Max Payne's Bullet Time Adds A Gritty Noir Edge To Eating E-Z Cheese

What, you thought bullet time was just for shooting? That the voice of Max Payne's wife only haunts him during times of duress?

Look, just because Rockstar didn't include it in the game doesn't mean the film noir tropes of the game don't extend into our pilled-up heroes everyday life. It's what drives him to run around shooting people in delightfully horrible shirts. Angst is a great motivator, but nothing beats a dead wife nagging you to do things in slow motion.

    Luckily I read the comments before losing 5 minutes of my life.
