GGTL: "The list of game characters has grown exponentially over the years, and with them the issues that develop in such a memorable way. Some of these problems are a bit more serious than others, but hey, they're still problems right?"
I do feel bad for Tidus in final fantasy X but if you play X-2 you learn that things aren't completely bad for him. Oh and Dom. Damn must suck to be him lol.
Playing the monstrosity that is FFX-2 is the problem. FFX was good enough
yeah, its not the best game ever lol, but I loved the story in Final Fantasy X so I made myself get to the end. I had to know if Tidus was gonna come back lol
yeah me too........ also why do you and i have disagrees
X-2 was horrible... oh, and where's Kratos that poor bastard went through hell... twice. Not to mention wife and kid were killed by his own hand and his dad tried to kill him.
You dont have to play X-2, just youtube the secret ending... which never made any sense to me why they would make such an important ending a secret or whatever. It was a great ending though.
Sorry off topic here but when i saw this screen shot this morning i thought it was going to be news on a HD remake of ffx....... Man that wouldnt have been amazing
I kind of felt sorry for Mr. House. I felt bad killing him lol.
No mention of Soul Reaver's Raziel? Fail. :P
I'd rather feel sorry for Squall then Tidus. Never knew his father, mother died, was left in an orphanage, the one person that he looked up to, "Ellone" was taken away from him and made him into the lonley, selfish jerk we meet at the begining of the game. To be honest Squalls character development is amazing from the jerk we see at the beginging to the brave heroic leader we see at the end. Shame people always just call him an "emo" and judge him from the guy we see at the start of the game instead of what he turns into.
Agreed - Squall's character came into being before Emos became so global! I'd never even heard of the term until around FFIX time.
I have to admit he does have the best character development in the franchise. The way we see the change of his character as he slowly opens up to the people around him and even the girl he loves makes that final scene with him and Rinoa finally kissing at Garden party way more satisfying It bugs me that people say Squall is an emo, so what does that make Cloud then. I'll get hate for this but in reality, getting past all the "FF7 is the best" talk that's clouded peoples judgment (be honest most of the FF7 "lovers" havent even played FF7...they just are repating what FF7 fans have said), FF8 was the better game in many ways and character development was one of them. All this talk of the junction system being hard or the draw system being crap are just silly excuses.
none of them are emo, you're furthering the bastardization of a word used to describe an outdated fashion. Nobody should even use the word emo anymore. If you do, it should be met with ridicule, laughter and "oh my god this guy is a total fucking idiot." FF8 was not the better game. It's cool to have your personal opinions and what not, but you're being retarded. And most of the FF7 "lovers" have actually played the game, it wasn't their first FF or JRPG. You can stop that bullshit right now. So LET'S BE HONEST here...you're just expressing your personal opinion in a very assholish way. My advice would be to shut the fuck up. And I actually like Final Fantasy 8.
Says the guy with a Sephiroth avatar...yeah I bet you like FF8 ¬¬ All I got from that was your an immature little prick Go and troll somewhere else. How should I bubble you down bad language or Personal Attack....What to choose, what to choose
cloud is emo Squall's back ground is just for is personality, love FF8 my personal top choice
^ Not to Say Squall didn't have reasons to be depressed... although you're wrong. Cloud has a much more depressing Background than Squall. First of all, Cloud was not emo. He was actually quite happy cheerful. In fact, Cloud has about 3 personalities. In Crisis Core, he's cheerful and upbeat (comparable to Tidus or Zack), in FF7, he's a complete jerk does not give 1/12th of a fuck. In Advent Children (The people who don't know the FF7 universe well point to Cloud as being), He's weighed down with the problems of his life and become fragile, mostly due to the fact that he's dying due to a fatal disease with no cure called Geostigma. His being mind control, and was betrayed by the man he called his hero. Both of his parents died. His best friend and mentor died trying to save him, and then amnesia made him not only forget about Zack, about inherit parts of his personality. Aerith died, and Cloud felt like he failed to protect her. He questions if his whole life was lie or an illusion.

i will never feel bad for Dom, especially after he dragged me all around gear2 for no reason what so ever, he needs to man up i would say Alan Wake, because of the fact he is trapped within his own mind and story, Vincent because of his relationship predicament, and John Marston cause he had his wife and kids taken to do the governments dirty work there are a lot come to think of it i would feel bad for, and a lot i would not
Way to give out MASSIVE spoilers for those who haven't played these titles!
I agree, had to skip most of them after I had one game spoiled that I was going to eventually play..
Uh... these games have all been out for years. If you haven't played them by now then you probably shouldn't be looking at a list like this in the first place. Then again, if you still haven't played these games then you're probably not going to.
poor gorden freeman, he gets crushed by the next boss and his bro john freeman has save the world from combines
otacon has it pretty rough, first his sister is killed by vamp then he falls in love to a woman that's in love with vamp and she dies.
No Minato from Persona 3? **SPOILERS** You make awesome friends, have so much fun in the world, make every love you and then you just... die. And in the lap of someone who cared so much for you. **SPOILER END** And Cole from inFAMOUS, I feel bad for him too. **SPOILERS** When evil, you become what you've been trying to stop for such a long time. And when good, you die.. :/ **SPOILER END**
I felt sorry for Snake in MGS4. I loved the game but seeing Snake as Old Snake was depressing.
Gradius what a classic.
Replace the boy from SOTC with the colossus themselves. Some of them didn't even fight back.
Vic Viper and Gordon Freeman aren't characters. Viper's a ship and Freeman has all the emotions of a wood plank with hair drawn on it.
"Halo's Master Chief really is quite a depressing character. Whilst the games don't exactly dive deep into his background, the man had no life, no friends, no family; nothing" They are obviously trying to relate to the average Halo player.
