Uncharted 2 Dubbed Greatest PlayStation Game Ever

This is bound to create plenty of discussion and arguments. The biggest question is, if you remove nostalgia from the equation, is the selection 100% correct...?

UK gamers recently voted for the best PlayStation games of all time and the results were published in the 50th issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine. The poll was conducted to celebrate the brand name's 15th anniversary and as you can see, Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has claimed the top spot. It was apparently a very close race between this masterpiece and the original Metal Gear Solid but the point is, Uncharted 2 takes the top spot.

  • 1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  • 2. Metal Gear Solid
  • 3. Final Fantasy VII
  • 4. Grand Theft Auto Vice City
  • 5. Metal Gear Solid 4
  • 6. Metal Gear Solid 3
  • 7. Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
  • 8. Shadow Of The Colossus
  • 9. Red Dead Redemption
  • 10. Resident Evil IV

Obviously, we're talking about three full generations here, so it can be tough to pick. Personally, I'm a little surprised that Vice City easily outstripped GTAIII (but I would make the same selection), and I'm also surprised to see RDR and SotC on there. I would've liked to have seen Final Fantasy X, one of the God of Wars, and Twisted Metal: Black, but hey, that's me. Said Ben Wilson, Editor of Official PlayStation Magazine:

"Since it came out in late 2009 we’ve maintained that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the best game not just on PS3 but every console around, so it was little surprise to see our readers vote it the number one PlayStation game of all time. It has everything you could want from an action-adventure, and then some: An engaging story full of cinematic twists, a charismatic and funny lead character, brilliant voice acting, masses of clever gameplay ideas, and a host of strong multiplayer modes. It’s the complete videogame, and much deserving of the top spot."

So, what say you?

wait please , I just cant trust this kind of survey because in general people would like what they remember MOST so most people will include newly released games and this may also explain the total absence of Gran Turismo beside a lot of other game like Crash Bandicoot for example
and please can somebody tell me where is GOW from all that??????????

Sorry people. UC2 is amazing, no doubt. But to me, it's still not the masterpiece that is FFVII. I have yet to play a game that impressed me with its story and gameplay as much as FFVII. UC2 and GoW2 have both come rather close, same with Mass Effect 2. But FFVII is not 3rd. It's first. (Hell, I'd probably have to put it into another league. lol)

I say good for UC2 but it's all subjective... I don't think COD 4 MW deserves to be on that list but clearly many UK "gamers" do.

I rarely ever pay attention to these lists though sometimes I see a game maybe I haven't played and it provokes me to give it a try.

100% agreed. I also am always wondering why these types of surveys aren't opened up to the public and everyone is allowed to give their input. This particular one may have been but earlier last month I believe, Sony sent out a survey to "select" gamers in NA. What's that about?

You still haven't play Uncharted 2? Are you kidding me? But yeah, No SH is a big miss and also Tomb Raider 1 had to be there. I know that the franchise has gone down the gutter but, the first one is got to be the most epic gaming of its time, the levels were gigantic and everything about the game was great for its time. It was back then what Uncharted 2 is to me now... Just saying :)

Bike needs a valve job and a seal replacement, truck blows its head gasket, have to fly to Miami for family reasons, computer takes a nose dive and have to buy hard drive mobo and cpu.

What?! At least one God of War HAS to be there! GoW 1 raised the bar for all games when it came out, Gow 2 was a masterpiece, and GoW 3 has arguably the best graphics of any game EVER, not to mention it has the ultimate EPIC playthrough of any game( I'll admit the story could have been told a little better)

I just can't and probably will never name one game that's the greatest of all time.

I mean what does it take to make it to the list? Sales? Technical achievements? Revenue/Income? Rating? History? Gameplay? Story? Combination of some? It's too much to think about.

I thought the same thing, but as 556pineapple said, racing sims are not as universal appealing as Action and Shooting games.

The day Gran Turismo makes the greatest game of all time list is probably the day Gran Turismo wins the game of the year award. The chances are similar.

