3 Games That Make You Feel Like A Total Badass

Impotence. No one wants to feel weak. It's true in life and in video games. You might start off as the under-dog, but that can't last for the entire game. You want to start conquering something, anything. And when you do, it feels oh so good.

Here's a short list of the games that make you feel powerful, invincible; they make you feel . . .

Badass. (Crackdown, Crysis 2, PC, PS3, Tenchu: Shadow Assassin, Xbox 360)

Terrible article.

God of War 3
Prototype
inFamous 2
Just Cause 2

Crackdown is the ONLY one on that list that made me feel even kind of cool. Even then, there is no story to motivate you to be cool.

I know Just Cause 2 had a bad story too, but blowing up entire towns and flying a commercial plane into the side of a military base...is pretty fun!

God of War? Kratos? lol, being Bad Ass insinuates being liked by people who think you ARE Bad Ass, otherwise you just come off as an arragont douchebag.

Are Firefighters and Soldiers badass? Yes. Are serial killers and convicts? no.

You don't have to be liked by others to be a badass. Also, with your line of reasoning, he (newn4gguy) likes Kratos enough to mention him, so he thinks he's a bad ass.

If someone thinks someone's a bad ass, are they not because you think they aren't? Or if you think they're a bad ass, are they not because someone else thinks they aren't?

As for serial killers and convicts not being bad asses? Ever watch mafia movies or "The Professional"? As for soldiers, it depends on where you live and who you're at war / fighting. Would you think the soldiers of your enemy are bad asses?

Great choices, newn4gguy. I especially agree with inFamous 2 and Prototype as making you feel like a badass.

I'm surprised that Crysis 2 didn't make you feel like a total badass while playing. I felt like an unstoppable killing machine in that game.

I see that story is a part of what makes you feel cool in a game, and I can completely understand that. However, at least for me, even with the lack of a good story, the gameplay itself makes me feel like a badass.
