Guybrush Threepwood.

Swashbuckling my way around Monkey Island, insult sword fighting, drinking grog in the scumm bar, spitting contests, wooing the delightful Elaine Marley, meeting the likes of Stan, Meathook, Herman, Carla, and battling the evil ghost pirate Le Chuck.

What more do you want, a three headed mokey ?

I would like to be Manuel (Manny) Calavera from Grim Fandango, as I think for someone who is dead, he is pretty cool and has many talents.

Hmm lots of choices. I could go for being Sam Fisher, as it then means my voice is the same as Michael Ironside, and everyone knows he's a badass ;)

So the question for this month is

If you could be a videogame character, who would you be and why?
Horace. Although it would have to be on the condition that the ski centre erects some kind of pedestrian crossing on that busy main road. A blue blob could get himself killed!

I'd be Eric, the skoolboy hero from Skool Daze & Back 2 Skool.

He was able to get away with almost anything <g> :)

Great underrated game, only discovered this a few months back, bit like a very early version of Warioware !

I'd have to be Murray from The Curse Of Monkey Island.

I'm sure it would be fun to be a disembodied talking skull.

Jammy Jim from 180! There's money to be had being that good at darts, and it's the one sport I am naturally built to play (leaning over the snooker table gets harder by the day the more pies I eat so that's not an option these days.)
