Put me down for 25, Your Evilness. Got one cooking that barely fits the contest description.

As I said earlier, my motivations for the suggestion came down to the following dichotomy: (1) Make a Hitler game in which you play as a character who actively murders Jews and Gays and many others just because your character is an evil cunt. (2) Make a Hitler game in which you do not play as someone actively murdering Jews and Gays and many others just because the character is an evil cunt, but rather for some other reason (which a good writer would figure out). The entire fucking idea of making a game in which you play as Hitler is insulting and distasteful from the get go.

This was the only point I was making this entire stupid debate.

Gabriel in "The Prophesy" is a different character than Gabriel in "Legion," and both of those are different characters than the Gabriel in the film "Gabriel." Yet decent writers were able to flesh out stories in an alternative universe based on these different characters who shared the same name and background of the Biblical Gabriel. Likewise a good writer could flesh out a story in an alternative universe with a character who shares the same name amd background of the historical Hitler.

Lol how can I forget the Arch Angel Gabriel? He has been so many different characters in film and other art that it boggles the mind why I brought up Jesus in the first place. Gabriel has been heroes, villains and everything in between. Same Biblical "character," but an entirely different character time and time again.

There are, however, traditional trends, and when a portrayal is "out of character" of these traditions, they are often sufficiently different to be different characters who merely share the same name and back story.

I am referring to all media regarding Jesus, including Biblical, historical, and ficticious works. There is variance among the Jesuses. Satan, likewise, is many characters in many films, novels, and religious works. For example in the Prophesy film saga he isbpresented as a bitter, hurting character, while in others the embodiment of evil and malice.

That's a false equivalence, because some of the different Jesuses in Christian literature do different things, live different lives, and have different personality traits.

Two interpretations which vary sufficiently from each other are different characters.

Regardless, a CYOA story in which Hitler is the main character is already a stupid idea. But we still offer suggestions because coming up with ways to make a stupid idea work is an emtertaining challenge. A good writer can make a stupid idea work. Let's say my constraints on the Hitler idea is stupid (preferring a compelled Hitler to a character where the player engages in genocide because he's evil). A good writer can make it work.
