Platform Nation’s “A Simple Question” – 7/14/10

This week’s question will be of the fantasy variety.  I’m hoping for some creativity out of our readers, so here goes:

What video game character would you want to be, and why?

No caveats this week, you can choose from any character in any game, big or small.  But what I want to know is why?  Would you choose Sephiroth and then live out your days as the baddest, most fearsome farmer ever to lift a spade (“Take this, weeds!”)?  Would you be Mega Man and become an organ donor?  Superman from Superman 64 and reverse time to before the game was made, and destroy those responsible?  Let’s see what you got! says: “I want to be Sonic – it would be cool to be a blue hedgehog” – I’m hoping you can come up with something better than that.

A Simple Question (ASQ) is a weekly segment for Platform Nation.  Each week, you’ll be posed a question.   Give a response and let the world know what you think.  There is no right or wrong answer here.  I will post my response on Friday. If you have a suggestion for a question, hit me up on twitter @vttym.

  • Oh wow… I’m going to have to think on this one and get back to you… Hmmm…

  • Superman (he’s a video game character too), as for why, do you really need an answer to that? I mean come on, it’s Superman!

  • Superman is a good one, and most comic book characters have been made into a game by this point, but I will try hard not to say Wolverine 🙂

    So with that said, I’d be Kratos from God of War. Power to kill Gods. Power OF the gods. And the ability to, through a series of quicktime events, make other women make out with each other through the power of my prowess with Aphrodite, are all enough of a reason to rock a chrome dome.
