Because I sure did and I have talked to others who did the same thing as me. I got my PS3 at the end of 07 and Uncharted was winning Game of the Year in many places. I figured it had to be good, but didnt want to just buy it - figured I'd check out the demo first and I was less than impressed...it just seemed bland....no better way to put it. I didnt have fun with the demo and basically just put Uncharted on my "merrrr" list of games I'd never bother with. Now 2 years later, I've heard enough raving about Uncharted 2 that I decided I want to check it out - I was told that playing the first one was a must not only because of the story, but because it's one of the best games on PS3 and I was a fool to skip it in the first place...which always shocked me to hear because of how little the demo interested me..... So, I decided I'd pick up the first one since it's only 20-30 bucks and figured if I got into the story and the game and beat it, I'd get 2. If I couldnt get into it, it wasnt a huge investment. I really wasnt expecting much to be honest, after not enjoying the demo I figured maybe I'd force myself through it so I could get to 2 which I'm told is even better... Let me tell you something friends....Sony fucked up when they made the Uncharted demo...this game is absolutely great and I would have never bothered with it if I based it purely on my thoughts after the demo. I can't believe I waited this long to play this game. I just wanted to spread the word to those of you who did the same thing as I did. I know I've heard others say the same thing about this game, that the demo did nothing for them so they never bothered with it....I'm really glad I gave it another shot because the story and the gameplay are both incredible. I'm sure I'm going to fly through this one and get to 2 soon. Cliffs: If you downloaded the Uncharted demo and decided to skip the game because you didnt enjoy it, you might want to go out and buy the game...the demo does NOT do it justice.
