Mark Buckingham: It's Uncharted. The previous games in the trilogy are consistently near the top of the heap on Metacritic and have won over fans around the globe. The new hardware could allow even greater production value to bring the stories of treasure hunter Nathan Drake to vibrant life.
Redmond Carolipio: Drake's last chapter was well-done and fun, but a few people believed that it didn't harness the same kind of electricity that coursed through the Uncharted 2 experience. The thought of Naughty Dog unspooling some of its artistic repertoire within the confines of the PS4 tells me it'll be a shoo-in for some awards on hype alone. There's been some talk among fans that it might be time to retire Nate, but I think that's noise. I don't think the world's ready for an Uncharted without Drake.
Dustin Chadwell: I know virtually nothing about Uncharted 4, and I'm still excited for it. That's strictly based on the fact that we know Naughty Dog can deliver, with its stellar track record on the PS3 that is sure to carry over to the PS4. Considering how gorgeous the series looked in the last gen, how can you not be excited to see what Drake's adventures look like on the PlayStation 4?
Thomas Wilde: I have a complicated reaction to Nathan Drake, who comes off to me like he's got a particularly murderous brand of narcissistic personality disorder, but the Uncharted series delivers some of the most high-spectacle set pieces in modern video games. I'm hoping Uncharted 4 has less of Drake mowing down 6,000 faceless, apparently suicidal mercenaries and more of Drake climbing all over the crumbling facade of some ancient relic.
