Rev Rant: Character Empathy

3:20 PM on 06.11.2009 // Anthony Burch

What makes a virtual character sympathetic?

Probably a thousand things, actually, but I chose to only focus on one or two in this week's Rev Rant.  And one of those things involves Jack Bauer, for some reason. I also decided to wear a green shirt in front a green screen, which is literally the dumbest thing I have ever done, this week.

Anyway, feel free to hit the jump to listen to a one-man discussion of character empathy in narrative-heavy videogames.
