Find me a game with characters (not a puzzle game) where there isn't a main protagonist
in games with a companion character who talks directly to you the player, you are the main protagonist
black myself, it helps in the immersion. But most of the time, it's some Cole Train looking motherfucker
I sincerely don't remember the last time I've had a grizzled veteran companion die in a game.
Someone explain this meme to me
The secret to edgy characters is making them funny and over the top.
An edgy character that the game takes seriously is awful.
I'll never understand the love for Dark Link. It's about at self aware as this thing was.
Fun fight though.
>female warrior/fighter/brawler type character
>small, petite, without a single ounce of visible muscle on her.
i hate it so fucking much. seeing female characters clash swords with dudes much bigger than them when you rightfully know there's now way they'd be physically strong enough fucking infuriates me to no end. i like it when they actually look the part.
it's also my fettish. so you know.
How many games even do this? I can only think of one and it's a plot device.
Also animu eyepatch covering muh super powerful eye abilities. There's a few of them.
>fit/bodybuilding women are an unrealistic.
lol. found the tumblritte porkdemon
Maria in Xenogears was pretty tanky too.
Rico more so, but he was shit.
For 99% of the main game, Pamela in Mana Khemia is the definition of a meatshield tank.
Then at the end, she gets a skill that transforms her into the Destroyer Of Worlds.
Of course, HP was a meaningless stat in the postgame, and almost everyone is scraping by on 1 HP without giving a fuck.
Sometimes its nice to see my own character in a game, but having a well written protagonist is usually better
I like when heterochromia is subtle and easy to miss because when it's not it feels like it's a cheap way to make your character look more unique and interesting than they really are.
>mfw i have central heterochromia.
It's not as striking as "normal" heterochromia, but men, dem bitches sure like it when they notice my eyes are yellow in the center and blue outside.
From Wikipedia you lazy cunt
athletic women don't have breasts
I don't have my phone here, sorry pal.
Anyway, pic related is how my eyes look.
Yellow inside, blue in the middle and dark blue outside.
My eyes are beautiful but as i'm a beta faggot i can't get laid, even when girls are interested in my eyes. ;_;
nowadays they think hes misandric.
heterochromia is bad in general
I have a blue eye and a green eye and it's cool since it's hard to notice but when people do notice it they freak out and everyone in the room needs to be told about it. They all then proceed to want to see it and I have to stare at people for a few minutes, it's fucking annoying
Sure they do. Strong pecs just make them look about a cupsize smaller than if they had no muscle.
>MC has an inner demon/monster that takes over if he's about to die
>evil version of protagonist
It's done horribly 90% of the time, but when it's done right it's amazing
>Cool veiny corrupted shit
>tfw the evil version is a recolor of the protagonist
>protagonist is a swordsman
Almost always means he has the most boring skillset possible.
Fuck you Adol.
>playing gow3 campaign with friend
>start talking about watermelon and acting like cole saying man I love fucking watermelon
>cole in game random does a Wooo! after that
>spend 10minutes laughing
>13 year old girls able to withstand damage because lol magic
when will this meme end?
same as you, although two brown eyes, 1 very light one very dark, people sometimes think Im blind. I dont mind it though. and Im sure there is an actress who has the same thing, I forgot her name
>Antagonist teams up with Protagonist in the sequel
They can be pretty cool when they're done right, but most of the time they just turn out faggy and/or useless.
It doesn't help that they have the worst fanbase.
>MUH MUSCLE WIZARD
>MUH GENTLEMAN BRAWLER
>WEAPONS ARE FOR WEEABOO SHITS
>Nearly kill a boss
>Boss uses some bullshit to get their health back to 100%
You're effectively fighting them twice. It happens in Pokemon where unless you outright kill them in one hit, they'll get back to full health where it seems like you're not fighting 6 pokemon, but 12.
>It's a game that clearly wanted to be a movie instead
>It even has characters modeled after real actors.
having two eyes with different colors.
it's a real thing that exists, but it's rare and usually not all that noticeable. That said special snowflakes and shitty writers use it on their characters in order to make them stand out and be unique. Pic related as an example.
>protag has a super form that can absolutely wreck shit
>but it's highly unstable and basically if he uses it he's risking dying from something like overheating or going insane or something like that
now this shit is cool, don't get me wrong. what I hate is
>protag gains control over the form and now just uses it all the time since there's no more issues
it can be handled well, but it never fucking is.
yeah but it's of the "you'd never notice it if he didn't point it out to you" variety.
also speaking of eye colors, having an eye color that isn't common in general is a pretty big red flag. for some reason it just makes your character come off as a snowflake in a way that having odd hair colors doesn't.
>4th wall breaking
Most of the times it's badly done as fuck, unless you're doing it to fucking surprise/shock me (Irisu Focus/Ending, Asgore, Eternal Darkness Insanity Effects, MGS), you shouldn't do it at all. I hate when a game literally says "LOLOLOL THIS IS A GAME GEDDIT?" like Jak3 or OFF Zacharie.
Most of the time it is simply putting every boss in the game in a line to get beaten up. I prefer when they mish and mash bosses mechanics so you the difficulty is raised a lot.
