I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake11h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga6h ago

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👍🏽

Rancegamerx8h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga1h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H95h ago

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

MrChow6666h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens525h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

Christopher4h ago(Edited 4h ago)

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.

ravens522h ago

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.

savedsynner1h ago

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

Nerdmaster15h ago

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.

-Foxtrot8h ago

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.

BrainSyphoned7h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H95h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq17h ago

Except Squall has actual character development.

gold_drake5h ago(Edited 5h ago)
