Day 5: Game character you feel you are most like?
I know exactly which video game character I’m most like…
I feel like Michael De Santa from Grand Theft Auto V. When I played GTA V, I was in my previous job. An administration job that was slowly grinding me down. The parallels between me and Michael then were worrying. Little sleep, struggling to relate to people, feeling a bit old and out of place. Plus I spent most my time wearing shirt and pants for work, so I had the ‘business casual’ look going too.
I was even starting to organise my work like Michael planned heists with Lester. Sadly, I wasn’t allowed an office in an abandoned building and a big planning board.
Nearly two years on, I still feel the similarities. We both mean well, but can sometimes be insensitive. We’re both nostalgic for the past – Michael with classic films and me with retro games. We can both be grumpy but very protective. Not sure I’d go as far as Michael with the jet ski level, but I’d like to think I’d be close.
…just to clarify though, I haven’t killed anyone and haven’t robbed any banks. Yet….
