She's also in my top 10, but nothing can beat Yoshi in my list. Actually, so far, I only have a real top 3, which has Yoshi, Samus and Mona in that order. But yeah, Rosangela has been in my top list since I first played a Blackwell game.
So, let's just list some characters I love and / or adore and why, aside from the first three being in no particular order.
I just love Yoshi. Don't know why. He's cute and helpful, a kind of character I wish was a Pokémon. Yoshi is kind of like a dog, except he's not a dog, which is good, since I don't like dogs (which is ironic, considering K. K. Slider is also in my top list). I mean I suck at playing with Yoshi, but I can't help but pick him always in Super Smash Bros. and any other game.
For starters, thanks to my knowledge of video games and especially her I actually won a game. Sure, it's the Metroid Prime Trilogy, but still. And I just think she has an intriguing backstory. She's strong, but also vulnerable, which is something they tried to convey in Metroid: Other M I assume (never played that game, so I wouldn't know for sure). To be honest, it didn't surprise me they went in that direction in Other M. People don't seem to realize it, but Samus isn't as strong as people want her to be. Sure, she's a very strong woman, and a good role model, but you cannot deny that being traumatized at such a young age does eventually have its effect. Nobody can get over a trauma, and even after Other M, it will keep haunting her for the rest of her life. I think people just forget that, and only want to see her as this strong warrior, a Metroid so to say, rather than just a person.
Yeah, I don't exactly know how this happened, but Mona has a special place in my heart. I mean, if you're talking about two-dimensional characters, Mona can't be any more flat. But that's okay, because sometimes we just want to be entertained, and Mona entertains. Especially with that very catchy song.
Eevee is an example of a Pokémon who is the perfect blend of cute and tough. So yeah, it's not all that strange that Gary Oak used to have one himself. That, and Eevee has the most evolutions, which is awesome. Not that I actually evolve Eevee or anything though.
K. K. Slider
He's a musician, and I love music. It's one of the reasons I always love to play Animal Crossing on Saturday. And his songs are catchy, which is no wonder, considering the tunes are made by Kazumi Totaka.
I actually started playing the Blackwell games on accident. I was browsing through my Steam list and then I saw an icon with a woman wearing glasses. Glasses are my kryptonite. So yeah, after the first Blackwell game, not only did I get hooked on the Blackwell series, Rosa also had a special place in my heart. I don't know if it's the social awkwardness or her other personality things, but she's got something. Or it could just be the glasses.
There are times a gamer can truly identify himself with a character. Funnily enough, that character for me sort of became Morgan LeFlay. I mean, she's a big Guybrush fangirl, and aren't we all a bit of a fanboys or fangirls for something? Aside from that though, she's got quite a few talents, and I'm not talking about the two she always carries. But she's also caring, and takes her stand when she feel it's the right thing to do.
I think that's it, although I might have missed a few. Mostly since lately I'm more into cartoons and stuff, so yeah. Someone should make a thread for that as well.
