Re: Do you consider non-superhero video game character "superhero"?

I don't really consider characters to be superheros or not, what I would consider instead is whether something has a comic book style or narrative or aesthetic. Some things do, some things don't. For example a character in Conan Exiles has comic book vibes, a character in Mount and Blade: Bannerlord...

The problem which all these projects have is that unless you've got Tom Hardy, nobody gives a shit about a Spider-Man movie without Spider-Man.