I think you have to wait a little bit longer before making that kind of statement. It's hard to really remove nostalgia from the equation. Don't get me wrong, it's an excellent game, you just need to give it time to see where it settles compared to the rest. That's just me though.

Great list! Only one I haven't played on it.

I'm going to go with "Metal Gear Solid" as the best Playstation game ever.

I distinctly remember playing through that game and savouring every bit of playtime with it. As the credits rolled after its completion, I thought to myself, "This was the best game I have ever played."

Second place for me would be "Resident Evil 2", followed by "Resident Evil 1". (in case anyone cares... haha)

No.

A list that probably had a few thousand votes too. Hardly concrete.

And that list is all sortsa wrong...and the mags description of U2 is even more wrong, hence why i disagree!

I never pay attention to these best of lists in any format, really. They're just silly and dramatic.

Also, This generation is more fresh on the minds so you'll see newer games there more....especially as the age group that voted (considering the mags readers) is pretty young.

You have to also remind yourself of less commercial games that many might not of heard of, but are still unbelievable such as Demon's Souls, Exhumed, Dark Chronicle, Alundra etc.

See, too many factors invade such lists. The strongest one being personal opinion.

Off topic, Castlevania demo is GREAT! I dislike GoW type games, but this one got me! Great music, story, theme and acting.

In terms of production and presentation I've never played a better game. While I can't say TPS pop 'n fire is my personal favorite style of play, the quality speaks volumes. The game is better than polished and it embodies top quality elements in every conceivable way.

And to put it another way.
..If aliens from outer space came and abducted me and asked for me to produce humanity's greatest achievement in video game design I would pick Uncharted 2. Then hopefully they'd avoid using any probes on me =p

I hate these lists. They're so damn subjective. I mean, sure, there's usually a couple titles that really do deserve to be there, but some titles I look at and go, "re.... real.... really?"

Just goes to show that personal taste plays a BIG part. My greatest highlight of the PS2 for me was Dragon Quest 8, for example. I also hold in high regard Okami, and Gran Turismo series. PS1 was so incredibly revolutionary that I'm shocked not to see more from it.

Anyways, I think my tastes are fairly different than the average person, so that's why I typically despise these lists.

I would think if it was a reflection of popularity or sales, Uncharted 2 and Shadow of the Colossus would't even be listed. And if it were a reflection of quality, than one would think KZ2 would've made it there before MW1 would've. Not a perfect list, but i'm glad a certain number of games made it.

That last part about describing U2 made me think of the Metal Gear series more. U2 was great but I'm still convince the Metal Gear series as a whole is shear perfection.

FFVII will always be my "one" favorite game. Naughty Dog said they had much better grasp on the system after U1. Square Soft didn't even have a background in CDs going into FFVII.
In the end these list are always subjected to opinions... so lets just go play video games.

I'll take a jab with my own list of favorites for the hell of it.

1.Uncharted2
2.God of War
3.Resident Evil 2
4.God of War II
5.Final Fantasy VII
6.Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
7.Metal Gear Solid 4
8.Silent Hill
9.Shadow of the Colossus
10.Gran Turismo 4

It's damn near impossible to do one of these lists. All the games I just listed and some I did not list could be considered my favorite game of all time. As I did my list I came to the conclusion there is not one top game of all time, but many.
You cannot rank truly epic games!

In some aspects i would agree however MGS4 was the only game that made my jaw drop from start to finish besides FFVII.

Uncharted 2 had its moments but it ended far to quick for my tastes and just wasn't as awe inspiring as the MGS4 and FFVII.

I'm sorry but I totally reject this. I'm not knocking it, UC2 is great, it's a lot of fun but it's no masterpiece. Like the films and tradition it's based off, the same thread that Indiana Jones is, it's just a lot of fun.

There's plenty more of substance available in the long history of playstation.

These lists are mostly good to ignore. But for the most part they got good games in there.

Great to see MGS1 second, that game is just downright perfect.

UC2 is just beautiful. It's everything one can ask for in a v-game.

