In 2011, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception put a bow on Uncharted. Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher rekindled their marriage and Nathan, in particular, seemed to quench his thirst for insane adventure. Trilogies are popular and effective creative arcs—foundation, realization, and precision—and Uncharted's three entries helped define the PlayStation 3's software library. Cover-based shooting was hot, Naughty Dog's signature performance capture was second to none, and the HD-generation was a perfect fit for cinematic action. The fantasy of playing a blockbuster movie was made a reality, leaving Uncharted feeling relevant and clever in its time and place.
