Top 10 Action Games Of All Time

5: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

The very opening sequence of Uncharted 2 lets you know this sequel blows the original out of the water. Drake clutches a bloody hand against a gunshot on his stomach as he comes to, realizing he’s in a busted train car teetering over a fatal precipice.

This in media res moment sets the stage for the terrible things to come for the cavalier treasure hunter. Uncharted 2 ratchets up the white-knuckle action of the original with new set pieces like escaping a building that collapses in real time and fleeing from a mysterious creature in a frozen cave.

The improved controls, unforgettable moments, and Drake and Elena’s charming banter make this sequel a high point for the series.
