I agree, if a game protagonist is absurdly muscular I pretty much instantly lose interest.Lilani said:Marcus Fenix looks too...lumpy. Always avoided Gears of War because of that.
I can see your point, but I disagree. The difference to me is that, as far as I am concerned, my character in a game is a digital representation of myself. I like to play as characters I can relate strongly with, and recently that means I am only playing games where my character is fully customisable. I can see the appeal of a good story about an interesting character, but for me unless the character is me I tend to lose interest.aguspal said:No, and I honestly have quite a hard time to belive that some people actually do this...
But, everyone has weird quirks so I guess its fair enough.
There have been exceptions to this rule recently. For example last year I replayed Oblivion as a female, Dark Elf, Vampire former prostitute for a spot of role-play, but this is the exception rather than the rule.
I agree. That is another reason I can't stand Manky Fenix, he's so depressed and angry all the time that I have no sympathy for his plight. If people like him are all that's left then I support the lizard men. Hurry up and wipe out the miserable pricks.Chester Rabbit said:Kratos God Of War 3 - I cannot support this character. Oh god is he just...the worst most selfish least heroic most terribly written character I have ever come across in a video game. And the idea that people think this is what a lot of people think a game protagonist should be ...uuugh >.<
Duke Nukem (Forever) - I was all onboard thinking, come on guys the game may not be as great as we hoped but we get to play as the Duke again. Then I saw the "I guess you're, fucked heheheh" scene and yep. Turned me off of that game like that.
