    Ever got emotionally attached to a fictional video game character? I've a got quite a few actually.


    Morte and The Nameless One from Planescape: Torment. Technically, I loved all of them, except maybe Fallen-From-Grace, but Morte deserves number one and TNO number one and a half.

    John Marston from Red Dead Redemption.

    My companion cube in Portal.

    Uther in Warcraft III. And the whole gang in the Durotar Campaign (Rexxar, Roshan, Misha and Chen)

    My Charizard in Pokemon Red.

    I've got a couple.

    Jackie Estacado and Jenny Romano from the first Darkness have to be some of my favorites. I think the game has got better atmosphere and characters than the majority of movies out there.

    Alyx and Eli Vance, from Half-Life 2. Again, some of the best writing, atmosphere and characters ever.

    A couple of characters from Ninja Theory's games; Nariko and Kai from Heavenly Sword, and Monkey and Trip from Enslaved. The gameplay of those games is not the best, but they can sure write good stories and characters.

    And last but not least, Grom Hellscream (you'll get a cookie if you can guess the games he's been in). Pretty much all Warcraft characters are great, but this one has got to be my favorite.

    Edit: Forgot all about Shadow of the Colossus, mainly for Agro. And it doesn't even talk. Best horse in a game ever. :)

    In video games? James Rayno'! Primarily because of how well Blizzard made it so you actually felt in his boots while playing the campaign.

    Who?!
    Do you mean "Jim Raynor" the hero of StarCraft II - Wings of Liberty?

    Play Final Fantasy games if you want to get emotionally attached to characters. Nearly every one had some characters you got attached to.

    Yeah, but I wouldn't wanna mention those. Because I nurture a very strong affection for most characters of a particular edition of those series.
    Not that all of them are equally propitious for attachment: I really don't see how you get attached to a Final Fantasy 8 character, for example. ;P

    I am not physically attached to any game characters.
    So I must ask.

    How does it feel to be attached to a game character?

    Your joke would've kind of worked if the OP didn't specifically ask for any game characters you've ever been emotionally attached to. But he did...

    Alex Mercer-Prototype.
    Sadly he had to be the bad guy in prototype 2 well I didn't see him as bad he just wanted to creat a perfect race.
    what's wrong with that.
