Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I mean.. Chrono -ChronoTrigger- :
He friggin dies
Isaac -Dead Space- : "Hey Isaac, you need to go hit this switch thats alllllll the way on the otherside of the Isimura. There's like a million monster guys between here and there but none of us other people with you are going to help..I mean.. I MIGHT unlock a door for you but meh..."
Gordon Freeman -Half Life- : Possibly one of the poorest saps ever... "Hey, lets do some stupid interdimensional experiments." "Oh I know...lets get Gordon to do it" "Who will take this RPG to the roof and take out the gunships? Ah Gordon, I couldn't ask for a better volunteer
whenever I play these games I can't help but tell the supporting characters how much the main must hate them
Do these silent guys ever catch a break?
Violent protests accomplish nothing! Defacing or destroying another's property is not an appropriate response.
