'The Uncharted series is steeped in history; its protagonist claims to be a descendent of famed explored Sir Francis Drake, and each plot unfolds, Indiana Jones-like, as a piece of fantasy-laden historical fiction. The latest chapter of the series, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, revolves around the mystery of real-life Franciscan friar Marcos de Niza and the seven cities of gold he claimed to have discovered. Despite playing out like something straight from a serial adventure, the story reflects a great deal of historical research. I just wish the creators had dabbled in a little more literary history in the process, too. They might have stumbled across one of William Shakespeare's more famous chestnuts: "To thine own self be true."
