I have been seeing lots of videos for Bulletstorm and I have been hearing a lot of very different opinions about it. Some people can’t think of anything greater than a game that gives you points for how creatively you can shoot a man in his kibbles and bits. However, some people can’t get past the ridiculous machismo that the protagonist spews at an astounding rate.
With people already drawing lines in the sand on whether they love or hate the main character, I decided on this weeks Top 5 Love ’em or Hate ’em Characters.
The dancing robot who just can’t shut up helped us throughout our journey in Gearbox’s over the top shooter Borderlands. Debuting in some pretty funny shorts, “Uprights!”, he helped jump start the hype that grew around Borderlands. Once the game began Claptrap decided his favorite place to be was “all up in your face”.
If your tolerance for hearing “I’m dancing, I’m dancing” and still thinking it is hilarious is high, then you still love Claptrap. Many gamers, however, could not stomach him.
