We share the absolute best storylines in games. . . ever.
With the Uncharted series, Naughty Dog intentionally set out to create a game that felt like a Hollywood movie. They succeeded in this aim with every Uncharted game. In the Uncharted stories, Nathan Drake sets off around the world looking for some piece of treasure or other which he invariably finds. Simple enough sounding story, right?
What makes Uncharted one of the best stories in games–and also makes Nathan Drake one of the best characters in games, is the voice acting.
Voice acting can often be pretty dodgy in gaming, but not so with Uncharted and Nathan Drake. Played by Nolan North, Nathan Drake’s character finds a great deal of depth and believably thanks to excellent acting. Because of Nolan North’s work, the gamer believes in Nathan Drake, and when you believe in a game’s lead character, you believe in its story too.
