More games really should let you take a trip down the highway to Hell.
We already have plenty of games that prominently feature bikers - Full Throttle - Brutal Legend - Devil May Cry series - Left 4 Dead - Shadow the Hedgehog - Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost & Damned - Freedom Planet series - Bayonetta series - Jak & Daxter series If a developer can make a game that features bikes or bikers then cool, but it shouldn’t be a new trend just because one upcoming game is focusing on it.
I think you're confused about what "bikers" are mate. A few of those titles in your list are questionable. I laughed at a few of them. Just one for example: Brutal Legend wasn't about a biker, it was about a roadie and metal music. Devil May Cry... I think I saw a bike once? I don't remember I played it when it came out back in 2001. Plus there's a difference between "bikers" and gang members.
The ideology or characteristics of a 1%er has no value in the post apocalypse. Oh so you live by your own laws, you are outlaws. That’s nice but what good is that in a lawless world? Other than not being directly effected by the collapse of society and the economy. That’s what makes the biker a good dynamic in days gone. It’s not some ode to bikers or a representation checklist, it’s just preparation from a past life and it makes sense. If you mean bikers as some old Tim Allen stereotype in assless chaps then no thanks.
