TTG deserves respect for building an emotional and dramatic story around an Afro American main character. In the gaming industry the PC is usually white and very stereotypical. Good job in presenting a great story with interesting characters of different origins.
Here are my thoughts about the PC in season 2:
- I think I've read somewhere that no character from 400 days will actually be a main character in Season 2. I personally wouldn't mind seeing Sheel as the main character in the second Season. I liked playing her.
- Sure, in the "horror/action/survival" genre there might be more male gamers and they might prefer male characters, but I would like to experience the second season out of the view of a female character. You know, with feelings and stuff.
- I think this would open new interesting topics in the post apocalyptic environment. For example: are women becoming something like a good/posession for groups because of the "rule of the strongest"? Are they seen as valuable because of their ability to get children to repopulate the world? Are they being held as slaves to forfill certain desires?
- Making the player experience such issues with a female PC might be quite intense.
