If You Don't Like Uncharted, You Need Help

Over the years, I've learned that when it comes to entertainment, there's just no such thing as a universally appealing product. No matter how good it is, you'll find someone somewhere that just doesn't like it.

And of course, that's a testament to the subjectivity involved in all entertainment. But every once in a great while, a video game - or game franchise - comes along that makes me say, "if you don't like it, there's something wrong with you." Included on that list are classics like Super Mario Bros., Tetris, and Pac-Man.

Brief tangent- the more complicated games get, the more chance they contain something that may not interest someone. When they were simpler, there was one concept...if it was fun, it was fun.

Anyway, getting back to the subject at hand. If there's one title this generation that is just too damn good to be ignored, and too damn good to make someone go, "meh, don't like it," it's Uncharted. I keep thinking Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception could be the greatest game of the past four or five years, and in all honesty, who wouldn't like it? Seriously. It has action, adventure, romance, humor, thrills, and suspense. And you can bet that Naughty Dog will have the technical elements nailed down tight.

So just for fun, in the most lighthearted manner possible, I say you're a little tapped in the head if you don't like the game. We all have personal preferences and you may prefer other titles more, but everyone should be able to appreciate Uncharted 3, and everyone should be able to find at least some entertainment in this awesome package. But while we're on the subject, what games do you think most everyone would love? The ones that border on "universally awesome?"

Uncharted is pure, unadulterated fun wrapped in one of the best stories in videogame history mixed in with some of the most talented voice actor around. This delicious cake is then topped of by some of the best graphics this side of the PC.

If you do not enjoy it I do believe there are help centers for people like you.

I lent Uncharted 2 to a mate... He played it for two hours, said it was like Splinter Cell and that he didn't like it. I sadfaced. Damned CoD-ites. But then, he does need help. I'm saying that right now :)

Uncharted is just like an action movie , transplanted into a game. The new Indy, if you will, and what's not to like in that?

As for universally awesome, I'd throw inFamous in there. Who wouldn't find that fun? That's about it really.

Just like Splinter Cell...?

Well, maybe he was referring to that craptastic mess that was Conviction. That'd be more forgivable because most of the stealth was gone and it was in third-person. The similarities end there of course.

...yes, he still needs lots of help.

I have almost the exact same story as you. I loaned my copy of Uncharted to my friend because he didn't have any games to play. He gave it back to me the very next day. He said he didn't like the controls and the third person layout.

He said it would have been better in first person with COD controls. I threw out a few expletives and told him he lost his mind. Oh well.

Ben I do agree that Uncharted is an awesome series and that to not like it is a longshot, but to say "anyone" who doesn't like it is touched? I think that's a bit of a stretch. Some people just enjoy the simplicity of a platformer or the challenge of a puzzler and yes Uncharted HAS those elements, but it's not JUST those elements. Now if you were to replace "anybody" with "hardcore gamers" then I could agree with you. If you replaced "the game" with "the story" or "the technical standpoint" then yeah I could also agree with you. But just the case of "everyone" or "anybody" makes me have to disagree. And trust me, I do hate disagreeing with you because a lot of your points are very valid.

Technically speaking, there's likely to be no one-size fits all game, even Uncharted (which is a most excellent series in my eyes) - and if one were being serious, then you could suggest that saying if peeps didn't like something they would be crazy is trying to force the world in our image (even if just talking about gamers - I could imagine hardcore Sims fans might not be into Uncharted, as some hardcore strategy fans might find it not there thing as well), but Ben made it pretty clear he was just saying it as a lighthearted bit of fun :). Those stories of action gamers not liking it are just plain disturbing - goes to show how narrow people can be in what they like/dislike!

For me, I'd find it pretty strange for a console gamer to not like Uncharted, but then when the first Uncharted came out it only got average reviews (on average - although strangely enough everyone including most of the original reviewers thought it was a best-in-industry game by the release of the second - which just goes to show that it takes time to change people's minds, and that change is slow ;)).

