I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: I’m not a huge fan of the Uncharted series.
However, this brave and unpopular opinion of mine has been formed without properly experiencing the games. I’ve played a little bit of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and even less of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, but that’s about it. At the minute, I’d say I’m relatively impartial on the whole; I’ve never been captivated enough to show much of an interest but I’ve always been convinced that the series is ‘overrated’ and have often labelled it as such.
So, I thought I’d finally bite the bullet and experience one of the most revered game series of all time. I have gathered up all of my prejudice and I’ve thrown it to one side whilst I work my way through the Nathan Drake Collection with open eyes. Once I’ve finished them all and then Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End too, I feel that I’ll be sufficiently qualified to say whatever the hell I want to about the whole series.
Who knows how long that will take me, but if the Nathan Drake’s story manages to keep me invested then I’ll write up exactly what I think in a super-long, blog post extravaganza! Will I despise the series? Will I begin to see what the fuss is about? Or, will I have been fully converted to the light side of the force?
Well, you’ll have to wait and see…
In between now and then, I’ll reblog this post and add a few thoughts here and there.
This is not an announcement, this is a warning.
