I like uncharted but I never understood how Drake can be this charming adventure seeker, and mass murderer at the same time lol. The shooting mechanics dont fit with Drakes character, but the platforming and puzzle solving do (my favorite elements of uncharted). If I had to sneak around killing a couple guys out of necessity I can see that, but needing a machine gun t take out entire armies for treasure? That's out of character.

I get the authors point and I agree with it. Morality systems are usually ineffective unless BioWare handles it.
