Hmm... interesting that you played this without playing any of the other mainline games. Definitely the story and characters are much more interesting and meaningful after playing the other games, especially Uncharted 2 and 4. Uncharted games’ stories are not typically deep or awe inspiring, so much as they have such excellent delivery. Usually the story involves an Indiana Jones style chase after some kind of artifact or archaeological find for one reason or another. The beauty is in the journey and development of the individuals involved. Inter-character relations is one of the series’ strong suits. I agree the villians are not always the most impressive part, the focus they take is really developing the protagonists. Nadine is the perfect example of this, given that she was one of the villians in 4, but we really grow to know her in Lost Legacy.
Anyways, I love the series and Lost Legacy is deserving of the #2 spot. Exactly where I had it on my list. Poor lil’ NieR is my #1 and appears to be getting the snub. :’(
