    I can't believe there wasn't a thread about this game (other than the one for the demo) yet. For shame people... :D 

    Anyway, I started playing Uncharted the other day and am blown away by this game. Why? Because Nate Drake is one of the most amazing characters I have ever played in a game. It's refreshing to play a main character who isn't stoic and just matter of fact. They guy's really funny and down to Earth and it's a nice change of pace.

    Game play is top notch. Graphics and audio are stellar. I love the rest of the characters. Can't wait to finish it up and hopefully play a sequel or two.

    Kudos to Naughty Dog for this awesome game.

    Just completed it. Absolutely awesome graphics, story, gameplay and characters, and I happily look forward to any sequels.

    Well...not before we get Jak & Daxter 4, anyway.

    Game's had me rolling a couple of times. Example, this morning Elena tells Nate to be careful as he enters a secret passage. He tries to be all cool as he looks over his shoulder at her and tells her not to worry. Then, as he turns back around, he bangs his head right into the bottom of the hidden doorway. That just doesn't happen to heroes in video games, lol.

    Did anyone else think Nate sounded like Nathan Fillion (Malcom Reynolds)? And that Elena looked like Jennifer Aniston?

    Yes, and he even kinda looked like him. I am convinced that they are all Firefly fans because they even got the show/movie's composer to do the music to the game.

    My favorite like in Uncharted is the little mumbling he does when he's getting shot at "How do I get myself into this crap".

    This guy isn't Master Chief, or Marcus, or Naruko, or even Dante. He's just "some guy", which is where the charm comes in.

    Only game (exclusive) out for the PS3 that looks good to me. Still not enough to make me want to throw away my money on one.

    And of course there is God of War III...fucking Sony, the least they could have done was to finish the storyline before moving to a new console.

    Um, you mean like Microsoft did with Halo? Or the Resident Evil franchise which went all over different consoles instead of sticking to the PS1?

    I think he QFTed me in great detail, hehe, because yeah, the guy who did Firefly's music did Uncharted's.

    And on that topic, you can really hear the cues, whenever you are in a firefight and you kill the last guy and those deep drums roll.... the same ones that roll when a Firefly episode ends.

    I like the game. Though I'm at a point I'm finding it difficult to continue.

    The game needs a freaking "lock on target" for the firefights, because aiming properly with a goddamn control pad is impossible.

    At least in Mass Effect I could be 10 feet off my target and the "cpu target assist" would kick in and kill the bastards.

    Meh, don't give two shits or a fuck about Halo (second most overrated franchise ever, the most overrated being Final Fantasy).

    As for RE...I see nothing wrong with it going multiplatform..at least the games that really counted were available to everyone (IIRC).

    So about 3/4 of the gaming population are wrong, not to mention most major gaming magazines? Ok, sure. Anyways, back on topic, Ive still need to get this game. Someone said it was short. Is it shorter than Heavenly Sword or just as short?
