Maybe Watch Dogs' Protagonist Isn't Actually The Good Guy | Kotaku

Kotaku: "In the open world game Watch Dogs, the protagonist and super hacker Aiden Pierce can indulge me: he sees all this stuff at a glance while roaming Chicago. More than that, I can see a percentage that denotes the likelihood that someone will commit a crime. If that information gives you a Minority Report vibe, you're on the money: Watch Dogs gives you a person's stats in the hopes that it will help you prevent crimes (Watch Dogs: get it?)."

The story is too old to be commented.

Given that he runs from the cops, and messed up police cars.... I never thought of him as protagonist. And since he helped people out, did not identify him as an antagonist. He would just put me in the mind of Cole from Infamous.

That or the The Punisher.

Protagonist/antagonist are narrative roles. They have nothing to do with morality. You're confusing them with "hero" and "villain."

The protagonist is the character through whom we experience the story. An antagonist is a character in opposition to the protagonist.

Therefore, in games, the player character is ALWAYS the protagonist.

Morality story...that's a lot of power to have and the story only keeps us as the good guy.

I've also found it weird that Heros kill the most people!!!

Only team America can get away with that.

Of cource he is the good guy-just because he kills cops doesnt make him a bad man, sure others made him look like a bad guy but these people hurt his loved ones and he is simply want to put an end to this bastards so they wont do anything bad again=he is a hero

I hope you don't really mean that. Lol.

'Good' people don't kill police officers. It'd be more understandable if these were corrupt cops or something but for all we know they're just normal every-day police officers doing their job, responding to a call. How is killing coppers to avoid being caught not result in being a 'bad man'?
