    Uncharted 2 was the best Uncharted.

      Agreed.

        Star Wars 1313 was the best Uncharted.

        Oh wait T____T

    • Austin Garcia

      Your face was the worst Uncharted

  • Alexei Cherkasov

    omg the list had SR3 and neither RDR, nor gtaV? wtf

    Hmm yeah Uncharted 2 had better pacing.
    Metal Gear 4 was out to early in the generation I would say. If that had of been on the Fox engine :S
    Halo 3 really? Not Reach the one that was bigger and better in every single way? Halo3′s hype was and still is the most overhyped/rated game in history, if you worked in retail back then, you KNOW what I am talking about.
    Saints Row 3? lol okay
    Tekken Tag 2. Although Tekken is my fighting game of choice and I don’t care much for Street Fighter, this should really be given to SF IV. I mean the reviews and fan feedback are gargantuan compared to Tekken this generation even though personally I still hate SF IV myself.

    I would’ve included …..FALLOUT 3!

    FPS-RPG … I loved the first two fallouts 20 years ago and never imagined when I played them what Fallout 3 would become. Bethesda nailed it.

    No Gears of War? Instant fail.

    And no Fallout…..? Can’t be taken serious.
