The original Max Payne video game feels like some developers are bingeing on The Matrix and various John Woo movies on a weekend while taking breaks to read Raymond Chandler novels. The story was a stylish, fluid third-person shooter, spoken through graphic novels, using slow motion and bullet time intensively. Max himself was a cool, personal character, and the game became a big hit. It has developed two new games which were put on the market in 2003 and 2011 respectively and continues to be a cult favorite until this day.
He also appeared as a film adaptation in 2008, as it is in almost any successful video game.
