30 Day Video Game Challenge – Day 5: Characters we emulate (or seek to)

Bracken Lee-Rudolph from ITF Gaming writes: When playing through videogames, we often find characters that we resonate with, relate to or share personality traits with. At the very least, we find characters that we like and seek to emulate some of their more valiant traits (or evil, parasitical ones, if that’s how you roll). (Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

"Back in the day I felt very much like Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy 8. You see, back then I was a bit of loner, an introvert as well as incompassionate. While I am still a bit of an introvert today, I must admit I have broken out of my shell. You see, even though Squall and myself eventually opened up, we also moulded ourselves into stronger people that instead of being loners, we could now be depended on."

Well done Darryl...you actually understood the point of Squalls character development instead of ignoring what he turns into at the end of the game and automaticaly calling him an "emo".

Thanks. Probably one of my favourite games from the past.

Alot of people do understand it..that doesn't mean they have to like the character. I understnad it perfectly(also somewhat introverted)...but I didn't want to see a character do that. It was just boring and annoying.

In saying that, Squall's character development is the best in FF.
