I came into this post expecting the ability to answer "Garrus Vakarian"

#3 Posted by NTM (7484 posts) -

@Veektarius: I was going to add "someone else", and it's not that Garrus isn't a great choice, but I wanted to choose these three since they're similar and I'm imagining adventures that they go on. I just didn't want people to choose anyone 'cause I felt this was a little more interesting.

Nathan Drake, because in addition to being kickass, he'd also be a great wingman.

#5 Edited by MooseyMcMan (11301 posts) -

Yeah, I was going to say Snake from the MGS games (specifically MGS3 era "Naked Snake"). He has mad survival skills.

Of those guys...Well, Indy's kinda old now, so I'd go with Drake.

Lt. General Shepard, he's a good american soldier, and they can never do wrong.

The Man in wants to pick Lara, but the Bro in me wants to pick Drake...

#8 Edited by CaLe (4020 posts) -

Lara Croft. And I'd only bring one sleeping bag if you know what I mean, and I think you do. Ohhh yeaahhhhh. Giggidy. Bow-chika-wow-wow.

Yeah, you know what I'm talkin' about.

Nathan Drake seems like a nice person to be around. Lara seems like she'd leave me for dead, and Indy seems like he'd get me killed.

#10 Posted by Ares42 (2729 posts) -

Drake ofc. Having an "always cheerful" genocidal maniac on your side should get you through any danger :P

I initially thought Lara for obvious and selfish sexual reasons... but she seems like she has no personality. I'd pick Drake. You can have more fun and go pick up chicks afterwards. Or you can grab the "other" love interest that ends up showing up he leaves for the nice one.

I love Indy but he doesn't always do well with the side kicks. They can disappear and not reappear in a sequel or outright die.

#13 Posted by NTM (7484 posts) -

@MooseyMcMan: He can be in his prime. At his best, it doesn't have to be their current selves.

If Indy doesn't win this I'll be godamned. The reason I love Uncharted is because it rips off the Indiana Jones films so well. Plus, I get to shoot dudes.

Because you chose to explain, I will take the time to decide within your parameters... I don't have a PS3 so Drake won't come with me, which leaves me choosing between Harrison Ford & Angelina Jolie, and since I don't want a million kids I went with Harrison Ford.

Wait so you're saying Indy? A lot more fisticuffs then shooting dudes with Indy I'd guess.

I do like Uncharted but I feel like I am betraying Indy with my vote... he was the original.

#17 Edited by Godlyawesomeguy (6399 posts) -

Indiana Jones because I could just pretend he's Han Solo.

#18 Posted by Demoskinos (15017 posts) -

Obviously I'd want to shelter and protect Lara because shes a woman.

Anyway, I'd probably just stay home.

#20 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (332 posts) -

I guess out of those three I would pick Nathan Drake.

@Veektarius: Well, you don't, as I wasn't, have to to think about Angelina Jolie's Lara, it can simply be the character from the games, and you also seem to be choosing between Indiana Jones and Angelina Jolie, not Lara Croft. Ha ha, but OK.

Meh to Han Solo. Deckard on the other hand. Actually I just like Blade Runner better than Star Wars, that's the only reason.

#24 Posted by Echofoxz (98 posts) -

It would be awesome and hilarious if I can go on an adventure with Zimos from Saints Row: The Third, who talks completely in auto-tune, but apparently that is not an option. So, Nathan Drake it is.

Wow, I never thought about him being Deckard. That is a fantastic idea, and I hereby change my answer to pretending that he is Rick Deckard.

#26 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Alyx Vance. Oh, from those 3...? Sadly, I'm not familiar enough with Nathan Drake to have a proper opinion and Indiana Jones would be a decrepit old man by now, so I guess Lara Croft.....? Maybe?

I'd have liked to have chosen him too. But maybe mostly for the same reasons most guys here wanted to choose Lara Croft.

Indiana Jones was my choice though. He's pretty nifty and stuff. Has a cool hat.

#28 Posted by MentalDisruption (1642 posts) -

Drake. He seems like a cooler person to hang out with.

#29 Posted by Landon (4152 posts) -

You people picking Drake are morons. I like Drake too, he's awesome, but what's gonna happen when he gets into trouble and hands you a gun? You will be forced to kill dozens upon dozens of people. Can you deal with that trauma?!

