I was playing through Uncharted 3 again this week and while I don't like the game it is generally considered great among a lot of people but my God it has to have one of THE most boring sections in a critically acclaimed game I've ever played and that is?.... correct! The fucking desert.
Such a sloppy section of "gameplay" with constant fade outs (white and black) which has you just pushing forward the whole time and occasionally tapping triangle.
So what sections of good games have you played?
(honorable mention for the opening to AC IV. Fantastic main game but terrible opening)
