*** Speaking of which, there's a lot of people who feel that Nadine is a MarySue and token female character, given that [[spoiler:she wins her first fight with Nate, manages to hold off both brothers at once (briefly), and gets to walk away at the end of the game.]] Others argue that [[spoiler:she's clearly a better-trained fighter than Nate, avoids getting in situations where his weight and strength will be effective, throws Nate out a window as soon as possible when she's fighting the brothers, and walking away, given what she's seen, is simply common sense.]]

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Nate's hair never responds to water. For instance, the first trailer for ''Uncharted 4'' shows Nate groggily climbing out of a river. It's very realistic, except for his hair, which is stiff as a brick and barely looks wet. This wouldn't be that noticeable if the games didn't love showing off how his clothes get wet.

** Nate's quip about nothing being worse than a Panamanian jail in the opening cutscene of the first game takes on a new resonance in ''Uncharted 4''; as far as Nate knows, his older brother Sam was killed during their attempt to escape a jail in Panama.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: 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]].

** Is Sam a misguided big brother who just wanted to finish the treasure hunt that he and his little brother started years ago, or is he a manipulative jerk who's only looking out for himself, and doesn't care that he's hurting Nate's life in the process?

** Due to Naughty Dog's [[Videogame/CrashBandicoot previous]] [[Videogame/JakAndDaxter series]] featuring three games and a MascotRacer, it is occasionally joked that Uncharted is due for it's own racing spin-off.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Samuel Drake is singlehandedly responsible for the entire events of ''Uncharted Four'', resulting in the deaths of hundreds of people, all out of a purely selfish desire to get his hands on Avery's treasure. He is willing to [[spoiler: lie to Nathan- and by proxy Sully and Elena- and trick him into risking his life]], and shows no qualms about gunning down mercs and guards who are just doing their job guarding private property or prisons. He also betrays Rafe, even though he was the person who freed him from jail in the first place, just because he wants the treasure- [[MoralMyopia the exact same thing the villain wants]], except it was ''Sam and Nate'' who opened hostilities by stealing the cross and gunning down the guards trying to reclaim it. Which is, by the way, legally Rafe's property that he purchased at an auction fair and square. Even after the truth comes out, he selfishly tries to steal the treasure again, getting more people killed. At the end of it all, Sam is considered "redeemed" despite not doing a thing to earn it and [[KarmaHoudini walks off scott-free.]]

** ''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 that she [[CurbStompBattle utterly destroys]] Drake in combat not once, but twice, being the only villain in the whole series to do so, is also a point of contention.

* TheUntwist / MetaTwist : [[spoiler:If you've played the other games, you might be thinking there was some sort of "X-Factor" secret behind the once-thriving pirate city of Libertalia falling in ''A Thief's End'' as you're playing through. It turns out the most obvious thing happened: the head pirates got greedy and everything went to hell soon after.]]
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: ''Uncharted: Drake's Fortune'' was noted at the time for it's lush and wonderful environments even though it suffered from a few graphical issues. ''Uncharted 2: Among Thieves'' fixes those issues and gives some of the best graphics you can ever have from the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3. ''Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception'' takes it a step further and refines those graphics to make it one of the most visually pleasing games for the system. Then ''Uncharted 4'' came along, blowing all the previous games out of the water in this department, to the point where most people didn't think the first trailer was actually possible in game. It's considered one of, if not ''the'' best-looking UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 games out there--which is saying something since the [=PS4=] is only ''two years'' along in its life when ''4'' came out, setting the bar ridiculously high for any game released after it.
* {{Waggle}}: The first game forces you to control the throwing distance of the grenades with the SIXAXIS function of the controller...making placing grenades quite awkward. Luckily, this was made optional in the sequels.
