15 of Karutomaru's Role Models

[This is not my blog post. This blog was written by community member Karutomaru, whose account is currently undergoing difficulties.]

When you play games as much as I do, you start to form a connection to the especially well-developed characters. Over time, that connection almost feels as though they’re a person in real life, and you start to see that their ideals match your own, and that their actions are not unlike those we take in life. You learn from them, to the point of being role models, as though the games are another parent. I know how that feels. Over the years, I have looked up to different characters and their characteristics that I try and follow to better myself. Each of them has taught me something important I use in my everyday life, and I now take this blog to honor their teachings. This is a list of 15 of Karutomaru’s nerdy inspirations. I should point out that one of these is a person in real life. Try to figure out who that is.

For teaching me proper crime and punishment: Magnius.

The axe head of justice has no age restriction, little punk!

For teaching me how to deal with life’s problems: Cave Johnson

"When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back!"

For teaching me that torturing things with no emotions is fun and guilt-free: Hidan

"Now I can finally savor it. Savor the pain caused by your death!"

For showing me what good journalism is: Niijima Haruo

You wouldn't want this information out in public, would you?

For teaching me the power of hate: Mitsunari Ishida

"I will... Kill yoooouuuuuuuu!!!!!"

For teaching me to speak my mind, no matter how harsh or hateful: Jim Sterling

For teaching me good people skills: Nappa

"Well, it's been fun kid. I mean for me. Not for you."

For teaching me the wonders of science: Dr. Insano

"Yes. The cursed life-giving sun. We've finally defeated it! With science!"

For teaching me that sometimes sacrifices must be made in the name of science: Mayuri Kurotsuchi

For showing me what you can do when you’re loaded: Rugal Berstein

He can afford to blow up his house.

For showing me that you can live in a foreign country without fully knowing its language: Fawful

For showing me how to make French toast: the heavy

For showing me that the world is an evil and cruel place in which everything wants to kill you: King Graham.

For teaching me the value of life and the importance of saving others: Hank Freebird

For teaching me a hero’s duty, to always do the right thing, and to never give up: Viewtiful Joe

I have learned much from gaming, and I hope I can learn more. People say spending too much time playing games and watching anime can have a negative influence, but mine has brought me nothing but good.
