R: 4 / I: 1
What makes us love certain characters so much? Doesn't matter who or what it is, just why we love them. Yoshi is a lovable dinosaur that Mario fans know for eating enemies and being a trusty companion.
Gondola is basically a walking teddy bear that does nothing but observe the environments he finds himself in, only interacting on occasion.
Duke Nukem is a loud, obnoxious, testosterone-filled, steroid-devouring individual who's obsessed with drinking, women, and kicking ass, but folks love him for it.
Why is that? Do you think it appeals to certain parts of our personality, or maybe it's simpler than that?
