Creative Characters and Their Jobs

10 games
This list will help you to argue with people who say that games are a waste of time. Artists, singers, archeologists and a bunch of cultural references are provided. So you can always remember these characters and prove that games taught you something. Probably.

An artist returns home after years of absence in order to finish his best work. Going through a Victorian mansion you will reveal his dark secrets; the first-person view will make you dive into the game's atmosphere. Be ready for dozens of creepy artworks and jump scares. This game is a perfect psychological horror, excellently made by Bloober Team indie studio.

My first thought if I asked about culture in video games. Though the game is quite old and obviously has problems with gameplay, the concentration of puzzles and historical references is off the chain. And, of course, I immediately remember of Tom Hanks who brilliantly played Robert Langdon, an American symbologist, who has to discover a mystery behind da Vinci's works.

Most of the characters in Life is Strange are creative as they study or teach at Blackwell Academy. The protagonist, Max Caulfield is a photographer who experiences visions and has the ability to rewind time. You can also meet a model, another photographer (an evil one this time), an art collector and many other great guys.

A master in many disciplines, Anton Sokolov started his way as an artist and sculptor. The aristocracy of Dunwall paid a lot of money to have a portrait painted by Sokolov. Later he developed marketable skills in science and became an inventor, writer, world traveler and philosopher.

Interesting, that creating Sokolov, the developers took inspiration from several important historical figures, including Leonardo da Vinci, Grigori Rasputin and Nikola Tesla.

They say that teaching is a creative profession too and I can hardly argue. So can Garth from Fable II who will be your mentor throghout the game and tell you how to be a hero. In my opinion, he's also a little a librarian, fond of ancient books and scrolls and a great knowledge keeper.

The mother of the protagonist in this game was an artist famous for her unfinished works. After her death her son goes to the mysterious world of her paintings where he needs to find the unfinished swan. I think, the game is an artwork itself. You just need to add some color in it.

I'm not sure if anybody is interested in the background of characters in fighting games at all... But meet Helena Douglas. She is an opera singer who enters the competition to find the assassin who killed her mother. If you want more references to culture in her character then you shoud know that in Greek mythology Helen was the cause of the Trojan War and also the daughter of Zeus and Leda.

I'm sure that Jaskier comes up to your mind first if we talk about people of art in The Witcher but it's my collection and I prefer Priscilla. Jaskier, of course, is a great poet and narrator. But do you remember The Wolven Storm song? It's perfect in any language and makes me cry every time I hear it.

If I have to include a famous archeologist in this list (and I really have), I better choose Indiana Jones than Lara Croft or Nathan Drake. At least, he is a professor, not just a tomb raider. And, you know, the hat matters.

The entire game is dedicated to the protection of cultural heritage. The story is set in Greece where you work as an assistant at a museum and investigate the case about forging ancient vases and jewelry. Every character of this game is connected to culture one way or another. For example, the girl on the picture, Niobe, is an art expert.
