I don't mean to be a needy prick, but I've been reading places like IGN to get some reviews on these games you're all talking about, and they read like commercials.
I've been out of the videogame loop since Zelda Windwaker came out on the Game Cube, but I got a PS3 and full on geeked out over Batman: Arkham Asylum, which I've now passed. I wouldn't mind picking up a game or two more, but I am by no means a hardcore gamer.
That said, can any of you guys who have played Uncharted and Uncharted 2, plus Assassin's Creed 2, give me a bit of a synopsis of the games? They're obviously highly endorsed by you guys, but I guess I like a certain kind of game and want to know what I'm getting into.
