There are many types of character defects, so I will list a few to get you started. The “C” in “character defects” is a “C” for “cunt.” I have had many friends come up to me and say, “Well, you’re a character defect.” This is a phrase I do not like.
The C in character defects is a C for cunt.
Cunt is one of the most common words in the English language. It is not actually a word, but an insult where the person being insulted is told to “shut the fuck up” or “fuck off.” I was recently told by the director of a TV show that in the words of the character, “The word cunt is the worst word in the English language.
Character defects are the second most common mistake that we’re seeing on TV lately (and the first one is The Big Bang Theory), and it’s a common one because so many characters have them. There is no real way to “fix” character defects because the only way to fix them is to fix the character. The character is the problem.
Character defects can make our characters seem like assholes and make us want to punch them. They’re the reason they have this stupid haircut. They’re the reason they think they’re better than everyone else. They’re the reason they can’t be friends with anyone else. They’re the reason they get mad when we tell them that they’re not the smartest person in the room.
We have a lot of characters that are clearly character defects. It’s our job to make them into better versions of themselves and this can be a lot of fun. Sometimes, though, character defects can be a real pain in the ass. We all know a good many of them. The best part of these videos is that we have them all and we know what’s wrong with every single one of them.
The bad news is that there is a ton of them. Each video has at least one villain. The good news is that you can see how each character is going to react and whether or not you can have a fun time with it.
It’s not just the bad guys who need to show their defects though. Characters who are not who they seem to be are also prone to defecting into their own versions. In Deathloop, we have a bunch of super baddies who are not who they seem to be. I know that I’m prone to this kind of thing, but it’s just an example.
You see, there is a difference between “defecting” into the character we know and “defecting into” one of the characters we don’t. If you’re a fan of the Deathloop series then you will know the difference between a villain that is who they seem to be and a character that looks like they might be who they seem to be.
I mentioned this in the introduction, but the difference is that the villain in our game is not who they seem to be. In fact, the only thing that really stands out is that they’re actually not that bad. After all, there is a reason the characters in the series are so good. Let’s just leave that aside for now.
