I haven’t played Marc Echo’s Getting Up (but I’ve always kinda wanted to) but I have played some Jet Set Radio. Thinking that maybe Zach would make a good graffiti artist.
He doesn’t have much to say most of the time, so he’s got some other non-verbal ways to express himself. Or probably more that he’s not one to express himself person-to-person. If he has something to say it would have to come out through art or music or action. If he cares about you, he may not say it, but he’ll show up to support.
But yeah, between the “expressing yourself through art” and the athleticism required, it seems like it might be a good fit.
Except for the part where I think he wouldn’t be very good at art or music. He finds other ways to express himself, but he doesn’t often have much to say, so he’s not super practiced at those skills. It’s a source of frustration for him.
