The original kotor game is the best Star Wars content ever created, it’s the entire original trilogy in a game where you experience what happens

Revan is ultimately the greatest foil of anikan he followed almost the same path but he did it for such different reasons
Revan was a man who excepted the burden of the galaxy onto himself, he was so selfless that he was willing to betray his own ideals and everything he stood for, for the sake of the galaxy.
Anakin was so consumed by his desires and attachments, his selfishness. They followed the same path but the reasons was so different.

Plus he is without a doubt one of the strongest characters in Star Wars ever, as a Sith Lord he is one of the strongest ever and the same followed as a Jedi.

One thing I find fascinating is that revan was ultimately the only person we ever see to use the light and dark side at the same time, which while it seems impossible I do not believe it is. Because the light is following the will of the force and the dark is warping it to your will, Revan did both you can argue two points, he warped the force till it’s goals aligned with his own or more realisticly, Revan followed the will of the force in a way thst the force cannot support.

If you do a rundown of Revan in another video, could you try and tailor it for both fans of the games and those who have not played them. When they came out, I was but a learner, so I missed them and in recent years I (somehow, shamefully) haven't made the time to play them. I'd love a video from you about Revan, but avoiding any huge spoilers would be greatly appreciated

About the game:
Like you, not only did I like the fact that it was a Star Wars game that felt like one of the better books (or even movies), it used the d20 mechanics of 3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons (or more specifically, the d20 version of the Star Wars RPG that was also out at the time).

I did two playthroughs: One full on Light Side, and one full Dark Side (although I didn't kill all my companions, so maybe I should play it again ^_^). I loved that Bioware did that with this game, and with the Mass Effect series later (with Paragon and Renegade, and I sorely missed this system in ME: Andromeda).

Revan is awful. He's nothing more than a fan stand-in for fans who want to play with all the Force toys while ignoring Lucas' established internal logic.
And how can you judge what kind of character he is when he is different for every player?
Terrible character.

There were no critical comments about Revan in this video. Honestly, am I the only one here to thought his "dark side" path was stupid? Like telling Bastilla you enjoyed watching her suffer? Honestly, what is the point of that other than being "evil" for evil's sake. The light side options are also their own extreme. Yes, there were good things about Revan like the character design and overall story, but the dialog writing is absolute trite ruining so much potential for the character. Revan is overrated as hell.

I could never get into Revan as a character. I’ve always thought of him as more of a player avatar. I just don’t get attached to characters like that. I prefer Kreia or Bastila over Revan.

It pissed me off when SWTOR canonized Revan as male. She was always female to me when I was younger cuz I always played the female PC in KOTOR. At least the Exile from KOTOR 2 got canonized as female

The "Revan" book was written to boost the SWTOR game, made by Bioware, which does a "great" job at diminishing and destroying Revan's mythos and character in order to boost the game's original characters (mainly the Emperor). Basically, Bioware used the "my character is better than Revan" approach, but they couldn't do a good job at making the Emperor imposing, so they dumbed down Revan to make the Emperor look better… They fixed that over time and expansions and the Emperor became a good character… Too bad they had to walk all over Revan before they did.

So, if you start with that book, of course you're going to have a negative experience.

Revan is cool. he used to be my favorite character. I never played the game, but I learned his story by watching Antoine Bandele's Star Wars Versus series and reading the book.

I love Revan but kind of have my own head cannon as far as his arc goes. I always loved the idea that he never really considered himself a sith. His "fall" was a product of his becoming hardened and jaded through the the Mandalorian Wars. After defeating Mandalor the Ultimate and finding out about the Sith Emperor, he decides for himself that the Republic and Jedi order as is would stand no chance against the Sith Empire. In order to protect it, he had to conquer it. I just never really liked the idea that he was brainwashed.

Dooku is more like Revan in the sense of turning to the dark side to fulfil a "greater good", although in Dooku's case he was deluded.

A 4-season Disney plis series on Revan would be fantastic.
Season 1 – Revan attempting to capture Bastilla and defeat the Republic but ends Malak turning on him in the final climactic battle
Season 2 – Taris, Dantooine and Tatooine
Season 3 – Kashyyk, Manaan and Leviatan
Season 4 – Korriban, Rakata Prime and Star forge
Season 5+ – The Exile gets 2 seasons and Revan gets an additional 2 of him search for the hidden enemy once his memories come back before one final season where Surik and Revan unite to face Vitiate

My favorite Revan is the Revan in the Bane book. Bane creator of the rule of two created it off Revan Sith teaching. I such a well respected way to use Revan without ruining Revan, Unless your Revan was never dark side in the first place. It also makes sense the holocron considing what the Jedi did to him. Unless it was always Revan goal to repair the Jedi in the future by a full reset/or see how the sith truly end. With a Character like Revan I wouldn't put it past him.

Revan doesn't earn a score. Revan's game does. If I were to give Revan, herself, a score, it would be tinged with the character being a fan stand-in. Revan's not a bad character in the way that Rey is, but Revan can do all of the things and is a bit ridiculous. Even when Thor describes the story of when he realized how great of a character Revan was by talking to his brother, he doesn't discuss why the character is great. He describes why the game is great.

Revan is one of the best characters in SW. Sadly many people dont understand him, his character and motivations. Everything you have to know are through the games KOTOR I & II… Everything else is pure garbage… Not to mention the abomination from SWTOR.
If you pay attention in Kotor II Kreia tells you everything you have to know about Revan.

though I would appreciate maybe one or two of the other, less praising comments to be picked too, because the comments you ultimately chose made me wonder how the hell Revan didn't score higher (and I am one of those who definitely didn't give him an A)…

While Meetra Surik is my #1 favorite Jedi, I can't seem to keep Revan out of my personal top 5 Jedi, he has to be up there with Obi-Wan, Ashoka, and Kyle Katarn, a character who fell to the darkside doing the right thing for the right reasons, and showed what happens when a idealistic Jedi becomes exposed to the true horrors of Total War. I'd love to see a show about him that has something of Joseph Conrads Heart of Darkness in it: You can not remain naive and innocent when this much horror is happening around you.
How would Jedi deal? Would they become inured to suffering? Above it, uncaring and unsymapthetic observes to whom human life just becomes another number? Would they burn with a desire to excact retribution on those who destroyed lives they swore to protect? Was suicicide a problem in the ranks of the Jedi in Revans army? Jedi pushed to the point where, unable to protect the worlds in their care, they chose to end it all than live with the shame?
And above it all stands the slowly darkening commander, Revan, at the other end of the river, in darkness, and even Meetra and Malak can't truly reach him anymore.
