Uncharted: Among Thieves game director Bruce Straley has told CVG that he reckons the Uncharted franchise is already as popular as Tomb Raider, and perhaps even more so.

“I feel that Nathan Drake can stand on his own in any line up of the video game pantheon.”
We’re just checking with the Eidos team to see what they have to say on the matter.

In and interview with CVG, Uncharted: Among Thieves game director, Bruce Straley, said that it is Nathan Drake’s human qualities as a videogame character that sets him apart from the rest of the pack.
“We worked hard to make Nathan Drake feel like a real person, and as grounded a hero as we’ve yet seen in video games, ” said Straley. “He’s not your typical video game hero, destroying 50 foot aliens in his armored space suit.”
“He’s a real dude existing somewhere on this planet right now, dealing with the people he’s surrounded himself by, and the situations he finds himself in.”
