For a long while there have been defined characters in video games.. whether that be the trio in Golden Axe, the Italian Plumber we all know so well, or a swashbuckling, gem loving elf. There are thousands and thousands of characters that have been created throughout the course of video game history.
Before, video games were more about what the character looked like, and less about who the character was.. Now adays, characters have in-depth stories that can help us like or relate to them. Perhaps, we admire what the character stands for, or perhaps we like how evil the character is.. Hero or Villian, a character is a character... if you must, you can name both your favourite hero/anti-hero and villian.
Also, why do you like this character? What is fascinating about this character? What kind of things did this character do to make you choose them? Maybe, how do you relate to the character? As long as you give some reason why you have chosen that character as your favourite, it doesn't matter how you go about explaining it.
Now, I am not a fan of villians, usually I enjoy being able to dispose of them in anyway possible. But if I were to like a video game villian, it'd likely be either Cryptosporidium 137 (from Destroy all Humans) or Jango Fett in the game (Bounty Hunter). Only because I've been a huge fan of Boba Fett since I was a little kid.
My favourite overall Character though.. is Wander from Shadow of the Colossus, he is a guy of few words, and many actions. One who is willing to sacrifice everything to save the girl he loves, even though he faces what would seem the most impossible of challenges.. even when it eats away at him, he does not stop, and will not stop until she is brought back.
Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with. .' )
Thanks for reading.
