Day 2: Your Favorite Video Game Character
Now this is a hard one for me. I know it’s only the second day but there are so many characters that I have enjoyed, its hard to choose just one. So I’m going to go with a character that I have played recently.
“You beget oppression! Liberation is a subtle work of art, not simple petty theft! You cannot take freedom you must create it.”
―Bayek of Siwa to Shaqilat, 38 BCE
Enter “Bayek of Siwa”
Bayek is the protagonist of the latest installment of the Assassin’s Creed series. Essentially he and his wife (former as well) are the ones that essentially started the (Hidden Ones) Assassin’s Order. He is the last of the Medjay along with his wife and he is out for revenge. I would go in his backstory but that would be reviewing the game which I already did here. Instead, I will tell you why he’s my favorite character(recently).
He’s the first “Assassin”. The beginning of the “Hidden Ones”. With the moral compass of Will Smith, Bayek is one of the strongest characters I’ve played. Not only was he getting revenge for his son, he was starting a movement. This character is the reason for all the other Assassin games. And it almost didn’t happen. He was more concerned with killing the people who took his son and murdered him. It was his perseverance and more importantly his wife that put him on the path to being apart of the Hidden Ones. He’s strong, loyal and most of all, a parkour master.
I know, I know…this isn’t the most lengthy post but I warned you guys! Seriously, there are a lot of characters that I could of chosen but having played AC: Origins more recently, Bayek came to mind. Although he is a killer, he is one for a noble cause. His strong yet gentle personality makes him a easily likable character. Also, he’s fun to play with. Who is/was your favorite video game character? Let us know in the comments! Until next time, Nerd Out!
