18: Favourite Protagonist?

Like yesterday’s question, I struggled with this question…until I thought about it differently…

My favourite gaming protagonists aren’t the heroes of games, it’s the people who play as those heroes. It’s the great community on WordPress who discuss games in a variety of ways. It’s the peeps on Twitter who show off their awesome gaming collections.

See, IPs come and go. It’s the people who play the games that inspire me. People who keep showing me new games. People who inspire me by taking on crazy gaming challenges. People who arrange massive discussions on games and host great events.

Discussing and preserving gaming history is pretty important to me and that’s the big quest we’re all on. Ultimately, we’re all in this together. I’ve had a blast doing this since I started in March…

A few shout outs…

Dylan at Sega Does – gave me a chance to write for his site when many probably wouldn’t (to be fair, my only qualification is a love of 8bit/16bit Sega games) which ultimately led me to writing myself. So he’s kinda to blame, if you’re wondering…

The Well-Red Mage – Another person kind enough to let me write for his site and always up for great gaming discussions!

Kim at The Later Levels – I’ve really enjoyed chatting to members of the WordPress Community and Kim’s been a big part of that. The Christmas Party blog post and comments section was brilliant, it actually felt like I’d been to a real party, minus the awkward social situations and trying to take the last chocolate without anyone noticing…

There are lots of other great people who have inspired me to play new games and keep at the old games so thank you to everyone!
