If you don't have the time, 2 and 4 are essential. 1 and 3 aren't bad, but they're definitely the lesser of the mainline games.

It's not as if he's got 4 Skyrims to play. You might as well play them all, they're all good.

He clearly wants to play only the very best the series has to offer. 2, 4 and LL are that.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I don't have that much time anymore to play games so when I do, I try to make sure they're all great and not a waste of my limited time.

Having said that I might just pick up the collection and start with that after all. A fair few seem to feel quite strongly about the series as a whole.

One of Uncharted's undoubted strengths are the characters. I think the need to play all 5 games depends on how much you care about them.

1 is my favourite, but it feels like a pilot. Sketches of gameplay ideas and a simple story.
2 goes more for the Hollywood blockbuster vibe, has improvements across the board, but in 2017 might seem like it's the kind of game that's been done to death.
3 doubles down on the flashy action, but the gameplay is busted and the story is strawberry floating shite. Textbook example of spectacle creep, where everything has to be bigger and crazier than before, at all costs.
4 feels more like a reboot than a sequel, with a stronger emphasis on characters and story than over-the-top action. Contender for the greatest looking game of all time, on any platform, but doesn't try to drastically reinvent its gameplay, which is aging. Any big new ideas are, like 1, more like sketches of something that will be further developed in future.
Lost Legacy is more like an expansion pack to 4. Runs a little further with its new ideas, but not enough to be its own thing, really.

I think Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy have the highest production values of any single-player campaign in the world. I miss the earnest, plucky roots of Uncharted 1, but a lot of my enjoyment from the series just comes from its super premium quality now.

If you play the original trilogy now, it's possible you'll be burned out before you get to the new stuff, if not soured by the 3rd one. I'd just start with 4. You don't need to have played the previous games to follow the story or characters at all.

I've only played 1-3 but I thought 3 was ok really. 1 is utter gash. 2 probably the best but falls off a cliff towards then end. 3 is a bit patchy.

2 > LL > 4 > 3 > GA/1

1 is miles better than 3

Story is better, gameplay is better (no bullet sponges and the melee system is more reactive than BEGIN MELEE SEQUENCE)

The only thing 3 has over it is production values.
3 plays the series 'in jokes' up way too much, has whole chapters that are very clearly filler, has terrible combat with bullet sponges and enemies that spawn in behind you.

And half the story is just trying to trick you into thinking certain characters are dead

A bit late to the party. I've reached the ending of Chapter Four and it is fantastic so far! I know it's still early to tell and my feeling is that it is better than Rise of the Tomb Raider. :o I love the puzzles of the eleven tokens and it took me proper two hours to explore the whole area on the map. It's also gorgeous and impressive graphics.

Oh, Chloe Frazer > Lara Croft. Dat Ass. :datass: :wub:

Oh, the Queen's Ruby. I thought all previous Uncharted games should have included this feature.

The dynamic lighting in this game is really strawberry floating with my eyes.

I know it's meant to simulate human vision, but every time I go in or out of shadows everything becomes way too bright or too dark for a few seconds, it's not immersive at all. The motion blur was a bit too much as well, had to turn it down because it was making me feel a bit ill, and I NEVER get motion sickness.

It's fantastic so far and I'm currently into Chapter Seven. The scene with a baby elephant was amazing. :wub:

Also, does anyone have a problem with Jak & Daxter? Every time I tried a new game and the intro cut scene kept frozen at same scene when Daxter talked/smiled. :( It seems like I can't start the game at all. Sucks.

It's a bit glitchy, first time I started it and changed the frame rate to 60hz in the options menu the entire game bugged out, I posted a screenshot in the GrCade community.

But the next time I booted it up and changed it it was fine, so not sure what happened there.

This. People seem happy to overlook just how bad the end of 2 is, it has one of the worst boss battles in any game. I was glad when it was over.

Just play 4, it's fantastic.

Now, it's been my fourth frozen during one hour of playing this. It's annoying. :x
