Narde15, EvoAnubis, Asuka424, and CrashMurphy discuss the week in the PlayStation world and the news of GDC.
We ran a bit long this week, but that's never a bad thing. Hope you guys enjoy it.
Good podcast! I wasn't even hip to its existence.
Excellent job guys! I'll be joining in at SOME point... =)
Excellent! Hope to see you on the show soon!
There are good video game protagonists, and there are bad video game protagonists.
I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.
omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha
Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way.. Tidus was so meh to me.. On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽
I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.
Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.
Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense
What about that Forspoken Tw*t
exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list
Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.
She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it. Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.
Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.
Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist
Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.
Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so... People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.
No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him. The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.
Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.
My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold
Except Squall has actual character development.
the "watever" is only present in the english localisation. so your argument doesnt rly ... stand imo.
Good for you that you could enjoy the japanese version. That's not the case for me and the majority of people here, though.
i had to stop reading after the "blatant misogyny" in the Dantes inferno section. i actually liked Max haha. the forspoken chick is missing tho
Lara Croft in the new trilogy is quite unlikeable too IMO
Yes! By the end of Forbidden West I couldn't stand Aloy. It was just never ending sighing and sarcasm from her, and she seemed to have a problem with pretty much everyone she came across. Great game let down by a thoroughly unlikeable character.
