Earlier this week I reached out to various members of the Max Payne community to take a look back on Max Payne 3 now that it has turned three years old. Today I received Kristian’s piece. Frequent visitors and old time fans might know that Kristian Brynie Hollund is PayneReactor’s founder. Kristian (also known as biXen) left PayneReactor in persuit of his career and other time consuming hobby’s. I still cherish he’s around for input from time to time. When the database goes tits up or unexplainable things happen, he’s always there to help me.
I had been working with Kristian on the site for years when we first met on the Max Payne 3 fan site trip. The moment we shook hands was truly surreal and without surprise we immediately got along. When I joined PayneReactor back in 2003 I was still very young and inexperienced with website administration. I feel honored to say, Kristian was a great mentor.
His history with the Max Payne community is far more richer than mine. And so his story is very interesting. What were his motivations to start a fan site about Max Payne? What does Max Payne mean to him? In this third guest post, he tries to explain it all.
A story about PayneReactor, Max Payne & many friends.
I’m not too big about writing about myself, but since it’s also about Max Payne and many of the friends I’ve gotten through the strange relationship with this game series I guess it’s gonna have to get done.
So…Max Payne….It’s just a game… Or three games + various ports and a semi-decent action movie. But just that though, right? No… For some of us it’s strangely quite a bit more.
