I never felt Snow was depicted that way. Never once did the phrase "Dude must smoke alotta weed" pop into my head in the entire time I played XIII. He seems too focused and in shape. --- Stick that on your barby, shrimp! - Johnny Cage
Seriously, Snow is the worst stereotype of a dumb stoner/surfer white guy there is. It's appalling. How can SE depict us American hippies in such a negative light?
He's far from stoner lmao. He only seem way too focused in both games. And I believe he was meant to be dumb blonde. But I doubt they were thinking of something like a surfer because Noel and older Hope look more like surfers. --- Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!
XIII had lots of rather overused archetypes as far as character presentation for the protagonists went, but the characters were explored enough to prevent them from being solid stereotypes. What was more stereotypical was probably the villains such as barthandelus or however that name is spelled.
At this point though, it almost seems like Square is attempting to create a conspiracy around the number 13, given how they keep trying to enforce pointless symbolism regarding it. --- The official Penelo of the Duodecim Boards. "I'll be going too. Every good sky pirate has a partner, right?"
