"No Story. Just Gameplay." The USP of consoles.

So the "Gameplay is King" mantra is now consolized? /facepalm

Verno, when it has no relation to the theme of the character, yes it's a stupid idea. Is it a stupid idea for a completely different character? No. It doesn't belong with Max Payne.

Gotta agree with Krovven here... Especially because Flatline tries to root his idea in noir but the protagonist going "full dark/demon" is not noir. You can have an anti-hero, a corrupted person, but there is no good -> evil arc just a constant gray.

Noir is often about futility and MP3 pulled that off quite well.

I think a lot of people are misremembering MP1/2 or didn't understand it. This idea that Max achieved something, or that he wasn't spouting off "emo bullshit" is just wrong. You literally have to navigate his nightmares... come on.
