Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (PS4) Review

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection™_20151011150020

“Unlike his theatrical progenitor, who punches indefensible Nazis in the early days of WWII, Nathan Drake ceaselessly murders those in a contemporary time. Between three games, the number rises to over a thousand lives ended in a search for wealth or personal gain. Drake shoots, people die. It’s normal to him. Rational concern is discarded for complacency. Uncharted refuses to provide necessary context. In all of the series’ well-groomed, brain-at-the-door entertainment spectacles, killing exists because it’s what video games do…

… Reality is often too difficult for this medium to confront. Then again, Uncharted’s goofiness may not be the proper discussion space. In three games – four counting the Vita’s Golden AbyssUncharted never addresses Drake’s special ops-esque gun use. He’s American. Apparently it comes natural at birth.”
