stop action mainly catered for young people. Because of this. Most people will never treat gaming as a serious medium for story telling.

Tex117  +   2303d ago

I'm not saying MGS4 is a bad game. It most certainly isin't, but as you mentioned it was very much for the fans. I was never really a fan of the MGS storyline anyway, I just liked the gameplay. But those cutscense to me were so brutal I haven't picked it up again after I beat it. But I know quality when I see it, and I know it is a masterpiece. Not everybody likes the classics right?

"most expect games to be non stop action mainly catered for young people."
Perhaps you are correct to an extent, but I hope you aren't pointing that finger at me! I've been playing games for over 20 years. And I appreciate the craft of telling a good story.

"Because of this. Most people will never treat gaming as a serious medium for story telling. "

No, most people wont treat gaming as a serious medium for story telling when dismembered cybory ninjas are still involved. MGS4 is not a mature game...well it is a mature game for 18 year olds with all that very Japanese sci-fi melodrama crap. (I know thats a low blow, and Im not calling you an immature 18 year old or anything...but Im trying to make a point through hyperbole).

Im greatly looking forward to Heavy Rain, this as far as I can see is the first console game to really tackle head on the idea of a "mature" game. They may fail, but I hope they do not.

Uncharted 2 was Indiana Jones plain and simple. It was not the most mature story line, but it wasn't trying to be. The Gametrailers guys nailed it when he said while he was playing it he felt like he was 8 years old watching Indiana Jones for the first time. It never took itself too seriously and it showed. Like the Marco...Polo medals. Hilarious!

MGS4 really tried hard to be deep and profound. It was for some gamers...for was just a bunch of psychobabble, not unlike the Matrix or something like that.
Whitefox789  +   2303d ago
Agree'd to truly appreciate MGS4 you would have to play MGS 1, 2, and 3 lucky for me I've played every single Metal Gear game out there! (including the Ac!d series and Ghost Babel though I didn't play either of the cell phone games, I will admit that I have yet to finish the original MSX version of MG1 and MG2). Believe me the cutscenes are a lot better then the 20 min codec conversation at the end of MGS2.
Rocket Sauce  +   2303d ago
MGS 4's dialog is mostly a bunch of nonsense that goes on forever, but the game is also full of giant robots and fart jokes. I think it's plenty accessible to kids.

I was not referring to you. Rather thats how people see the gaming industry in general.

Yes, Heavy rain will be for adults only i believe. That game will be more down to earth and more true to life. I don't think anyone that have seen the previews can dispute that and why i am also really looking forward to it and hope it will suceed and people will not bring it down. I really need games that treat me like the adult i am. However we will again see young gamers and reviewers b1tch again about how its mostly QTE and has too long cutscenes because they would prefer non stop violent action in their games that revolves around shooting/cover/shooting for the duration of their games. These are the people that i am talking about.

MGS is a sci-fi game, that is true but most of the stuff in it is not that far fetched and they are similar to what other contemporary sci-fi writers would write. Yes there are a few awkward moments in MGS game actually there are alot, i'll give you that but that is just Kojima being Japanese. We all know that Japanese are quite weird sometimes with thier humor and taste as we have seen in countless big Japanese games like FF for example however it dosen't distract away from the fact that they are still masterpiece in gaming ans story telling.
Tex117  +   2303d ago
NeiborhoodLaika: Agreed. It had a great tounge in cheek throughout the whole game. Even in "intense situations" stupid jokes were always being made. Like a true adventure movie.

" was not referring to you."
I knew you weren't.

"Rather thats how people see the gaming industry in general."

Agreed, but as I mentioned cyborg ninjas aren't helping the matter. Sci-Fi as a general principal would not be the genere to champion video games out of adolesent obscurity. I know ALOT of people like it and I'm not knocking it. If it floats your boat then rock on. But as for the population as a whole, something with more broad appeal would need to carry the torch. Uncharted 2 is a step in the right direction that MGS4 helped set up. A cinematic experience.

Games have more challenges to overcome to be accepted as a true artistic medium than just storytelling (to the general public). This is unfortunate, but true. I guess

"However we will again see young gamers and reviewers b1tch again about how its mostly QTE and has too long cutscenes because they would prefer non stop violent action in their games that revolves around shooting/cover/shooting for the duration of their games. These are the people that i am talking about."

You are probably right. I have quit watching any trailers or teasers for Heavy Rain. I don't want anything ruined for me. I got close to that kind of overload with Uncharted 2.

"MGS is a sci-fi game, that is true but most of the stuff in it is not that far fetched and they are similar to what other contemporary sci-fi writers would write.

Yes its sci-fi but even that dismembered cyborg ninja has a very detailed and almost credible explination. I hvnt played UC2 yet (saddly) but LETS NOT FORGET UNC 1 HAD NAZI EATING ALIENS!!!! That said i still loved the game

Both these games play like movies but just like real movies there are diffrent types of movies made for diffrent people. The article compares uncharted 2 to an indiana jones movie, sticking to that comparison, comparing Uncharted 2 to MGS4 is like comparing a Lucas film to a Terintino. George Lucas films are normaly more animated and active, while the apeal of Terintino films, like that of kojima's games is their depth of detail and complexity of their stories. Picking between the two depends soley on personal prefrence.

