This text art project was inspired by a recent reddit thread that examined how games might look from a different perspective. It was based around this image, and though I found this Skyrim idea in the comments as a follow up, I thought there was much more to be explored with the concept.
Therefore, I went and looked at my favorite games, and figured out how they might be viewed from a perspective other than the heroes. Are the leads of Portal, Mass Effect, Uncharted and more really all that heroic?
Check out the full gallery below, and feel free to add in your own in the comments. If they’re good enough, I may even add them to the list. Also, this is a visual sequel of sorts to this post, which I really loved.

In assassins creed you are a feminine looking douchebag that can kill people and get away with it by walking slowly in a crowded area.

In Demon’s Souls you are the worst knight ever. Seeing as you get killed when a skeleton looks at you funny.

In any Atari game you are…something…that does…something to other…things. but it doesn’t matter because your parents are better than you at playing anyway.
In solitaire you are a dirty man that just fondles cards just because you like to see them dance. Pervert.

I see you went with the fox news perspective for mass effect

In Megaman, your dad gives his little boy a hand cannon and a hitlist including the leaders of the latest robot coup and their human ambassador.

Oh, lemme try for my favorite games:
In Civilization V, all of the world leaders, including Ghandi, hate you for no reason, tell you this to your face once a year, and somehow act surprised when you nuke them into orbit… take that, Iroquis.
In Fallout New Vegas, you are a courier. While you think you’re a hero of the wasteland, and that “Courier” is just a code name to cover for your amnesia, not a single NPC hesitates to ask you to fetch something for them, and your only options are to do it or kill them.
In SimCity 2000, you are the malevolent dictator in a totalitarian city-state, one who can bring down tornadoes, planes, set fires, selectively demolish entire neighborhoods without compensation, end riots by demolishing the roads people are protesting on, and install maximum security prisons adjacent to elementary schools.

In Pac-Man you are a home invader who eats everything while the ghosts of the family you murdered seek revenge.

In Mass Effect you are insane, because your idea of “renegade” actions varies between being a little rude, and straight punching women.
That’s not so much a different perspective than it is a personal gripe.

In the Sims, you’re just some average person, trying to live your life, but God keeps coming along and messing with you.

In Just Cause 2 you are a foreign agent, trying to convince the population of an island nation that their leader is bad by blowing up water towers with C4.
In Red Faction: Guerilla you are someone who likes to drive through buildings just for fun.
In Halo you are a soldier who does everything the voice in your head tells you to. Sometimes you even argue with it.

In God of War your are a homicidal maniac soldier who cannot accept the fact that you killed your wife and child and blame your misdeeds on others. No matter how many you kill you can never bring them back.
In Syndicate, you force people to commit suicide, as just randomly shooting security and police officers isn’t dark enough.
In Leisure Suit Larry you are a….aww forget it.
In DOA:Beach Volleyball, you are a pervert watching a bunch of jailbait girls bounce around in skimpy bikinis

In Metro 2033 game plays you!

In L.A. Noire, you’re a busybody in a suit that loses your temper everytime someone lies to you, can’t tell if they’re actually lying without some mysterious entity from another reality telling you all the answers, and you drive as if there’s nothing around to avoid hitting, even though there are dozens of things to hit.
In Dragon Age: Origins, you don’t know your own race, status, gender, or class, but you do know that you can stop an invasion of bloodthirsty demons because you have their blood in you by killing their leader, which will also kill you unless you knock up a witch in a one-night stand.
In Silent Hill 2, you are an amnesiac, schizophrenic widower that thinks you’re killing monsters in a ghost town trying to find your dead wife who you think sent you a letter when it was just the teenage girl next door playing a trick on you, who is incidentally the reincarnated mother of an evil god that someone else wants to use to destroy the world.

In Castlevania you are a rampaging S&M fanatic on a clandestine mission to stop the inception of Twilight while showing everyone the blow-the-candle-out-with-a-whip trick.
