The baddies... [18 Nov 2005|01:39pm]

I'm fairly new to the whole Max Payne scene, but I'm having no trouble liking it. It's completely immersive. Just wanted to share a few observations about the baddies in both games-

1. In Max Payne, you can tell who's who, even if they're construed as bad guys- like I definitely got an attatchment to Vlad Lem after I saw him. Very awesome guy- polite, good humored, old fashioned.

2. In Max Payne 2, I found myself rooting for a lot of the baddies and cheering when Mona died. I felt really sorry for, say, Vlad- I got the impression that he's been getting the short end of the stick all his life, and by the time Max Payne 2 rolled around, he got sick and tired of it. He gets continually slaughtered by the mafia, and basically the Inner Circle treats him as an inner delivery/cleaner boy. On the other hand, Vinnie I had a mixed time feeling sorry and disgusted- he's the guy who's obvioudly regressive, and had trouble in his sex life, and mostly everybody feels sorry for him? I mean, Vlad treats him women great, and he's mostly construed as the big bad.

And Winterson- no matter how many jokes you could crack about her, there's always that twinge of guilt- she's a single mother, strong willed, and obviously cherishes her loved ones, when they treat her right.

One last thing- did anyone notice the diploma behind Vlad's desk in his office? It had the same sigil as the poster in Winterson's office- the Brooklyn School for the Blind. So how did Vlad get a diploma from there? Would it be sort of like an honorary thing, since he helped out Winterson's kid so much?

I'll post more observations later if anyone esponds to this.
