Sorry this is so late! My brain has been in a fog and I didn’t realize I was missing the post until midnight.
This week’s topic is…
Video Game Characters I Relate To
I have a tough time relating to a lot of characters be it in reading or video games…most of the time I see tiny bits of myself in some characters, but never the full combination mixed perfectly.
I tried to pick characters who value intelligence and prefer solitude or control…but the other traits vary on just how prominent they are. They all have a darker layer as well from dark humor to a willingness to do what is needed even when it’s less than desirable.
Morrigan from the Dragon Age franchise – She’s intelligent, enjoys her solitude, fluent in sarcasm, and gets frustrated with other people really quickly. She’s also one of the more grumpy and darker hero characters too, which I totally get.
GlaDOS from Portal – There is no denying Glados is a bit…twisted. But I get her. She’s a mess. She’s anti-social, she’s had to deal with crazy people to the point where she’s a bit crazy herself, her personality is comprised of smaller little personalities that if out of balance could basically stop her from functioning correctly (hello depression, anxiety, and anger/stress management). Granted I don’t want to make people run through tests where they might inevitably die, but I do like knowledge and experiments and I definitely like cake.
Liara T’Soni from Mass Effect – She’s quiet, not overly use to being social, curious to a fault, and huge lover of history. Plus she goes to some pretty steep means to gain information. I really get her insecurity too
My tv stopped working this month, from what I assume is under use because I didn’t turn it on as much as a normal person does…so that’s the only solution I can think of.
I’m also not playing anything on the laptop because my laptop stopped connecting to the internet in July, and I’m using my boyfriend’s laptop…possibly indefinitely, but I haven’t downloaded anything else.
Such is life…
