I generally hate the idea of these movie-like cinematic games but Uncharted 2 is one of the firsts that did it right.
I've played that game over and over and even finished on Crushing without having tons of skill.
That game makes me regret ever selling my PS3 when I was running out of money. Sold the original brick version for $100. How stupid!
I have to say though that unfortunately my Xbox 360 got 3x as much use as the PS3. For me it's all about the games.
I'm waiting on the PS4 and Xbox One until I find out which ones have the best games. Of course it'll be whatever has Half Life 3 or Fallout 4!
Neither look good enough to buy yet. Not enough games.
I liked it better than Uncharted 2. That is saying a lot for me as Uncharted 2 was the best game out of the series over all. I still really like the story of Uncharted 1 and its a toss up between 1 and 2 for the best single player, 3 had the best multiplayer but had the worst single player (story wise) imo. None of the games were ever too difficult on crushing.
Anyways I still find Last of Us to trump all of them for single player. Uncharted plays out like a very very solid action movie, while Last of Us plays out more like a drama. Last of Us will send you through a roller coaster of emotions, and never feels like it plays it safe. This makes Last of Us pretty unpredictable plot wise, especially considering all the hardships the characters go through. I also found that Uncharted was well above average in character development, but Last of Us felt in another league. I never felt so emotionally attached to a character in a video game before. The game play was also pretty refreshing in Last of Us. While the easier difficulties remove some of the survival decisions you make, the hardest difficulty really forces you to make good decisions like avoiding contact or stealth killing people. The game really gets intense on the hardest difficulty, which is something that I found lacking in the Uncharted series. Last of Us is a top notch game despite being in an all too well known zombie genre.
The Uncharted multiplayer is much better, but Last of Us was ok. The Multiplayer relies on too much teamwork, and also relies on a lot of strategy and overall skill. Which is somewhat a good thing, but the game becomes very frustrating like Gears of War can get. Gears of War is great multiplayer wise if you have been playing it forever, but if you are brand new you really get your ass handed to you. Even when I was good at the game I still found my self raging pretty hard on my bad games. The MP becomes so intense its very annoying to lose.
If your interested in ever playing the game do not watch any footage (if you have not already), the game starts off quite emotional.
Also I am surprised you said you liked 360 better because of the games. I always felt that the PS3 was head and shoulders above 360 in exclusives. Granted it could just be my interest in games. Just to name some exclusives Infamous, Resistance, Uncharted, Twisted Metal (I loved this game, and do not understand the criticism), Heavy Rain, God of War, MGS4, Demons Souls, and more.
