No offence to SM players at all, but I start to get annoyed that Blood Ravens are always in the spotlight or other SM chapter (like in "Space Marine" the Ultramarines). I hoped a different campaign with the Chaos or other faction instead of the SM :/
I bet that CSM could make an impressive story-line too -.-"
At least it would be more interesting than the Mighty Super-Justice League that the SM always do xD A bit boring after a time
Alright, let's take a look at it.
How many of those are there that are about heroes fighting to save civilians from death or suffering?
How many COMICS in general have been about Villains?
A Fuckload LESS, I can guarantee.
And they'd less successful too.
Ultimately people are good, and they don't really WANT to see the graphic maiming of innocent people.
Most of the time, it's fun occasionally.
But it makes a much more emotionally involving story if the hero is a good guy, because it doesn't make you feel bad to relate to them.
Whereas when the main character is an evil bastard (Overlord, for example), there is a strong tendency to NOT become involved with the character, and simply have fun maiming some poor peasants.
Games are generally more interesting if you can relate to the character you play.
Think about movies.
Do you enjoy a movie that just involves mindless slaughter of innocent people?
Probably, but not in the right way.
