Game Evaluations Edit
Killed by: Shinya Motomura
Collected Weapons: Camouflage Clothing (issued weapon, to Peri Barclay)
Allies: Max didn't have any true allies, although he was on friendly terms with Peri Barclay until Umi ordered him out of the warehouse.
Mid-Game Evaluation: Max began his game at the ravine, too far away to catch a glimpse of the group of Fred Hughes, Glenn Hughes, Heather Pendergast, and company. Instead, Max hid in the bushes, contemplating his current situation. Many people saw this game as a death trap -- an atrocity. Not Max McNeal, though. To Max, this was his chance for fame, his acting opportunity come alive. Max decided he would play the game, not to escape, but to attain the fame he'd always dreamt of. That decision made, Max was off to the warehouse in search of his first victims. Needless to say, he wasn't expecting what he'd find when he got there...
At the warehouse, Max ran up to the doors, pleading with whoever might have been inside to let him in. He was greeted by the end of Peri Barclay's gun, and in an effort to formulate a sort of alliance and infiltrate the warehouse, Max complied with Peri's orders to drop his daypack and get on the ground. Peri was pleased to find him compliant, but Umi Martin, who had also appeared at the door, had other ideas. Max's plans were foiled when the girl ordered him to leave. Max quickly got the picture and was off, now bagless on top of everything else.
He quickly found himself back at the ravine where he'd originally started the game. This time, however, someone else had occupied the ravine -- Cody Jenson. Cody was only interested in Max's weapon, which proved fruitless on his part, as Peri had laid claim to it earlier. Cody wasn't ready to call it a day yet, however, and he attacked Max. The battle quickly threatened to turn three-way at the appearance of Shinya Motomura, but the altercation that followed left Max out of the equation. After getting shot, Cody fled, leaving Max alone with Shinya. Despite his better judgment, Max's desire to play to the cameras overwhelmed his logic and he charged at Shinya. Shinya retaliated by firing at the boy, which caused Max to stumble backward into the ravine and fall to his own untimely demise.
Post-Game Evaluation: Well, he had the right idea anyway, just the wrong weapon. I'm willing to bet that if Mr. McNeal had been equipped with something other than camouflage, he would've been a contender in this little game, and quite frankly, we needed more. Problem with Max was, it's one thing to want to become famous and play to the cameras, Lord knows it boosts our ratings. It's another thing to make such a stupid move purely to show off, but hey, I'm sure the audience enjoyed watching Max's fall from glory. He can take solace in the fact that his death was good for the ratings.
Memorable Quotes: "Well, hello people of America, and hello evil terrorist organization. I guess I must really thank you for this opportunity to... express myself and become famous. So thank you. Now I just want to make sure you all know my name, I am Max McNeal. I have no bag, and right now am somewhat of an underdog. I will fight my way to fame, and I'll make sure you are all here for the ride. So for now...goodbye." - Max plays to the cameras at the ravine
