Well-Rendered's Games of the Generation #1: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Sony Computer Entertainment/Naughty Dog (2009)

I probably should have written a proper article for this post. It would have been nice to reward your patience, at the very least.

But this is all you're getting.  

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is #1 because of all the games released for consoles over the last seven years, it's the one I've enjoyed most. The story is a big part of this, but I've already written an article about why and I would rather not repeat myself.

What an inglorious end to this project! A project, I now realise, I probably should not have started because, with the exception of this piece about Chloe Frazer, it hasn't prompted me to write anything new that I care about. Sure, I've written plenty in the past about many of these games,* but that's exactly it, I've written those articles already, I don't have anything else interesting to say. Reminiscing about the fun you had with something sounds like a good idea when you're planning it, but in reality all you end up doing is writing about yourself.

So it's with great relief that I put this list to bed. I hope that you've enjoyed reading it a little more than I have enjoyed writing it, and rest assured that it will be the last foolhardy list project I ever embark on for Well-Rendered.**

*Articles by me about these games that are actually worth reading:

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
The Last of Us
Deadly Premonition (also here)
Mass Effect 2 (also here)
Tomb Raider (also here, here and here)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim
Fallout 3
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The Walking Dead

**I'm going to finish the Final Fantasy VII one because I'm actually enjoying it. Also, I told Jamie I would finish it, and he knows where I live.
