An enterprising Reddit user has cut together gameplay footage and cutscenes from the three Uncharted games to create a complete movie trilogy of Nathan Drake's adventures.

The Uncharted series of games are known for their snappy writing, great vocal performances, and cinematic feel. Of course, there is the matter of all that bothersome gameplay that gets in the way of the movie experience, so a Reddit user by the name of morphinapg took the logical next step: actually cutting footage of the games together to create a fully-realized trilogy of films. Spanning all three entries in the PlayStation 3 series, morphinapg combined captured cutscenes and gameplay footage, with the goal of creating movies that would work as stand-alone features even if the viewer wasn't already familiar with the games. From what we've seen so far, it's safe to say he's succeeded. If you don't have a PlayStation 3 and would like to visit the world of Nathan Drake — or are a long-time fan and would like a trip down memory lane — you can find the films for Uncharted, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on YouTube.
