Video games get a lot of flak for being a soft form of entertainment, for them providing very little in the way of educational content or even stuff that makes you think of anything more than “Hmmm, I wonder how many flashbangs I could throw at that terrorist before he literally collapsed of a mechanically induced seizure”. Characters from video games also get criticised for being impossibly unrealistic representations of the human form or for being huge dicks, so to combat that, here are 4 quotes that show that some video game characters are pretty damn smart.
I freaking love Albert Wesker, he is, bar nothing, one of my favourite characters from any video game ever made. I have quotes from him committed to memory and I have the Umbrella logo tattooed on my own body, though the latter is mostly to fuck with people after I die. He can punch clear through a mans chest and can kung-fu his way out of a zombie holocaust. In short, he’s the man. Well he would be if he took off those damn glasses.
A douchebag is a special kind of person who usually has all of the manners and likeability of a sex offender with aspergers syndrome. However while looking at some classic well loved gaming figures I noticed that, if you boil them down to a basic descriptions, they kind of sound exactly like the kind of people you’d hate at a nightclub or party. So I thought I’d see if you guys could test your gaming knowledge and try to figure out the character from their unflattering description.
