The Console Game Examiner has released yet another original webcomic. This newest gaming comic offering touches on the subject of aging gaming heroes. Be sure to check out the comic here.
The process of aging beloved video game heroes is becoming common place these days. Especially in Ubisoft titles where gamers have been shown older versions of Sam Fisher and, coming up in Assassin’s Creed Revelations, a much older Ezio. On the other hand, other hit game franchises have upcoming series reboots that will reintroduce fans to a younger version of the game’s protagonist such as Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft and Devil May Cry’s Dante.
Its an interesting trend to see certain game characters evolve over the years for a change as opposed to several stars that have remained the same for several decades such as Mario, Sonic, Mega Man, and many more. Of course if such beloved characters were ever changed it would cause outcries from their fans as these characters are more icons than anything.
