Nikita Meme - [1/9] characters ⇢ Nikita Mears
We all wear masks. Everyone, everyday and sometimes we wear them so much we forget who we really are; And sometimes if we are lucky someone comes along and shows us who we really wanna be, who we should be.
Well, I saw this meme going around Tumblr and I decided to do it myself even if nobody has tagged me yet.
The thing is that I really like this kind of stuff and I want to tag people because I’m interested in reading their answers, so here the rules: you have to list your top 10 of favourite/most important videogames and then tag other people :D
Here I go!
Quick explanation, starting from the bottom:
Tomb Raider was my first videogame, I’m still very close to the franchise and I’ll never forget the heart attack I had when the T-rex showed up in the first game, lol.
Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria was of my favourite games on PS2, and I should really replay it now that I’m seriously studying the scandinavian mythology. The main characters are not the best, but the Valkyries do rock!
I’ve only recently got close to Tales series, but Xillia was definitely an excellent start. It has maybe the best combat system I’ve ever met in a RPG and the story and the characters turned out to be much better than I had expected.
I’ve loved the Tekken series since I was a child and I played Tekken 2 against my dad. I like fighting games in general, but Tekken to me it’s the best.
Xenogears is a deep and complex JRPG and I absolutely love it! It’s just too bad it had to suffer a major budget cut in the second half of the game, but it’s a game everyone should play anyway!
Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy X are my favourite FF games except for my biggest love, Final Fantasy VII. FFVI has the best cast of characters to me, while I’m really attached to Spira and I think FFX is probably one of the most touching games I’ve played.
Resonace of Fate is just a game I love SO DAMN MUCH. The setting, the battle system, THE CHARACTERS… I know it’s not a game that everyone can enjoy, but I really really do. Actually, I’m a bit of obsessed, ‘cause it surely deserves more love.
Final Fantasy VII: my first JRPG, and still one of the best game in the entire world. I love it so much, it’s like a part of me: I think the plot it’s fantastic and there are just a few characters I love as much as I love Cloud and Aeris.
Xenoblade Chronicles to me is the perfect JRPG: it has everything a game like this should have and I love every single tiny bit of it. Characters, story, setting, music, gameplay, voice acting… It’s all amazing. I love it, I really do.
Oh dear anon, just to clarify: I wasn’t mad at people who don’t know Shulk, my previous post was simply against all the hate I’m seeing in the Shulk tag, which I thought would be only filled with excitement!
I’m actually really happy that new people will get to know this character and I will gladly talk a bit about one of my favourite RPG heroes ever.
Shulk is a very particular main character, especially for a JRPG. He has no interest in playing the hero, in the beginning: he likes to live an ordinary life, spending all his time working in his lab. He is, in fact, a young engineer, and as such he is really smart and he has a huge interest in figuring out how things work. For this reason, he is often lost in thought, and luckily for him he has his two childhood friends looking out for him.
What I like the most about Shulk is the fact that he’s a very reflective person: while many heroes usually end up acting before thinking, Shulk does the opposite, always thinking and thinking and thinking before taking any decision. Doing so, he is capable to understand even his enemies’ reasons. He is responsable and kind-hearted, and he always tries to help the people he befriends, even if he’s a bit shy at first :)
Well, I guess that there’s much more that could be said about this character, but I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll stop here :) I really hope that people will like him as he deserves ;)
God, I didn’t think I could read such a huge amount of bullshit, like: who is this Shulk? Oh, Shulk is that guy from Xenogears/Xenosaga (seriously, tho, at least pick a title for Nintendo consoles, dear Lord). And even better: what the hell is Xenoblade Chronicles, nobody knows it outside of Japan
What can I say, people, I feel sorry for you if you really think nobody knows the game worldwide acclaimed as the old gen best JRPG, or if you actually think the Xeno-series is a big messed up shit…
I’ll enjoy my pretty little Shulk with his new pretty little nose and I’ll try not to think of the fact the world has many more idiots than I thought ^^

›Analog Interface → things are evolving (2/?): “i can hear you”— What’s in this code?
—Memories. They’re its memories. You call it a life, I call it a machine, but the truth is… somewhere in the middle. Even when I was building it, I began to encounter anomalies. As if it had imprinted on me, like a child with a parent. Then it started looking out for me, altered its own code to take care of me. It was behaving like a person. But the world didn’t need a person to protect it. It needed a machine.
—You took its memories.
—Not just memories.
