Originally, I only used Purna for a bunch of play-throughs because she seemed the least offensive from the character description and used guns. Then I played as Xian and enjoyed that take on the game.

After over 260 hours I tried Logan. He has boomerang which is interesting, but the character description and "drunken master" skill is very offputting to me. In fact, both the male characters seem like low lives! If this is the take on "American Men" that foreign developers have I am insulted!

So I must ask... Do any of you really like the rather devolved nature of either of the male characters? Did you, like myself, hesitate to play as one of them because of their virtual "character traits"?

As long as they (Steam and the developers) are making changes to the game, would you prefer another male character of more "average" demeanor to use as your own game "avatar"?

Or is it just me?

They are horrible, and that Texas guy somewhat acts very different, he doesn't look Texas to me, but I might seen too many stereotypical Texas movies.

And Sam B, same, he is a very very very stereotypical African American, it annoys me.

My friend plays as Sam B and he says he doesn't like him much, prefers to be a 2 metre tattooed and warpainted African tribal.

And it's funny, I'm not sure if I heard right, but they said Purna and Xin (That's her name?) would be sexy chicks, I never found anything sexy on a female character in computer games, but if people really thought of that, I'm thinking they thought bad because Purna is very ugly.

i'm assuming were talking about the main characters and not the ones you interact with in the game, I'm only on act two and maybe about half done. I just rescued Jin from the prison, I'm playing as Purna so far for her gun skills and she has the secon highest stamina, i don't think much of the other characters, good of bad, the depth of characters in games doesn't sell me on a game.

that's because there has never been a successfully-designed deep character in any game. in most games, the one you play doesn't even talk, yet somehow the NPCs seem to interact with him/her and answer questions that noone asked

specifically in Dead Island, there's nothing epic or memorable about any of them. as for people who say certain characters are sexy and they'd do them.......that's just disturbed and it's a true testament to the non-volunteered life of abstinence they're living (that like I said wasn't their choice).

like in Left 4 Dead, they say Zoey has a great ass and stuff like that. I look and I'm like "what ass?", there's nothing there.

Mario didn't even talk for the first time until 96 or 97, whenever the N64 came out.

Agreed, they are all pretty horrible, could use a few men.

i wish they had a broader of dialogue instead the few things they keep repeating, i like to leave the sound on for the atmosphere, but i hate them going "oh what is this" or "What have we got here" when you're exploring stuff for money or useable products or going "owww!" when a zombie attacks, i'm tempted to just leave the sound off altogether.

Spoiler:
sam B dies


Anyways, I personally think that there should both be male/female versions of each 'character' and the option to customize your look with new cloths and at start of the game is MISSING too i dont want to be some little ass lady which apperantly is a FIREARMS expert -.- so i took the survivor guy instead (cant remeber hes name?) :/ Something off-topic is that it lacks Modding tools think of the wonderfull things you can do with modding tools to DI and i think the zombies ( ) should get decreased in health JUST a bit personally they have way too much hp and give way too much dmg and if they decreased the HP i would be happy
