Here is where I would like to see what you all think the next uncharted should be like. A 4th great uncharted will be a tough one, trying not to let us down or doing the same thing over again. So post what you want to see and hopefully the right people see this.
So here is my idea is that Drake and Elena have kid together. (Which works with the the 3rd) After hearing all of her dad's daring and exciting adventures, she wants to learn the trade too. This way you can get a female perspective and Drake gets to fill in Sully's spot. (I can't imagine there not ever being a Sully-like character. Who would be better then her own dad? ) Teaching her across the US just so she can get a taste before going around the world. And knowing drake, his kid of course is also a trouble magnet. I know plenty (including myself) would love to play as a female character in uncharted. But this could as backfire seeing as it would be impossible to ignore the similarities in tomb raider. But Lara croft can't be the only female badass.
Too many gamers have unrealistic expectations, so I'd say that they should worry more about a quality story than anything. Make it personal. Someone gets kidnapped or the like - UC3 seemed really inspired by the Indiana Jones and Last Crusade movie in some ways. I would like them to have a slighty more 'horror related' type adventure.
I'd do something along the lines of Drake looking for a rare item, comes across and gets tangled up in a Satanic cult type group - excuse to showcast 'scary creatures' on occasion ala UC1 in the later levels - stuff like that
