Inspired by Indiana Jones, the Uncharted series is one of the most cinematic productions in gaming right now. Instead of waiting for the live action Hollywood adaptation of the franchise, morphinapg on YouTube decided to take matters into his own hands: edit footage of all three games in the series into three feature-length films.

To do so, morphinapg not only grabbed every cinematic from the games, he also added the "minimum amount of gameplay" necessary to make sure the story would still make sense to someone that's never played the game.

"I've often heard many people describe these games as like controlling a movie, and have heard many people say that these games are just as fun to watch as they are to play, and I agree with both of those things. That gave me the idea to edit these games into movies," a post on Reddit explains. "That way I would be able to watch the story of these games in one sitting easily, and without having to take up a considerable portion of my day. Not only that, but I would be able to show these to people who either don't have a PS3, don't have or want these games but still are interested in seeing the story, or even don't play video games at all."

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (113 minutes)

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (178 minutes)

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (196 minutes)

      Never played any Uncharted games, but is this simply the cut scenes from the game stitched together with some gameplay?

        Looks that way, yeah. Watching a few minutes of the 3rd one made me want to replay it. Damn good games.

      I watched all three over the course of two days. Never played any of the games. The second and third games have some pretty jaw-dropping scenery. I'm pretty tempted to buy a PS3 just to play these games.

        The Uncharted series and God of War 3 ALONE justified my PS3 purchase. Stunning games.

      Interesting, I was always wondering if someone would do this with GTA: San Andreas / GTA IV.

      We have a fan film in the making titled: UNCHARTED: BROKEN FAITH a spin off creation based on the Uncharted Series with a new character and a new adventure for all time fan favorite, Nathan Drake. We see that youʼve given some digital ink to news revolving around the game or creators and weʼd love to get in on that action.

      Since this is a non-income generating project, kept strictly for the festival audience, we would love your support in any way. This is a FAN film. This game has millions of fans around the world, but we need help to spread the word. We plan on using the Kickstarter platform to raise money for the film and want to attract fans in droves to donate and bring this project to life.

      We will of course make sure to include a link to your work, so our viewers can easily find you on the Interwebs. Hopefully this means that some of our love will head your way, vis a vis streams from what we release. Here are a few places you can find us online:
