Happy Father’s Day Novas! Thank you for reading today’s double feature! I hope your Sunday is going well! I apologize for not uploading the 30 day challenge post yesterday. Some friends and I went to a gamer bar last night and had a great time! I didn’t get home until really late so I was not able to get the post our.
Day 17 – Favorite antagonist.
Day 18 – Favorite protagonist
We will start with Day 17’s post. As soon as I read the topic I knew exactly who I wanted to pick; General Raam from Gears of War! General Raam was the king locust and his entrance was as magnificent as his downfall. Raam came in wielding a huge sword and killing off one of the main characters on the original Gears of War game. He commanded the locust armies bringing in new hybrids and showing his dominance. This character towered over everyone else, both human and alien and was built Ford Tough! Raam had great fighting skills and he would unleash his Krill (pretty much bats that eat you) in combination with swift punches and a swing of his blade. Raam was so amazing in the GOW series that he became a downloadable character on Killer Instinct Gold! General Raam I salute you!
If we’re talking other video games, remember in the Xbox Game Pass post that I mentioned downloading Lego Batman? Another great antagonist is hands down the Joker! You are able to play as good guys or Gotham’s finest criminals in the Lego franchise. THe Joker is amazing (and demented) with his silly puns, joke-ster traps and mayhem seeking personality. Joker has been one of my favorite villains of all time.
Some other notable antagonists are from video games and comics: Magneto, Megatron, Star scream, Bowser etc.
On to Day 18 which is the flip side… my favorite protagonist.
This topic was a little more difficult to think about. Many of the video games I play are based around you creating your own character. This makes it hard to select a protagonist. Some of my favorites would be Yoshi, Kazooie, Baird and Cole (I know i’ve mentioned all of these names in previous challenge posts) or even Chun- Li or Kasumi! There’s plenty to pick from.
Those are my answers for this 2 part post. Who are some of your favorite protagonists and antagonists in video games? Let’s talk video games!
