what is with all these games having us control older guys?
wishing I wasn't a 40 year old black guy
bloo bloo bloo there's some diversity in my vidja games
Irony is a maginot line drawn by the already condemned
I already controlled a father figure in The Walking Dead, wishing I wasn't a 40 year old black guy, now I have to control a 30 something year old guarding a 14 year old girl in the upcoming game
Before you love the walkin dead now you bash it shut up and the last of us is a ps3 exclusive

How many mods does it take to screw in a light bulb? "the lightbulb is technically not violating the TOS so we're powerless to do anything about it"

How is this diversity? when every other video game have you control an older man. Just because he's black doesn't change anything

How old are you really?

Because females don't sell and gamers don't like kids.
So long live the bald/brown haired adult male (preferably white).

So 20s is okay but 30s is not. Some of us are not 20 years old, we want to control someone closer to our own age. I'm about to turn 26 and I fully support 30-40 year old protagonists. In GTAV, Michael is pushing 50 and is also the dude I'll be playing the most when given the chance.

IMO the reason a lot of protagonists are in their 30's+ is because people over the age of 25 have fully developed brains, are more likely to have had a wider range of experiences and thus able to cope better with certain situations than younger people.
Marcus Fenix isn't a 14 year old kid for a reason.
If Harry from Silent Hill was 18, chances are his daughter wouldn't have wandered off too far.
If the characters in Mass Effect were 12 you wouldn't have the romance stories.
But I'm all for a 9 year old protagonist in the next GTA installment. I'd like to know how a 9 year old on cocaine and carrying a gun behaves.
Signature pending mod approval.
Play MGS4. They have young characters.
