Leftover Pizza

Which one to pick and why?

Recommended Posts

Leftover Pizza

Having trouble to create a poll here. As soon as I want to fill in an option, it boots me.

 

So, since I'm having a bit of trouble deciding which one of my 2 created characters has to be the one I keep playing. I like both, but can't decide so I let the people speak. Which one should it be and why?

 

Choices are:

 

My native character Mo Giyè:

 

Red-Dead-Redemption-2-20191110040556.jpg

 

or my Mexican gringo Chavez:

 

Red-Dead-Redemption-2-20191110200713.jpg

 

I'll decide next Sunday, nov. 18th, according to any votes in here...

Considering there is nothing much to use for my Native, I take that as a "vote" for the Mexican. They both share the same pool of goodies, obviously, but Chavez can use a lot more stuff and look authentic.

I really like the native characters you guys have made. I don't see why your native guy can't also use the stuff the mexican does. Charles used guns and such didn't he?

I like to keep outfits as close to the character's cultural themes and there just isn't much to use on Native characters much.

I'm gonna be biased and put by vote on the Native character. 

 

 

 

But it all narrows down to which you feel happiest being. Both are pretty boss looking characters.

 

 

Chavez actually looks like he could pass as a native in the appropriate attire. So it could be 'best of both worlds' if you felt happier being Chavez.

Mo Giyê is more of a survivor, a warrior and a hunter. Chavez loves the bottle and is more of a YOLO kind of character, making money by trading and collecting, but mainly using it for all sorts of pleasurable reasons. Chavez also likes dressing up more than Mo Giyè does. 

I'm not sure if Chavez could pass for a Native, mainly due to his chin. But perhaps that could be fixed. I like the "best of both worlds' idea.

Your NA character, it's too good to not be your main.

my votes for the mexican,he looks more part of the red dead world,you could always lose the stash and go native. why i choose this, your native is described as a hardened veteran, yet looks like a 15 year old. your mexican on the other hand, has that raw part.

 

@rockstar:more character slots asap

Yo, Bro. I'ma gonna vote for your Native American. However may I ask if that's closer to your own cultural heritage? I made a character of color, well, because I'M a person of color & it felt like a pretty ok representation of me. (very hard to perfectly re-create your self in video games).

Interesting question. We're all persons of color, though I'm one of those with less pigment they call caucasians. What's in a name...
As far as I know, there is some native heritage in our family, but it goes waaaay back and doesn't show on my appearance. 
My choice of characters do relate to me, though in a different way. I've never liked being 'the majority' much. So I pick the less common appearances almost by default. 
There weren't many NA characters at launch, so I created one for that reason (and also for a political reason I won't go into here ;) ).

 

side note: I'd never try recreating myself in a video game, because I hate to see my digital me die due to my own stupidity 😂

Tough decission. I'd say Chavez because making a good character out of a mixed race Mexican guy seems harder than making a cool native one (which isn't easy either, I guess).

I've seen some cool natives out there, but cool Mexican bandits are a rarity, and none as cool as Chavez.

That's a tough one to counter. 

 

CS on clear votes

 

Native American - 3

Mexican  - 3 (+1 biased wife vote)

To be honest, no, I am not using 2 accounts or profiles. I just rebuild my characters in the creator, but don’t wanna keep doing that. One of the 2 will have to bite the dust (or resurfaces when a second character slot is added, which will never happen).

I'd stick with the native character just because i hate how R* is trying so hard to gloss over the bit where early Americans murdered and raped everything that moved, never forget.
The mexican is just that, a mexican, the native character is supposed to be there and put all damn murican's in their place.

Although I totally agree with you on the political stance, I really don't want to mix that into my gameplay. (on a side note: whatever applied to Native Americans, looks like becoming the future for Mexicans. So both characters would fit a role in that area).

 

I'm looking into creating a mixed character that could suit both cultural ancestries now, btw.

Chavez passing as a Native American (because of the daily challenge and to look at "the best of both worlds" idea. 

 

Hmmmmm.......

On first glance, go with the flashy outfit.  :alien:

Upon further reflection, Chavez fits the scenario of the time better: the last of the free west, civilization encroaching more, pushing the independent spirits to drink and despair.

Of course, either could fit that niche.

I like them both, so tough decision for you... but FYI: a "gringo" is not a Mexican or Latino.
