Harrison Ford plays 'Uncharted 3': 'It's like being in the movie, except in the movie, I always win!'

Anyone who has played the outrageously entertaining Uncharted franchise knows just how much its hero, Nathan Drake, resembles a modern-day Indiana Jones, down to his youthful, Harrison Ford-esque profile. So what would happen if Harrison Ford played Nathan Drake?

Well, some brilliant Japanese folks somehow managed to get Ford in front of the wildly anticipated Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, which hits stores tomorrow. Watching him smile, laugh, and gasp as he button-mashes through some of the game’s most eye-popping sequences — so, yes, SPOILER ALERT for anyone who wants to play the game with virgin eyes — is maybe the most transcendent pop culture moment I’m likely to see all week, if not all year. Check it out below: 

As it happens, I’ll be posting my full review of Uncharted 3 tomorrow, and then launching something of a PopWatch experiment: An EW.com videogame recap of Drake’s latest adventure, posted likely every-other-day until we get to the end. Having played through the entire game once already, here’s a quick preview of coming attractions: OH. MY. F—ING. GOODNESS.

    Harrison Ford IS the original Nathan Drake. Without Dr. Jones, I feel Nathan Drake wouldn’t have happened. Both awesome franchises!

    Was I the only one hoping that, during the part where he’s fighting the guy on the plane with the loading bay open, that he would say “Get off my plane!!” I love Harrison Ford.

      kaban00 Posted on Osobiście nie podoba mi się wasze podejście do uptade 1.8, chodzi mi mianowicie o rangi. Moim zdaniem to jest nie fair względem osf3b, ktf3re nie mają aż tak wielkiej inwencji twf3rczej jak inni gracze z serwera justcraft. Przypuśćmy że taka osoba jak ja i jestem pewny że wiele innych uwielbia ten serwer, gra na nim w każdej wolnej chwili ale nie jest aż tak bardzo kreatywna żeby budować jakieś super budowle po uptade nie będzie mogła absolutnie nic zrobić na serwerze gdyż nie będzie posiadała tej upragnionej rangi GRACZA. Ja nie posiadam aż takich umiejętności architektonicznych więc w grze na serwerze jcraft postawiłem na rozwf3j, handel z innymi graczami, przygody w dungach i samą przyjemność z rozgrywki. Naprawdę przecudownie jest doczytać się że od nowego patcha nie bede miał możliwości wybudowania swojego domku. Tłumaczycie się że to zapobiegnie tworzeniu przez innych graczy projektf3w z zakazanych materiałf3w m.in cobbla, ale ja (jak i wiele innych osf3b) nigdy nie zbudowałem czegoś z cobbla bo potrafię czytać zasady. Prosiłbym o zastanowienie się szanownej grupy Modkf3w i Administratorf3w, gdyż przez to co chcecie zrobić skrzywdzicie wiele osf3b jak i odbije się to na grywalności.Pozdrawiam kaban00.

    But what did Nathan Drake think when he watched the Indiana Jones movies?

    • Roland

      Probably the same thing we all were thinking: “a refrigerator? A Refrigerator? A REFRIGERATOR?!??”

    You gotta love Harrison Ford. I have not really played the Uncharted games yet, but i would love to play an Indiana Jones game, how come they have not made one of those yet for the ps3? It would be even cooler if they got Mark Hamil and Harrison Ford to play The force unleashed in the same room.

    If a piece of crap conservative like Ford likes it, then I’m out.

      ravort Posted on Przeprowadzaliśmy rozmowę na ten temat chyba ponad pf3łtorej goizndy. Były rf3żne propozycje i rf3żnice w zdaniach. Jednak wybraliśmy najlepszą opcję. Głf3wnie chodzi nam o to by na serwer nie wchodziły osoby, ktf3re chcą tylko zgriefować, powyzywać lub pospamować. Nie przejmujcie się tym aż nad ponieważ też jesteśmy ludźmi i też nie zaczynaliśmy od budowy wielkich konstrukcji.

    It’s a very nice add; but there something that bothers me a lot; how is Harrison playing with a turn off controller?
