The Uncharted franchise was built from nothing, evolved the TPS genre and has become the ultimate benchmark for current-gen games. An envy by every game developers, a masterpiece and an instant success.
Oh Uncharted how I love thee.
Lotta people wont like that title. I'm not talking about the game, but the title of the article.
that's because Skyrim is king :>
@MAJOR: That depends if you prefer at your own pace open-world WRPGs or more linear yet engaging action games. Or both!
man i dream of uncharted every night lol.. a continuous dream lol
really i have no words to describe the series and its cinematic appeal to its storytelling. All in all, UNCHARTED 3 will be the best game this year!!!:-) thumbs up if you agree with me guys... be honest...
No, not for me for example. That's just your opinion.
ohh come on November!!
Not the best for me, but definitely in my top 3.
[email protected] Nathan why do you keep burning through my wallet!?! XD
I love the Uncharted story so, so much. UC2 was so damn good. Can't wait to see what happens next.
the gameplay is tops......the graphics are tops The art is boring, the character design is boring.
The troll is someone who cant handle a different opinion than his own. Its sad I was completelty honest. I own both games. Grow up
I'm on my phone kid, or i would post pics that make your opinion about the art look like some serious trolling. And the chars are likable and engaging... Its not often I laugh at video games, and but uncharted does that. Sure, you might have a different opinion, but my opinion about that is: your opinion sucks.
The King is Snake my friend! The HD Collection is top on my list. With this a strong second for sure. Then some BF3 to top it off. Waiting for the new Assassin's Creed as well.
It's the only PS3 exclusive coming out this fall that is actually worth the hype. Although if history is any judge the enemies will be incredibly repetive as in the first two titles. Graphics and mechanics however should be brilliant.
looking more foward to Dark souls but then its this and BF3. Cant wait!!!
The title just invokes flame war. Had it been titled "Gears 3 Is King". It'd already have 100 comments. I cant speak much for Uncharted as I haven't gotten around to even unwrapping the games myself, but it looks pretty fun. My backlog is pretty stacked. I don't however think the Uncharted games are the greatest thing since sliced bread, I did play the beta and it was fun, but not amazing or anything.
I think Gears and Uncharted (the only two games I'm buying to round out 2011) will both be fun but at the end of the day more of the same with some nice grahpics.
Uncharted 3 will be King of 2011 no doubt.
There is no doubt that Uncharted 3 is going to be an amazing single player experience. Uncharted has become the meca of franchise titles on the PS3 and will do doubt continue it's greatness moving forward into next gen. As for Uncharted being "king" come 2011, that is going to be up for debate. I personally feel that Gears of war 3 will trump Uncharted 3 sales wise. Review wise they will both be very close to each other. Maybe a 2-3 point difference with each being 90+ on meta. I personally don't think Uncharted will be King this last quarter but it will be right up there with the kings and be one of the kings.
If you're going by sales then neither will be King. That belongs to MW3. You say "I personally feel that Gears of war 3 will trump Uncharted 3 sales wise." Fair enough, but then you say "Review wise they will both be very close to each other. Maybe a 2-3 point difference with each being 90+ on meta." Gears 3 will most likely sell better than UC3 and you say so but UC3 will most likely score better than Gears 3 and you try to water it down by saying "they will be very close to each other". I think Gears 3 will sell better too but it won't be a runaway, wouldn't you agree? If you go by reviews then Uncharted 3 is the sequel to the highest rated HD exclusive this gen and the game that has won the most GOTY awards so I have no doubt that UC3 will trump all games in reviews and GOTY awards. Whatever game you think will trump UC3 just remember that UC3's prequel score higher than all game's prequels releasing this year. Gears 3 will be great but no matter how you "personally feel", it won't be King of anything. Sales? MW3 will be king. Reviews? UC3 has the best chance at being king there. GOTY awards? UC3 has the best chance at being king of GOTY awards.
@ StrongMan I understand you like following me around to see what I say next since you have a habit of replying to everything I say. I am flattered to be on your mind. Review wise we still don't know what each will be until they are released. You are speculating that Uncharted 3 will rate higher than Gears 3. That's fair, and I can accept that however as of right now the Gears franchise is higher rated than the Uncharted franchise overall. So it's a fair argument that both franchises are top of the line AAA franchises seeing as they are both 90+ overall franchises. There is nothing "watering down" in my comment as we both have yet to know which one will have the higher rated 3rd installment. If Gears 3 is higher than Uncharted 3 then my argument still stands. A couple average points difference is meaningless when they are both 90+ meta averages. Look at it this way, Uncharted 2 was rated 96 meta and Gears 93. That's a 3 point difference but are still over 90+ on meta. If we divide it by 10 we get a X/10 rating like what most sites rate it as. That means Uncharted 2 would be a .3 difference than Gears 2. Hardly seems to mean anything. If you want to believe that a simple 2-3 point difference is like comparing night to day, then that is your decision and I am fine with that. To me, anything that is a 2-3 point difference just means both games are in the same league with each other. Would you think having 2-3 cents more than your friend has as being more wealthy then them? Of course not because when you are both so close to a dollar, 2-3 cents different from each other is a pointless argument. I can understand why you want to talk about MW as being king. Sure. MW2 360 - 12.54 million MW2 PS3 - 9.24 million CoD BO 360 - 12.89 million CoD BO PS3 - 10.49 million Uncharted 2 - 4.74 million Gears of War 3 - 6.11 million Clearly you would be correct that MW/CoD would be king if it was sales alone. However since the article is saying that Uncharted 3 would be King, I was assuming they were talking about exclusives. Since the author of the article is saying Uncharted 3 will be king of 2011, why are you replying to me with your first bubble saying that MW3 will be king and not create your own comment string using your first bubble to counter argue the author stating that it will be MW3 that will be king and not Uncharted 3 since you seem to think that the author is referring all games and not just multiplats? Is it because you are tracking me and so felt the need to counter argue with me because I said I felt Gears 3 would be king this 2011 (an xbox 360 exclusive)? Uncharted 3 will do great sales and review wise, but I still feel, regardless of your "feelings" as what King actually means in this sense. The author does state: "Lets not forget Gears of war 3, Epic has declared that Gears of war 3 would be the biggest game ever, considering the fact that Epic knows the Xbox 360 inside out, we can’t rule out a possible contender for critical recognition." So to me, he is only talking about exclusives and recognizes Gears as a "critical" contender and NOT MW3 (since it's a multiplat and most likely won't score in the 90's on meta) and if we are basing this on sales, Gears will win. If we are basing it on reviews, then we will have to wait and see, but like I said, a 2-3 point difference is nothing when both games are going to be a 90+ regardless which of the 2 has the higher 1-3 point difference.
Evolved? How? Its got a great story and gameplay but evolved? Nope
As a PS3 owner, 2011 for me is between skyrim and UC3. But I wouldn't disagree with the title either...
Uncharted? I love that movie.
I think that everyone here with an individual mind who doesnt care about uncharted and see it as a normal adventure game with undeniable good graphics, normal story, normal art direction, and so-so gameplay, will get a lot of disagrees. It's a matter of tastes, but hey! it's N4G ater all.
Uncharted 3 will be King in Graphics, Gameplay, Story, Characters, Voice Acting, Holy Sh*t Moments, and Humour. It probably will not sell the most, or have the biggest online community. Oh well I can live with that.