As much as I know I'm gonna get thumbs down for this, I do see Halo & Gears as "universally appealing" to most people. As far as PS exclusives, I'm drawing a blank (save 4 Uncharted obviously). Ben, I know u won't give me a hard time about Gears at least :) God of War 3 seems close unless you have a weak stomach. Metal Gear would lose out due to peoples short attention spans. Never seen anybody shy away from Tekken, but that's Multi-plat now. Guess you could throw Arkham Asylum up there as appealing in some way to all. I mean, who hates Batman?

Nah, see I love the look of Gears, and it deserves props for helping out with the pop 'n fire genre of action game, but it controls like a thick large turd sliding down a slope. It does. It's not being unfair. It's slow and lumbering. And only Bethseda can get away with locking the cam to the player's back. I wan't my action games ACTION-Y and fast!

Halo is closer than Gears in terms of universal appeal, IMO. Just because it's a straight sci-fi setting and a FPS.

I do prefer Gears but that's me. :)

Universally appealing to most people?! They're both very much meathead shooters - and games that I'd personally enjoy, but I know a tonne of gamers who reckon they're pretty average (including many who had a 360 before a PS3). But don't forget that gaming includes racers, puzzlers, strategy (and real strategy, not just top-down action games like Starcraft ;)), RPG (particularly around here :)), flight, platformers and so on. Gears and Halo are pretty limited in what they do, in the scheme of things, no matter how well they do it.

I must admit, I never liked Tetris.

I think the folks who don't enjoy Uncharted have patience problems. They can't imagine doing a puzzle or doing platforming between the action sequences and shootouts. For them it has to be shootouts 100% of the time and I worry about gamers that can only game that way because they are missing out on some of the best entertainment ever made.

The only thing I need to debate is whether I smash Uncharted 3 into my schedule when it releases or just wait for Xmas.

I think the inFamous series should appeal to all as well. You don't need to love superheros or superpowers, the plots are really good and the gameplay is universally addictive.

Edit: And the LBP series. I can't stand any game that looks to be directed at kids but if LBP doesn't melt your heart and show you a fun time then you are the Tin Man.

I think i might book myself in to see a doctor then, as i am clearly tapped ;) Sh!t joke aside, i love the Uncharted games & will be grabbing Drakes Deception come release day.

I agree with this article in a way as i feel the same way when it comes to fighting games. For example, after playing VF5 Final Showdown last year i thought to myself "What possible reason would there be for a fighting game purist not to appreciate in Final Showdown? It has great visuals, sound, balance, indepth mechanics & a plethora of replay value & custumisation options" & when i do hear people say that they don't like it i question why because i truly feel that there is no reason not to like this game if you call yourself a fighting fan other than perhaps it requires a steep learning curve. So yeah i feel the same way but in a different genre.

Overall, a good read. Not many sites have the hairy swingers to write an article like this. None that i know of anyway.

I know some dudes who don't like VF because it's too technical, too complicated etc. I couldn't call them purists but those who skewed more towards dramatics. The MvsC lot.
VF is awesome because it's incredibly detailed, refined and carefully tuned in balance. Though, the VF series had always struggled with visual flair and appealing attitude. The game has horrible one liners and arguably the blandest character designs. I like the 80's guitar riffs and stuff personally but I'm sure there's many who don't. Anyway, at the end of the day its about competitive depth and mad skillz. Nothing in gaming has ever been more rewarding to me. It's one thing to think your good against AI in any game, but it's an entire different world when competing against human logic. Endlessly entertaining, and the only real way to gain understanding of how good you actually are.

