" I liked xxxxxxx because of his/her character development, personality,design,etc, when i played his game the character grow on me and i´m his fan, so i´m going to main him and try to adapt to his style to be the very best with him!"
***With "gameplay" i mean:
"this character has nice combos, it´s easy to use, it´s top tier, his style of gameplay suits me,etc, MAINED"
Raiden because MGS is one of my most favorite Game Series, and Raiden is one of my two most favorite MGS-characters (the other is Big Boss). So affection, but I also love his gameplay so it's a win-win for me. :D
Affection would be the main reason I choose my mains. Kinda like doing a list. Then, out of those affection picked characters I stick with whoever's gameplay I feel most comfortable with. Whether they're powerful or weak I usually don't care, so long I find them fun to use.
I'm not a slacker. I'm just conserving energy. ~~Some people just can't deal with greatness~~
