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

posted by Tazzle27 on - last edited - Viewed by 373 users

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.

    Also this, just don't play it if you don't like it.

    Ico, while the girl is more likely the same age as Ico you look after and protect Yorda (the girl) throughout the entire game. Also there is no romance, it's more a friendship than anything so technically it could be a brother/sister relationship if you looked at it that way.

  • Yeah, that's what everyone's sick of. Not Joe action star and big tits Suzy that starred in 95% of all games ever made.

    In Tales of Symphonia (the first one-- I haven't played the sequel), Lloyd Irving is too young to actually have a serious romantic relationship with any of the 4 women in the party. There are bits where the person who likes Lloyd most has additional cutscenes with him, they aren't romantic to him. Sure, Collette likes Lloyd, but they're really just very good friends.

    In Secret of Mana, the boy, girl and sprite are partners in their quest. And the girl's love interest is Dyluck, not the main protagonist.

    I meant games that is based on the real world with or without supernatural events. Like...

    Tomb Raider
    The Walking Dead
    uncharted
    Red Dead Redemption
    GTA

    I hear that they don't even communicate, so how can they even develop a brother/sister relationship? Do they act like brother and sister?

  • If you ask me we need more protagonists like Wario tbh.

    How would Clementine react if Larry kissed her on the lips?
    I would like to see that



    Congrats to Telltale for playing host to someone who apparently likes to shock people with trolling posts about pedophilia fantasies and complaints about not getting to play games as kid characters.

    I have seen innocent posts advertising Ultimate Online-like communities get deleted, but you put up with this?

    As a Telltale customer, I want you to know I don't like seeing this sick crap on here. This thread of Tazzle's isn't bad in and of itself, but please watch what else he puts up.

  • @MtnPeak said: I have seen innocent posts advertising Ultimate Online-like communities get deleted, but you put up with this?

    Actually, no, I wasn't going to. Hence this thread being closed, since it seems to have derailed somewhat.
    I wonder how THAT happened. :p

    Thanks for the REPOST. Like, really, thank you so much. If you don't wish to see that crap in here, how about not fucking REPOSTING IT?!?

    I've personally closed these threads and then some. What you're doing here is nothing but attacking a community member from behind. And I don't care how justified or not this is. You_just_don't.
