Holding Out For A Hero

GamingLives bemoans the lack of real, old-fashioned heroes in recent games.

"Indeed, it seems that the idea of a hero – a real hero – is one that seems to have fallen out of favour over the last few years. I mean, just have a think; can you name a heroic character off the top of your head? I don’t mean a character that just saves the day or does whatever it is that the game wants them to do, I mean a character that is actually heroic..." (Batman: Arkham City, Borderlands 2, Culture, Halo 4, Sleeping Dogs)
