Yasmin has been playing “Uncharted Collection”
Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never heard of the Uncharted series at all. The name Nathan Drake would come up every now and then, but I never knew where it originated from. After the constant urging from my boyfriend, I decided to pick up the remastered collection to see what was the commotion about. After a week and a half, I have already gotten through the first two games and am currently in the middle of the third. That’s how addicted I became to the series.
In 2013, I fell in love with the rebooted Tomb Raider and its adventurous story. The tropical settings, compelling plot, and (most importantly) Lara Croft had me finishing the game in a week. Uncharted grabbed me in the same way and had me falling in love with Nathan Drake. Nathan isn’t just some cardboard cutout action hero; he’s human with real emotions and we see him goof off and become scared. It actually makes him relatable and has us care about his well-being.
While the first game was predictably formulaic, the second and third installments had engrossing levels and puzzles. You engaged in epic train shootouts, fought against pirates, and discovered Shangri-la. With the last game in my view, I now know why this game was so beloved by everyone. The beautiful settings coupled with this interesting protagonist left me wanting more adventures. It’s the Indiana Jones video game I always wanted. – Yasmin Kleinbart
