Sundays with Sagat: Uncharted 2

0

If people weren't all that happy with Sagat's thoughts on Super Mario 64, I can only imagine how they'll react to his take on Uncharted 2. Personally, I don't think that Uncharted 2 is that bad. It certainly isn't the only game to do the sort of stuff that Sagat complains about. My guess is that Sagat just isn't used to today's big event "games" and the way they mimic Hollywood popcorn movies. I know Sagat's had some bad experiences in the past with games that reject videogame-logic in favor of Hollywood-logic. Maybe that's where his distaste for the game comes from? Also, purple-bodybuilders-from-space-dressed-like-the-Road-Warrior probably didn't help.

Sagat also doesn't like being lied to. He hates tuning into the Cartoon Network and see a live action Andrew W.K. yelling at him, he hates that MTV is more "Teen TV" than "Music TV" these days, and he hates it when he intentionally puts a game, not a movie, into the "Blu-ray player that plays games too" called a PS3, and still gets stuck with a movie. Even Uncharted 2's biggest fans will tell you that the game is more movie than game. It would be one thing if it was a great movie, but...

On top of that, there's the whole "conspiracy theory" thing he's got going. Sagat seems convinced that many high profile members of the game industry (press, developers, and publishers) are collaborating behind the scenes to make videogames one with Hollywood blockbusters. That way, they too can share in the fame and fortune that comes with being "Hollywood royalty". You should hear the connections he's conjured up about: Netflix on game consoles, Sony's "Talladega" focus on Blu-Ray over games, Kotaku's movie reviews, and how Oprah, Obama, and Bill Cosby are all secretly the same person.

You may think that Sagat is delusional, but no one can deny that he's generous. The first person to name the title, console, and year of release of the game shown when Sagat says "Funny movies to watch" will get an autographed picture of Sagat (and his personal copy of Uncharted 2). Or you could just post something interesting, funny, or stupid in the comments. Maybe Sagat will send you something anyway.
