Read Play Blog #14 – Game Character I Relate To

August 16, 2015 by Jeann @ Happy Indulgence | Features, Gaming, Read Play Blog

Read Play Blog 2

Read Play Blog is a meme about video games and books, posted every 16th of the month. Bloggers are encouraged to answer a discussion question, and recommend a video game that is similar to a book they liked. Hosted by Happy Indulgence Books & Read Me Away.

Read Play Blog is back for another month of gaming! This month’s question is:

What game character do you relate to the most?

You all know I’m a big Final Fantasy fan, and there’s a reason that Rinoa is my header on Twitter. Rinoa is bubbly, warm, caring and extremely optimistic. She loves to tease Squall as well to tease him out of his cold shell, which is what I love doing. But sometimes she can be naive and stubborn and pushes her way, all traits which are pretty characteristic of me as well.

The thing about Rinoa, is that although she is outwardly confident and warm with people, inside, she’s extremely insecure and afraid of people leaving her. There’s no other character that I’ve been able to relate to as well as I have with Rinoa. I need to get my cosplay on!

Recommendation & Currently Playing: Fallout Shelter 

Yessss Fallout Shelter is now on Android! This game is such a fun Sim of running a shelter! It’s a combination of The Sims and XCom. You assign jobs to people living in your Vault or you can send them out to explore the wastelands! I love all the little details that make up this game and it’s so much fun. And it’s FREE! I had to restart my game because one extremely charismatic guy fathered a few too many babies and I got confused 😛 also it’s creepy. But yes, download it (it’s also on iOS).

Next month’s question: Which game characters do you relate to the most?– post your answer, recommendation & currently playing on the 16th or anytime during the month and link up!

    I had a lot of trouble picking characters for this one. I have a tough time with the same topic when it comes to reading. I see bits and pieces of myself in a lot of characters, but never the right mix. Probably why my favorite games are choice based or let me be the voiceless hero in a free sandbox world.

  2. Oh Fallout Shelter sounds good! I like sim type games, will have to download that. And yay for it being free!
    I haven't played that game with Rinoa, although I think it's on steam now, so I hope I can buy it eventually.

    I can't really think of a character I can relate to a lot.

  3. My friend has recently gotten addicted to Fallout Shelter, and I am afraid to download it on my phone because then I'LL NEVER LEAVE.

    Are you ready for Fallout 4?

    I really struggled finding someone I relate too, I'm not sure there is anyone. I just ended up picking some people I had felt strongly for recently. My post isnt up yet though.

    I downloaded Fallout Shelter the first day too and I'm so addicted ooops. I swear Im checking it every 5 minutes…

    • I know, it's really hard to find a character you relate to isn't it? Will check it out when it's up! Oh man, I'm the same! So addictive…I can see it getting old quickly though

  5. I'm currently playing Dragon Age Inquisition, it is super awesome!!! I can't think of a character that I relate to, but Sarah is providing me with endless amusement in this game so far. ;]

    Great choice with Rinoa – I like her a lot too. 😉

    Yay to Fallout Shelter as well – so excited for Fallout 4 so really need to get this to tide me over until its release. 🙂

    Yesss I love Rinoa, she's my favourite along with Yuna and Terra! I love her cheerfulness, her love for her doggie and of course her vulnerable core. I will never get sick of hearing Eyes on Me haha. Gah my old school FF feels are reawakened!
    My recent post Book Review: Updraft

    • OMG TERRA!! I loved her and Celeste! I wanted to name my future kid Celeste at one point hahah. I need to do this RInoa cosplay some time

  8. "It’s a combination of The Sims and XCom" Obviously I need to try this then, ASAP! I've only played the FF13 series (and loved them) so I don't really know too much the games outside of that. I bought the PS3 remake they did of X and X-2 but couldn't get into it because I didn't like the fighting style. Plus I had just come off a mad Dragon Age hangover, haha.
