BlogBanter is a group of websites who set a topic monthly and ask each site to have a writer comment on it, sharing the various sites thoughts across all the various BlogBanter participants. So please check the url’s at the foot of the article regularly, as new articles are added. But for now, enjoy OXCGN’s take of Game Character Change.
When you have a character that has been established for several games, years, or even an entire series, making any changes (no matter the subtlety) can easily upset your fanbase.
It’s not something that you can take lightly. You are watching this same individual over the course of his/her story and development, and come to find this as commonplace.
But when the sequel comes out, and the character is completely different, the lid is off: it’s fair game for every kind of criticism.
