This.I don't understand why people are assuming that your childhood hero option has any relation to the digital ghost of Silverhand.
The only impact I can see it having is he will comment on it and possibly treat you differently depending on your option, but I highly doubt Arasaka or Blackhand would have taken his place.
Keanu might be big star but lets face it, hes 54 year old. Sure Matrix Generation knows him well but how about the rest?This.
Keanu Reeves is too big of a star to be cast as a character who is maybe only encountered in one third of all playthroughs. If the childhood hero option in character customization determined whose digital ghost was sharing your head space, both Johnny and the other two options would be played by voice actors rather than someone from Hollywood's A-list.
You can safely bet all the Eddies in Night City that Johnny Silverhand is going to be a major character tagging along with every single version of V.
John Wick.Keanu might be big star but lets face it, hes 54 year old. Sure Matrix Generation knows him well but how about the rest?
He's arguably more famous for that than the Matrix, at least among miillenials. Go to any place on the net where people were discussing his reveal at E3 and you'll see a lot more John Wick mentions than Neo.
My Son is 20 , all though he played TW3 thru many times he had little interest in CP ( unlike me ) . Until Keanu popped up at E3 . Now he is talking / asking me heaps of questions about the game and telling me how much he loves Keanu .Keanu might be big star but lets face it, hes 54 year old. Sure Matrix Generation knows him well but how about the rest?
