The best thing about playing an RPG or most games in general is having the opportunity to create your own character who will be representing “you” during your time with a game. The possibilities are literally endless. You can either create a likeness of you to play as in the game or you can create an entirely different character who looks nothing like you. It’s your choice. When you’ve got options at your disposal, there’s no telling how long you’ll spend on the character creation screen until you get your character just right.
A few weeks ago, I was playing around with the Saints Row IV: Inauguration Station to prepare for the latest installment of the Saints game. This time the Saints are moving all the way up to the White House where your character is now the President of the United States. If you have ever played any of the Saints games, the level of absurdity knows no bounds which is part of its charm for this series. The game hardly takes itself seriously. It’s meant to be enjoyed and laugh at the craziness this game throws at you.
