Nerd Wars! Who is Your Gaming Doppelganger?

Have you ever been playing a video game and found yourself relating strangely well with one of the characters. Has it ever gotten to the point where they say things you might say or act in ways that you might act? I think we’ve all experienced this to some degree in our lives and for this week’s round of Nerd Wars! we want to know who your gaming doppelganger is. 


For someone who lives in New York, has a thick stache, and works as a plumber, it would be safe to say your gaming doppelganger is probably Mario. Maybe some of you like to consume anything you can get your mouth around. If that’s the case, you’re probably a Kirby clone. The possibilities are endless. You’re only restricted by the power of your imagination.


Feel free to have some fun with. The more absurd the comparison, the better. This a more abstract round of Nerd Wars!, but it’ll be hilarious to see the answers you folks deliver. Let the doppling begin!


      1. Classic, of course. Reboot Lara’s a little too whiny for my taste. She may be more human with real feelings and all that but I prefer the no-nonsense sociopath of the older games. 😉

  1. I don’t remember a character looking a lot like me, but I definitely found Milla from Tales of Xillia to be great as an avatar for me in that game. She said what I wanted to say (and was, in fact, often telling the screen at the time), and always moved the story along (another thing some main characters can’t seem to do, much to my frustration). Plus, she quotes books and is some kind of aerial magic swordswoman…
    That last one still needs to be added to my list of skills.

    1. Well with a little practice I’m sure you’d be a fantastic magical aerial swordswoman… Whatever that is exactly haha.

  2. Eh, I don’t have a doppleganger unfortunately. I don’t look like any character… But if we go on personality I would be somewhere between GLaDOS from the Portal series, and Deadpool due to never showing my face on teh internetz, and I’m just an overly sarcastic person.

  3. Sabin, from FF6! I am a younger brother to a self described “ladies man”, and I definitely became more built than he did!

  4. Unfortunately, my gaming double is the kid from Mutant Mudds. I looked just like him when I was younger: Blond hair, dumb haircut, goofy glasses.

    I’m sad now… 😦
