What's it like to dislike characters?
Having any actual opinion on characters outside of design is pretty alien to me.
Feel pretty much the same. I say it's a matter of passion, specifically the passion towards stories and the characters within. Your hatred towards some character types scales equally with your love towards other types.
I don't really consider myself a passionate person, so any real opinion I have towards a character often just comes down to "Yeah, this guy pretty cool" or "Okay, he's pretty stupid/annoying". But I can still understand what other people say about them and can say "Yeah, I can see why they don't like this person." I just don't feel like reading through full blown lectures on the extent on how bad that character is.
