Best Video Game Protagonists of This Console Generation
Kat, Gravity Rush 2
It’s near impossible to play Gravity Rush without falling in love with its hero, Kat, and her magical cat, Dusty (yes, it’s a little confusing). Using the power to control gravity, Kat serves as a superhero-like figure, flying around the city helping people with problems as large as invading monsters and as simple as delivering newspapers.
While Kat’s good-natured, heroic personality could have made her a bland protagonist, her undeniable charm sets her apart from the rest of her ilk. Kat flies through the world with a childlike wonder and naivety that helps establish Gravity Rush’s warm tone. Whether fighting bad guys or talking to folks in the city, there is well-intended clumsiness in everything that Kat does.
Kat’s bubbly personality mixed with a mysterious and slowly unraveling past make her a fun protagonist and one of gaming’s best superheroes.
