Fan-Made Max Payne 3 GIFs (Found at NeoGAF)

Posted on April 3 2012, 4:58pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Hats off to the group of Max Payne fans over at NeoGAF who've been busy at work creating these action-oriented animated GIFs culled from shots taken from the Max Payne 3 video content released to date.
While of course a bit choppy as animated GIFs tend to be, they're a nice little distillation of some short-burst, explosive moments and details you may have missed. Here's just a few.

The pistol whip is another close quarters melee strike, setting up the kill. (Uploaded by JaseC.)

Kicking an enemy is just one of a few melee attacks, and is mapped to the shoot button so you have control during the finishing shot. (Uploaded by Social Club's own keltickennedy.)

Reloading while holding two weapons is a natural animation for Max, as an empty magazine falls the ground. (Uploaded by Natty1.)

Seamless transitions from cutscenes to gameplay builds up tension, as you never know when the cutscene will end and the action will begin... (Uploaded by Sethos.)

If you've seen (or made) any other great ones, drop a link in Comments.

      Dear Rockstar,

      Is there a chance you can release all Max Payne games on a single disc for the PS3? I'd gladly pray a premium price for that kind of version.
      I can't and wont be playing this as I haven't played the sequels you see. It's a quirk of mine. I have to have them all on one platform. That, or rename Max Payne 3 to just Max Payne so I can consider this a standalone title.

      Yours Truly,

          @emadew547 All we can tell you at this point is that it's a series of game-inspired original art prints that depict some of Max Payne’s inner demons and vices, we hope you'll like them

              Ok Rockstar you've won me over MP3 looks absolutely amazing! i remember Kane and Lynch had the cutscene straight to gameplay, but from cutscene to full action gameplay sounds intense.

                  @blacklobby A lot of what you'll see in São Paulo in Max Payne 3 was inspired by the real city, check out our Research series for more:,261

                              I can't believe I've read that whole Wikipedia article... yeah, now ON TOPIC, will you guys do something like that in Max Payne 3? Like, get the name of a famous place and kind of make a parody of that? AND I was recently reading the Max Payne 3 Official Website to see what were you basing the game in and I realised you missed something really important: Back here in Brazil, we used to have a brazilian show in Fox Channelcalled "9mm São Paulo" (mm=milimetros), that shows exacly how the crime is in São Paulo. And it's a really dark show that can be compared with Max Payne, only not that cinematic. I KNOW it's too late for you guys to base on that before and I ask you DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT THAT! Those delays are killing me! But if you ever get the curiosity of looking at it, here it is:

                     -Channel of the guy who got the whole complete serie in YouTube

                              Hope to play Max Payne 3 Soon! Cheers from São Pauloland!

                                @ABoyandHisX Yeah that fan song / music video is nicely done, we've seen that one too. Thx for sharing here.

                                @blacklobby Off topic yes - but you can learn about this history of Hollywoodland here:

                                @MayorOfViceCity We should have an update on Max Payne for mobile devices soon

                                @maxpayne12345678 Thanks for the question - be best if you can shoot that to us via and we can consider it for an upcoming Asked & Answered

                                @Sprunk95 Nice one, thank you for the support. We'd make just one request - if you can please make a note in your About info there that your page is "unofficial". We just don't want anyone being confused and thinking that's a page run by us of course.

                                  Is Max Payne for iOS and Android still being developed? It has definitely fallen off the face of the earth in terms of existence. Granted this is a little bit of topic but where is it? The Fall 2011 release has passed months ago. But I digress, keep up the great development, support, and innovation in current and upcoming titles.

                                    Cool gifs.

                                    Speaking of fanmade stuff, I found this Max Payne song in my Youtube adventures. Damn good stuff.
