You main your character because of "gameplay" or "affection"?

Affection, though I've grown to appreciate Jak and Ratchet gameplay-wise as well.
You'll never win!

Mostly affection.

Although I've been playing Raiden all day, mostly for gameplay, partly for potential affection.

Watched a bunch of MGR gameplay yesterday, suddenly interested in Raiden. Read somewhere there's gonna be a demo on the 13th, can't wait.

Sackboy because he's unique and I'm a LBPhead. :)

As with any fighter, I gravitate to characters I "like" first, but I tend to stick with whomever I'm good with, or have a comfortable time with.

If its a series, I tend to start out with my best character from the last game, and move around a big to find a good fit. Sometimes, I'll main someone new for a while, but I tend to go back to whatever I'm really good at, and that usually tends to be a long-running character.

In a new game like this, I'll probably wind up maining the random button until something really clicks. Sly is my closest to a main so far, though.

Big Daddy for both reasons.

You mean Mr. Bubbles. Who I like because of affection and he is the most interesting character of the game.

I main Big Daddy because of the Nostalgia he brings me from a game I enjoyed throughout, hes a scary BAMF, and I love that hes one of the biggest underdogs, if not tied with Fat Princess.

I main my characters half out of affection and half out of if they will suit my gameplay style. Heihachi fits into my theory pretty well.

E. Cole, and soon to be Kat, for both.
