** ''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]].

** [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Or it could just be]] GameplayAndStorySegregation. Naughty Dog heavily implies that's the case in Uncharted 4 when they term an achievement for killing enemies "[[SelfDeprecation Ludonarrative Dissonance]]."
*** The question made more sense in ''Uncharted 3'', which did a lot to support that reading, such as the conversation with Marlowe after Nate wakes up from being drugged. The idea is that Nate's early life was terrible, so he came up with "Nathan Drake" as a sort of escapist persona for himself. With the retroactive insertion of his older brother Sam in ''Uncharted 4'', that interpretation has a lot less going for it.

* SoCoolItsAwesome: Four games in the series, all of them very successful, and highly rated (''Drake's Fortune,'' the lowest rated, has a Metacritic score of 88). They're renowned for combined great dialogue and storytelling with excellent gameplay and breathtaking visuals. Within the series, ''Among Thieves,'' the winner of more than twenty Game of the Year awards, has this reputation.

* ThatOnePuzzle: The 'lining up the body parts' puzzle in chapter 11 of ''Drake's Deception''. The idea is to place a make shift 'torch' into one of ''several'' holes in the ground, and the light from it is supposed to cast a certain shadow onto the wall. You can switch to first person view to line it up, and the guide hints that a shadow should be cast to help you. However in game, this doesn't happen.

You can switch to first person view to line it up, and the guide hints that a shadow should be cast to help you. However in game, this doesn't happen. For the uninitiated: stand at four o'clock relative to the center of the room facing the wall, and face ten o'clock. The aligned shadows will create the image of the man, and inserting the torch into the slot at that position will make it look like he's attacking the other guy in the mural. The game's hints on this puzzle are unhelpful, making this one an exercise in trial-and-error.
