Some weekend highlights for you:

We all have characters we're attached to for one reason or another. Today I'm wondering what characters are or have been role models for you. My first big example growing up was Princess Zelda, and I still think she is an excellent character to look up to for girls and boys alike. As a little girl I seriously wanted to be her. Next was Garnet from FFIX. She's mature, intelligent, and handles some serious trauma with aplomb. When she cut her hair, nine year old Morie cut her hair. Someone else I still admire to this day is Tifa Lockhart. She's different from the other two on the surface - more of a tough girl - but to me, she has the same quiet determination I always appreciate in characters.

Tell me about your gaming role models, or talk about absolutely anything you want.
