what is with these games having us control older, ugly and muscular men

I already controlled a father figure in The Walking Dead, wishing I wasn't a 40 year old man, now I have to control a 30 something year old that looks like a freakin hobo guarding a 14 year old girl in the upcoming game

The Last Of US

so YET AGAIN I have to play freakin daddy in a video game, god damn it, why can't I play as a brother figure or a young adult. Jesus christ. I am sick and tired of being the daddy in video games. Not to mention that the main character is ugly! At least Lee looked ok.

God DAMN these developers don't have a clue

I am annoyed. For me it taints what otherwise looks like a damn good game.

    Because that's the story they're choosing to tell. If you don't like it, don't play it.

    and it's been told a thousand times already

  • It's a conspiracy by the games industry to get us off our butts and go raise a family. 8)

    I'd very much like to see you name those other thousand times.

    That's 4, a long way of thousands and with some questionable picks for instance if that's your opinion of the story of Enslaved then you really missed the whole point.

    my point was it's already been done before and very recently. The Walking Dead. In this new upcoming game I have to be a figure father to a younger girl. I don't want to go through that again, I've already done that with Lee and Clementine.

    I also have a problem that the main character looks like a hobo

    He just looks like he hasn't shaved, which isn't really the biggest concern in a post-apocalyptic world.

    The fact that the guy looks like he does is not new. It's been there since the very first reveal of the game. You've had plenty of time to bitch about this. Why start doing so now?

    As for the games... Dead Rising 2 and The Walking Dead I'll give you, but the others? Dishonored was about clearing your name after being framed for murdering someone, and Enslaved was about a journey between a man and a woman who come to trust and depend on one another.

    4 games - two, technically - is not a thousand. Try harder.

  • It's not as if young and stylish protagonists haven't been done to death as well. Grizzled veterans are just another trope of many.

    Name me a game that has you control a young main character that looks out for a little girl and develops a brother/sister relationship.
