Tameem Antoniades, Chief Designer of fantasy action-adventure title Enslaved believes Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Theives is the best thing ever.

Well, Uncharted 2 IS the best game I've ever played so I guess that's true.

vhero3123d ago

It is the best ever it is the tomb raider of the modern generation. Drake is Lara without the breasts :p.

boodybandit3123d ago

I prefer the Chloe and Elena sandwich over Lara.
Lara was hot but now she is a hag. ;)

" the 5 people who have disagreed with me so far don't think San Andreas is the best game they've ever played and believe that PS3 exclusives are the end all be all of gaming"

Logical and mature opinion? HA! Look up logic and maturity in the dictionary pal... Your "logic" tells you that anyone and everyone that disagrees with you believes that "PS3 exclusives are the end all be all of gaming". Cause who could possibly be so stupid as to even purpose that a dated PS2 game like SA isn't the greatest game ever made. Don't confuse nostalgia with quality.

Commander TK3122d ago

I'd say Kojima Productions, Insomniac or Rockstar North

I unlocked the platinum trophy for UC2 then went on to beat the game again!
It truly is one AMAZING GAME!

UnSelf3123d ago (Edited 3123d ago )

it is not the best game you ever played

(not class if my hypothesis is correct, my disagree count should begin to swell up dramatically. In the next lesson, we'll learn how to swell up our agree count.)

Rainstorm813122d ago (Edited 3122d ago )

Of course your hypothesis is correct, i disagree with you telling anyone what thier opinion should be as well.

Disagrees are easy to obtain. Its when you are being truthful can you still get that high amount of agrees. (not just telling the sheep or trolls what they want to hear)

deafwing3123d ago

they'll bit'ch and moan during the infant years of the system but they'll have each others back like brothers in arms. How about NT take some of the ideas from UC and implement in their game - that would be cool.

NeoBasch3123d ago

Naughty Dog to me has always been the best. They have an eye for cinematic experiences like none other, except maybe Bioware. Remember Jak 3? That game was a catalyst for everything that was Uncharted. Way too much epic in that game. I could barely restrain myself. Naughty Dog has continually outdone themselves since. That coupled with their cinematic vision leads me to believe they are the best studio currently working in the gaming industry today.

Meanwhile, Bioware is riding their heels. These two studios put a majority of companies to shame. Way to go Naughty Dog! And yes, Uncharted 2 is my favorite game as well. I've been gaming for over fifteen years, that's saying a lot.

duplissi3123d ago

yes naughty dog and bioware ftmfw... my two favorite studios

RememberThe3573123d ago

I love their games and always have bu they always seem to lack something. I can't ever put my finger on it, but it always feels like something is missing tin their games. I would personally put Kojima Productions at the top of my list then Naughty Dog, then Sony Santa Monica, then Rockstar, then BioWare. Clover would have been at the top of my list, but they are gone now :(

NeoBasch3122d ago

Clover Studio = Platinum Games (makers of Bayonetta)

Al Bundy3123d ago

Agreed. Uncharted 2 is my personal best game ever too and I definitely agree that Naughty Dog is the best developer today.

UnSelf3123d ago

LOL omg i took a shot in the dark and its working!

i swear guys, look out for me in another big article and watch how i get a ton of agrees in that article.

starvinbull3123d ago

I think the point is that yes right now they are. They have made best use of this generations technology and capabilites.
They have a great engine, great gameplay, great multiplayer and of course hand in hand with that is a thriving community.
Problem is though, all those things could be said about MM if you amplify the extent to which they have gathered together a community and lessen the extent to which the graphics in LBP1 are regarded.

Bungie? With Halo 1 though not since then i would say being as they haven't done anything markedly different.

Valve? Used to be the best certainly with the releases of HL1 and then again with HL2 and then again with the orange box.

SE? Not since FF7 or earlier since Chrono Trigger.

Bioware? They do what they do better than anything else yet I don't believe they have made a truly complete (video, audio, gameplay) gaming experience like the others have.

Nintendo? Two quality releases this year yet not on next gen hardware.

Sega? If only they were in the running.

Any other Sony exclusive developer barring Sony studios like santa monica? No the other devs haven't provided a single AAA game this generation though they have all produced excellent titles without exception I have to say.

Set aside the fact that Uncharted 2 is a great game, just look at what they did in only two years and how much attention was taken to detail the world from physics, environmental AI, lighting, and so much more. The reason why I've been praising Naughty Dog so much is because their game world oozes with details in every corner that you just don't see in other games. It's not about texture quality or how much is going on on screen, it's about how they have developed tools to take into account such minute details in the world that truly make them my favorite development team out there.

If Naughty Dog was to do an RPG, I am sure we would be presented with one of the most technically vivid worlds ever on the console.

LordMarius3123d ago

OH 4 Bubbles....... I feel the urge to take one...must....resist

nycredude3123d ago

Yeah so rare to see 4 bubbles these days. If Naughty Dog was to do an RPG or open world game i would jizz with excitement, seriously.

Syronicus3123d ago

And they develope for the best console on the market... Go figure.

IrishAssa3122d ago

Know I'm going to lose all my bubbles over this but anyway. Best game ever? Really? That's too high of a praise. It's definately up there and I would give it best Action Adventure. That's all though. It is the best Tps at the moment and will be for some time.

I don't see how people can call it the greatest ever though. Great gameplay, Graphics and characters(besides the last boss, I didn't really care for him) is this game in a nutshell. It's missing Great story and powerful music imo, the best game would need a truly memorable moment too.
There is alot of games remembered for their moment such as FF7 death of Aerith. God of war is a good example of this to, it's missing the characters in my opinion and gameplay was only at it's best when fighting Titans(bubble buster right here), I liked Kratos and all but Revenge is a done and dusted theme. Revenge should be a side story for everything in my opinion

I'll compare it too Mgs3. At the time it had those great graphics, music, gameplay, Story and characters. Memorable moment? How about the end of it. Finding out what the boss was really up know what I mean?

mal_tez923122d ago

But Uncharted 1 & 2 are my first and second favourite games ever.

Awookie3122d ago

Yea i liked the first more too maybe because i did not expect as much but was blown away one of my first ps3 games

This article speaks the truth.

belal3123d ago

talk good about uncharted 2. uncharted 2 has set the benchmark on action adventure genre, gow3 on hack and slash, mgs4 on stealth and killzone 2 ( soon killzone 3) on fps sci fi genre.

Colonel-Killzone3123d ago (Edited 3123d ago )

Can possibly be true. Uncharted 2 is an amazing game and a lot of developers have been inspired by Uncharted 2.
