Hey guys, welcome to our final Fiction Fashion Friday post. Today for this ultimate edition we’re going to do something a little different – we’re listing our Top Five awesome games that let you play as a trench coat wearing hero! It’s always fun to play games that let you wear an awesome trench coat you love, whether it be Dante or Denton. In no particular order, here’s the list!
Of course Devil May Cry gets another FicFashFri mention! You play as Dante, a half-demon bounty hunter, slaying demons in a very stylish fashion! The game has actually spawned an entire genre of hack n’ slash gaming where style, differentiation, and combos are the most important elements, including games such as Bayonetta! All four Devil May Cry games allow you to unleash your power against all things nasty and malevolent with dual handguns, shotguns, swords, gauntlets and more – all while wearing a series of awesome red trench coats!
Deus Ex is a role-playing shooter that takes place in a dystopian future, where you play JC Denton – a nanoaugmented agent working for the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO). With the combat system of a shooter and the decision and stats system of a role-playing game, you as Denton seek to unravel a web of conspiracies that threatens the world as a whole. Which side will you be on? Who can you trust? In this cyberpunk world, it’s all up to you. With a very Matrix-like style (right down to Denton’s awesome black trench coat) and fun gameplay, Deus Ex is an oldie but a goodie!
This is the sequel to the first Red Steel game, lauded for being a lot more fun than its predecessor. Its unique feature is the ability to use your Wii Remote as a sword! In the first-person game you can slash and shoot, deflect bullets with your sword, buy upgrades and take out bad guys in style! In fact, a variety of amazing coats and jackets are on display in this game. Almost makes you want to put on an AbbyShot long coat while playing, no?
While it may be optional, you can (and should!) acquire a duster in this game for having a high level of honor! Red Dead Redemption is a Western game very much in the style of Grand Theft Auto – a sandbox where you can be any kind of cowboy you want to be! With a superb story by the folks at Rockstar and the ability to be a gunslinging, duster-wearing cowboy, it’s probably the best Western game that has EVER existed!
Fallout 3 is the premiere post-apocalyptic simulator brought to you by VaultTec! Er…we mean it’s a post-apocalytpic RPG/Shooter hybrid game by Bethesda, best known for the Elder Scrolls series. In Fallout 3, by becoming a member of the Regulators (or by killing one of their men), you can acquire a cool-looking duster to travel the wastes in! Like Red Dead Redemption, this is another game where it’s optional to wear one, but you CAN! (And should! There are other long coats in the game, including one you can take from Lucas Simms with a sheriff’s badge, but the Regulator Duster makes you really feel the part!
We know there are more games out there with awesome long coat action, but these games really took the cake for us!
