Uncharted is overrated

Nobody was really talking about it anymore, until Sony came out with the 4th game announcement and the money-grabbing trilogy, but I guess that now it's the moment to seriously talk about the Uncharted games.

I personally think that they're fuckin' overrated, I mean, I'm not saying that they're that bad, but they're just average TPSs, pumped up with AAA graphics and cinematic cutscenes to cover up the poor gameplay that's at the core of them.

Nevertheless, gaming reviewers (maybe with a little help from $ony's cash) praised them as masterpieces, as if they were something unique and revolutionary. Expecially Uncharted 3 (which imo is the worst of all) has been critically hyper-acclaimed, although it's nothing special, as I said before just a mediocre TPS (1 and 2 are average/nice imo) with also too much QTEs.

Don't you also think that this saga got too much praise for what it's worth?

The PS3 finally had "a game", so they fans felt the need to overhype it. It was the Splatoon of it's time really.
>>
>>315615883
Ok
>>
>>315615714
[insert game here] is just a mediocre [insert said game genre here]

Prove me wrong.
>>
>>315615883
>implying that Uncharted can even be compared to Splatoon

I mean, at least Splatoon is original and funny although its fanbase sucks
>>
>>315615984
It's objective that Uncharted did not bring anything new to its genre, neither did it master it's standards. For example you can't say the first Gears of War is just a mediocre TPS, cause it introduced elements which revolutionised the genre

That has been the consensus on this site ever since they made the first game.

The only difference is that /v/ got tons of new users here over the course of the last gen that love to eat up AAA shit.
There are people defending Assassins Creed now.

We have CoD threads up RIGHT NOW.

this.

I mean, IGN and other shitty sites may even talk good about it, but who cares, people with a brain knows that all of these AAA titles are over-hyped and overrated.

funny how even on 4chan there's people who feels butthurt for hearing the truth about this kind of games

But at least he was the first one to have them. Uncharted just copied them cause they were "cool"

but GoW brought them to mainstream garbage (cliffyB genius xdxd) and then all shit like unchhuhrthaed started including it

or people that say stuff like bioshock infinite or TLOU are the best games ever

TLOU is at least overrated as much as Uncharted. And that's all I have to say.

Nope, I loved them. They were nice Indiana Jones styled adventures with some great voice acting and terrific environments. Not the greatest games ever, sure but certainly a pleasure to play through.
>>
>>315618136
nice != masterpiece
>>
We need to start separating games from toys. A game is something you can loose and requires strategy to win. A toy is something you take out of the box to have fun. Uncharted, Mass Effect, the Batman games and the like are all toys, not games - you can't loose in any of those and neither need a lot of strategy. You just go and play with it.
>>
>>315618214
They're not masterpieces but they get violently shitposted about on /v/ and unfairly so
>>
>>315617874

Vanquish, The Last of Us and Just Cause 3 were far better than UC and GoW.

Hell even RE5 and DD were better than that shit.
>>
>>315618296

Becausr they are generic and bland as fuck and the gameplay is just barely passable.
>>
>>315618263
First of all it's lose*

Secondly the definition of a game is "an activity that one engages in for amusement". They do not require failure states or strategies
>>
>>315618319
>Just Cause 3 were
nice

>Hell even RE5 and DD were better than that shit.
Is DD Dragons dogma?
And yeah RE5 was okay.
>>
>>315618421
Well what game do you prefer to them?
>>
>>315618319

Ok, I can take that one.
>rest
Oh c'mon, you can shitpost better than that.
>>
>>315618421

What is 'Undertale'?
>>
>>315618319
Only Vanquish. Last of Us is more of a stealth action game than a full third person shooter, Just Cause 3 isn't out but Just Cause 2 had massive problems with bland missions
>>
Naughty Dog games in general are overrated.
>>
Can someone explain to me why people consider something being overrated to be such a big deal?

If you get down to it overrated means a subjective perception of the subjective perception of a group of people and does in no way has any meaning about the actual quality of the thing you think is "overrated" since it still can be good just not as good as your perceived opinion about how good you think others think it is.
>>
>>315618482

DD was meant to be DS.

Although I would say DD is a much better action-adventure game than a generic linear tps like Uncharted. Its not a fair comparison though.
>>
>>315618526

I like many games. Uncharted is the worst Naughty Dog franchise so far.
>>
>>315618817
Why are you so bumblasted about the reviews? They're 4 years old now

I'm sorry people enjoy something more than you do. It must feel awful knowing people other people are having fun.