Uncharted 2 is just average game and graphics are nothing special which will be surpassed by games like Alan Wake, Rage, Mass Effect 2 .Difference with these games are they are not on ps3 so they won't be hyped like games on ps3 as being the best looking games ever.
BrokenAnarchy  +   2303d ago
Rage is on the PS3..And the only place Mass Effect 2 will have good graphics is on the PC. I wouldn't be surprised if the 360 version has the same crappy pop-ins like the first game.

Its not a new thing, if you sit and play ps3 exclusives like motorstorm, MGS4, Uncharted, killzone and then switch to something else its a massive quality divide I have a decent pc rig too for some multiplat games. True sony fans already know this.
MostUnfurrowed  +   2303d ago
In my eyes, Killzone 2 only pushed the bar graphically. Uncharted seems to do so in almost all facets, perhaps asides from plotline, but the way in which it's executed, acted etc. surpasses most, if not all games.
Bloodraid  +   2303d ago
I completely agree with the Killzone 2 bit. I know I'll probably get all of my bubbles eaten and a hundred disagrees, but I'm just gonna say it.

KillZone 2 is in no way a good game in my opinion. I enjoyed the online when it first came out, but it took me like 2 months to drag myself through the campaign because it was just that bad.

The online was great when it first came out [When everyone was still leveling up] but after a few weeks when everyone started maxing out and unlocking their classes, the game turned into a spam fest, which is definitely not my type of game.

yeah the demo of mass effect over heats 360s the full game will turn them into nuclear warheads

4 Disagrees in 2 minutes


It never seizes to amaze me that people care enough to click "disagree" bubble me down sure, go ahead do your worst, but clicking disagree doesn't actually do anything xD

Seriously, I could work for Naughty Dog themselves, then utter a few words which show even the slightest, tiniest bit of negativity towards the PS3 or any of its games or anything to do with either of them and fanboys will start crying :P

Well no, just your immediate dismissal of the game, considering it was released on Friday in the UK, just seemed a little unnecessary. If you don't care for the game, then why did you click this article in the first place?

I'm not a fanboy at all, quite opposite in fact. Just your 'Pah, NEXT!' attitude doesn't serve anybody any favours, especially with this gaming getting such high review scores.

i brought uncharted 2 to my xbox fanboy friends, and after we beat the game they asked, "are all ps3 games like this?" I said shamefully no, to which they replied, "because this is amazing."

There are a few that might be in the same paragraph.
Should have said mainly the first party titles. Should have shown him the first uncharted so he can see the beginning, then Killzone 2, inFamous, Heavenly Sword and so forth.

im fuokining surprised this game doesnt have singel loading or texture pop up issue..not only there is no instal at all..??!! yo this game is a beast.
Kakihara  +   2303d ago
What?! This guy's clearly an idiot. Uncharted 2 is bloody awesome
MostUnfurrowed  +   2303d ago
Why don't you actually read the article? It's PRO-Uncharted.
bjornbear  +   2303d ago
people should really read the articles before they comment...or else they just look silly..
Kakihara  +   2303d ago
They really should.
Figboy  +   2303d ago
lol @ Kakihara;
they clearly missed the joke. don't worry. i got it, (both of them, actually), and got a good chuckle out of it.

bad news for the bots as they have no games to play

Its bad news for Lazy Devs
but good for gamers and PS3 gamers in particular.

Sony Philosphy in game dev is to make the best game they can. Thats why alot of devs respect Sony alot. This is no secret.

To other Sony devs, U2 is an inspiration to go even further and create even better gaming expereince.

Both Sony and their first party knows that if you do your best, everything else will fall into place.

I'm happy with xbox360 games like most games if any on xbox360 don't get hyped to the max. On ps3 every game some how has to be hyped and which every developer likes to mention on ps3 (Can't be done on xbox360). Even the Wii doesn't hype their games only console on the market that loves Hyping is ps3 which is sad and maybe they think its the only way they might be able to crawl their way out of 3RD place by hype.

Are you sad that you only have a few good exclusives this year? Watch out for next year then, when Heavy Rain, Mag, GOW III(Gow stands for God of War), GT5, and the other good PS3 exclusives come out.
STRAIGHTASL  +   2303d ago
always speaking with your crap 360 games!
so go play and suck your mom's milk melons please, MGR.
skatezero246  +   2303d ago
lol if you own so many so called great 360 games then how come your on here all the time trolling ps3 related topics? sounds like you have nothing better do considering Microsoft hasn't released sh!t this year except for an overpriced expanison pack (halo odst)
Obama  +   2303d ago
People actually understand what pp is saying? It seems like a bunch of gibberish to me.

2 minutes till NPD
silvacrest  +   2303d ago
i agree with him to an extent but like someone said above, the average gamer does not no or does not care about the quality and breaking new ground, thats why a game like ODST can sell 2 million in 1 day

slightly of topic but his MGS4 rant was retarded, if he did keep up with the series the long cut scenes would make sense and would probably even be a joy to watch, wrapping up the epic saga was worth the watch
