25 PlayStation Games You Must Play Before You're 25

1. Uncharted (Drake's Fortune, Among Thieves, Drake's Deception & A Thief's End)

Naughty Dog

As much as I adore The Last of Us, there's something about the way Naughty Dog's genius writing duo of Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley assembled the Uncharted quadrilogy, that comes together like nothing else.

Whilst you can almost skip the inaugural instalment thanks to such a leap in quality between that and its sequel, the adventures you go on with Drake paint a perfect picture of a happy-go-lucky rogue with a heart of gold, the love of his life and a best friend who doubles as a mentor figure.

Come Uncharted 4 and that all pays off, providing the perfect wrap-up to a now aged Nathan Drake, and giving all us 90s gamers a reflective look into what it means to grow old and settle down, whilst not losing any part of your youthful identity.

To say more would ruin the surprise, but just know that - although it takes a hefty amount of time invested - Drake's tale of high-falutin' adventures and grounded, 'life catches up' reality-checks, is one of the best written in all of gaming.
