Nathan Hale would be infected. He could use human weapons as well as a few Chimeran weapons. Due to him slowly transforming into a Chimera, he is more powerful than a normal human. There's a lot of Resistance in this game already and it feels as if Hale is missing. He could rival Emmett Graves.
2. Dart Feld
Dart Feld is a classic Sony PS1 character. Many people yearn for a sequel/prequel. He is a highly requested character here on the PlayStation forum. He could rival Cloud Strife.
Wander is a from one of the best games on the PS2. Although his ip holders do not approve of his inclusion, he still deserves a spot nonetheless. He could rival Connor Kenway.
4. Gabriel Logan
Gabriel Logan is from a much important franchise of Sony history. His games were once very popular, and he deserves to be recognized. Generic human? Even if he is, he still would have a moveset unlike Drake's. he could rival Snake.
5. Jaster Rogue
Jaster Rogue is from a Level-5 Sony game. He's a space pirate with PLENTY potential for his moveset. Although he isn't from the newest Level-5 Sony ip (White Knight Chronicles), he is more interesting than Leonard from White Knight Chronicles imo. He is also from a PS2 game, and there aren't enough PS2 reps in this game imo. He could rival Kat.
6. Joel & Ellie
Naughty Dog is just amazing. These two would fight together as a duo. Rival... Idk.
(Rivalry-wise, Crash and Spyro remain)
There are more, but these are the most deserving I feel...
what do you expect when most of sony's franchises have human characters,
saying no to these guys are like, saying no to sony,
it's almost, but not on the same spectrum, of saying no to Toro as a rep...
So let's just include more generic human shooters because they are Sony and not because they will actually be different or interesting to the game?
That's like let's ruin the game for the sake of glorifying franchises instead of making a fun game. Emmett though generic has at least a good "build & battle" system, otherwise if he was jsut using his guns again it would be a terrible choice to include him. The only reason is that we hope his build and battle will bring something new to the table or at the very least not be a generic gun slinger.
I don't see why people have problem with 3rd party characters if they can really be fun for the game and that it HAS to be a sony character even if that character is boring as hell to include in this game. They might be interesting in their own games no denying that but adding more characters to this game should be based on quality to the game not glory to the franchises.
