As a musicologist, this one is quite close to my heart. My music taste in general is quite eclectic so, as is slowly becoming a theme of these blog posts, it’s really really hard to narrow down.
I’m sure I’ve shipped so many game couples together that it’s hard to keep track of them all. Especially since my attention span for games is quite limited once I lose interest.
The obvious (and clichéd) answer for this question would be the Adoring Fan from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, but I’d put him there at the risk of taking an enormous cop-out. Also I actually find him quite endearing, and not just because we have similar hair.
Being a person who’s never really enjoyed being in their own skin, I tend to identify with characters with no connection to reality.

As with my last post, there are so many it’s really difficult to pin down. I’m the sort of person that connects with characters, but my tendency towards that is so strong that I usually either feel only basic apathy for characters I’m not connected to and become borderline obsessive about characters I like.
In order to build my portfolio (as well as getting into the habit of writing), I’m going to take up the 30 Day Gaming Challenge, seen on Reddit/Tumblr/pretty much every social networking site.
It’s been six years since the release of Bethesda’s multi-award-winning RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and with E3 firmly underway, I am once again in a permanent state of not-getting-my-hopes-up for the sixth game.
