I started this topic because I wanted to allow members to share their story on how they approached to the Hitman series, and how it influenced their childhood or youth. Has it affected your immagination, or your perception of things?
Feel free to speak of whatever you like, from atmosphere to soundtracks, or even real experiences. Everything you feel suggestive about the series.
Update | I’ll tell my experience:
I firstly bought Blood Money from a bootleg’s shop when I was 7 years old. I remember scrolling his catalogue, searching for the most intriguing cover (without knowing anything of the game). I was catched by it because I found the cover to be very elegant and mature-looking, the type of game an adult would have played: what I remember the most is the black background with red and gold logo, this austere-looking man in a really dapper suit, wielding a wire, really arcane and fascinating. Me and my older brother used to watch my father play it in our new house every Saturday evening, after eating a pizza. I remember the day when he and his friend stood up right after Requiem’s credits, thinking the game was over. I was now allowed to play the game. Some years later (after I had played Contracts), I was curious the see how 47’s altar was lowered into the crematorium again. I was getting bored, so I randomly pressed every key in my controller, and I was shocked when 47 suddenly woke up from the dead. I screamed out of joy, and was able to complete the very last mission.
