The Game Guy
What’s it like to be a stranger in a strange land; to be in a place where both culture and nature are working toward your demise? The “Far Cry” series has always attempted to shed light on this question. It’s one of the rare series that is able to take an earthly environment and make it seem otherworldly.
Ajay is a young American who travels to fulfill his mother’s final wish. She wished for her ashes to be laid to rest in her home country of Kyrat, a fictional mountain country in the Himalayas. What begins as a routine trip to a foreign land quickly spirals out of control, and Ajay finds himself on the front lines of a brutal civil war. It’s the rebels versus Pagan Min, a ruthless dictator who keeps the poor oppressed and kills anyone who opposes him.
Upon arriving in Kyrat, Ajay learns of a bond between himself and Min. Min and Ajay’s mother have a history; one that Ajay will learn more of as the story in Kyrat unfolds.
