This may be shucked off, but it's been bugging me.

What exactly would Mac have gone through to make his childhood the worst of the boarders? There have been a few hints dropped here and there, like maybe he had an abusive parent (ie- the fact he can make himself drop out of the radar).

So, any theories on this?

He saw what his voice actor was gonna be like on SSX On Tour. :heh

Seriously, that part always made me wonder. Seemed like an unnecessary piece of drama for the "generic hero" character. :yes

xD Was he really that bad in On Tour? I wouldn't know, since I haven't played it.

I guess Mac could be considered your general 'hero' type dude. Never thought of it that way- but, yeah, he pretty much appeals to the a huge portion of the targeted audience... save for that tidbit of bad childhood.

Peeves me off, though. I mean, he had to have had it worse than, say, JP- since JP just had parents who didn't really care.

Or... maybe he had good parents but a sucky surrounding?

I'm trying to get this all squared off for a potential fic.

I think a fic about this would totally rock. :yes

At this point I'd say you could make it up. It's one area of Mac's life they've never really explained. The entire premise was dropped after the first SSX, I'd totally dig seeing someone's take on it. :yes

Let's take this stuff into consideration.

- He has a ghetto voice.
- He is always shy and in the corner.
- He makes hip-hop music.


From what I gather from these factors and steretypes surrounding them, he is probably from the ghetto. Probably father-less, and had a sucky childhood just because the ghetto is... the ghetto. Listen to NWA and you'll know why his life sucked.

Hey, hey, good thoughts, Tokushu.

I figured he wans't just being a poser and pretending to be ghetto.

What's NWA?

Marty was the child everyone loved. Everyone paid attention to him and bought him things and all that stuff...while Mac huddled in a corner and cried and spun turntables and taught himself eponics. Poor kid. :cry
