No More Heroes is more punk than the Pistols

We've played it. It's anarchy.

Travis Touchdown just does not care

A major factor in defining any game’s personality is its protagonist. In Travis Touchdown, No More Heroes has a killer statement of intent.

Travis is not heroic, but importantly he’s also far from your glowering vengeful videogame anti-hero too. Simply put, Travis is just some slacker with time on his hands and an urge to make a nuisance of himself. No deep back story, no mission to save the world, and no reason whatsoever to risk his life wasting hundreds of trained killers other than that it sounds like it could be fun, it’s better than getting a real job, and it’d be cool to say he did it. When the rest of your life revolves around watching porn, trying to get laid and playing with your cat, it’s good to have some outside interests.
