I can't be the only one, but playing through the game I just don't see how people got onboard with his character at all. From the opening of killing Jonny so horrifically, to the crazy incongruous torture scene, to the human stew, to the fucking stupid Patricia stuff, to taking over Wade's cousin's place and butchering both him and his girlfriend on a whim, I really don't get why/how people like him.
Outside of pure escapism and laughing at how completely batshit he is, what would you say is his appeal? I never got on board with anything, and either I missed something or I never got any explanation for his character outside of a jokey expositional scene where he talks about a troubled childhood, but the delivery was as if he was almost making it up?
I can't help but think that Rockstar wanted to make the most reprehenisible playable character in a game like this, just to see if people would defend him in any way based on the most threadbare justification.
What do you guys think?
