Cole was forced to be in the hospital because of an accident that gave him the ability to control electricity. Just like me, I was forced to be in hospital doing chemotherapy treatment because I had knee cancer as a teenager.
I connected to the more human-side of Cole. For example, we were both forced to be in the hospital, deal with our burdens and overcame adversities that waited for us in the future.
I also felt I knew what Cole was going through when electrical superpowers were forced upon him, because I was forced with having knee cancer twice during my teen years.
The game helped me make a decision: to think positive and do something to help myself; or stay in a dark and depressing place because I didn’t have control of my situation.
The inFAMOUS franchise showed me that what ever happened to me in the past cannot be changed, but I have the choice to do something about my future.
The game gave me everything I have been looking for ever since my right leg got amputated at 17 years old. I finally found somebody I could relate to with Cole’s inspirational story.
