Uncharted is an action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game series developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation consoles. The series follows protagonist Nathan “Nate” Drake (portrayed by Nolan North through voice and motion capture) a charismatic yet obsessive treasure hunter who journeys across the world to uncover various historical mysteries.
All four games in the main series have been widely credited by critics and video game publications for raising the standards of single-player video games, particularly with the series’ second installment, Among Thieves, which is considered one of the greatest video games of all time. Reviewers have praised the games for their high production values, quality in storytelling, character design and animation, voice acting, realistic graphics, technical innovation, music score, gameplay mechanics, and delivering an enjoyable cinematic gaming experience to players. Critics have likened the series to Hollywood-produced action-adventure films, particularly with the Indiana Jones films, and Tomb Raider, which helped pioneer the action-adventure genre in video gaming. After the release of Uncharted 4, the series had sold over 41 million units, with the fourth installment becoming the highest-selling in the series with over 8.7 million copies sold. The critical and commercial success of the Uncharted games have been pivotal to the success of PlayStation during the seventh and eighth generation of video game consoles and has helped elevate Naughty Dog’s reputation to a highly respected video game developer in the industry.
