Hitman Absolution originally started with 47 as “a filthy homeless guy with a three-legged dog”

Leon: I would have loved to have seen this version of Absolution: according to IO the game very nearly had a completely different story that saw 47 starting the game as a hobo with dog. And possibly a shotgun. (Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sam Fisher, Max Payne and almost 47.

They should make a short based off of that! It would be EPIC!

So in other words they were going to take Agent 47 down the Sam Fischer route.

Ok, glad that didn't happen, but the more I see and hear about this game, the more it looks like it's going to jump the shark.

I don't know exactly how yet, but if ideas like were being seriously considered, then that's cause for concern.

Kinda reminds me of Person of Interest's opening ep.

Yeah it does. It's a pretty good show though. I usually can't stand crime dramas anymore, but that one is a bit different for some reason. But anyway I've never played a Hitman game before and this one looks like it's gonna be really good.

Its probably cause of the dynamic between Harold and John. Eccentric genius goodie two shoes and bad ass ex-spy working together, now that's originality IMO :)

This is clearly from a time when developers wanted to make really original stuff haha

As if agent 47 would let that happen.

Thank goodness they went with classic hitman instead of trying to reinvent the character.
