"Look at the “Beast of America” trailer that released. The song, by Nico Vega, helps outline the big bad world, with a grizzled individual who’s lost his allegiance, viewing the symbol as one of oppression rather than freedom, embarking on a simple mission that becomes more complicated. The cover itself caters to that ideal – of a man on a mission. A man who’s sacrificed his ideals. Yes, he’s faceless in the game but so was Gordan Freeman. Did that stop Valve from trying to imbue as much character as they could into him? Or even from featuring him on the box?"