#30 Posted by crusader8463 (14423 posts) -

I never liked Indiana and Nathan always kind of annoyed me. I liked the Tomb Raider movies and wouldn't object to getting to follow behind Lara Croft in any of her incarnations so I picked her.

#31 Posted by BoG (5191 posts) -

As long as it's the new Lara Croft, i'll take her. The old one was too Angelina Jolie for my taste, and not all that attractive. It's it's classic Lara, I'll go with Drake. He's funny.

#32 Posted by Gravier251 (217 posts) -

Nathan Drake is amusing and has some pretty good luck. Main cast around him tend to fare well alongside him (and can climb pretty well too). Also the guy is capable of mercilessly gunning down thousands, along with Nazi ghouls and Tibetan super mutants.

Indiana Jones is a nice somewhat amusing guy, but just has the hat and whip along with some underwhelming supporting characters.

Lara Croft is very much a snobbish loner (old Lara). Men around her tend to suffer. Everyone she knows she barely talks to, and they have a habit of a)dying b)being evil. Or a combination thereof. Also she has a habit of decimating the local wildlife while spinning back and forth in the air and smashing ancient relics in persuit of things, rather than careful inspection.

New Lara I haven't seen enough of to comment on, but she certainly seems more human. Too early to really say though so i'll go with Nathan Drake. He can handle the action, is uncannily lucky, in so far as always falling/getting hurt, but in a way that avoids death. He can reason out and explore in a more methodical manner and his companions in his exploits are a nice bunch with a good track record for not getting shot, murdered, devoured by wolves, etc. That Lara's tend to.

#33 Edited by SJSchmidt93 (4896 posts) -

Maybe I could get lucky with Lara.... and Drake would crack the best jokes .... but Indiana Jones is probably the smartest and most experienced of the bunch and therefore the right answer.

#34 Posted by darkdragonmage99 (741 posts) -

I choose other I'd bring Urdnot Wrex from mass effect

[insert Nolan North's witty joke about the situation] trauma? I'm kidding!... Bang! Ha-ha! right Nate?!

#36 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3882 posts) -

Nate could also teach you how to half tuck your shirt just so. Bonus points.

Check out those front-loaded anvils!

#38 Posted by pyromagnestir (4327 posts) -

With Nate I'd probably die trying to follow him up a cliff or building. With Lara I'd probably die walking into a trap whilst trying to peek down her shirt. With Indy I think we'd have a pretty sweet adventure and in the end I'd be alright.

So obviously the answer is Lara.

#39 Posted by Xeiphyer (5606 posts) -

The obvious choice is C, heheheheh.

#40 Posted by DillonWerner (1528 posts) -

Indiana Jones, he got that little kid out of the Temple of Doom if I remember correctly..

#41 Posted by TooWalrus (13237 posts) -

Nolan North!

#42 Posted by SmilingPig (1340 posts) -

I would go with the new moaning Lara that needs protecting by a big strong nerd.

#43 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4639 posts) -

Blah blah blah Lara is a woman and all blah blah blah, but Nathan Drake is fucking awesome.

Oh shit didn't think of that. Even happier with my choice now.

#45 Edited by steveurkel (145 posts) -

Lara croft is my future wife so it is an obvious choice.
 
Listen to sexy european accent and get to fight tyrannosaurs while she mends your wounds and parasailts with you through the trees?
 
Sign me the fuck up!
 
Also, not to be rude but I want the new lara croft - she is so empowered and doesn't afraid of anything.

#46 Posted by NTM (7484 posts) -

Since we're talking about this, now that I've played Uncharted 3 (and it being an amazing game), I feel like I can now think about the newer games coming out like the new Tomb Raider.

#47 Posted by Socialone (202 posts) -

I don't like killing people and mutants so much but solving clever riddles and puzzles is cool. Go Indy. He's also funny without trying too hard *cough drake cough*, a more subtle deadpan humor.

#49 Posted by Xymox (2106 posts) -

Indy will get me dead, so he's out. Nathan is probably a good choise for long-term survival. As for Lara, she'd friendzone me, so I'd rather go with the early, self-reliant Lara. Then I don't have to baby her around so much and I think it would turn out more fun. Going to weird ruins and caves, getting attacked by bats and tigers, grabbing our noses when we run into walls... Good times. Plus, she has a mansion and butler. Nice place to stay between adventures.
