Nilin
Posted by Articles [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 July 2013, 12:32 pm

I do not regret spending $60 on Remember Me. I enjoyed the combat, puzzles and world design enough that I look forward to diving in a second time. I also do not regret supporting Dontnod, the game's development studio, which believed a female protagonist of color could carry a game. I want to see more videogame publishers going against what is considered "conventional" business wisdom, instead trusting that the player will be interested in playing more than a generic white male.

The fight to keep Nilin as a woman turned into a widely circulated news story. The developers themselves stated "she had to be a woman" as it fit the story they were looking to tell.

Unfortunately, while I find Dontnod's endeavor quite noble, they have still failed to create the strong female protagonist I had hoped for.

Caution: This article will contain some minor and vague story spoilers for Remember Me. If you wish to go into the game blind, be warned that this will spoil some of the content for you.
