Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (2011)

Genre: Action & Adventure | Players: 1 - ? | Developer: Naughty Dog

Following in the tradition of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider, the Uncharted series reinvents the old fashioned spirit of fun and adventure for a whole new generation. This latest entry proves to be the greatest one yet, with an epic storyline and expansive set pieces involving ships, aircrafts, vast deserts, and so, so much more. I was blown away how gorgeous and flawless the graphics look; the gameplay feels so polished and ever-changing and never boring; I wonder what it's going to be like looking back on this in 10 years. The larger-than-life quality of the story and the characters makes it feel more like a movie than most movies, if that makes any sense.

If there's one bad thing that could be said about it, it's that it feels short, because you never want to put it down; I completed it in only 2 days of not showering or leaving the house (10 hours total; same as the other two), but I can't wait to play it through another time. Plus there's shitloads of multiplayer content to keep this player busy. Can't say enough about it; it's the best action-adventure game I've experienced since God of War III.
