Why this question popped into my mind, I can’t really say, but I can say that it’s an interesting argument. I was planning on posting this during Tanabata when I was feeling a bit silly, but Tanabata was something I missed the chance to write about last year and didn’t want to pass it up this time around.
But, I couldn’t let this post go drifting away into the recesses of my memory either. Being that summer vacation starts VERY soon, I’m in a bit of a silly mood again, so please forgive the random topic (it should be fun though).
If I got into a street fight, which video game character would I want with me?
Oh, man, this is a pretty tough one. There are so many characters to choose from: should I take Dhalsim from Street Fighter 2 because he could just stretch his arms and knock the guys out before we get there? Should I take Megaman (Rockman in Japanese) because he has so many cool weapons? Not likely because, just my luck, he’ll have the bubble cannon on the day when we get into trouble. I’m going to say I want to take Sephiroth with me, number one, his sword is custom made for taking out a slew of baddies with a, single slice. Second, Sephiroth doesn’t seem like the type to take to kindly to lip. When those gang members start talking trash…BANG!…a meteor falls from the sky to crush them. Easy.
*You can even choose bad guys!
We can’t bring up one half of the argument without bringing up the other, right?
Which video game character wouldn’t you want to take with you in a street fight?
In this case I’m going to definitely say I don’t want that chef from the video game classic Burger Time (I’m not sure if that’s a Japanese character or not, but I’m breaking the rule on this one). If you aren’t familiar with this game, there’s a chef who you have to assist in making burgers. You add lettuce, cheese, salt, pepper (if I remember it right). If there’s a gang of bikers who are wishing to do me bodily harm, that guy’s just not gonna cut it. I mean what’s he going to do, sprinkle pepper on my attackers? All that’s going to do is make them mad. We’d both end up battered, bruised, and in hospital beds. If he was the only person available, I’d probably just go it alone.
How about you? Who will you take? Who won’t you take? Please tell me why.
I know there’s a creative crew of readers out there, so I’m sure we’ll get some cool answers. If you’ve been reading but have never commented before, I’d love to hear your thoughts too.
