PlayStation’s biggest makeovers – gaming characters who changed their look


Cole McGrath – InFamous 2

InFamous’ Cole MacGrath always had a couple of distinct looks, depending on whether or not you played him as electrified defender of the people or one-man┬ámeteorological┬ádisaster. But when InFamous 2 first appeared, developers Sucker Punch originally had plans to paint Cole in the style of more, ahem, traditional video game heroes (possible vision statement: Nathan Drake, but more lightning-y). The result was the above coiffed, two-necklace-wearing pretty boy, and a surge of dissatisfaction from the fans – after which Cole’s head was promptly shaved and his trademark yellow and black courier’s outfit returned to him.
