Big Blog Fridays #8 - The Mudokon, The Steef and The Gabbit

Posted 03-17-2017 at 08:27 AM by TheManFromMudos
Hello everybody, it's me, TheManFromMudos, and welcome back to Big Blog Fridays. Notice that today's date is actually Friday this time, just to clear that one up. And today, we're back on the topic of Oddworld once again. This week, we're going to be looking at everyone's favourite Oddworld protagonist: Abe. No, Stranger. Munch?

Okay, the fact of the matter is that each and every protagonist in the Oddworld series brings their own unique aspect to the game. Whether you're taking control of your enemies minds, zapping your enemies out of their minds, or shooting your enemies with whatever comes to mind, you're always fighting towards one ultimate goal: the prevelation of nature over industry. But, that's not to say, of course, that you'll have an equal amount of fun with each character. It all depends on what you prefer, after all.

So, my question for you today, as you may have already guessed, is this: Which protagonist is your favourite in the Oddworld series so far? Is it Munch, one-legged amphibian assassin with a grudge to bare? Is it Abe, floor-waxer turned freedom-fighter who's not afraid to stand up for what's right? Or perhaps it's Stranger, badass bounty hunter-turned-liberator of the opressed native races of Western Mudos? Let me know your opinion, and I'll see you next Friday.

Im personally drawn to Stranger as a character the most. Abe and Munch are decent and I like em, but the archetype that Stranger fits of the tough but troubled and unwilling hero appeals to me more than their navet and simplicity. I also like the narrative arc of SW, which develops his character significantly more than either Abe or Munch get in their games.

Munch's design is the most original of the three.

They're all great and have excellent designs, but if it wasn't already obvious, I've got a soft spot for SW.

Munch is seriously the ugly-cutest thing ever, he's like a little fish-pug. I just wanna hug him.
