Nathan Drake: Redeemed?

Erik G of writes:

"Is Nathan Drake a monster? It’s a question that many have asked and a topic many seem to be divided on. To elaborate, Uncharted hero Nathan Drake has probably killed more people in Uncharted 2, than any other action game star throughout their whole career. I don’t know if that statistic is true, but I’m going to nod my head while typing it to make me think its true. It at least seems that way. Many of the areas in the game required you to clear the area before proceeding and in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Zoran Lazarevic’s private army stands no chance against Drake and either the old man or his plucky sidekick."

Why is Nathan Drake the only video game character that gets crap for killing bad guys? It's not like he's shagging prostitutes in the back of a car then brutally murdering them with a baseball bat for their hard earned cash, yes I'm looking at you Nico.

Mario pulls turtles out of their shells and stamps on them!

Maybe Drake needs a license, seems to work for James Bond.

But what you said about Nico is player choice, the actions that the players makes nico do doesnt represent his real character.

Yeah that's true but you're still required to murder a hell of a lot of people to progress through the game, as well as a lot of other unsavory tasks.

Niether Drake nor Nico WANT to harm anyone they are just forced to do it throughout the game, however Drake is the only one who gets crap for it in articles.

Or rather, Nico is open enough to have multiple interpretations based on how the player plays the game.

As long as bad guys carry weapons the hero is going to have to end up killing some of them.

How many people has Indiana Jones killed? Is it OK just because they are Nazi's?

I don't recall any outrage over this scene

he gets shit for being a good guy because hes such a bad good guy. he dont just beat them up he beats there ass and kills them. hes a monster and i love him for it!

miyamoto2438d ago

Now they are nit picking on a video game character?

They guy has really took that quote from Lazarevich and blown it up out of proportion.

How low can one go?

I love how the pic on N4G looks like Nathan Drake is thinking "What the hell is the author writing about me?"
