Making an interesting protagonist is something Remedy Studios can do. There is no denying the success of Max Payne. From a gaming perspective, Max Payne changed the way third person shooters work. Everything from Matrix-style "bullet time" mechanic to its gritty film noir setting made Max Payne a game people still talk about today, making its influence so great Mr. Payne has now even made it to the silver-screen. Already being a bad-boy, renegade cop who knows his way around guns and, quite literally bullets, he's a character who'll give you action from the word "Go".
