  • Sympathy or even empathy for Max?

    Hey guys,

    I'm not trying to sound like a weirdo or saying that the events of my life are same as Max's story, and yes I know he's not real, but do any of you guys kind of feel sympathy or even empathy when playing the Max Payne games? What I mean is I have had shall we say extremely bad luck when it comes to relationships and at times I felt like life a crashing around me and I understand, to an extent, how Max feels, if we was more than a game character. I've kinda felt like I was on a journey for "redemption" trying to pull the pieces together myself.... just obviously [SIZE="4"]not[/SIZE] with guns, killing, alcohol, or painkillers. I was just curious if anyone else kinda felt that way at times. Like I said I'm not some sort of weirdo, but when I play games I just find myself relating to characters like you would in a movie or a show. It helps to immerse in the story.

    Thanks for reading

      You should use spoiler tags, some people have not played the game yet.

          I see myself as very quiet, moody and stubborn yet equally self-aware and very thoughtful, like Max, I actually enjoy thinking about some of Max's quotes, his metaphors.

          Max is my childhood hero, absolutely LOVED the first two as a child, I see Max as a person although things go wrong he always seems in 'control' always ready? if you will? Only difference is Max has his gun, I have my martial arts

            I assume that you use your martial arts to dispatch hundreds of thugs, criminals, and mercinaries in a blood-thirsty revenge-fueled rampage aimed at taking down multiple criminal organizations? Youre just like max!
