How you play video games reveals you character

I stumbled across this photo project by a photographer called Mr. Toledano.

For this series of photos Toledano says: “I wanted to take portraits of people that would reveal a hidden part of their character. So I had them play video games.”

That brings up the question: How can video games possibly demonstrate anything about your character?

    “How can video games demonstrate anything about your character?”

    It certainly brings out the obsessive-compulsive tendencies of my “better half!”

    “I have to find a save spot!”
    “Kill him, kill him!”
    “What the f–k!? This game is cheating!”

    The house could be on fire and I wonder sometimes if we’d evacuate in time because there wasn’t a “save spot.” sigh. That’s character demonstration for ya!

    I HATE it when games will not let you save whenever and wherever you want. I was playing one game that would sometimes go into 30-40 minute long cut scenes where you couldn’t skip, couldn’t pause and couldn’t save. Then it would put you back in the characters shoes, with a save point on the horizon, but kick you into ANOTHER 20 minute long cut scene as you were walking to it.


    The beautiful wife doesn’t always understand, especially when you cannot tell her how much longer you have to watch some Japanese CG anime movie before you can save and she can watch Dr. 90210.
