Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
It’s becoming apparent that Naughty Dog doesn’t know how to make anything other than Game of the Year contenders. Uncharted 4 is the studio’s latest masterpiece, and it also happens to be the conclusion to one of the PlayStation’s biggest franchises to date. While there’s always the worry of missing the mark, especially story-wise, Naughty Dog managed to provide an experience that perfectly encapsulated the journey Nathan Drake’s life has taken him on.
Players were taken down memory lane as Nate reminisced over old glories and faced new threats. Faced with the life he’s built and the life he once led, there’s an extra weight to all of the adventuring this time around. That adventuring, mind you, happens to be the most fun iteration yet. Chapters are more open, providing not only further avenues of exploration, but also different ways of completing objectives too. Also, this is easily one of the most beautiful games of the current generation of consoles. Naughty Dog outdid themselves, and we can only wait to see what they have under their sleeves next.
