Uncharted 3 Does Female Characters and Story Right

My major issues with Uncharted 3 occurred late in the game. So if you want to avoid spoilers (and you should) it may be wise to go play the game and come back. I can safely say I loved the game and recommend it, I just can’t quite review it without either being absurdly evasive or spoiling it. Sorry.

Can video game developers (coughcough Rocksteady coughcough) stop and take note of what Naughty Dog has been doing with the Uncharted series.? Because Rock Steady might just have the best women characters in video games at the moment. While they’re not leads and they don’t run the show, they’re smart, nuanced characters who aren’t hypersexualized. They wear real people clothes (and both Elena and Chloe have actually gotten more conservative with their style over the series) and talk like real people. They don’t operate using only their vaginas. They like shooting bad guys and hunting for treasure and helping out friends. Also the actresses playing them have both headlined popular SyFy shows.

The Uncharted series puts story and characters first and it shows. These are games I power through not because I want achievements or the satisfaction of completing them but because I want to see what happens next. A few years ago at a keynote Steven Spielberg said that games would only be succ...

while i like the article, i do have to say Chloe ass was oversexulased in uncharted 2 there is no denying that!

It was and they certainly drew attention to it but still to a lesser extent than most games. Personally I would have liked it a little bigger but then I like curvy women.

Chloe looked freaky in Uncharted 2, looks a lot better in 3.

She looked like an anime character with those eyes in U2. You can tell they heavily reworked her face to look more human in Uncharted 3.

And they did the total opposite with Elena.

Agreed! ND did a fine job with Chloe this time around. <3 Chloe Frazer!
