If you could be a game character...

Here's another one, if you could be a game character... (can you guess what's next!)... what would you be. You don't have to go for the obvious of characters who summed up the game but you could something within the game itself which didn't take the lead.

Here are my two suggestions to kick start it off.

How about the bloke who drove the Outrun car, not only did he have a sporty Ferrari who drove around the beaches, he had a fit blonde beside him. What more perfect world could it be!

Eugene on Manic Miner in his little lair. Maybe it's the nasty way he would come down quickly when Miner Willy would get the final key.

I think I can narrow it down to two choices.

1. Desverger from Hired Guns (Amiga). It was partly the Clint Eastwood 'man wit no name' cool he had about him, as well as the sniper rifle, and the rude comments he used to bark at his team mates as he barged past them ('get outta my way...')

2. The Force from R-Type. INDESTRUCTABLE!

And a bonus third that just ocurred to me.

The hero from Frost Byte, purely for being the first macaroni cheese to ever make it in games:

He sure was. I remember that well on the Amstrad CPC464. I'm trying to think where his adventures start. Was it a ship or sommat or the first screen?

Has to be Miner Willy, but there's no way I would have ever 'about turned' when reaching the bedroom. :wink:

Dexter from Get Dexter (the game known as Crafton & Xunk in France). It was probably Amstrad only. They did start a Spectrum conversion but couldn't complete it.

He was way cool - he could jump on the beds, kill monsters by dropping things on them and had a cute pet called Scooter who came to him when he whistled. It was an isometric 3D game - quite chunky graphics, but oodles of personality.

One of the foresters in The Settlers.. you could completely remove the road to their house after he's moved in, so he could spend the rest of his days walking in the hills planting trees. Bliss.
