So there’s this blogger named Kim from Later Levels who poses a monthly question. I haven’t responded to any of them before due to never having time. But I seem to have some today and I’ve decided to answer! And steal the banner image (sorry Kim, I hope you don’t mind). Exciting times, I know.
Anyway, the question is “Which video game character is most likely to stick to their resolution, and what would it be?”
This is much harder than I thought it would be. I immediately decided on a character from a series I have never played: Kratos. He’s got a lot of resolve hasn’t he? Full of determination to keep on going, murdering all and sundry until he achieves his goal. But then I thought “What if his New Year’s resolution is about not killing things?” and changed my mind.
What I need is someone who has resolve for whatever is placed in from of them. This discounts most game characters, as many of them are one trick ponies (that trick mostly being killing). And that’s when it struck me:
The guy will turn his hand to pretty much anything that is placed in front of him. I genuinely can’t think of anyone else who is more suited to folling through on a resolution.
