I was always baffled at the uncanny detail that video game manufacturers used when creating a game. I can reach back into my memory banks and pull out instances such as the day I bought Street Fighter II for the Super Nintendo Console. I remember looking through the character profiles (and after several minutes of awe over Chun Li’s measurements) I noticed that they even went so far as to include blood type.
Blood type! Wow, I don’t even know my own blood type, but I know Dhalsim, M. Bison, and E. Honda’s blood type.
Until today it just didn’t make sense, and I let it go. But in this article I realized that there is a significance to blood type. The concept was Japan born in 1927, and hit the pop culture in 1971. I don’t know my own blood type, but I’m guessing from this article that I’m type O, the outgoing / expressive / passionate type. Apparently type B’s are getting a bad rep for their “strong personalities”. Regardless, I’m scrapping that “what’s your sign” pickup line for the new “what’s your blood type” *eyebrows moving up and down*.
