Hi fellow readers and bloggers. It’s October, and Kim at Later Levels will be rolling out October’s Question of the Month once again. Incase you missed it, last month I submitted my entry as the merchant from Resident Evil 4 as the most memorable video game NPC.
Given the return of the illusive franchise with the new hit 3DS release of Metroid: Samus Returns in September, I was in a pretty Metroid-ish mood. My favourite franchise is back and in good fashion. It inspired me to suggest to Kim for October’s QOTM, and that is…
If you needed a mercenary, which video game character would you hire?
As you guessed it, being in the Metroid-ish mood I was in, I only had one person in mind, and that was…
That’s right, our favourite galactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran, and as tradition dictates, here’s why in 100 words.
Note: for the purposes of this post, I’ll be referring to Samus as a mercenary. Although she’s official stated to be a bounty hunter, her missions and actions on most situations put her in the role of a mercenary versus a bounty hunter.
“Samus Aran’s track record through the Metroid series more than speaks for itself. Travelling all over the galaxy, she’s done it all from taking out key members of the Space Pirates on multiple missions to conquering the haunting creation that was Metroid Prime and Dark Samus and overcoming a seemingly invincible virus in Fusion. Let’s not forget her mission to SR388 where she also exterminated the entire Metroid threat. If you have a bone to pick with someone, or something, look no further then hiring Samus Aran. She has more than enough tools and experience to take on any mission.”
Don’t forget to check back in on Friday at Later Levels blog for her official post and see all the other participants entries. Have fun casting your vote!
If you needed a mercenary, who would you hire? Would it be Samus? Or would you go with someone else? Let’s discuss in the comments!
