Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, wishing for the Yankees to land Yu Darvish, David Stern turning into Vince McMahon, or WWE Kane’s new mask, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.
Being the excellent gamers that you are, I’m sure most of you have imagined videogame versions of yourselves. Let’s say you were in an RPG. What would your character be like? Would you be a hero or a villain? Would you be the center of attention or one of many NPCs complaining about arrow-to-the-knee injuries? Tell me all about the wonderful RPG character that is you!
As for me, I definitely wouldn’t be the leading man, but I wouldn’t be his sidekick either. I see myself as half of a duo — think Blue Beetle & Booster Gold or Scooby-Doo & Shaggy. I would have rare moments of heroism interspersed between sarcastic banter, nights of drunkenness, bouts of gluttony, get-rich-quick schemes, and lots of complaining about the rigors of the road. The game I’d be in would be a classic, old-school RPG. I’d break the fourth wall at least twice per quest. I wouldn’t be the star of the game, but I’d have show-stealing moments.
Now it’s your turn! Kindly describe your RPG character in the comments section.
