I love to play and capture classic games and share the videos with others on the internet, but I prefer to play Next Generation Games (what a stupid word for games released in the last 5 years) for myself.
Uncharted for the PS3 is one of this games that got my full attention since I have it. There was not a single game in the last 5 years that I enjoyed playing that much. Uncharted 2 is out for some weeks now and I started to like the idea to reach the 100% on the first game. I cant remember when I was trying the last time to get a game 100% complete.
Read more about an old flame that has started to burn again in my heart.
100% and nobody cared about it
In my younger days I had a lot of time to play games and to finish them 100%. But honestly… the old era of games did not support any achievement or trophy system that you could share with the world. Nobody cared about my speedruns for Resident Evil 2 on the PSOne.
Playing multiple times through every scenario to reach the well hidden superweapon and to unlock the 3rd and 4th survivor scenarios. No system took a note about successfully accomplished challenges. Some people captured their gameplay on VHS video to share their challenges with the world. Others captured screenshots and lot of other people could not do anything like that.
But now almost every console features internet connection and ranking systems. A new era began: Do and share!
Do and share!
The Xbox gives you achievements, the PS3 rewards you with trophies and the Wii.. (I dont care.. I never was a fan of Nintendo). Now its possible to accomplish different tasks inside your favourite games to get one of this achievements and trophies.
Now there is a reason to take on the challenges to replay a game as much as you want to get every hidden secret the game offers. No more using VHS cassettes or screenshots. You dont even need to capture your gameplay anymore, because the new consoles automatically save your progress and share the results with others.
I want to know it,
I want to know if I can do it again and complete a video game with 100%. My first attempt is Uncharted and I am near to get what I desire. Only 2 Treasures needed for Master Fortune Hunter, and only 3 chapters on Crushing Difficulty stand between me and all trophies.
But the most crushing part of the game needs to be solved tomorrow: The Chapter “Race to Rescue” or how I would call it: “A Race of Survival” because this chapter already was a pain in my ass on the Hard Difficulty. I am very sorry about not to capture me playing this part. But I dont have the hard and software to record from a video game console.
In the end
But its good to know that I can share the results with you. Maybe you will see a shiny 100% when following this link to my trophy list of Uncharted: Drakes Fortune soon.
