by: Kyle Orr

We’re at a point in this generation where several companies are trying to reboot once popular franchises. Most of the time this also means that the main character needs a second look.

Call me crazy but I liked Sam Lake's face for Max Payne, it was so freaking unconventional and unique to the character. I wasn't very fond of the "generic handsome white guy" look they went with for the second game.

Why do they assume that when a game gets popular with a white protagonist he has to be "generically handsome"? (well, except for GTA games)
