While most video games have only let players control a single character in the past, experiencing the game’s story through the eyes of one protagonist, modern games have allowed players to control multiple characters leading to more involved gameplay and a more interesting gaming experience overall.
Such is the case of 2010’s adventure game Heavy Rain and Blizzard’s exciting shooter Overwatch, which offers players a ton of unique and diverse characters to play as. So without further ado, here follows a list of 5 video games in which you get to play multiple characters throughout the game…
1. GTA V
And playing as each character offered a quite different experience as Michael’s missions were reminiscent of those in Rockstar’s earlier Vice City game, while Franklin’s storyline took a tip or two from the great San Andreas game, and suffice to say that Trevor’s missions were some of the craziest and over the top yet seen in a GTA game… All in all, GTA V’s character switching mechanic certainly helped Rockstar’s deliver what many consider to be the best GTA game to date.