Saturday, August 27, 2011 @ 8:41:43 AM

@Temjin,

Alot of the criticisms i hear are about the character designs being too bland as you said. But to me, in Final Showdown in particular, that is a moot point now with the sheer amount of customisation you can do with each character. Just have a few looks at some tournament vids & you will see Sarah looking Geisha, Aoi looking like The Grudge or Ju-On & Kage looking like Ryu Hayabusa. You can basically transform a character with the use of skin colour, hairstyle etc. So anyone who doesn't like the default designs can alter their characters at their leisure. So personally i don't find this a real issue.

Also, during the console announcement interview they mentioned even more customisation items for DLC. So character appearance shouldn't be a problem. Considering SEGA are always tinkering with this game releasing versions A,B,C etc it is surely only going to continue to improve each upgrade.

My only real complaint with the console release as a whole is that there will be no spectator mode but if fans beg & grovel enough they may include it in before release. So i am hopeful.

I agree with you though that really, it's all about the gameplay & to me nothing is more fun than learning with a character & taking your skills online against human competition instead of unforgiving AI. But mate, some of those Korean players are ruthless!!! You've got to be on your game.

I look forward to playing you.

I think gaming has become so broad and in many ways dare I say tainted by mainstream marketing and big studio mentalities right now that the idea of universally appealing titles just doesn't exist like older classic games.

Uncharted is a brilliant experience of this generation. In the end though it still has your basic shooting mechanics at it's heart, many many people just don't relate to that, at all.

Obviously, it isn't possible to write anything without someone reading into it that was never there. Even with clear disclaimers, which I shouldn't even need.

Maybe I'll just stop writing anything even remotely interesting and just start churning out the normal fluff everyone else does. The PSXE crowd is taking things waaaaay too seriously.

I think I had a valid point in my comment Ben, and really what I'm seeing is people voicing their opinions against yours; something that I think this community is proud to be able to do because in most other places that just spits out fluff, you can't do that without being attacked.
I'm gunna use books as an example here. I personally don't like to read, and I know you do, so imagine if you will writing an article stating that anyone who doesn't enjoy the best book ever written is a bit touched in the head. As someone who doesn't enjoy reading, I think I would be a bit offended by that. I'm sure I could enjoy the story of it and the writing style, but being told I need help because I don't like the book would more than likely offend me.
All I'm trying to do is let you know that articles like this will offend some people and just because some people disagree, that's not a reason to think you need to start putting out crap. As I said before, I hate disagreeing with you and I respect you and your writing to the ends of the Earth, but there are some things that me and other members here just have to speak up against.

People obviously don't read enough. They can't understand the context in anything. You said above I'm "over-generalizing," as if you're taking what I wrote literally. Yes, I believe you're mentally retarded if you don't like Uncharted. ...really?

Nobody who actually reads frequently would misconstrue this article as anything but lighthearted. They also wouldn't take the headline literally; that'd be impossible.

Ben,
You are correct on all accounts. I think something gets lost in the translation when reading blogs or website postings. That is of course, unless you do read books frequently. Then you can pick up context and understand what the author or originator of an article is trying to convey.

With that said, I just think some people like to argue and disagree no matter what you say or write about. As for anyone that was offended by Ben's article....really?....offended?.....by what exactly?

The way we read things is heavily affected by the way we read other things. If any part of you wants to be upset by something the chances are you will be. I can't say that if I was in a particular frame of mind I might not feel the need to push back against articles that seem to laud one franchise over all. The key is to not read into what is actually there I think.

I think we're going to make a new rule about Comments, just to avoid any future problems. This shouldn't have to be said but obviously, I think it does.

From now on, the only Comments that will be permitted will pertain to the article in question. The subject at hand, and that's it. No more regarding WHY it was posted, and how it supposedly effects PSXE. If you have a problem with the content of the site, just don't post.

You can be as negative or as positive as you want, provided the subject is actually the article, and not ME or my decision to post it. I love you guys, but that just shouldn't be in the Comments.

@Ben: Uh oh... Oh no, please reconsider. That idea spells trouble. It will only unleash a tirade of accusations about censorship, your inability to handle criticism, and so forth. It's not a good idea at all, qute the contrary. As new readers arrive, they will all be surprised by such a practise - it's close to unheard of on the net.