Demon's Souls should have taken a place somewhere in there. Definitely better than Call of D00ty and Red Dead

Lol! Resided Evil 4 was garbage on the Playstation. I don't think one can count that game.

this top 10 list does not make sense.(no GOW? no ICO? no Chrono? no Demon's Souls? etc) honestly, it is very hard to decide the best one over the rest, therefore, instead of that methodology, i choose to use best or most favorite games, not in any order or priority, which to me, makes more sense.

so my list goes like this:

MGS3,4,2,1
FF8,10,12,4,7,6
Chrono Cross
Chrono Trigger
GOW1,2,3
DMC1,3,4
Castlevania LoS
ICO and SOTC (future The Last Guardian)
Demon's Souls
Heavy Rain
Uncharted2
Vagrant Story
Parasite Eve
Silent Hill 2
RE4
Fatal Frame 1,2,3
RoF
inFamous

not in any particular order as said above,all are my love :D

I see those list as a guide of what I should buy or at least rent. I don't believe on the term "best game ever" since more than 50 games I have played could deserve that title.

Their list looks about right to me. I mean, anything in the top 10 or so is a must play so why argue over which is first? It comes down to personal preference.

'Among Thieves' is awesome, to be sure, but saying it's the greatest PlayStation title EVER? I don't know that I could ever let myself go that far.

All the major 'Metal Gear Solid' titles, 'Final Fantasy VII', 'VIII' & 'X', 'Shadow of the Colossus', just about any 'Gran Turismo', 'Heavy Rain the 'God of War' series, 'Dragon Quest VIII', 'LittleBigPlanet', 'Valkyria Chronicles', 'Vagrant Story', 'Chrono Cross', 'Demon's Souls.'
I'm not saying all of those are definitively better than 'Among Thieves', but those are just the titles that spring to mind when I think about the best PlayStation games. Pretty stiff competition, if you ask me. And I'm just not ready to crown such a recent title better than all the others.

Still, things like this are undoubtedly good for the game, since it still hasn't sold as much as it deserves, despite it's three and-a-half million or so in sales.

5.Onimusha 3
6.God of War 1 and 2
7.Heavy Rain
8.Metal Gear Solid 3 in Jap
9.Infamous
10.Gran Turismo


Ico and Yakuza 1 and 2.The three of the most underrated games by Playstation Fans.

I don't know the Japanese voice actors seem way better in Metal Gear Solid.1st Metal gear solid was also good in english.but 2,3 and 4 david hayter's voice was not good.
Hideo Kojima only said that for the 1st one and the 1st one had very good voices in the Jap version.
Akio Otsuka is perfect for Snake's voice.
All the Japanese voice actors are giving thier voices to Castlevania LOS.But this time Castlevania english version will have great voice actors so will play both and see.
Did u guys see the new story trailer for castlevania.Tell me if their voices are not good.

PS and PS2 had too many great games to say Uncharted 2 is the best ever. It was awesome but i enjoyed a ton of other games as much.

Its easy to pick your favorite game out of a series but not for a certain console. Just way too many games in different genres to enjoy to say its the best playstation game ever.

Uncharted 2 was an awesome game. Just hope we have more awesome games for the PS3 in the future.

Modern Warfare, Red Dead Redemption and Resident Evil 4 are all fantastic games in their own right, but are they really worthy of all time top 10 PlayStation games?

Whare are God of War, Gran Turismo, Heavy Rain and ICO? And while Killzone 2 wouldn't make my list of top 10 of all time, one does feel it was an overall better experience that Modern Warfare, no?

UC2 is definitely a great game, maybe the best on PS3, but not best Playstation game overall. I'm still for FFVII.

I thought it was really weird seeing Red Dead Redemption there. It was on Playstation, but not really what I would consider a "Playstation game" when doing a survey like this.

I'm sure there were a lot of youngin's voting there that never even played a PS1.

This list is a classic format:

A mix of genuine old gems, and new releases which people are enjoying now.

