Some people said that having a celebrity in a video game was shocking. Watching movies must be hell for these people. The idea of Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077, where he will embody one of the iconic characters of the table RPG, the rockerboy Johnny Silverhand, excites us a lot. But why stop there? Let's put it in other games.
Our weekend question is this: What other game could be improved by adding Keanu Reeves? Here are the answers from our team, let us know yours in the comments below.
Andy Kelly: Euro Truck Simulator 2
I want to look to the passenger seat and see Keanu sitting there, ideally wearing a mesh trucker's cap. And when I do something cool, like skilfully navigating on a large load in a country lane or skillfully doubling a caravan, I want him to turn to me and say "Woah". Otherwise, he will sit quietly, perhaps giving me occasional encouragement when my fuel is running out of fuel or the deadline for delivery is fast approaching. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is one of my favorite PC games of all time, but sharing a cab with Keanu would take it to the next level.
Malindy Hetfeld: Sekiro
Our boy Keanu was in a pretty awful movie called 47 Ronin, but the art direction was fantastic – I would take a Sekiro DLC in which I take control of Keanu to fight more samurai phantom ladies and snakes. Alternatively, since Sekiro already represents all this and more, I would take him as a partner of my team, as in the battle against Juzou the Drunkard. Instead of using it as a cannon fodder, I would fully utilize Keanu's fighting skills at the movies in a battle that has difficulties with De Software and Kingdom Hearts 3 controls so we can have a lot of crazy partners attacks.
Jarred Walton: Neuromancer
One of the books and training games of my youth was William Gibson's Neuromancer. In fact, I was playing the C-64 game before discovering the book, which was probably for the better. But I loved the original game at the time, and we need a modern version of the game and the virtual world of Gibson's book. Of course, that's probably what the Cyberpunk 2077 is at a certain level, but I want more games taking place in a dystopian future where cowboy hackers are wreaking havoc and all my computer skills could be set to profit. Maybe Keanu could just resume his role as Johnny Mnemonic, or we could have Burning Chrome or a number of other great alternatives.
Bo Moore: Enter the matrix
The answer to this question is simple. Enter the matrix. I've never played this adaptation of Matrix movies, but from what I understand, the main complaint is that you never really play as Keanu – uh, Neo. He may be in the game somewhere, but you can actually play only peripheral matrix characters like Niobe, Seraph and all the other consecutive characters whose names you have forgotten. Either way, the game would be greatly improved by adding Keanu. In fact, a few years later, it's exactly what they did with The Matrix: Path of Neo, which, according to the Matrix wiki, "used many features of Enter the Matrix, but allowed the player to play Neo's character during his adventures in the world ". series of movies. This game has been more well received and has received generally favorable reviews. "Keanu clearly made the difference.
Wes Fenlon: Thomas was alone
I was ready to jokingly answer Dragon Ball FighterZ, but there are no good photo shops of Keanu Reeves as super saiyan. It seems totally irresponsible of the Internet and I am really disappointed to have to think now of a serious answer. Thomas Was Alone was chosen, but it's a substitute for virtually any game that focuses on storytelling. Keanu has a beautiful voice, usually very calm, and I like the idea that he describes what is happening on the screen while I play. Keanu Reeves in a bastion or a transistor? Awesome. Keanu Reeves replaces the charming Brit of Thomas Was Alone? Also great! There is the additional bonus of developer Mike Bithell who is currently creating the game John Wick. I know that a Keanu voice pack is not going to happen, but I mean, it's not impossible.
Chris Livingston: The Sims 4
I know that it was Neo and John Wick and that it will soon be Johnny Silverhand, but I still think that one of the most interesting (and most convincing) roles of Keanu Reeves was that Teen Parenthood doofus who toppled Martha Plimpton and reassured Joaquin Phoenix that it is normal to masturbate. Would not you like Keanu Reeves to be Tod, wise but wise, wandering around your Sims neighborhood, attacking your fridge, watching your TV, imbuing your daughter and acting as a role model for your son? I would like.
Jody Macgregor: Johnny Mnemonic – The Interactive Action Movie
It was a 1995 JVM game with all the features of the genre. There was the acting, the rough controls, the weird editing, the men in too big suits and the women in panties too small. I know the film is not very well seen, but when I was 16, I thought it was a decision and I refuse to see it again in case I got it wrong. The game did not involve any of the film's actors, but could only have been improved by the addition of Keanu Reeves and perhaps Takeshi Kitano.
