Yesterday we looked at my favourite villain in gaming. Today, we return to the safety of gaming heroes, protagonists and good guys.

Day 18: Favourite Protagonist

Jade from Beyond Good and Evil

Beyond Good and Evil currently has a cult following. It recently received (another) sequel trailer at 2017’s E3 event. And I love the main character, Jade.

Jade is a tomboyish photo journalist, who lives in a lighthouse with a bunch of animal people and Pey’j, her adoptive uncle. When the lighthouse is attacked at the start of the game, Jade goes on a game long mission to rescue the kids whilst also investigating the DomZ, the main enemy of the game.

What I love most about Jade is her fierce loyalty to her friends and family. She goes out of her way to not only rescue them but help bring down the DomZ for good.  I like how she plays – martial arts and photography are what she is good at, and what she sticks to throughout the game. Her intentions and motives remain the same throughout the story, and are always kept at the forefront of her mind. She never forgets what she set out to do.

It’s hard to explain why I love Jade as a protagonist, without explaining the game and plot. I thoroughly recommend finding and playing a copy of BG&E, and discovering Jade for yourself.

Tomorrow it’s all about location, location, location.
