Why I Hope Uncharted 4 Doesn't Happen Soon

Let me get it out there first, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the ps3. In fact, I waited until the fall of 2008 to finally cave in and purchase the system. I was a proud owner of a used 60 GB, quite rare at the time. But I only purchased one game, MGS4. Certainly a great game, but it was the one title that piqued my interest... (PS3)

I actually thought Uncharted 3 grew Drakes character very well. Why is he motivated to treasure hunt? Because he has been raised as an orphan in a cruel Catholic orphanage and needed an escape route. He picked Sir Francis Drake. I mean how much exposition does this guy need. It's all there hidden cleverly in the dialogu.

With regards to Marlowe he may of missed the point of cerebral villains.

I totally agree. The fact that UC3 has the author asking questions such as why does Drake do what he does and what is his real name shows how much depth was added to the character. It has me more excited for UC4 than I was for UC3, no longer is this simply a treasure hunting game for pure fame and fortune but a game with a human and flawed protagonist who is clearly damaged goods.

I loved Uncharted 3. People just think it's cool to dislike really high profile games. It happened with GTA4, it happened with Halo 3, and it's happening with Uncharted 3. I agree that Naughty Dog should take a break with Uncharted, and all signs point to the fact they already are with The Last of Us being unveiled. However, Uncharted 1, 2, 3, have been absolutely incredible games and probably my favorite new IP of this generation right next to Assassin's Creed.

IMO (being a HUGE AC fan), Assassin's needs to end next year, but not Uncharted.

The difference being that AC follows a large story arc spanning over 5 games, all stories connecting together in a meaningful way.

However, Uncharted feels more episodic, each game isnt connected together so tightly with an overall story arc. Which is why I would love there to be more games...as it wouldnt ruin anything already established.

AC however...is feeling a bit like lost, always leaving you hanging for more.

Again..this is from someone who considered Revelations as a personal 2011 GOTY, I hope that Ac3 if the final game for this gen, and we have an epic and satisfying conclusion.

"It lacked sex, added unnecessary cameos, and let’s not kid ourselves… there wasn’t even a final boss."

Stopped reading here, this probably says all you need to know about the author.
