I would posit that, Monkey from Ninja Theory's game Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is/was Chinese. In the game without a doubt you PLAY as Monkey, so if we acknowledge that 'basis' of the root story comes from the Chinese epic fable- I think it fits the criteria.
There is always dumb comments on threads about how their left field choice "counts" but this one takes the cake. Congrats.
I’m pretty price sensitive. I’m usually a year or more late on most games, tho these days, most games hit $20-30 by Black Friday so I’ll get in on a handful of the hottest games of the year in the same year.
It has nothing to do w the $70 thing. Idk if returnal justifies that price but a lot of the longer games I’ve played, if they were $70, I think they can easily be justified. I’m just interested in enough games and my budget is such that, I need to stretch my dollars.
