Max Payne 3: Did Rockstar steal the new character design from another game?

Max Payne's new look seems to take heavy inspiration by another video game hero - Torque from The Suffering. Max' posture and especially the clothing bear striking resemblances to the hero from Midway's 2004 horror shooter.

Did Rockstar blatantly steal the design or is this just a coincidence?

Mainly because of the orange pants and white shirt, but it's a prison outfit so it might be a coincidence.

Tourque has got hair and Sam a huge beard though, but they are very similar...

You said "Sam" and i guessed you meant Max. Then I decided that the new Sam and Max game should be Sam Fisher and Max Payne kicking the fûck out of everyone. I'd buy it...

lol, also where is the next "The Suffering" thats one of my favorite games, the story is crazy and its where i live

I figured they just stole Bruce Willis' look from Die Hard and just added a beard.

But that mistake actually reveals what others are saying here. The new Max doesn't really remind me of the old one. I'm getting more of a generic TPS action game vibe from this than any Max Payne feeling...

I think there look is very similar. Maybe Rockstar likes the clothing of Torque!:)

Protagonists in an action game look the same? Shock horror!

No but seriously, both guys are in prison clothes so thats the main reason for the similarity. As for the posture and such... what do you expect? Max Payne ain't gonna slouch just so he don't look like some guy from another game.

Max payne is working for some wealthy family in the new game. They havent mentioned anything about prison.

Maybe they break him out of prison to get him to work for them??

CobraKai3473d ago

It's a common prisoner look, I don't know if Max Payne was in prison but Sam Fisher in Double Agent also sported the orange pants look except he had a orange top with white shirt underneath. I can see developers being inspired by other characters in their own design, but straight up stealing isn't something they would commonly practice.

I thought they stole the design concept from the look of Jeff Bridges in iron man lol.
