I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing through inFamous and being the hero. But all those pleas for help… so many civilian casualties… all crying out for a hero. To be perfectly honest it got a bit too much at times and I had to get away from it all. Yet to get maximum-strength superpowers, the game forces you to either be worthy of a halo, or otherwise be downright evil. There are no shades of grey.
So as I’d already played through the game once as a hero, it didn’t really sit well with me playing through again being evil just for the sake of it, it seemed. I’d like a sequel for this franchise to be a bit more morally ambiguous. Give me shades of grey. Something substantial that I can really sink my teeth into. Though I won’t deny, the dynamite combination of great controls and gameplay, and the immersive comic book storytelling has probably affected me more than I’ve realised. Fantastic game.