Instead, take a step back and don't get so involved in the comments field, or so easily offended/provoked. As long as people express themselves reasonably civilized (like FM23 here) let us share opinions also about you and this site. It's part of a healthy, living community.

Ben, with all due respect but it seems it's you who don't understand me here. I talk about the consequences, not the intentions. Let me use some examples to illustrate:

Just imagine the reactions if, say, IGN started deleting all comments that criticized IGN and/or the writer (and not the topic of the article). Just imagine. What would you yourself have thought about such a policy, had this been just a year ago...!

Also, will you then delete just off topic critizism, or off topic flattering too? Like, "this was an AWESOME idea for an article!" - would that be accepted, but "this was a ROTTEN idea" would get deleted? If so, how do you think *that* would have been perceived amongst the readers? And if the compliment would have stayed: Why? That's just as off topic! One thing is certain: Both types of comments will be posted!

There are also other off topic posts that has nothing to do with the article, like general community chit-chat. Like Highlander and me in one of our longer discussions that tend to stray well off topic at times. Is that due for deletion too, now? Where is the line drawn?

I'll leave it at that, I wont keep nagging about this, I just felt I had to warn you. This has all the hallmarks of a Bad Idea.

frankly Uncharted: DF still is my favourite.
So far both have been awesome in every way, as will most likely U3 be, what with fantasticly engrossing stories and brilliant gameplay, but i think it's because a uncharted df was suprisingly good.
I opened the game with no expectations and was like OMG that was fudging brilliant! (fudge... Mmm)
But that caused so much anticipation that U2 couldnt ever suprise me at how good it was. (i set the bar quite high. It reached it tho, wonderfully!)
I was suprised U:DF was fantastic, whereas i expected U2 to be fantastic. Thus, U:DF my fave

Don't stroke the game to hard its not even out yet. It should be as good as uncharted 2 but its never good to praise a game that no ones even played yet. I think if anyone gave at least two hours to it Shadow of the colossis (not sure how to spell collosis, must be drunk again) is undeniably incredible.

@ Ben.

Uncharted is good!

I was watching Knight and Day after playing Uncharted 2 and a few minutes into the movie I said thats Nathan Drake in real life AKA Tom Cruise and then I said thats Elena? AKA Cameron Diaz.

And watching Shrek when I hear the voice of the Princess I think thats Elenas voice the real life version Cameron Diaz.

The same thing when I watched Mission Impossible and I see the actor but my mind says Nathan Drake then I have to stop for a second and say no, no its Tom Cruise.

I guess if it talks like Nathan Drake and does crazy stunts like Nathan Drake then thats the first thing that comes to mind instead of saying thats Tom Cruise??

As an experiment watch the movie Knight and Day and then go play Uncharted and tell me your impression??

Hey Ben.
Just wondering if you're in the path of the Hurricane that's coming up the Eastern shoreline too?

We're under a mandatory Evac here in Southern New Jersey, but I'm waiting till early morn to take off out the area before the rain starts up.

They're talking about a 10 foot wave surge between Saturday & Sunday, on top of a rain soaked ground already from torrential downpours causing flash floods that we had over the last two weeks already, plus be a "first" moon that will cause higher high tides too, so I'll be stuck for at least a couple days at some school that they've set up as a emergency Evac center, a way's up inland from our shoreline.

I just hope we have a apartment complex to come back to later, & that our roofs are still intact, or that it hasn't flooded out & I don't lose all my gaming consoles, among everything else.
If all goes well, I'll be back here sometime next week, but if I'm not, that means everything's gone.

Anyways, wish all of us all along the Atlantic seaboard areas good luck, everyone!

