Good Grief! I’m perfect for the lead in an Adventure Game.
I see you have a new nonsonnet. (I hope I'm not terribly out of date. Sigs can go unnoticed for quite a while, but I do pay attention to yours. Sometimes.)

That would depend on who the designer was, though. Tim Schafer has famously stated that the best main character is the coolest person in the game world. But in 90% of games (adventure games, but AFAIK in most other genres too) your observation fits.

It is indeed a new non-sonnet. Until recently his signature displayed the one about having everything for the perfect adventure game but a plot.

Changed less than 12 hours ago. Just after I posted this poem. I need to write some more as I only have one in reserve now.
You have to get fairly generic within the signature constraints. Tim Schafer does write some pretty cool and interesting characters.

You could get a paintbrush and some paint and do it yourself.

Why not try turning a light on instead.

Sheesh, I can't believe you people need such simple advice to get things rolling. Stones are more pro-active.
