Favorite Characters

Hello blog readers!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and had fun solving the weekend puzzle (which I got to participate in!). Today I’ve spent the whole day uploading trailers from all of our games onto various video sharing websites in order to make them as accessible as possible. But, watching all those trailers over and over again, it got me thinking about games that I haven’t played in years! There’s so many great characters and personalities that the writers at HI have thought of! And since a lot of you guys recently participated in the Nancy Drew cameo contest, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite characters from Nancy Drew past with you guys:

Professor Hotchkiss – She is so funny and exuberant and high-spirited, it’s hard not to love her. She’s completely herself and not afraid to be exactly who she wants to be.

Tex Britten – Maybe it’s because I’ve secretly always wanted to live on a ranch or because I, too, am an animal enthusiast, but I love how Tex is basically more comfortable with his farm animals than with people.

JJ Ling – JJ is incredibly comfortable with herself which, in a world where not everyone looks like what you’d imagine as a model, is refreshing. Plus I love her accent and how she’s always making up stories!

Any who, I also want to hear about your favorite characters! But if you post it on the message board, make sure it stays Nancy Drew related!

Out of the characters you listed, my favorie has to be Tex. (I have no idea why)

Some of my favorite ND characters would have to be Henry Bolet, Lou Talbot, Elliot Chen, Lamont Warrick, Gilbert Buford, Holt Scotto, Henrik (couldn't spell his last name right even if I did remember what it was), Enrico Tazza, Katie Firestone, and Jenna Deblin. (But those are only the ones I can think of right now)

@ anon1 - You know, I do have an account on the message board. Although I don't speak up very much, so you may not recognize me. ^.^ I'm not sure about Summer.

@ anon2 - You know, that's quite the list. I'm impressed you could remember so many! I think my favorite character ever is Eustacia Andropov. I just thought she was too funny (even though she's only a phone friend.)

I have an account too but I've had it since before I started working here (I've been an avid Nancy Drew fan for years)

If it isn't any trouble what Name like Jessica or whatever do you go by? Or what is yor username? Because I would like to do a PP with you. Also do you two get paid?

@ dinonicolini - Loulou is definitely a popular Nancy pal. She and Coucou seem to be stealing a bit of the votes!

@ anon - Well I can't quite speak for Summer, but I don't have a lot of board presence, unfortunately. I might just keep my MB username a secret for the time being, but Summer may certainly enjoy a partner play.

Both she and I are employed by HER, but not specifically for the blog. The blog is more of a fun thing we do for you all.
