You got me. I was ready to come in and type, "WHAT?!!!"
Seriously though, I had the exact same feeling. I just got my PS3 this April so, naturally, I picked it up with KZ2, LBP and MGS4. All the enormously hyped games (and rightly so, they were all unbelieveable). But then I just happened to see Uncharted at the video store one night and picked it up. I had heard of it before, but not in the "legendary title" sense or anything like that. I still don't know how much the suprise (non-hype) factor had to do with it, but I swear my first play-through of Uncharted was the best experience I've had on PS3 so far. The story, animations, voice acting, gameplay, everything just blew me away. Even the little details like the fact that you can see when Drake's clothes get wet show the amount of thought and effort put into this game.
Naughty Dog are geniuses. Bring on Among Thieves!!
As an alternative to an adjective to describe a scene of surreal excitement, intense action, unexpected twists, or when something goes down, special terms and phrases are used after "Ooohhh!!!!!!", names of places in New York City especially BROOKLYN!!!!! and places within Brooklyn.
I see what you did there
Admit it, you were coming in here looking for a fight, weren't you? I'm on to you...
wow, it's that good huh? i might just get this game, all the press coverage for part 2 is pretty much tempting me to get it, but i guess i should check out the first one too...hehe
Yep, might as well check it out now since it just became one of the Greatest Hits releases and the price dropped to $29.
To be honest, I think Uncharted is very overhyped. It was a good game - very good, really. But I wouldn't call it "the best PS3 game". IMHO, it's outside of the top 5 on the PS3. There are several games that beat it in terms of graphics, gameplay, sound, story, and additional features.
I spent just under 20 hours on this game, earned the platinum, and haven't touched it since.
That said, I will be buying Uncharted 2. I already have my pre-order in.
