    The difficulty in horizon ramps like crazy in the DLC area

    I donít see how uncharted 2 is significantly better than the original. I will say the graphics look nicer, and they added a rudimentary stealth mechanic, which is almost never as useful as it sounds because eventually the game demands you get spotted to trigger a set piece anyway.

    But the gun play, climbing, story, puzzle solving feels identical to the first one. Iíd always heard people raving about #2 and claiming 1 is the worst and borderline skippable. I donít really see that great a disparity. I think they were both pretty good games. I still think i prefer infamous as a series.

    its also probably unfair playing UC2 directly after god of war, to be fair
    after having finished horizon, i started uncharted 3. basically same thoughts as above. i dont see the uncharted series as a "great" one so far, imho. but from what i've seen i think i'd enjoy uncharted 4 more than the others, when i eventually get there. i dont think 3 or 2 feel any different than uncharted 1. the shooting feels the same. stealth is marginally better in 2 and 3. the climbing isn't all that great tbh ... find a yellow pipe or a dark red brick. the climbing is barely any different than god of war, which threw it in there as an afterthought ... its a generic 3rd person cover shooter which isn't all that to write about.

    still a decently fun game to play... but dont understand the hype of uncharted 1-3 defining the ps3 generation or anything like that.

    It's because you started playing them 10 years after the first came out and you're playing a far superior version in the remake. There is massive improvements from Uncharted 1 to 2 from the original. It's quite backwards actually. Not much difference from 2 to 3.

    By that point, Naughty Dog reached their peak with their engine and finally knew how to work the PS3 hardware which was notoriously bad to work with.

    Back when Uncharted came out it just felt freshed and new. The climbing felt new and smooth believe it or not. I just dont think it's fair to compare Uncharted 1-3 to any current gen games. They kind of owe Uncharted a lot to be honest.

    Every game post Uncharted started copying it's game mechanic because it was just that good.

    dont see how uncharted climbing/platforming is any better than assassins creed 2, on the same system.

    while the game structures aren't identical... i think infamous and infamous 2 are just better.

    not trying to on uncharted, i still think the games have been quite fun. the presentation aspects of the game are pretty good. stories overall are a bit bland, but the characters are solidly written, voice acting is good, the set pieces are fun. but the actual gameplay is just kinda repe ive between very basic "platforming" ie find a yellow pipe and nothing special cover shooting, with a minimal stealth function. even TLOU, which is narrative heavy, imo blows them out of the water with respect to gameplay

    still playing Days Gone...after about 20 hours in there are definitely some things that should be tweaked but overall i am thoroughly enjoying it....it's not the witcher 3 or anything but a solid 7.5-8/10 imo

    Yeah, but it will run much better on the PC. Seems to be a good port.

    Oh yeah, of course. One of my most played games on emulation on my Switch. Great game but the arcade original of Shinobi will always be my #1 in the series.

    Really loving Revenge. If you play it like a traditional action platformer, you'll get stomped. Have to play it tactically and deliberately (seems the two Genesis sequels were more action oriented). I could call it a proto-stealth game. Awesome level design, too. I'm ing out using a game genie to level and boss practice (beat the game with the good ending this way already) and then go for a clean run.

    I'll have to get Shinobi Arcade on MAME. Have the Master System version, but that's obviously a gimped version.

    Ah I remember having the DOS version of Shinobi in the 80s to play at home. Good game but none of that great music or fast action like the arcade. I imagine the Master System version is similar since the NES version is just like the DOS one. It's a typical action arcade sidescroller from the 80s, including being really cheap at the third boss where you have to die a couple of times to get them to slow down enough to be able to kill them all spamming jump and shoot. At least I have to doing it on a controller. On an actual arcade deck I could often get them on the first time though; much easier to spam those buttons at waist height while standing.

    Revenge of Shinobi is one of my favs.. that soundtrack is legendary too. What other game has Rambo, Godzilla, Batman, and Spider Man as enemies?

    Those bosses were a laugh, indeed. Game really is a masterclass in level design. I appreciate how it allows you a variety of ways to tactically problem solve through levels rather than just being a test of twitch and platforming skills, like in so many other action platformers (i.e. Ninja Gaiden, Contra, etc). Not that there's anything wrong with the latter design, but Revenge was a bit of an innovator in that regard. And yeah, soundtrack is top tier.

    I haven't played Uncharted, and always wondered how it compares to TLOU. What about in terms of story quality, writing, characters?

    Character models look similar. Otherwise TLOU is more gritty and less cartoony. You don’t need 10 rounds to drop normal enemies. Story is far more mature. They feel sufficiently different.

    Thanks--if the quality is sufficiently up to Naughty Dog standards, I should probably check them out.

    Uc4 and Lost Legacy are the only ones that have a last of us-ish feel.