Reading over the comments here, I can't help but laugh. People seem to be taking offense to the article when there is none to be found. Ben isn't saying that you absolutely must love it, only that it's only logical that it's near impossible not to find SOMETHING to like in the series. The whole "touched in the the head/need help" phrases are just to poke fun and emphasise the point that he's trying to make, if indeed there is a real point.

This is just a 'for fun' article, it isn't meant to be taken seriously. Sure, feel free to voice your opinion, but don't go calling Ben out when it simply isn't warranted. Hmmk?

Uncharted is the James Bond or Indiana Jones of the gaming industry. Expensive productions, impressive visuals, good actors, well directed.
... But utterly predictable, ultra-traditional, family friendly entertainment clearly tailor-made for the masses. Only thing missing is a cute pet that makes everyone go "awwww" at regular intervals.

There's nothing wrong in not liking that. Some would even say its more wrong in uncritically hailing it as the pinnacle of modern gaming.

There /really/ is no universally appealing product. And we should be happy it isn't. Cause if there were, we'd need some serious help.

Obviously no product will appeal to everyone, but it's interesting to theorize about such a product.

If anything, we should be happy it doesn't exist because anything with overly massive appeal causes ripples that damage other franchises by watering them down to fit that mold.

Let's theorize then :)
What would it take to make a game that *everyone* would love? What are the requirements?

Well, for me I *have* to be given the illusion that I am my own master, even if it is just an illusion (as most often is the case, both in games and real life). To me, freedom of choice is the essence of what gaming is all about.

Others want to be served a story, and value the narrative more than the freedom. Some seek intense confrontation, others enjoy strategy or evasion. Some want to run, others want to crawl. Some want to command, others want to be commanded.

Can a single game tackle all these challenges?
Many say it is impossible but I am optimistic. I am able to imagine such a game, where the world is so detailed and intense that the narrative is all over the place and can be told without forcing the player down one path. It just require way more computing power than the hardware can deliver today. But if there's one thing that is for certain, it's that the future holds hardware that are many times more powerful than today.

Can't wait to see what that future will bring. Maybe The Universally Awesome Game awaits in the horizon!

I love Uncharted but can definately see some areas of improvement. Istanbul stealth - poor. Running from zombies and big blue things - tiresome. Some of the climbing sections dragged as well.

Apart from that, everything was fantastic. The collapsing hotel scene is one of my favourite all time video gaming moments "of all time!".

Something for everyone! Just hope there isn't a zombie around the next corner...

Y'know we can put this theory to the test.. pretty sure ____________ didn't like uncharted. Just kidding XD

Completley agree. I sat my dad down to play uncharted and he LOVED it. Now bearing in mind he is 56, he is a carpenter who's traveled the world all hes life, he isn't someone whos had the time and/or patience for games. He doesn't strike me as the sort of person that could appreciate a game like uncharted. But I was wrong..he literally watched me play uncharted 2 all the way through, and when I was done he wanted me to let him play Uncharted 1. He sucked horribly and it took him like a month to complete but he wanted to get straight on with Uncharted 2 so I can tell he enjoyed it. He was even saying things like 'The expressions in the cutscenes are so real...its like a film!' or 'Must've took them ages to build this game.' So someone who isnt into games (albeit he does play FPS from time to time..usually wolfenstein from like, 2001 lol), they can see how awesome Uncharted is..

how is it a ridiculous complaint?
if your dying a gazillion times because your sprinting away from a grenade or enemy fire and press circle to roll and instead of rolling you take cover.
just common sense, its like having 2 guns looking exactly identical, only one a real gun and one a lighter.
and putting them exactly next to each other.
only a matter of time till you grab what you think is the lighter and end up shooting yourself in the face!

That isnt actually a fault with the game; rather the person playing. It depends how accurate you are with rolling. If your just rolling in any direction, you can only expect to cling to a wall. Pressing circle isn't supposed to be just a 'get of jail free' kinda thing, jus sayin. :)

Uncharted excells on all levels, story, characters, gameplay, score... everything. There is no reason to dislike the game. The problem I have with a lot of 3rd person over the shoulder shooters are the sluggish characters. In Uncharted Drake moves like silk, the animation and sense of motion is so smooth its just so good to play.

