MobyGames Classic: Max Payne community stories

Last Wednesday we added 2001's Max Payne to our growing list of video game classics, presented by MobyGames.com.

Comic book-style cut-scenes and some appropriately melodramatic voice-over narration blended with the revenge-themed story to create an experience brimming with as much style as gunplay.
