So, after the favourite fighting game characters, I thought, why not do one about all gaming? Any genre, any platform, any year.
The character that we played in MGS1, 2 and 4, not the prequel variations in MGS3 and 5. A rugged, no nonsense but soft at heart (some of those cell convos haha) soldier who will let nothing, not even his own blood, stand in the way of securing peace and freedom. He is the ultimate hero who will sacrifice anything for the right thing.
I mean MY Commander Shepherd. The character I guided and crafted across two great games. Mass Effect 2 to however, is the piece de resistance. A game based so heavily on creating relationships across the galaxy and carving them into a successful, galaxy saving team.
Through my interactions I actually cared about the characters, one of only a handful of times in my gaming life. Why did I care? Because it felt as if Shepherd was a conduit for me. My choices, my actions, my victories and my failures.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
