It’s safe to say that the days of always being the ‘good guy’ in video-games is over. Every other title has you playing as a scumbag that you’d want locked up if they existed in the real world.
For the uninitiated, here’s a quick rundown of what Payday is. Basically, it’s a 4 player co-op shooter where you carry out different heists. Rob a bank, steal some of this, nick some of that; you get the picture. It boils down to working as a team, controlling hostages and shooting it out with the law if and when they turn up. Many likened it to Left 4 Dead, but with cops and robbers, and that’s not a bad summary. One that flatters Payday, and rightly so.
