Friday Five; Notable Character Redesigns

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. We have a young Lara Croft and emo Dante coming in the near future but there is one even more recent. In honor of Max Payne 3 releasing this week and, more importantly, the new look Max is rocking, I’ve decided to take a look back at other beloved characters that have seen notable redesigns. Some have been good and some have been bad but it’s hard to criticize developers for trying something different. (Bomberman, Industry, Max Payne 3 , Metal Gear Series, PS3, Splinter Cell: Conviction, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Xbox 360)

Oh god. I see Dante fans coming here.

They may just swarm.... even though he isn't even on this list.

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)
