This question has caught me a bit curious as to who everyone's favorite character(s) are, so I thought I'd see who has a certain favorite character.
This thread goes as follows. Post a picture or a link of your favorite character or characters, what game they're from, and why you like them. Just be sure there are no one-liners as to why you do.
As for my favorites, well I got plenty.
Game - Super Mario Bros.
Why - This one should be obvious. If it were not for this sole plumber, we wouldn't have the games we now take for granted. He's the one that started it all, and his latest outing shows that he's still got what it takes to define a new way to play the games we love. The RPG games he starred in gave the character a little more personality and separated him from being a stationary. Nowadays, Mario is seen as a gaming legend, continuing to try and define what a game is truly meant to be.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Game - Sonic the Hedgehog
Why - Sonic was basically a faster version of what Mario accomplished back in the day. The games he starred in contained creative platforming levels combined with an essence of speed. Nowadays however, he's seen a bit of a drought of good games lately, but he's slowly starting to make a comeback. Maybe one day we'll see a Sonic game that brings back what it truly means to be the fastest thing alive.
Game - Tales of Symphonia
Why - My list just wouldn't be complete without mentioning her, now would it? Anyways, there's plenty of reasons why I like (dare I say love?) this character. Mainly her back story is something to check out. Lets see you live your life when you wipe out half your own hometown by complete accident when you try to have a summon spirit accept you at a young age. Yeah, not so simple huh? Anyways, I guess what struck me about her is, surprisingly to some of you, not her looks but the way she acts. She tends to act clumsy, surprisingly being an assassin and all, and may trip on her own feet for no reason at all. Something about her, though, just struck a cord in me saying "Holy crap, I just love this character!".
I'll list more as my brain develops some good memories.
So, what are some of your favorites?
