Me neither. Funny thing is ... MP1 was a surprise hit, MP2 was a commercial failure. And suddenly MP3 was supposed to have the potential of massive mainstream sucess? Max Payne was always a typical cult hit, a dedicated niche game for a dedicated niche audience. Max Payne never was a franchise with the potential for being the next GTA or CoD.
