    Alright nerds, time to get real here. What video game characters did you have a crush on in your formative years?

    Anyway, I'm gonna go a bit beyond that... well, a LOT beyond that.

    In my early teens, I had a big crush on Tifa from FF7, Quistis from FF8, Ada Wong from RE2, and Cammy from SF. Quistis being the only one I still hold in high regard. But that's not to say I hold the others in low regard. They're still great.

    As I became an adult, my crushes evolved to Tharja from Fire Emblem and Josephine from Dragon Age Inquisition. The only recent character I've had crush on is Saeko from Yakuza 7. I was just in love w/ her while I played the game. Some of the NPC love interests were arguably better waifu material and more my personal preference, but something about Saeko just captivated me. It really was her writing, imo.

    ...also, kinda A2 from Nier Automata. And sure, from over the years, also Ramlethal, Hisako, Mian, Leona, Chun-Li, and Taki from various fighting games. Though all of these mentioned after Saeko aren't really "crushes"...

    I used to have a huge crush on Reno from FF7 but he's really not my type anymore. Growth, I guess?

    They intentionally wrote Aeris in a way so that young gamers would develop crushes on her.

    Yeah, she's probably one of my first experiences with "Manic Pixie Dream Girl". Even before that trope was a thing, there was a want in life, as a shy introvert in high school; that some hot chick would feel inclined to take me under her wing and push me out of my comfort zone. The trope probably existed in movies for a time, but she maybe the first or at least one of the earliest examples in a video game. Maybe that's why she's so divisive

    But she was far from my first video game crush. My first was probably Tao from the original Shining Force. Hot elf girl with pink hair, early powerful destructive magic, and a rad attitude lol And I was maybe ... 10?
