Howdy folks. Since we’re all taking a break from the chaotic mess that is life, I thought I’d pose a random silly question to the community to keep our brains active and our spirits entertained. Over the last few decades, the blind have had the opportunity to enjoy a great many games that were either catered to their needs or just happened to be accessible. Unless you’ve been reading your life away, you’ve surely come across at least one or two interesting titles and, hopefully, fallen in love with a character or two that were part of a game. I thought it would be fun if we all shared a couple of our favourites and provided reasons why we just can’t help liking them so much. As for where they might have come from, it doesn’t really matter, as long as you yourself have been able to experience what the game they’re from is like. To start off this discussion, I’ll try to list some of my top picks. First and foremost, I definitely have a soft spot for Elise Maybelle from “Timecrest”. For those not familiar with this character, she is a mysterious, powerful necromancer who has lived most of her life shrouded in darkness and has the ability to talk to certain few dead people. What I really like about her is that, despite being a seemingly cold and aloof young lady, she turns out to be very appreciative of the main character’s friendliness and honesty and does her utmost to help anyone who does not shun her because of her strange appearance and powers. Secondly, I think that Sessile, the banker from Grizzly Gulch, is adorable, just for that “Yep, so long” line”, but also because he adds so much to the whole western feel of this 2000 classic. Lastly, I know he’s not in the least important to the story, but I have to mention the security guard from Alt Frequencies. He makes a (very brief) appearance when the protagonist visits the fancy club and I think that, regardless of length, he totally nails it. I could go on, but I am going to stop there for the sake of not putting anyone to sleep with my lengthy posts. Do reply with your own favourite characters below. Keep well and keep sane. Cheers, TT
One of my favourite charactors is Simeon from A Hero's Call, a thief (yet has good principles) young man that's very cheerful. I love his jokes and sarcastic ways in responding to others, this funny young man maintains his sarcastic personality even in the midst of the difficult circumstances he and his fellow heroes are facing through out their adventures to defeat evil and enemies. Also, I liked king Rusuasu from Shadow Rine for his goodness and the strength of his personality, and when he emerged as heroic in his desperate fight against Rudolph in defending his kingdom, and despite his strength and skill in battling, he died as a hero against the evil villain Rudolph.
I specially like the warlock in blind swordsman. After hearing the blind man's tale and his adventures along the road, he yet refuses to grant him his sight. Although given my optimism and the way I see the life, this character looks to me as a metaphor in which problems hinder your path step by step and with all the dificulties you have faced before, it's best to ready your sword and grip your shield and be ready for the assault! Other than that, I can't recall the other exact game characters I have liked. I will write more if I do so
The pilot in Three-D Velocity.
Honorable mentions of charactors that I did admire from Mainstream games: Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, Dante from Devil may Cry, Steve Burnside from Resident Evil Code Veronica, Astaroth from Soul Calibur, Bakuryu from Bloody Roar, Brad from Altered Beast, uh ... what else? Should be a lot more then that but I don't recall any at present.
Well, if we were to include mainstream games I would say one of the funniest characters and therefore one of my most favourite ones would be Cookie Masterson from the Jackbox games. That guy always cracks me up. Either way, it's nice to see that this has been revived after so long ago. Keep those answers coming. :D
