I know is to early to wish a sequel but who you would like to play as protagonist if Obsidian were planning a sequel?

Preferably a new guy.

And then woven around the AP1 story, so you might face consequences of stuff that happened there, or even view things from a different side... :)

None of the above. I'd rather they did a prequel to AP where you play as a younger Marburg through his Deus Vault operation in Pakistan and go from there.

I'd not mind a game focused around Sis.

EDIT: Or SIE, that would be fun too.

I'd like to play as Mike again if Obsidian could do it in a way that felt appropriate. Otherwise someone new.

A new guy, because while Mike's awesome, i'd like to further the Deus Ex connections and make Mike an NPC you ran into down the line. Better yet, your handler :D

how about a new guy who you play for 1/3 the game. Then he gets killed and you take control of Mike Thorton.

AP2 should also have a party system or something (like choose an ally to acompany you). So Heck can serve as backup

No. Just no. We don't want Modern Warfare 3: The RPG. >_<

Out of interest, would the one we didn't control be potential nookie?

why do people always do that 0.o? Give credit for an innovation to the one who made it famous. MW was not the first where the protagonist died then switched to a new one or an older one. GOW was not the maker of QTEs, and Total Annihilation > Starcraft (no offense South Korea)

I don't think he was giving credit for the idea to Infinity Ward, mearly using a well known example so that more people can relate.

well by give credit I mean when people say 1 game is copying another because of a mechanic that wasn't even invented by that certain game.

Like how people said games w/ QTEs are copying god of war(that still makes my blood boil)

New guy (or possibly a girl, and Thorton would be the Mina of AP2 o:)), maybe sent by the new AP (or just by PC Darcy) to track down Thorton. Then you meet up with him, he tells you about a big conspiracy and becomes your handler.

ANYTHING but the *amnesia, you're lvl 1 again* crap again.

I'd like to play Mike again, he surpassed my expectations by far. He's awesome.

Plus, the ending of AP just seems like it could set up a really interesting situation for a sequel. I'd like to follow through on that, playing as Mike.

As much as I love Mike, I'm going to have to say a new character -- so long as they can be of either gender.

Though my true preference would be for Obsidian to take the Saints Row II route, and allow for Mike to have (retroactively) been female all along (introducing MICHAELA "MIKE" THORTON). Because, sure, I'd love to continue his story... but I think as long as Obsidian stick to a fixed-gender protagonist in this kind of RPG they're shooting themselves in the foot.

I thought to add Marburg but as you said would be a prequel; that is why i didn't add Omen Deng , but i think Marburg don't work as a spy , he's a ruthless assassin that don't care a bit save the world.

Mike and his love interest go into hiding in India. But an assassin is after them, and in an attempt to kill Mike, his love interest is killed instead. Mike survives, and a new quest to find the assassin, and find out why he was sent after him, sets the plot off!

Wait... that sounded familiar...

None of the characters from the original AP (except Mike) wouldn't work. Why? Because they already have a moral plan. Heck is crazy, it wouldn't make sense if he responds professionally. Same for Sie. Sis is a mute, so that throws the dialogue system out of the window. (Also, I f*cking hate mute protagonists. *looking at majority of FPS games*).

They definitely should keep Thorton as the protagonist.

No. Just no. Saints Row 2 is a wacky game and doesn't give a sh*t about the plot. AP is serious game and turning Mike into a tranny would be dumb.
