Game: Uncharted 2
Song: Nate%26rsquo;s Theme 2.0
Composer: Greg Edmonson

I love, love, LOVE the opening of the Uncharted games. Even though they%26rsquo;re both largely the same tune, I%26rsquo;m singling out Uncharted 2%26rsquo;s because it%26rsquo;s a just a tad more subdued than "Nate%26rsquo;s Theme 1.0." A lot of game composers get a hold of an actual orchestra and just go apeshit with blaring trumpets and bass drums, as if everyminor crescendo moment were worhty of a Hans Zimmer March into Mordor. Yet, there%26rsquo;s evident restraint throughout both Uncharted%26rsquo;s soundtracks, most noticeably in "Nate%26rsquo;s Theme 2.0."

More interestingly for nerds like me, Uncharted composer Greg Edmonson also scored Firefly! If you don%26rsquo;t think that%26rsquo;s important, know this: Naughty Dog used some of the cuts from Joss Whedon%26rsquo;s late sci-fi western as a temporary score while developing the Uncharted and just said, %26ldquo;Screw it! Let%26rsquo;s hire this guy.%26rdquo; Don%26rsquo;t know about you, but I love it when two of my favorite things in the universe come together for any reason. Oh, and since I forgotto make with the funny in this article, here ya go:
