IncGamers: Uncharted 3 devs "want to bring to the industry up and raise the level of the games".
"When we caught up with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's lead game director, Justin Richmond, we asked him about the new direction of Tomb Raider and how it feels to be imitated by such a genre-defining franchise." Tomb Raider "imitating" Uncharted? Seriously? @alldayeveryday - I don't agree with that. Uncharted is definitely inspired by Tomb Raider but it has raised the bar for third person action games with its quality. Still, saying Tomb Raider imitates Uncharted is just ignorant.
Sure, Tomb Raider has been around for much longer than Uncharted. However you can't deny that the new game has taken a few pages from Uncharted.
Well Tomb Raider games of the past certainly had a completely different look and atmosphere about them. The game definitely looks like it was inspired by Uncharted in many aspects. Yes Uncharted was inspired by Tomb Raider as well, nothing wrong with things going both ways.
er call him ignorant them ... Karl Stewart of Crystal Dynamics : "Uncharted influences everyone's game not just Tomb Raider. How can it not? You don't get better then 30+ game of the years." Without going as far as copy , they arent denying some inspiration . Especially when both series had very little in common before the reboot , beyond themes and some cues from TR as well .
Maybe in interactive cinematic manner, few others might say Uncharted is inspired by Indi Jones, not Tomb Raider.
wouldn't indy have inspired them both?
You're an idiot jelly. Just because Uncharted took inspiration from tomb raider it doesn't then follow that a future tomb raider release cannot take inspiration from uncharted. Your logic is that of a 5 year old kid, no joke. Saying this new tomb raider isn't imitating uncharted is beyond ignorant. I'm actually disappointed at this blatant rip off of uncharted by tomb raider because I enjoy a good puzzle game.
@JellyJelly The new Tomb Raider not the old ones, its clear that they took cues from the Uncharted series if you saw the gameplay piece at E3. Think and make sure you know what you're talking about before you go on a rant.
ND are sure classy guys, they always show respect to competition and they don't hesitate to share ideas and help improving the industry as a whole.
Very humble is Naughty Dog.
Buy Uncharted 3 i must.
Many of their fans should try walking in their footsteps.
Even if Naughty Dog make shitty games, I would love them. They are so humble and nice. I said it here few month back, but how many games did have names of other devs in ending titles? And whats more, they have there devs like bungie, epic (well kind of exlusive to X brand) which works exlusivly for competitors. Stay awesome ND, you've made a awesome games and you don't act like a superstar. Thats one thing you really don't see every day...
I agree I am a fan of the team since my Crash 1 became one of my all time favourites. Also to all, if you haven't watched the making of Uncharted 2 which is on the game disk you simply must. ND are so charismatic.
I wonder what MS thinks of ND
Good question. Probably pissed off that the best exclusive PS3 has to offer is better than its direct competitor this year! Having said that, Gears 3 sold huge numbers so, they probably don't give a sh*t!
but at the end of the day...epic is multiplatform and ND isnt....so the burning question still is was does ms think of nd?!?!?!? im dying to know!
Why are they honored? Tomb Raider looks about as different to Uncharted as Uncharted looks to Mario Brothers. From what I saw the new Tomb Raider looked more like Survivor (if it was real). While Uncharted has always had its feet firmly planted in the Indiana Jones side of the equation since inception. So they can be honored all they want, its not necessary. Sounds like plagiarism to me.
the tomb raider(reboot) trailer looks as good or possibly better than uncharted to me, I think it will be a next gen title for NextBox, ps4, Wii U and PC! Uncharted directly took ideas from tomb raider and indiana jones and kinda 'sammiched' them, the concept was actually made by Awesome-o....lol...I kid.....I kid Both very good games, uncharted did a lot of refining of the genre, Tomb Raider has no choice but to one up it's apprentice! If it came out looking and playing like tomb raider underworld(an awesome game in it's own right btw) people would dismiss it!
who's talking? a company that rip off tomb raider..lol
how bad is it when an old franchise like TR has to take a new direction thanks to a new game like Uncharted... Tomb Raider just became the poor mans Uncharted lol
I would actually love a Tomb Raider/Uncharted collaboration by Naughty Dog (Sony & Crystal Dynamics! The game could be split in different ways, with Drake's parts more action oriented and Lara's parts more puzzle-based. Of course my idea is wishful thinking, but I think the chemistry between Lara and Drake (not too much though, I love me some Elena) could be one of the greatest things to enter the gaming world!
Guys lets face it, Tomb Raider was out longer and Naughty Dog quite obviously copied Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider devs). But then when Tomb Raider takes a little off on Uncharted (I honestly can't see it???) Uncharted fans decide to outrage in anger when it was UNCHARTED that took the whole concept of their game from TOMB RAIDER when the first game came. And for your information, the whole Tomb Raider reboot story was decided way back when Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was being developed BUT Uncharted 3 and it's story wasn't announced until after that! So clearly it is Uncharted copying Tomb Raider. Full Stop.