This is not to say that I don't agree with some of the list, but again, it is all just opinion. Seriously, Red Dead? Resi IV? And 3 of the 4 MGS. Nah, not buying it. There have been thousands of amazing games ever made.

I'm glad to see Uncharted 2 get the respect it deserves, because all personal opinions aside it was one of the greatest games and there is no denying it...

I call bunk on this list. PlayStation is not another word for video games, and by doing a best "PlayStation" game list, I think you have to trim the fat by excluding all multiplatform releases. By including multiplat games like Modern Warfare or its sequel, I think you're really taking a dump on the first and third party dev teams that built the game using only the Ps3s architecture. I may have not liked the experience that Killzone 2 gave me, but it's technical achievements outweigh both Infinity Ward and Treyarchs on the Ps3 console. Same with Resident Evil 4, which was a port of the GameCube game. It's dismissive of the teams that brought us Onimusha and Devil May Cry, both of which were PlayStation exclusives for the most part during the last generation. I play a lot of games, and a lot of those games are multiplatforum, but I've never considered them the best of the best of PlayStation games.

I also think focusing on this generation of games is unfair to the history of the PlayStation brand, ultimatley making a "best PlayStation EVAR" list an impossibility.

In my opinion, you'd have to break it into three generations of gaming and a side section for the PSP, and then break it down into genres, all the while trying to remain as objective as possible and leave opinions out of it as much as one can.

That's how I would've done it, anyway.

No, not at all. Everyone has opinions and if your opinion is that Resident Evil 4 is a better game on the PlayStation 2 than any of the games in the Onimusha franchise, who am I really to argue that point?

What I'm saying is that if I were making a list called "The Best PlayStation Games" I would try to push my opinion away, tell it to shut up, and judge the games on their own merits. I would also remove any and all multiplatform games and ports from other consoles to focus on the games created just for the PlayStation consoles, as those tend to be the sort of games that make the console shine.

If I made a list based solely on my opinions, I'm sure it would get a lot of laughs as Jaws Unleashed would be on the list somewhere. the game was complete shambles, sure; glitchy as hell, yes; craptacular, most certainly. But the fun I had swimming around as a ginormous great white shark eating whaterver I wanted has been permanently burned into my memory banks. It was so much fun, but it wasn't a good game, let alone one of the best.

does that make sense?

I don't like this survey. Uncharted 2 does have the best graphics and game play ever, but you just can't beat the classics. RDR should not be on there, don't get me wrong I loved it but it's not one of the PS's best. COD4:MW was a very fun game, I put so many hours in to it, but it is not in the top 10. One or two of the Gran Turismo's should be up there. The Crash bandicoots and Twisted Metal as well. And GOW should differently be in the top 5 and all MGS belong, they are amazing(Rising is dumb).
GT,crash,TM,MGS,GOW,spyro,tumb raider and FF are on my list

Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, 3, 4
Final Fantasy
Uncharted 2
God of war 1
Fahrenheit
Heavy Rain
Deus EX
etc.

Other mentions that won my heart with game play and somewhat originality are:

Crash Bandicoot 1,2,3 and CTR
LittleBigPlanet
Odd world Abe's Odyssey ;D
Lego Star Wars 1 and complete saga

There are many more games, I love for it's gameplay, stories etc. :D

But at the end of the day, everyone's different :)

depends what your judging them by.
if your judging by technological masterpiece and epic action sequences, than definitely uncharted 2, even over GOW3.
but if your judging by how much fun said games are to play U2 falls way off the mark!
the original crash bandicoot was, and always will be my favorite game of all time!
nothing can change that!
R&C a close second, than syphon filter 3rd.

GT is great, had allot of good times with it, especially when me and my father spent all weekend together trying to get our A license.
great times!
but not allot of people are into racing sims, too finicky and can get really frustrating at times.
allot like ninja gaiden, allot of people hate that series because its so hard.
me i love it because its so technical, you have to really time everything not just go masher on the buttons AKA bayonetta, GOW or many other action games.
