This weekend’s discussion is focused squarely on those characters that make the game for us as players. Be it starring hero, black-hearted villain or goofball background second-stringer; these are the characters that make us come back for more.
There’s no shortage of memorable characters in gaming history. Whether you’re talking classic stars like Mario and Link or current heroes like Ezio, the Master Chief, and Kratos- they’ve all made for some fun times and some epic moments of play across some of the biggest games of all time.
Gaming is also home to some of the coolest baddies to ever corrupt an entertainment medium though. A good villain can make any experience all that much better and can actually become just as much a fan favorite (maybe even more so) than the hero.The bottom line is that we all have our favorite characters to play as, against, or side-by-side with.
And this week’s Weekly Discussion is all about them- the guys and gals that make games so engaging and captivating for all of us, the players. So the question, very simply, is this: who’s your favorite videogame character?
