Between Uncharted 2 & 3 for me. Kept the light hearted style Naughty Dog are known for while also having serious moments. In general, the Uncharted franchise nailed the perfect sense of adventure.

I wish they'd go back to that style.
Same for me. I'd always play the trilogy back to back...

So hard to pick between tlou 1 and 2

The crazy thing is that I don't think they've ever made a bad game since crash.
i found jak and daxter 1 to be a wee bit inferior to other platformers at the time, camera and control wise... but it's been a helluva long time sincei played it on something bigger than a Vita lol i may have matured since

Uncharted 2 edges it. it was just mindblowing at the time. the graphics was just far above anything we had ever seen before on console.

I hope their next IP is still mature and dark, none of that cartoony Fortnite art style shit that’s plaguing the industry

Shakka43 Shakka43 kanjobazooie kanjobazooie I see you are also connoisseurs

lol people think Uncharted 2 is better than TLOU/TLOU2?

Yeah wow UC2 is overrated.

It is, but calling anything else overrated in the same sentence as TLOU makes that sentence somewhat redundant

I think the Uncharted series is the best thing they do, and I really enjoyed all of them, Uncharted 2 and 4 were the best, but I voted for Uncharted 2.

TLOU / Remastered is the correct answer.

It was the most impactful and showed how devs can make big budget AAA games with a more serious tone for mature audiences. Not saying it was the first, but it was probably the biggest that a lot of people played.

TLOU2 pushed storytelling in the gaming medium to new levels.

It's close between U2 and TLOU1.
Overall I'd still go with Uncharted 2, I just find it really fun to play and to this day it's still one of the few games that truly nails the cinematic experience. The big setpiece moments found a great balance between cool scripted stuff while still giving the player enough freedom to feel like they are taking part in the action instead of just walking in a straight line as cool shit happens around them, which is something that a lot of other games, including newer ones like Uncharted 4, struggle with.

TLOU1 has the more emotionally engaging story and the fighting has a more tense and impactful feeling to it, but I found the overall gameplay loop and presentation slightly less engaging.
