I was playing Metal Gear Solid a few weeks ago and I've seen some of the teasers for MGS5 which has a possible young Psycho Mantis in the game. I've always loved Psycho Mantis, I think he is one of gaming's best characters and I've always wondered about a game featuring gameplay as Psycho Mantis. He's a badass and I think it would be cool to play as him.

Officer Tenpenney from San Andreas. Why they've yet to let you play as a dirty cop in those games I haven't the foggiest notion. There's a goldmine of opportunity there.

i think there was an old RE game where you played as the nemesis hunting down the other memebers or something like that or was that just a fever dream

@grillbar: pretty sure the outbreak games let you play slas enemy units if your human character died. Although it was pointless because why would you want to antagonize the group you were just trying to help? Pretty sure you could play as a hunter but for sure you could play as a zombie.

I've played most of all RE games, and I never seen it. Only games I can think of where you play as bio-weapons are..

Resident Evil- Operation Raccoon City

Resident Evil 6

They have multiplayer modes where you play as a bio-weapon.

Yes. None of the older ones let you play as one. Only those two stated.

I might be the odd gamer out, but i find, usually in games i find my self picking the character i want to play based on the characters i get to interact with.

For example, in BG2 i always end up picking male, even though I would love playing female. Because I want to have the female interactions.

There's one RE character I always wish had his own game.

Hunk- He'll snap anyone's fucking neck up in an instant. He's a highly trained pure badass that will take you down with pure skillz. On top of that he is one of the luckiest RE character's outside of Jim ( from Outbreak). Hunk always succeeds in his mission, no matter the odds against him. There's a reason people call him Death.

Goddamn I just wish there was one RE game that was focus only on Hunk.

You could only (briefly) play as a zombie in Operation Raccoon City, much like the two Outbreak games. RE6 is the first to let you (attempt to) control the bigger BOW stuff.

@the_laughing_man: There is a online mod where you can be a Nemesis but that is a DLC and X-Box exclusive and he is also playable in UMVC 3

I'm pretty sure you don't actually play as Nemesis and merely have him tag along as a friendly AI.

I think you can take control of him, but I could be wrong.
