How the Seattle riots influenced Infamous: Second Son | GRTV interview

GRTV talked to game director Nate Fox about Infamous: Second Son, the new main character and the decision to let Cole die as well as the impact the 1999 Seattle had on the game:

"Being involved in those riots [protests of the WTO ministerial conference, 1999] in Seattle. Actually being there and getting teargassed changed my opinion a lot about what it means to be safe in a city," said Nate Fox. "And also I would see people inside a cluster of the town where there were no police and some folks would be kicking in windows and rioting and that the everyday person would be giving out food or water to help wash your eyes out of the gas. Makes you think that society is really good and kind, but that it's a fragile thing. So we kind of have a responsibility to reinvent it and trust in other people's kind of inherent goodness." (inFamous: Second Son, Nate Fox, PS4)
