Hard4Games: Silent Protagonists & You

"So I was bored the other night and installed another game I snagged from the Steam winter-sales that I haven’t touched yet: Metro 2033. I won’t talk about the game itself, but rather something that made me ponder while I was playing. The game’s atmosphere, itself, was rich and thick with sweat-inducing dread, yet I kept dropping out of my immersion … and then I realized why—the main character is a silent protagonist. After I was done playing the game for the night, I thought about silent protagonists, and I just have to get this off my chest—I don’t understand the point of silent protagonists in games, especially if immersion is a high-priority."
