Personally I'm going to go with

Uncharted 2
Uncharted 3
Uncharted 4
Golden Abyss

I know Drakes Fortune isn't an amazing game graphically today now since time has passed but I loved the story and I think it featured plenty of Sully and Elena equally.

I can barely remember GA so I don't include it in my list. I'd swap uc3 and 4. 2nd game was just such a fantastic game it's by the best in the series. While the first had a few issues it was still a fantastic adventure and had an amazing twist that I just didn't see coming which is why I have it at number 2. 4 is a good game but the story just didn't hold up as well. The story for 3 just wasn't all that great and felt like a copy of 2 at times with the *spoilers* separation from Elaina again and replacing the train disaster with a plane disaster.

AspiringProGenji1323d ago

Uncharted GA is memorable to me because of the exploration and puzzles. Bend Studios had the right idea of exploration for the series.
I wished ND did something like that for U4

My ranking of th uncharted series:
TLoU 2
Last of us

jcgamer1323d ago

Naughty Dog was on FIRE 🔥 during the PS3 era....not since Rockstar's EPIC PS2 run have we seen a studio put out so many AAA, award winning titles on one console in so little time....Uncharted, Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3 AND a little obscure game called The Slay Of Us, just wow 😳

DialgaMarine1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

Naughty Dog truly is a fantastic studio. It would be amazing to see Guerila Games and Sucker Punch reach their level someday.

Ashunderfire861323d ago

Really Uncharted 4 as your second worst?

I thought that one was the best in the series with Uncharted 2 being my second favorite, Uncharted 3 third, Uncharted Lost Legacy fourth, and Golden Abyss dead last.

-Foxtrot1323d ago

It doesn't mean I think the game was awful or bad...I just don't think the story/multiplayer was up to scratch like the previous ones.

Multiplayer had become even more gimmick like instead of skill drifting further away from what Uncharted 3 did like they didn't learn anything...and as for the story well you know by now my issues. You just don't add a long lost brother story arc in the last story you are doing in a franchise. Can you honestly imagine if Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings did that and it spent most of the plot explaining the new character rather then focusing on wrapping up the story and the characters it already had.

The chapters in Uncharted 4 with Sully and the ones on the Island at the end of the game with Elena are the most Uncharted like chapters the game has. They're brilliant, it's just a shame they didn't stick with them and add in Chloe for the rest of the game. Amy had the right idea if they were going to make Sam a villain. confirm. I DO NOT think it's a shit game, I just think others were better.

ninsigma1323d ago

On a technical level 4 was the best but in terms of pacing and story 2 just flipping rocks over them all.

HeisenbergX1323d ago

@Ashunderfire86 Everyone and their mom knows that UC2 and 4 are the best in the series. IMO UC4 beats Among Thieves any day in every department except pacing in the story.

Foxtrot just has some personal problems with UC4 like the brother character and the big black strong lady with afro hair kicking his ass.

Starman691323d ago

Lost legacy is awsome!!

iNcRiMiNaTi1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

UC2 is definitely the best but I wasn't a fan of UC4. Too many conveniently placed crates whenever they needed to climb up, even Lost Legacy acknowledges it. Lost Legacy's end sequence is also a nod to UC2 as well.

I think for a game that came out when it did it still looks pretty damn good. What ND did with water physics was pretty damn impressive. Get in knee high water And only your jeans are wet at the knees and below. And he stays wet until it dries minutes later. Way back in 2007! And getting to know the characters was pretty damn cool.

My list....

Golden Abyss was trash so it's not even listed. I wouldn't consider any of what's listed "worst" but that game was awful.

Dark_Knightmare21323d ago

Golden abyss def wasn't awful

Smokingunz1323d ago

I agree with your order.people don't give drakes fortune enough credit it was a great game. Howeveri didn't like 3

LoveSpuds1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

I am with you Foxtrot, I think Uncharted is grossly underrated when compared to the other titles in the series. For me, it absolutely nails the story and has one of my fave villains in Eddie Raja. While the others are more impressive on a technical and production level, I have always loved the story in the first game.

I adore every one of these games, there is barely anything to choose between them but my order probably goes:
Uncharted 2
Uncharted 4
Uncharted 3

I hate to put Uncharted 3 in last place because I also feel that game is relatively under appreciated too but I absolutely loved it. The story was fantastic with great villains, a fabulous sidekick in Cutter and some of the most impressive set pieces in the whole series, both the cruise liner and air crash are so well done.

