He’s back! We’ve missed our weekly MrJohnSherry post over the last couple of weeks! But here he is! On a return to form!
…Mom! Mom! He’s doing it again!
Seeing as yesterday marked the much celebrated day of “Siblings” day, I thought it would be only be appropriate to discuss those video game characters who have come through all the petty arguments as children to come together to save the world together!
So let’s get right into it!
3) Crash Bandicoot and Coco Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back)
One of my favourite games of all time, sees Crash crash on N-Sanity island with his sister Coco. As he goes out to stop Cortex again, Coco acts as our hero’s eyes and ears on Cortex as he gets crystals back so she can see into Cortex master plan!
2) Chris and Claire Redfield (Resident Evil 2)
Resident Evil 2 sees our young heroine Claire arrive in Racoon City looking for protection from the police against the infected population. They arrive only to find out the police force is already wiped out and that Chris has already fled to Umbrella HQ in Europe! With her motivation gone, her and Leon set about the city looking for other survivors and a way out of the city. With plenty of jump scares to boot!
1) Mario and Luigi (Every Mario game ever more or less!)
Quite possibly the most notable game characters of all time, and they just happen to be brothers! The two plumbers have climbed the way into our hearts from young ages and still to this day have a prominent grip on it. I doubt there are any more likable game characters, or a franchise that is still this strong in the industry after this amount of time. Woohoo!
MrLuvvaLuvva’s honourable mention
The Carmine brothers (Gears of War series)
Ah the Carmine family! Gaming’s Ryans (as in Saving Private Ryan)! These guys had a habit of dying in hilarious ways in ‘Gears of War’ 1 & 2. Gears 3 however saw loads of people asking for C.Carmine to be saved, so many people asked in fact Epic Games gave the gamers the decision, by releasing two avatar t-shirts (one reading ‘Save Carmine’ the other ‘Carmine Must Die’) and stating that the best-selling t-shirt will be the outcome in the game. Which sold more? Play GoW 3 and find out!
