In his latest column for Made2Game, ex-PC Zone editor Will Porter wrestles with the conundrum of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's hero being a nice guy who indulges in wholesale slaughter
Just like every single video game character?
Yeah, but it's a bit creepy when he is charming and funny one minute and snaping some dude's neck the next.
It's all self defense, he's a nice guys but he doesn't want to die just yet.
The blogger is just nit picking. Maybe he is Lazarevich! XD "How many men have you killed...just today?" killing is different from murdering ...what a troll blogger move along folks......
So what.... Mario is the most lovable character in gaming, has made his living by crushing a kingdom of innocent turtles and goombas with his body mass alone. Kirby... one of the cutest characters in gaming, eats his enemies alive, and steals their life force away turning into them as the victim slowly dissolves in his body... You can make any character sound evil.... just move on
...stupid article, its a waste to read.
"What’s the answer then? Limit enemy shuffles from this mortal coil to five per game, and then show the hero crying in bed - pressing RT to intermittently shout ‘Why God why? I’m sorry!’ and A to start bawling uncontrollably?" ... RT?... A?... Hmm... Can't seem to find those on my Dualshock 3. :/
It's not like you're mowing down women or children in a school zone. Nathan Drake is killing seedy gangsters, hired hitmen, and whatever other cliched bad guy monkier you want to use. The kind of people that would shoot first and ask questions later. I'm sorry, but I fail to understand the writers logic.
It's a Kill or be Killed kinda game...what do you expect? A gun shooting rainbow bullets. :)
Or this little guy as a grenade. Haha.
You guys can all joke. But when I started playing and that part at the beginning as a kid.....I figured it set a more realistic tone. And the game was better for it. Then back in the present he's killing everybody. I did notice. And I shrugged it off...it's a game. But that's the point....up to the point of being a kid, the game successfully had me buying it as something more than just a great game.
I might be wrong, but isn't there a difference between killing and murdering? In Drake's case, he kills to save a life, be it his own or that of one of his friends. Murderers kill because they can, or because they enjoy it. The war vet he met was disturbed in the head, hero though he may have been. It should never feel good to end someone's life. And what's with the sudden infusion of Xbox controller buttons in the article? Makes the entire thing rather suspect...
Well, there's been lots of games which offer the player choice in how they deal with situations. With the recent releases of Metal Gear Solid HD games this emphasises the point that if you give the player the option to be sneaky and not kill anyone, reward them for it even, then it becomes more befitting of the character.
lol A or RT Kind of gives away the aurhot doesn't it??
These articles are so stupid