Dark_Knightmare21323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

I respect your ranking but mine is way different. 1. Def Uc 4 2. It's a tie between Uc 2 and lost legacy. 3. Uc 3 4.Uc 1 5.golden abyss. Uc 1 was the game that made me fall in love with Uc and ND but it's by far the weakest out of the nd developed uncharteds and I would never ever put it as high as the 2nd spot and def not above Uc 3 or 4 like you did. Uc 2 is when it really hit its stride and with the following Uc games it cemented the series as my favorite video game series ever

bloodbond1323d ago

haha Foxtrot, have a taste of your own community ;)

ruefrak1323d ago

I think I almost agree with you except that I enjoyed Golden Abyss a lot more. I'd put it right after the original. My only complaint with the game was that Drake and Chase had zero chemistry. She was a really poor character.

Uncharted 2
Uncharted 4
Uncharted Lost Legacy
Uncharted 1
Uncharted golden abyss
Uncharted fight for fortune
And then Uncharted 3 lol
I freaking hate that game with a passion both story and multiplayer.

Movefasta19931323d ago

Uncharted 3 was trash,the visuals were amazing but the story,the main villain ,the god awful pacing ,the terrible spam brawl fest in the opening,that game was terrible.some of the launch mp maps like chateau and airstrip were good tho(I wish they'd bring em back)

AspiringProGenji1323d ago

Uncharted 3 gets more hate than it deserves. It was rushed and had pacing problems, but it was still a great game. I really enjoyed the setpieces and thought it had the best in the series until U4. In comparison to other Unchared games it may be top bottom, but in its own it is still a great game

My ranking would be:
Lost Legacy
Uncharted GA

Razzer1323d ago

3 wasn't trash at all, imo. It simply wasn't the best Uncharted. It was still great.

InTheLab1323d ago

A game with a 92 meta score is trash?

ninsigma1323d ago

Yeah 3 was extremely weak in comparison to the rest of the series.

Gardenia1323d ago

For me it's

1. UC1, UC2, UC3, UC4

DFresh1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

-Uncharted 1 (First in the series and was hard to judge. Story mode was good.)

-Uncharted 2 (Story mode epic. Co Op mode is fantastic. Multiplayer was balanced and pretty fast paced. Nothing cheap or OP.)

-Uncharted 3 (Story mode epic. Co Op was meh. Improved on everything from a multiplayer stand point minus the kick backs. Sprinting and grenade throwback is a plus.)

-Uncharted 4 (Story mode epic. Co Op was sloppy. Multiplayer is a buggy mess. Not to mention no regenerative health, no sprinting, no grenade throwback, recoil on the guns was unbalanced, etc.)

-Uncharted: Lost Legacy (Made the majority of the fixes that should of been added in UC4. Single player epic. Co Op is not a rushed mess like Uncharted 3 & 4. Multiplayer is a lot more polished and smoother then UC4 by a long shoot. Still don't like the reviving system, the lack of sprinting and lack of grenade throwback but I'll get over it.)

-Uncharted: Golden Abyss (Story mode is epic. It's not a full fledged Uncharted game but for what it is on the handheld it's a good experience.)

My rank:
1.) UC2
2.) UC: Lost Legacy
3.) UC3
4.) UC1
5.) UC4
6.) UC: Golden Abyss

Thatguy-3101323d ago

What uncharted 3 did you play? Lol
Doesn't lost legacy and uncharted 4 share the same multiplayer?

mark_parch1323d ago

ive just played through Nathan drake collection for the first time and thought 3 was better than 2. 3 has some amazing set pieces and I thought the pacing was better also improved AI and controls. I thought 2 started to drag and was really boring at times. number 1 was trash

MegamanXXX1323d ago

I liked the sprinting in multiplayer. Sucks they don't have that option anymore.

Sunny_D1323d ago

Uncharted 4 has no regenerative health? What are you talking about? Yes it does. Wtf. If you stop getting shot at after a few seconds, your health goes back to full.

Also, the multiplayer in Lost Legacy is the same multiplayer for Uncharted 4. Lmao, don't tell me you're falling for a placebo effect. Smh

Nacho_Z1323d ago

Nice to see the consensus that 2 is the best, they're all very good games but that one is special.

robtion1323d ago

2 was amazing when it came out. A huge graphical leap over everything else at the time, great pacing, and mindblowing set pieces that have now become an industry standard in these types of games.

I absolutely love The Lost Legacy though. I think it is the best Uncharted since Uncharted 2.

Kribwalker1322d ago

I really didn't like the first one, so I've been waiting to play the rest of the collection....the first one turned me off the series tho

P_Bomb1321d ago

Yes krib we know, you've only reminded us a dozen times. smh