#HAES # Effyourbeautystandards #meat for the Men
My biggest gripe is that it constantly tries to focus on shitty characters like grape nigger, batshit bakugou, hands mcasswipe, and now that fucking faggot kid with the stupid cap.
Even worse is that instead of actually writing shit well, horikoshi pussies out and also relies on stupid ass cliches nonstop, so much so that his actually good writing feels like the light in the tunnel before the shittrain that's about to follow. And instead of writing about shit that would actually be interested in like all might's backstory and more info on all for one and one for all, he just skips over it with "oops, I forgot".
It's fucking hilarious that people claim it's a return to golden age style super heroes, when it's nothing more than a generic powers anime in manga form (read pic related if you don't get what I mean by this) that has non-standard character designs and a few interesting powers.
What sucks is that the potential is there, but it has an incompetent retard in charge of it.
You fucked up.
Also, that's because ONE doesn't give a shit about appealing to demographics or pandering to editors' demands. He just does whatever he feels like and takes the piss out of retarded stereotypes and cliches on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, your typical jap doesn't "get" this, and instead does all sorts of stupid pairings and scenarios in their fanart.
Eh. I thought it was pretty good. Most Anime I've seen is either;
>cute girls doing cute thing or cute girls doing manly things
>complete opposite and edgy as fuck over the top bullshit
Both are equally shit.
I felt like it was a good compromise.
I don't know if this counts but the one I remember really liking is Letho in Witcher 2.
He's pretty different from you visually but he is a witcher too (lol) and uses a sword, bombs and signs just like you. The first time you fight him there's a real sense of threat as you realise he's basically like a souped up version of you. The one that springs to mind is that force-push spell (ard?). You use it on him and it staggers him, he uses it on you and you go flying across the room.
It's a good series that people like to shitpost about because it's popular.
I think you might enjoy Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (depending on the part) but I'm not really gonna try to suggest anything to you in particular besides it
Actually heterochromia is almost always caused by developmental issues in the womb and not genetics. IIRC only "partial" heterochromia (where one part of one eye is a different color) has a strong hereditary component, full blown heterochromia is never or almost never the result of lineage and isn't passed on.
I'm not sure if you're being serious, or if you saw my bait and decided to bait even harder.
>I think you might enjoy Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (depending on the part) but I'm not really gonna try to suggest anything to you in particular besides it
I binge watched death note, berserk, gurren lagann and hunter x hunter and loved everything
but went to my uni's anime society and cringed at the weeaboo stuff.
It's a very mixed bag
Dark pit managed to surprisingly develop into his own personality
He's honestly the only one in Nintendo's "Dark clone" copy pasta that deserves a spot in Smash but they fucked it up by making him a complete clone instead of utilizing the variety of weapons KIU has
Worst decision since Falcondorf, which is still the worst decision ever
>Lazy character is actually really strong and an underachiever
The only reason I like this trope at all is because sometimes it catches me by surprise a couple of times.
Otherwise, it's just a shortcut to writing a likable character because at least 100000 spergs are going to think "Yep, that's me."
Too bad they completely fucked his character in the latest game, what were they thinking? The character who is know to be edgiest motherfucker in his universe becomes a goddamn pansy
>MC has an inner chaotic side
>>>>>Turns out the chaotic side was the original and MC had amnesia
>It's a boss rush
>Of bosses that aren't even in this game
>the boss is a human/humanoid that has a similar moveset to the player/character's
Usually sucks because the AI is shit or it's too easy to stunlock them, or it's impossible to stun/combo them.
The one with the waitress is actually pretty good, but it's a sequel and you should watch the first one first
The high school one could be literally anything, but if it was Daily Lives of High School Boys you should probably kill yourself
>he hates Nichibros
literally get the fuck out
daily lives of highschool boys is great man
see, you have this idea in your head that slice of life is bad
but how could you know that? you've never actually watched one
they all sounded boring and unappealing
Which is a fragment of your original image, being reincarnated in time again and again, and the antagonist is the older version of you that tired of this shit.
>the smaller and more humanoid an enemy the stronger they are
>"if we destroy the demon crystal or kill the god of destruction or whatever, we will die!"
>do the thing
>they actually die
Yeah, it's better than an asspull of the gods bringing them back to life, but then this happens:
>progress doesn't save
It's even worse when they manage to fuck up the character model.
>huge battle going on
>MC is only vaguely nearby, not actively participating
>Antagonist is an evil version of a Protagonist from a previous game
Every time there's a waterfall in a video game, I will do my best to get inside that sucker. Nine times out of ten, there's nothing behind it, but I keep doing it anyway.
That one time is always worth it.
>Game has a minigame that's harder than the real game
really? i thought they did it quite well
Pointless and repetitive minigames such as hacking.
>major character was raped or abused as a child
literally the worst type of backstory. 99% of the time its just a shitty writers way of trying to make a bland character interesting
I'm a whore for character customization, but I am always more attached to written protagonists over oc ones. It is mainly because in games where you are given your own character there isn't any set in stone development or arc for them to go through. The only game that I can think of that has gotten closest to having good character creation was probably New Vegas, but it still didn't really work and the customization was pretty shitty.
>cute girls getting naked to fist harder
I need to play that game
>Protagonist has heterochromia
>The odd-colored eye is the villain's and he's using it to spy on the protagonist
