Basically as the title says. This is one of my most nostalgiac games. Everyone I knew played Secret of Mana (and I can only image why
) but that's not the game I fell in love with. While I played Secret of Mana first, it never grabbed me as a kid, but thanks to the magic of fan translations I got to play this one, and it totally did. I've beaten the game numerous times, and I just don't get tired of it.
So I decided to share my love for the game with the world! Or the 15 or so people who regularly watch my videos.
That said, I'm bringing in a friend who's never played it. In fact, he's played next to no older generation games. I want to get a good, fresh perspective on the game. I let him play Duran's opening section and showed him a few clips of the game to get him acclimated to it and see if he'd want to record 20-ish hours of the game with me, and he's on board. Funny enough, he even wants to play Duran so I'll be picking someone else for myself as player 1, and I'm having a 3rd party pick the 3rd character.
My question to you is this: Which story is going to make for the most interesting LP to do? I know it's only really going to make a minor difference at the end of the day, but picking the main character is going to be a big deal. I'm shying away from Angela if only because spell casting bogs the gameplay down so much. I don't much like Carlie/Charlotte, but I could deal with her if I really need to so I can get some healing on the team (He's going the gladiator route so no heals there). I'd prefer to play Kevin, Hawk, or Lise. Those are my three favorite characters but I want to make sure the story is entertaining to watch.
Anyway, this has been rambly as all get out because I'm exhausted and I should go to sleep before the sun comes up. It's much appreciated!
