Max Payne on the Cover of PC Games
PC Games magazines (Jan. 1999 issue) has a feature story on PC Noir, games that take place in a dark, gritty world in which the player doesn't play a well defined good guy. Max Payne is the lead game in this feature. The feature quotes Sam Lake, lead story designer for the game: "The setting of the game is film noir all the way through...Max Payne ain't no boy scout."
