    You know what I love? I love that the doctor looks like an adult. Even in the cartoony style, you can tell he’s a grown-up, not a kid. At my age, that’s a big plus, lol. There are younger players, of course, so hopefully when all are revealed, the candidates will cover a broad range of taste.

      I too appreciate it. I enjoy games with romance, but I really appreciate having interactions with adults not kids all the time. Likely why I love FFXII so much is that many of the characters were older. Auron from FFX was my favorite there too and that was when I was in early college. Maybe I’ve always preferred older characters.

        Rick looks pretty grown-up as well, this time. I feel a bit bad for grown-up players who prefer female candidates…they’re VERY cute, probably cuter than the boys by a good margin, but they look like adults even less often than the guy characters do, imo. I’m supportive of having young and young-looking candidates, since this is a series intended to be family friendly including for fairly young kids… I just really like a variety, so that everyone has something that appeals to them. There are a lot of age groups playing this type of game by now, so it’s great when we see a good selection 🙂

        I wish I could say who I would have liked as a kid…I didn’t start playing the series until ANB, lol. (I tried a bunch of the older ones, but I’m more a fan of the more complex newer games that stuff the game with goals and makers and more crops and etc. I like to have to multitask and plan ahead, I guess.)
