Why do people refer to Nathan Drake as a 'psychopathic killer'? I don't understand it. There are so many other game characters that kill as much or even more than he does and no one says the same thing about them. I see people comment that he shows no remorse or acknowledges the deaths of the people he kills but I'm pretty sure other characters are the same. Why should Nathan Drake cry over killing people that are OBVIOUSLY trying to kill him? It's not like these people are civilians and stuff. These are mercenaries or whatchumacall it's that are paid to kill and get killed. I don't think it'll be fun to play a game where you just run away from every bad guy you find instead of shooting them and what game nowadays doesn't put you in control of a one man army kind of guy?
Some examples of dudes killin dudes that aren't crazy dudes:
Shepard: He's trying to save every race in the universe!
Ratchet: He kills a bajillion aliens. That doesn't make him crazy.
Ezio: He kills to keep the world in peace from the actual crazy people. The Templars!
Starkiller: This kid isn't crazy, he was raised as child to kill the jedi and did the only thing he knew how to do until he was betrayed by Vader and realized what he was doing.
John Marston: Everyone knows John Marston ain't a crazy! He's being forced to kill his old gang in RDR because them government peoples. He left the killing behind him only to HAVE to return to it to ensure the safety of his wife and bitch ass son.
Isaac Clarke: Troll face.
Carl Johnson: This guy kills people but not for revenge or because he's crazy. He kills because he's a gangster. If that makes sense. I don't know where to go with this character since it's been a long time that I played San Andreas and I don't remember much about the story.
Niko Bellic: The guy isn't crazy. He just wants an American life and you just so happen to get run over kids parents. That doesn't mean the guys crazy. You kill more people in GTA IV then in Uncharted and you know it. So why don't we write him off as psychopathic?
Kratos: I'm probably going to get called off for this but I don't think he's crazy. The guys just pissed the fuck off and wants revenge on the bastards who turned their back on him.
So why do people troll on Drakey-poo? At the end of the day, he's basically saving the world from some nut who wants to take over the world by selling someone some mystical object that can turn people into crazies or juice them self up to become immortal. Therefore, he's just like every other game character trying to save the world and having to mow down 100's of dudes while he's at it. I probably won't reply tonight because I don't feel like conversing with people. But still, be free to discuss!
