    Nah, I'm a little too rational to believe that Cloud was really the beginning of the trend. It's just that from Cloud on is when it really started getting on my nerves.

    I think the only RPG character that has seriously annoyed me to no end has been Rinoa. Sure, she?s cute, but she?s a complete dimwit always getting in trouble because of it!

    1. Lunar

    I know, I know, from what I see this is a popular game, but I just can't stand most of the characters. They get on my nerves for some reason. I like Luna, and the main character seems to be pretty cool, but the rest... I still haven't seen one character, so I can't judge her, but the rest just bug me.

    2. FFX-2

    *Shakes her head in disappointment* I liked this games alot at first, but as I played it more I liked it less, now I really don't like the game. One major reason being the characters. Paine is cool, but Rikku drives me up the wall, I want to shoot her every time she talks, and they even managed to make Yuna annoy me somehow. Brother was awesome though laugh.gif

    3. FF7

    I liked 3 characters from this game (Aeries, Cid and Barret) but I don't like the rest. I hate Cloud. Absolutely hate him. Alot.

    1. Xenosaga. I dunno, but don't you hate it when you seem to have know everything about the backstory and universe of a game going into it just for it to make sense? I hate always being in the dark, especially with such crappy characters. The only redeeming characters were the mechanical ones. Ahh... Ziggy and KOS-MOS, is there no Gnosis you can't OBLITERATE?

    2. Illusion of Gaia. I like the game, but all the characters except Will are complete idiots. Maybe it's just the flawed translation... I wish that when I was eaten by a fish, instead of getting digested, I fused with it and learned Morse code!

    3. Grandia. Great idea for a story and very interesting, but possibly some of the sugariest and most annoying characters ever. I guess they can't all be badasses with blades, and gun-blades, and gun-blade-rocketlauncher-breadmakers.

    alien.gif Um, so, yeah.

    Care to explain? I find this a bit ironic, since I find the characters in FFVIII to make more sense than most other characters in RPG's.

    FF8 to me, some characetr are kinda unrelaistic. Squall, Rinoa, Selphire are the worst. Then Quistis act as she got drop out of the plot despite how she shouldn't....

    The cast really I don't get them.

    Legend of Dragoon - I only liked Shana. ?That being said, if anybody got up to the third disc, you'll know why I lost interest in the game(still finished it though).

    Suikoden III - Of the three main characters, I hated two and thought the other I thought was average. ?All the male characters were either fat, old, or ugly. ?The females... well there weren't enough of them.

    Honourable mentions:
    Breath of Fire II
    Xenosaga(chaos, MOMO, Rubedo, Albedo)
    Golden Sun: The Lost Age
    Final Fantasy X(Kimahri, Wakka)[/QUOTE]<span id='postcolor'>
    1. Quistis was the coolest in that cast.

    2. How could you not like Lavitz!?

    3. Well out of 108 people you are bound to hate a few, but I rather liked Hugo and Geddoe. Chris wasn't cool until she let her hair down.

    So the problem isn't that the cast is unrealistic, it's that you don't understand them.

    That's what I figured.

    1.FFIX-First off I utterly hate all the main characters in Final Fantasy IX. Steiner was the most pathetic looking knight that has ever lived(Even Zidane made fun of his trashcan armor).As for Zidane?Well, after playing thru disk one I would have gladly killed him and Steiner and that stupid blue mage creature(I can't remember it's name) just to get Beatrix.Who was the only cool character in that game.
    2.FF8-Although I really like that game I hated Irvine and Selphie. I only wish "<span class="spoiler">Edea</span>"would have been permanent.
    3.Chrono Cross-All those characters and there were only a few that were decent.Serge,Viper,Glenn,Karsh. All others were stupid and worthless, especially Kid! Oh, how wonderful it would have been "<span class="spoiler">if Lynx had really killed her</span>".

    Arc the Lad:Twilight of the Spirits: One of the worst cast of characters I've ever seen. ?A goody-goody "I will save the world" hero and his bad boy "I hate everyone" twin brother. a pink orc, one of the lost boys from Peter Pan, a girl with one huge shoulder pad and a weapon I don't even understand, and of course who can forget the giant head. ?When I found out that she was one of the characters I about turned the game off. ?I do like Volk, Bebedora and Tatjana, however. ?I mean how could anyone not love it when Tatjana says, "Ooh, that felt good."
    Grandia Extreme: ?God! ?Who came up with Evann and whatever that colonel guys name was. ?It's like pulling teeth getting through the first part of that game.
    FF8: ?Maybe its just because I could never get into the game, but I didn't like any of the characters from FF8. ?I've tried several times to play the game but it hurts my head.

    you could even go as far as to say "<span class="spoiler">the enemy of ff5 exdeath was it?</span>"

    As for sim games they're god games as far as i know you dont level up and there isnt an enemy or threat
