Fail. Lara = win.

They forget to mention that Uncharted took a bunch of things from Tomb Raider. And what did Tomb Raider really take from Uncharted? Arguably a visual style with the jungles and such, but isn't that just realism?

funny... never heard of that either. :vlol:
seriously though. I never heard of it at all. I must live under a rock or something. Oh yeah... I don't watch much TV. But I cant say as I've ever seen that game in a store. Nor have I heard people talk about it. I hear more about tomb raider than I do about "uncharted" and not just because I visit TRF.

Are you kidding me? Uncharted is a VERY VERY VERY successful game for the PS3. It was PS3 game of the year in 2007! :p

that explains it then. I dont have that console. Only console I have is X-Box (and not even the 360) I play mostly Windows games that I can find at places like Game Stop. I'm a cheap gamer.

I haven't played the game yet, but from what I've seen in videos in the net, it looks better than TR, the graphics, the movement, and the combat

And yeah, my friends have all heard of Uncharted but not TR

Still beat underworld and anniversary in terms of sales and the games a year old thats sayin something, of course it wouldnt beat the other games sales wise they been out forever. I think they keyword here is Nathan aint as big as lara YET just give it time the series will get up there.

At the moment, Nathan seems to be more popular than Lara. The new star of course have the most limelight now but will he sustain in the long run and embeded his name in history like Lara did? :)

Naughty Dog usually make 3 games and moves on to a new series. So I really don't think he will, I see no reason why they would do any different with Uncharted.:)

No way is he more 'popular' than Lara. I've stated this in the other thread, Lara Croft and Tomb Raider are household names. However, I do think Uncharted is the better game. When the PS3 becomes more common, I'm sure he'll recieve more recognition.
