I had to hear it from Wil Wheaton.

Talking to the creators of open-world hit game Uncharted on his show,Conversations with Creators, the geek legend praised a feature that helps you guide protagonist Nathan Drake around its vast, sprawling environment: “And I love there’s that subtle yellow path,” he said. “I never got lost!”
