Today inFAMOUS 2‘s game director hit up the PlayStation Blog with this short but effective trailer and a few interesting paragraphs describing the uncertainties behind game development, and the emotional arc Cole will go through, which they hope to pass on to the audience.
Have you ever failed at anything? Ever been dumped or fired or beat up? Ever tried your hardest and still lost? It’s sucks, right? Makes you feel hollowed out, weak. Like you don’t matter. Of course it’s exactly those moments that forge you into in a stronger person. I believe that we are defined by our failure more than our successes. Once you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and OVERCOME the thing that beat you, that’s when you really win. That’s when you’ve surpassed your past self. In inFAMOUS 2 you, help Cole get there.
Now, do I expect the game to really make me feel all that? I doubt it. But I think everyone can relate to that paragraph in one way or another, and I am damn excited to get my hands on inFAMOUS 2.
Are you with me Nation?
