* GoodBadBugs: The "Skylaunch Glitch" in ''Drake's Fortune''. Rolling on upwards angled surfaces and then hitting L2 at the right time can cause Nate to be launched high in the air. This can be used to skip parts of the game when speedrunning.
** ''Uncharted 4'' has a tendency to break one way or another when being demoed, including Drake clipping through the ground during The Playstation Experience and the controls not responding during a demo in E3 2015. Fans have actually responded well to these, as it shows that the game's actually being played and it's not pre-rendered.

** However Uncharted 4 [[spoilers: suggests that Nate's ''mother'' is the one who believes that she's descended from Francis Drake.]]

** Subverted in Uncharted 3. [[spoiler:It turns out that Nate's an escapist character for himself as well. In actuality he was never related to Francis Drake and was just an orphan abandoned by his parents]]

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
Is Nathan Drake a happy-go-lucky adventurer who regrets but doesn't dwell on the high human cost of his endeavors, or is he a high-functioning clinical sociopath hiding behind a jokey facade, whose friends are mostly unaware of the true depths of his ruthlessness? You can read one argument for the latter [[http://tay.kinja.com/how-do-we-stop-nathan-drake-1595867612 here]].

to:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: AcceptableTargets: The British. And to a lesser extent The Russians and South Africans. The third game ''tries'' to counter balance this by adding a British companion to Drake's team, but the predominant depiction of British characters in the series shows them as either thuggish, scheming, or antagonistic.

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: Largely downplayed, if not outright averted. ''Uncharted 3'' had to follow up on the universally acclaimed second game. While most people felt it wasn't ''quite'' the masterpiece the second one was, it was still a brilliant game in and of itself. ''Uncharted 4'' also suffered from this a bit, less from following "Uncharted 3" than Naughty Dog's 2013 hit ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'', although it too was able to hold its own and is nevertheless considered superior to the third game in the series.

Added DiffLines:

** There's a bit in ''A Thief's End'' where Nathan's flashlight is dying, and the player is prompted to hit the controller to make him hit the flashlight. It's the only non-button prompt in the game.

** ''Among Thieves'' and ''Drake's Deception'' had {{Renegade Russian}}s and {{Evil Brit}}s as the predominantly caucasian antagonists of the respective entries. In addition, ''A Thief's End'' has Drake going up against {{Amoral Afrikaner}}s for a PirateBooty, the lead bad guy Rafe Adler is American, and the seemingly stereotypical Latin American druglord set up as the GreaterScopeVillain [[spoiler:turns out to be part of a lying flashback made up by Sam Drake precisely to appeal to Nathan]].

** ''Uncharted 4'' brings in Nadine Ross. People either perceive her as a {{badass}}, complex AntiVillain who [[spoiler: [[KarmaHoudini deserved to surivive the game unscathed]]]] or a boring InvincibleVillain who should have been defeated in the end. The fact she [[CurbStompBattle utterly destroys]] Drake in combat not once, but twice, being the only villain in the whole series to do so also being a point of contention.
** Sam as well. Some fans love Troy Baker's chemistry with Nolan North and view Sam's introduction to the plot as a welcome element, while others feel his insertion to be [[RememberTheNewGuy more than a little clunky.]] The fact that Sam's existance goes against previously established lore in ''Drake's Deception'' is also a contentious topic.

** Hector Alcázar made a pretty big impression in Uncharted 4 as an AffablyEvil, eloquent drug lord who takes an interest in Sam and is set up as the game's GreaterScopeVillain. [[spoiler:Fans were not pleases when it turned out that Sam faked him and the Alcázar we met was part of a lying flashback]].
