I've never seen True Detective, but I like Game of Thrones way more than Breaking Bad and House of Cards. And I love both of those shows.

Example: Charlie from Lost.
I actually prefer when characters die.

Just knowing that important characters actually can and do die adds huge significance to everything that happens in the story. I tend to get annoyed when stories make a big deal out of some character's death when no one really cared about that character to begin with.

Nice dude! I have it on my PS3 and have been doing some damage lately. I cannot wait until they offer CT for the iPad too.

Oy, and I'll buy it, too. Already owned FFVI on the Playstation, GBA, and Wii Virtual Console and Chrono Trigger on literally every platform it's ever been released on, but I'd definitely buy my two favorite games again and again.

If they ever make FFVI-2 (or an actual, direct Chrono Trigger sequel), then I'll be torn between my love of that game's universe versus my dislike of new Square RPGs essentially since FFX...

Enjoyed X, despite being habitually annoyed by the characters, but I'll go to my grave believing that X-2 was the jumping the shark moment. Gave up on it despite it's actually fun gameplay because literally everybody in the game annoyed the **** out of me.

And then the games that came after... Oy...

X is the last great FF (and my favorite.) Final Fantasy X was Squaresoft's final game. Is it a coincidence that FF has sucked ever since Square Enix came about? I think not. And dude, we got three XIII games. That's a slap in the face of every man, woman, and child on the face of the planet.

Lightning was an insult to strong women everywhere. Yuna was a strong female protagonist. She didn't need to punch people and act aggressively to prove it.

I'll take Celes and Dagger as my preferred female characters. Flawed, have baggage, capable of being independent while also being able to lean on others, actually having personalities, experiencing actual character development.... you know... people.

Also, characters that existed back when what they wore actually made ****ing sense.

Now you've done it. You brought up FFIX. Now I feel obligated to explain in detail how amazing Freya is as a character.

But yes, Dagger is also a good example.

By the way, I'm tired of the Squall and Cloud lovefest. They are annoying characters throughout most of their respective games. "Oh, they're so edgy. They don't care. They're aloof. He says 'whatever!'" And people complain that Tidus is whiny.

Okay. His father treated him like garbage, his mother ignored him, his father then disappears, seemingly dying. He grows up and a giant fish demon monster destroys his city, he gets sucked in because his new father figure and friend lifts him up into it. He then finds himself in a completely new world, lost and alone. He gets torn from his new friend because of Sin yet again, and then lands in Besaid. He meets new friends, and he goes on a journey to find his way back home. He then learns he will never go back to his home and that the love of his life will be a martyr. (By this time, he had already matured greatly.) But yeah, go ahead. Bring up his "whining" like you wouldn't. I mean you in a general sense, not you, NFS.

I prefer Zidane and Tidus to Cloud and Squall story-wise. They have personalities. They're emotional, vulnerable at times, but also determined and strong. Cloud and Squall are aloof *******s.

Oh yeah, thought that VII was decent at best. Honestly think it gets away with a lot because it was the first game that wowed a lot of folks graphically.

And VIII was guilty of having poor character development to a major degree. Squall had about as much personality as Gordon Freeman, but didn't have the benefit of being a self-insert character as the boor kept talking. Rinoa had major damsel-in-distress syndrome. Selphie was just a ditz. Zell was a frat boy. What's his face cowboy was so memorable that I don't remember his name. Quistis... actually, I liked her. Actually multi-dimensional, wracked with self-doubt over her own abilities, responsibilities, and feelings, and she actually developed as the game progressed, if memory serves.... why wasn't she the main character?

Tidus was annoying, but at least he had a personality.

Cloud only had a personality when he was cross-dressing. Boy, did that whole sequence sail over my head as a child.

The only "badass" type character I like is Auron. I usually don't like those characters. They annoy me more than any "whiny" character does.

Also, all characters are equally inferior to the greatness that is/was Locke Cole.

He seemed like a decent character. Nothing more, nothing less. VI doesn't have good characters as a whole. Also, he has a full bandanna in his portrait on the game, but yet in gameplay, he wears a headband. That annoys me more than you could possibly fathom. Don't ask me why.
