Bring Me To Life

I thought up of this game that I believe has the potential to be fun and interesting, even insightful.

It’s called, well you know what it’s called because of the title. No, it’s not called “well you know what it’s called because of the title”. It is called, “Bring Me To Life.”

The whole idea behind this is the deep understanding we think we have (whether we do or not) of characters we see, read, and hear (or hear of).
On a level of personal experience, I have often first thought of a fictional character before an actual existing person when given a description of someone.
This game is all about who (specifically fictional characters) you think of, given different characteristic(s).

I will put down a list of titles, such as “lawyer”. Using the title (or adjective) given, the player lists down the first fictional character that comes to mind.

Example: For lawyer, an answer could be “Saul Goodman” or “Harvey Specter”.

Please don’t be afraid to post comments. You can post as a guest and I promise you that I’m unable to see your email and so is everyone else who visits the page. You won’t receive spam either.

If you would like to post the game to your blog, let me know and I’ll tag you in my post.

In a few days, I’ll post my choices too. If you have any other interesting character recommendations, please let me know those as well.

Anyways, here’s the list. Please participate.
