I remember watching the reveal trailer of Far Cry 4 with my mouth draped open. Not because of how beautiful the game looked or because I was so blown away by this feature or that. Mostly it was due to how absolutely psychotic our antagonist Pagan Min seemed to be. Just watching him take a small blade to the neck of his own solider (and then proceeding to have a completely calm conversion while covered in blood) was enough to both shock and capture my curiosity at the same time. This guy is, if nothing else, an interesting character.

Delsin Rowe in inFAMOUS: Second Son
It’s easy to feel a kinship to a character like Delsin Rowe, as you’re not just a passive observer who’s button-mashing their way through his exploits. You not only harness the very environment around him (using Delsin as a conductor of sorts), but the choices you make directly affect his path and can weigh on your conscience at times. Sometimes I’d wonder if I made the right call or whether I'd make the same decisions if I did it over again. But hey, that’s the fun of Infamous Second Son, right?
