Happy Friday Players! GamersUnitedGG will be launching our 2nd Community Event on October 1st. We are starting a Video Game Reality House and the interview process for the characters to be accepted is brutal. You can help us narrow down the characters that will be admitted into Season 1. To participate, post a blog […]
Luna at GamersUnitedGG has opened submissions for contestants in what can only be described as a Big Brother role play series with video game characters. The fact that Channel 5 has today announced the end of Big Brother makes it either completely appropriate or completely ironic that my submission for this contest should also be published today. I don’t care, though. If I wanted to watch a group of people living in a house together, I’d just play The Sims. Which I do, sometimes. But my submission isn’t for a Sim. No, it’s the Deus Ex Universe’s Adam Jensen.
Jensen is a Matt Bellamy lookalike and espionage agent who’s work includes the anti-terror unit Task Force 29 and global hacktivist group the Juggernaut Collective. As the protagonist of a non-linear, choose-your-own-adventure game with a moral code determined by the player, Jensen has a multi-sided personality, which provides lots of material for a competition of this nature. He’s adaptable to different situations due to the ability to be anyone he needs to be. Side characters can count on him to complete quests for them (eventually), which makes his a worthy ally to have during tasks. His ability to improvise the various methods of going about these quests has given him an agile aptitude and as a result, he can understand that there’s always another way of doing something (an underrated way of thinking). As an intelligence gatherer, he also appreciates the value of finding out everything that can be learned, which makes a mission much simpler to grasp by revealing all the options from the beginning. His childhood experiences, particularly his relationship with his mother, has imbued into him a desire to help others – in other words, he’s a real team player. Jensen has a strong sense of loyalty and is willing to trust someone if they’re prepared to reciprocate that trust. In terms of skill, almost his entire body has been augmented with cybernetics, effectively making him superhuman. Theoretically, there’s nothing he can’t do. All he needs is find the way the right modification and manage his power cells efficiently. He can even scan someone’s personality in order to calculate the best way of interacting with them.
And if none of that convinces you, there’s always this:
