How Would Nathan Drake Have Fared Against Master Chief?

At one point earlier this year, it looked like Sony's biggest exclusive would square off against Microsoft's for a huge holiday showdown: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End vs. Halo 5 Guardians.

But we aren't getting the pleasure, now are we?

No, with Naughty Dog's highly anticipated title delayed until 2016, Master Chief can run mostly unopposed this year. Sure, he has to contend with the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars: Battlefront but both of those are on Xbox One; there's no fun face-off across platforms. Of course, had this happened, you know the fanboy wars would've kicked up a lot of dust, as the Uncharted 4 vs. Halo 5 debates would be plastered all over the Internet.

Hypothetically speaking, how do you think Nathan Drake would've fared when up against the Master Chief? If we're going strictly by review scores, Uncharted might've had the advantage, as Halo 5 currently holds a Metascore of 85. Even the first Drake adventure scored better than that, and Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 were up in the 90s. Even so, would there be any chance that Uncharted 4 could actually outsell Halo 5? Probably not.

What do you think?

as much as a sony fan as i am, Uncharted has always portrayed drake as human and has shown him numerous times pretty close to death, while Halo on the other hand... Master chief appears near invincible.

Uncharted 4 is likely going to be the better game, and by a wide margin, which is all that really matters.

That said, once it's out, Sony should have the balls and honor to do what MS can't seem to - let a franchise go out on a high note. We don't need an Uncharted 5, 6 and 7 with a different lead that retreads the same ground. Just let Naughty Dog do something different.

So far Halo 5 is the lowest scoring mainline Halo in the series.

Halo 1-3 were fantastic, but they have lost their way these days.

Uncharted 4 is thankfully the last in the series so hopefully it ends with a bang. No need to drag the series further and further when you can end it on a high and work on something fresh.

Regarding how the two would fare, you would have to give Halo the edge in sales due to it's superior online multiplayer and less focus on the single player campaign which is what Uncharted excels at.

Well every console God of War before Ascension had a 90+ rating. UC4 isn't guaranteed a high rating, but I believe ND can pull it off.

Ratings shouldn't matter if we're talking about sales of course. For the better rated game, I'd easily bet on UC. But yeah, in terms of sales, I don't think any sony exclusive has any chance of outselling halo 5 except maybe GT7.

Since there seem to be a lot more PS4s out there than X1s, I would think UC4 would've had a great chance of outselling Halo 5 were they to have gone head-to-head.

Uncharted can easily get high ratings, but Halo can easily get high sales.
Halo 3 sold more than 10 million copies if I'm not mistaken, a number Uncharted has yet to reach and probably never will.

Halo can easily crush Uncharted in sales but at the end of the year, Naughty Dog will have more awards in their office than 343's.

I personally believe Halo 5 could be the worse selling of the franchise while Uncharted 4 could be the best selling of that franchise.

Halo 5 will almost certainly be the worst selling Halo game, but when you're talking about a franchise that continually broke sales records, that's not really a negative.

Halo already hit his peak years ago, I doubt they would even be able to beat Uncharted 4 on sales with more PS4 being out there.

I personally believe Halo lost its magic when it lost Bungie.

The circumstances are odd, because in terms of sales, I think UC4 has the potential to do just as well and possibly even outsell Halo 5 this time around, but I'm basing that purely on the basis that PS4 is in 3 times as many hands as Xbox One.

If the two consoles were more equal in terms of sales, Halo 5 would take the cake without even blinking.

Halo is a hot property, the only game that even remotely comes near to it in PS' arsenal is Gran Turismo.

But who knows, we'll have to see.

I never considered they may be competing against one another... since... you know... they aren't even on the same consoles.

It was delayed simply because there are way too many good games coming out for PS4 this holiday season. They did not want to compete and lose sells.

Im betting this game comes out during the dry part of the gaming season next year.

Halo sells mostly because of multiplayer. And Halo 5 does not disappoint in that department. Don't think this one would be as close as people think.

Halo has never been a one trick pony. It sells just as much, if not more, for the co-op campaign. There's never been an FPS franchise with co-op as consistently good as Halo*.

*Speaking solely about the Bungie-era Halo games. No idea if Halo 4's co-op sucks or not, because I'm not playing that shit.
