Uncharted Needs to be More Like Until Dawn

GR

I like Nathan Drake. Nathan Drake is fun. As video game portmanteaus of existing film and TV action heroes go, he’s by far my favourite. Marcus Fenix might be more imposing, and Master Chief more stoically capable, but Drake’s human, self-effacing megamix of Ford, Fillian and Russell wins it for me every time. Basically he’s a great protagonist and I don’t want him to change, is what I’m saying.

Well not radically, anyway. I don’t want Uncharted 4 to deliver a hardbitten, chain-smoking Drake, with an outspoken penchant for ‘70s psych-rock and a slightly racist attitude toward the Welsh. Nor do I want Uncharted 4 to be the game that presents The Big Dramatic Turning Point for his character, those incoming interactions with his long-lost brother turning him into a sensitive poet-philosopher, mourning the loss of each and every plugged goon over the course of his new-gen adventures.

Correction:

Uncharted needs to be more like Uncharted

And....

Until Dawn needs to be more like Until dawn.

They are doing just fine playing the roles they are playing. Considering they are different genras to begin with and they are playing their roles perfectly as well as appealing to the gamers who prefer those specific games.

Nothing needs to be changed with either game.

Obviously you didn't read the article... A well written piece that was expressing the idea of player choice within the Uncharted universe similar to that of Until Dawn. A hybrid of ideas already established making the player immersion stronger.
Imo, ND has done an incredible job of placing you the gamer in Drake's shoes. I like it the way it's been done thus far. If ND entertained this idea for a new IP, I know they'd be able to pull it off successfully.

'but Drake’s human, self-effacing megamix of Ford, Fillian and Russell wins it for me every time.'

Who is Fillian?

Nathan Fillian.. The actor from Castle and several films who looks exactly like Nathan Drake. He actually has a role in Halo 5.

TwoForce1119d ago

He's also have a role in Destiny The Taken King.

The Actor from Firefly*

When I think fillion as Drake I think Mal from Firefly :)

Speaking of fillion in halo 5, a large chunk of the Firefly cast were reunited for Halo:ODST

Uncharted Needs to be More like Shaq Fu.

Uncharted Needs to be More like Silent Hill

Uncharted Needs to be More like Sonic the Hedgedog

Uncharted Needs to be More like Angy Birds

Gamesradar.com needs to be less like that article.

Most 3rd person adventures need to be more like Uncharted. Tomb Raider is trying desperately hard to incorporate all of the little things that make Uncharted special but falls short on execution and delivery.

Every game needs to be more like Uncharted and Uncharted needs to be more like every other game
