This does not negate my previous post, but last night I was playing some more Uncharted 3 and I experienced two sequences that I found exhilarating (something I hadn't felt with this game until this point). The escape from the tanker was great (started iffy to me). But the following sequence involving a plane might be my favorite gaming moment of 2011 (even though I experienced it in 2012 . . .????). I was practically laughing out loud because I could not believe what was happening. Amazing. Intense. Brilliant on a technical level. But more importantly, the first time I had ever experienced that. Bravo for that sequence Naughty Dog. I really hope more await before the game's end. Maybe overall I'll come away with positive feelings on this one yet . . .
