4 is great but has extremely poor pacing. There were times when I just wanted the game to be over. Not sure why Lost Legacy wasn't included when ranking them, it's at least better than 3 and has better pacing than 4.

 

I would go with 2 > 4 > LL > 1 > 3

I agree, how is it so highly reviewed?  I feel like 80% of the game is climbing, climbing, and more climbing.

you're definitely in the minority, 2 is a masterpiece in every way and probably the only good uncharted game.

It's probably the plethora of people calling it a "masterpiece in every way" that caused the last third of the game to backfire so hard on me.  They introduce enemies that aren't challenging, they're annoying.  It's kinda Uncharted's shtick to do this, but it was the worst in this game by far.  They introduce plot points that make the game completely....boring and predictable.  Then you have one of the worst boss fights I've played in a AAA game, with some cringy dialogue: "YOU'RE just as bad as ME!" cliche garbage.  Imo, Uncharted is at its best when it focuses on exploration, mystery, and set pieces.  4 is the only game in the series that fully delivered on that for me, and it didn't throw in fucking annoying enemy types for the last part of the game.

 

I don't have anything against people that like 2 the most, or even people who call it a masterpiece.  I just don't get it.

I really enjoyed U4 but I think The Lost Legacy might be the better game, especially in terms of pacing. 

 

Personally, I'd probably rank them as: 

 

U:TLL > U4 > U3 > U2 > U1

 

Rather chronological. :)

U2 > U3 > U1

 

There is no debating this, it is simply fact.

If you can get past the dated game play U1 is much better than U3. The game's plot ruins the whole experience imo. The first hour was great but the ending act was such a cop out.

4 > 3 > 2 > 1

Apparently I'm the only person on the planet that thought the last third of 2 was absolute horse shit in every way (gameplay, story, scenery, set pieces, everything sucked shit). That just about ruined the whole game for me. 1 was pretty forgettable, so it's last on my list.

I sat down and played each game for the first time back to back over the course of a few days when 4 came out and that's how I felt about them. I'm convinced that people like 2 the most because the PS3 was completely underwhelming prior to that release and everyone managed to forget about how awful that game is towards the end (understand that I thought the first 2/3s of the game were great).

I’ll be in the minority and agree with you on this one.

Exactly.

 

My order is 2 > 4 > LL > 3 > 1 >>>>>>>>>>>>> GA

 

I had more fun with 2 at the time, even though it is clearly inferior techwise.  It just felt better to me since it was doing some things that felt really fresh and cool.  By the time 4 rolled around, the graphics were amazing, but I'd ridden this horse before.

Is Persona 5 expected to be hard-to-find anytime soon?  I'm not ready to play it just yet, but $30 is certainly the cheapest I've seen it.  I'm afraid that if I wait too long, it'll go out of print and I won't be able to find new copies at a decent price.

Lego Worlds for Switch is decently priced at $20.  I know it was cheaper on BF but hasn't been that cheap since  (and it sold out rather quickly too)

It falls under the Holiday return dates of October 1 through December 24th. I purchased my X1X on Black Friday, maybe we can return rebuy. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience return rebuying if you used all trade credit for the original purchase and wanted to rebuy with that credit again? Thanks

I attempted a return/rebuy with a ps4 pro for the updated deal. Found out general GS policy is you can do a return/rebuy on a new system if it's within the return window and the box in unopened and sealed. General rule is they won't do it if opened. This has to do with when the warranty period begins. Sales transaction records the serial number & if you've registered the system online then you've definitely triggered the warranty. But YMMV.

Form of payment shouldn't matter (cash, cc, tc, etc.). I've done lots of return rebuys with trade credit without an issue. The caveat is that the employee has to know what they're doing. Otherwise it turns into a fiasco.

Is Hitman worth $20? Kinda interested in it, but I'm not sure if its been lower.

I didn't like it. And I like stealth games.

No it didn't. Only used prices I notice drop were BF 1, Dishonored 2, & Prey.

Did you just bring in the receipt or did you have to bring the console in as well?

Mine was sealed so I brought it in. I'm pretty sure they need to scan in the serial # to return/rebuy but could be wrong. The serial # should be on the receipt so I would try with the receipt only first and worst case bring in the box or console.

It still seems hard to find Nier.

 

(Also, there's no such thing as a good Uncharted game. Naughty Dog hasn't made anything worth playing since Jak 3.)

Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.  But seriously?  The Last of Us?  WTF, Jak 3?  No good Uncharted game? Such a hipster comment.

Closest thing to something good they've made is "Left Behind" which wasn't saddled with the shortcomings of TLoU (namely the illusion of freedom, giving you the option of stealthing just up to the point where the game wants to remind you that as a player your agency is always limited, which was handled at least conceptually well with the ending, but incredibly poorly in the gameplay up to that point) or the poor writing that has plagued UC since the first game. Obviously the games look great, but mechanically they are rough to play, a problem with a good number of third person shooters so that's not just a Naughty Dog thing, and it's hard to be sympathetic or a character who is a mass murdering machine. I get why people like Naughty Dog games, they guide you down a path and look pretty, but even compared to something like the more recent Tomb Raiders, which very clearly ape a ton from UC, they feel so far behind and limited in scope. Some of this is rectified in TLL, like in the more open areas of UC4, but even that has a problem kicking all the bad habits that have come to mark PS3 and beyond era Naughty Dog.

 

Not really sure what the problem with Jak 3 is, aside from it not being as good as Jak 2 or any of the R&C PS2 titles. Crash Team Racing is also a good game; however, the original Crash games, while admirable at the time for what they did, are also not good games.
