Quantum Break Is Blatantly Better Than Uncharted 4

Reviews for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End were published this past week, and the Internet flipped out over them because Uncharted reviews bring the very worst dregs of humanity crawling out from under rotted driftwood.

Any scores lower than a nine were deemed too low by people who haven’t even played the game, as Uncharted‘s witchfinder generals selected critics to be pilloried in the name of corporate products.

Naturally, your ol’ pal Jim Sterling was hunted by Naughty Dog’s unofficial PR department – they were infuriated at the low “clickbait” score of 8.5.

The biggest insult, to these brave warriors, was the fact I scored Quantum Break the same, which means I said they’re exactly the same game!

Of course, this was wrong. It was incorrect for me to even imply that Remedy’s Xbox One exclusive was on the same level as Uncharted 4.

Obviously, it’s better, and I’m going to tell you why.
