This kind of reminds me of my situation over my love for Chun li(ssf4/HDR) and why I’m not really playing her as much anymore. When i got into HDR in 2008, I just literally didn’t want to play as anyone else besides Chun-Li. I love the damn character, and her outfit, is IMO, not too “skimpy” or show-offy like a bunch of females in games are usually portrayed. It’s perfect for me to go into a fight with a cool looking character i like in that way.
The problem comes from the separation of loving the actual character, and the separation of who I personally play with the best. I played the games more and more, and I eventually broke my own self righteous “code of honor” for Chun to try other characters, and I was very surprised how quick I got adjusted to some of them. SO…long story short, is for my personal case, I will always stand by and be a chunner fan for life, I’ll always play her in whatever game she’s in and if she’s my best character than more power to me. Though if I happen to be better with another character, I don’t feel inclined to deny myself of enjoying that character I play the best with just because I love chun that much…that’s just how I see it.
