The Genius Behind Max Payne

Max Payne is a video game franchise that blew up so big it had to be turned into a movie. Imagine a man running around New York city. Finding the people who killed his family. An Ex-copped turned into a gun-slinging vigilante, on a con-quest with two dessert eagles in a New York underworld. This being the side effect of the street drug Valkyrie. This drug has took the streets by storm. The test subjects that were sent to kill his family we’re users of this drug. The person that manufactured the drug sent them in to annihilate his family. Max Payne’s wife, Michelle Payne found out entitles that helped pushed this street drug.

Max Payne’s world is a noir romantic inspired video game with dramatic elements. The game has undertones of a twisted dark society New York does not know about, that involves  a very dark life. This world spirals a man on the hunt, blowing bosses, occultist and even restaurant owners heads off. Max Payne has been face to face with contract killers. One of which is Mona Sax, only for her to turn around and fall deeply in love with him. Preventing him from being murdered.

He always is known as a person that saves the damsel in distresses. Max has been known to ruminate on his past surrounding Mona Sax. The two always meet up together, guns blazing through New York. One has an affiliation tie to no one. Mona Sax motive is strictly business. Max Payne, is a person that is all personal. His mission in this video game are personal infused with no money put into his pocket. Just vengeance for the pain he felt for the loss of his family.

I was impressed behind the cinematic story-line this game has always portrayed. The game was so successful it had became a movie. Grossing at-least 85 million world wide. The movie embraces the same noir style elements the game did. Showing Max in a world we’re Valkyrie is a drug used to enhance super-soldiers. Max answers the call of a vigilante by killing those that are involved on his discovery for who is responsible. The movie was such a success it has grossed 85 million dollars world wide. I myself enjoyed the movie a lot.

The person that went into making such a kick-a** video game is Sam Lake. We commend you Sam Lake for penning such an amazing game. It has resonated so deeply with us as an audience we wanted it as an a movie. In my opinion, the origins of Max Payne reminds you of someone like, Punisher. A marvel super-hero. Same concept of a vigilante roaming the streets in order to protect the morals that they stand for. Either way it goes. This video game will be a classic that will every one will remember.
