Uncharted Territory

Over the last week I’ve been playing Uncharted – Legacy of Thieves Collection on the PlayStation 5. It has just been remastered for the new console with improved graphics.

The collection consists of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and a shorter follow-up titled Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Both games, as with all in the series, are rollicking adventures full of fun, danger and emotion. Uncharted 4 has a moment that was as emotional and impactful as anything I’ve seen in the best movies. You can view that here on YouTube – warning spoilers.

It makes me sad to think many will never experience what these games can bring, because they are "computer games" and so seen as beneath many people. I wonder if this is because the associate gaming (the biggest entertainment industry on the planet) with the computers they don’t understand.

Not the same at all.
