...Have you ever noticed how people may pick a certain character over
and over, lacking variety...?(Ken in Street Fighter)...Some people pick
who they pick just because they like them, but can it go much deeper
than that...?...I've often thought that to myself, and in my opinion,
more times than not, it's true...
...What I'm getting at is that people don't just pick a character
because of how he/she looks or plays, but because these certain
characters have something in them that is also a part of you...
...Take me, for example...in SS, my favorites are: Hanzo, Sogetsu,
Nakoruru, and Ukyo...So would that mean that I am at times quiet
reclusive, and brooding...?...Or at the same time cool tempered, and
diligent...?...And maybe a cute (I've been told) lover of
nature...?...Or a complete romantic who adores women...? (or is it the
other way around?)...and being that i know myself better than anyone
else, this for the most part is true...
...If you're not convinced...my friend IRL likes Haomaru, Genjuro, and
Zankuro...and he's basically an arrogant person, that has a dislike
(can't really say hatred) for certain persons...and is also capable of
bad things, I can see this in him...
...And this can be applied to any fighting game...try it on yourself and
see if your favorite characters share a personality trait you hold deep
