Mouse & Milquetoast - Modern-World Games With a Timid Protagonist - an IFDB Poll

by Ghalev
RSS Feed

In some games, you play a brave hero, or a cynical crime-fighter, or a cunning robber. In others, you play an artificial mind, an alien, or an animal. In many, you play nobody in particular, just an average person of some kind, doing a job or falling accidentally into comedy or drama. But in some games, you play something below that, characters who dwell in the ordinary world but are markedly and deliberately below ordinary: characterized as timid, anxious or miserable, sometimes painfully straitlaced or finicky, often cowed or dazzled by the opposite sex, overborne by superiors, or limited by self-doubt or even self-loathing. This is their poll.