>Only Vanquish. Last of Us is more of a stealth action game than a full third person shooter, Just Cause 3 isn't out but Just Cause 2 had massive problems with bland missions

I meant JC2, it was a typo. The game had great combat and movement abilities and also had many great missions, although the stronghold capture ones were kinda repetitive.

You can play most of TLoU as a shooter, and it also has way better combat mechanics and enemy variety than Uncharted.
>>
>>315618686
this. Vanquish rocks, TLOU is as overrated as Unchee.

>>315618669
Undertale is a fuskin awesome Mother-like original and provocatory RPG. 100% worth playing

Butthurt pctards wishing they had devs with even a fraction of the talent Naughty Dog has bringing out high profile exclusives for their portstation.
>>
>>315618869

I don't care a lot about reviews, especially when companies like Nintendo, Sony and Konami are clearly in bed with the magazines.
>>
>>315619158
:^)
>>
>>315619131
I'd be mad if they were still making games like crash but no.
I have a ps3 anyway so I got to see how average TLOU and unchartered were.

The only Ps4 im sad about not having at the moment is bloodborne :'(
>>
>>315619131

Most people in /v/ own a PS3 these day, that shit argument doesn't work anymore.
>>
>>315619229

Nice meme.
>>
>>315618704

It means they are buttmad about OoT not being considered a flawless masterpiece anymore and that there are many modern games that are way better.
>>
>>315616067
Splatoon is not original or funny.
>>
>>315619237
^this.

I'm the OP, and I have a PS3 since 2008. If I say this it's because I played both Uncharted and TLOU and I objectively recognize that they're average games. ND was skilled? Maybe in the past (more for Jak and Daxter though, I never really liked CB although Crash 2 and 3 are good games), now they make average games which are just pumped up by their AAA graphics. To admit it is not being a "Sony hater" (I've got PS3 and also a Vita, and I'll get a PS4 when I have the money for Bloodborne and few other exclusives), is just being intellectually honest.
>>
>>315619463
On the contrary, OoT is being hated on a lot. Though its true that other Zeldas are better (like WW or MM)

Uncharted 2 deserves all the praise in the world. I doubt any of the other Uncharted games will get near it in quality. Its only flaw, in my opinion, was how impotent the guns felt. Other than that the game is perfect for what it was trying to be.

I am still under the impression that U2 has the best pacing for any video game.

>>315619094
>Vanquish rocks, TLOU is as overrated as Unchee

TLoU > Vanquish > > > GoW > Uncharted

Vanquish had some of the best combat in any TPS but it had very poor pacing, the setting and characters were also fairly dull. The Last of Us also has some really good multiplayer.
>>
>>315619769

Lucina a shit.
>>
>>315619883
Vanquish's pacing is 324872398723407234074230234 times better than U2, the fuck you say
>>
>>315620017

Was comparing it more with TLoU which has better pacing, albeit it gets too quiet for some people.

Vanquish has nothing but relentless action, which necessarily gets dull due to overexposure to it.

>impying every single other developer is making games just because of their good heart and not money

how does it feel to be sodomized by Valve, CIG and CDP RED?
>>
The Uncharted Series is the closest any adventure game has got to the feel indiana jones film style, i.e pacing story plot, action romance comedy Tomb Raider borrows many elements from indiana jones but is a game through and through which isn't to say it's a bad thing early games were good based on gamelplay elements, puzzles platforming and action when needed. I would have to say Uncharted is the closest a game has got to being cinematic as a movie, which is good and bad.
>>
>>315621779

>Naughty Dog haven't made a good game on PC

you forgot some words
>>
>>315615714
Uncharted games are good for a playthrough or two. Like an enjoyable action movie. You know it's true
>>
Naughty dog hasn't made a good game since Jak and Daxter.
>>
I still have a hard time believing the person responsible for Legacy of Kain went on to create Uncharted. What an intellectual downgrade.
>>
We can all agree Uncharted 2 and Pre patch/Beta Uncharted 3 multiplayer was great, right?
>>
>>315615714
It's an absolute piece of shit series. Cover shooter with contorller aim and no content, shit level design.

We know this, though. Tell it NeoGAF.
>>
You're an idiot.

It's considered as "good" because it's a PS exclusive. That's literally the only reason.