I must agree with a few of the comments in here. Uncharted keeps itself so thoroughly in the "safe" zone, trying as hard as it can to appeal to everyone, without taking any unusual risks, that this alone might put some people off. After my first playthrough of Uncharted 1, I was a bit "meh" on it, for just this reason. Other than a couple impressive sequences, there wasn't anything in particular that jumped out at me and said, "This game is special and innovative in a way I haven't seen before." This is especially true with the story; it's so outrageously cliché that, at points, I was laughing scenes for being so predictable and by-the-book.

What finally made me fall in love with it was when I pushed the difficulty up, and I started to realize how well the environments and levels were designed so that it always catered to the difficulty you were on and allowed the player's skill to shine, instead of being cheap or having just one way to win, like most other games are on their upper difficulties. I fell in love with the gameplay. The graphics, story, characters and everything else are very well done, but at the same time, often rather vanilla.

If I hadn't stuck with Uncharted for a repeat playthrough, I'd probably still be in the camp that thinks it's not so amazingly great. Like the beginning of this article said, there's no universally appealing product. They could improve the bits I just mentioned, but then they would likely lose a different segment of the fanbase because the story would be /too smart/ (this happens, often). I don't fault anyone for not caring for Uncharted, as long as they gave it a chance. Like I said in another Uncharted piece, I don't like Zelda, but I gave it a chance--several, actually. People say there's something wrong with me for that, because, "How can you not like Zelda?"

I wasn't sure if I would like Uncharted since it seemed average looking when the first one came out. I tried the 2nd one when the demo came out as multiplayer and I had a blast with how the characters moved along with the third-person view and camera which got me to play and enjoy both games now.

Uncharted will b considered one of the best sagas EVER. does it matter what a handful of people say. The ayes have it and the reviews tell all. It will be among the most elite. U don't like it? Fine. It's a little wierd considering the facts and statistics. But whatever. To eaches own.

The argument about the ammount of ps3s sold ever vs the amount of consoles sold because of uncharted couldn't b more irrelevant. Uncharted 2 was uncovered in 08 and ps3 was released long before that. Now if u had a statistic about the consoles in which UC2 has been played on or a survey based off of console sales that occured the year of UC2, then we can talk

you obviously have never read what i write because i have said countless times if ive learned anything this gen its that sales do not indicate quality!
i was using the how much did it sell remark to refute the rediculous claim that if you dont like uncharted you need help.
allot of people found it as entertaining as watching grass grow!

I dont think its tongue in cheek if you say uncharted is the best and everyone should recognize,add a joke about it and finish with a 'seriously, uncharted is great'.

I also think the whole filtering of comments is kinda messed up, im just saying.

I definitely like Uncharted, but I think Yoshi's Island takes the cake. Man, there was something about those rotating levels...

I agree. It's tough cus I'm a huge God of War fan also, but Drake and treasure, those two things are very fascinating! Drakes character is so well written, while the alternate "lost" treasure stories that fascinate me because of the history, makes it fun yet very intriguing!

Although i agree with Ben about Uncharted being one the greatest franchises in gaming so far (I've got platinum trophy for the 2 first titles) i could not blame someone if they dont like it all...and it is fine with me.

Every person who owns a PS3 should have a PS3. If you haven't played it yet, there is still time and Uncharted 2 continues to have a big online community.

I love Uncharted, but you can bet CoD junkies and Xbox fanboys will just say "It's tomb raider"

Nice assumption.

Anything else you'd like to pull from your arse?

Ah, give the guy a break. In his defense, the game was called 'Dude-raider' at one point. I don't see the resemblance (DRAKE DOESN'T HAVE MAN-BOOBS!!?), but there ya go.
