Ranking the Uncharted series, a look back at one of the best franchises in gaming
The real treasure was in the games all along
#4 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
To be the first in any series is no easy task. You have to convince people that your game is worth their time, and on top of that, it has to play well. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was just that. It had a compelling story, it had action, and most importantly it had legit characters. Characters that went off to be some of the most well-recognized faces in the gaming community.
Ask anyone remotely into gaming who Nathan Drake, Sully, and Elena are and 9/10 times they'll know who you're talking about. That's where Naughty Dog succeeded the most in Drake's Fortune -- its characters.
This game was a foundation for our soon beloved characters. Even till this day we don't know the entire backstory of Nathan Drake and that is where Naughty Dog got it right. The gameplay was fun, the graphics were amazing for its time, but seeing Nathan for the first time and the story that he was going to embark on was something truly special.
