If there is a video game that has made a certain character relatable and lovable, it is no other than "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" from Naughty Dog. It seems to consist all the elements that an action-adventure third-person shooter game should have. Well, it proves to be a massive hit, as it reportedly dominated the UK sales chart.
According to Gamespot, "Uncharted 4" debuted at the first spot particularly for the week that ended on May 16. And not just that, critics deem the game as by far the installment to have the strongest launching in the series.
The debut sales week of "Uncharted 4" surpassed the third installment in the series "Drake's Deception" by a whopping 66 percent. It only goes to show how Naughty Dog gave justice to Nathan's character, with the fourth installment believed to be the conclusion of the protagonist's journey.
Meanwhile, the new "Doom" game (the only new title to arrive at the top) from Bethesda, managed to nab the second spot. The said game has sold more than 67 percent on its first week, a figure that surpasses "Doom 3's."
Most fans and gamers alike believe that the storyline of "Uncharted 4" is the reason behind its huge success. In fact, as reported by The Times of India, the game is heavily drenched in the waters of nostalgia. That if a beginner tends to play the fourth game in the series, he or she might be stirred to watch the previous installments.
In simpler words, the storyline of "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is, to some extent, a throwback to the original games. Although it may not necessarily continue a particular plot, it still has plenty of references that avid fans can surely point out.
