Am I the only one that likes asshole, dickhead Ratchet from the first game?

Am I the only one that likes asshole, dickhead Ratchet from the first game? Or at the very least I don't have a problem with him.
Just me?

    There was this one scene where Clank falls on top of him, Ratchet aggressively brushes him off and says something to the tone of "get off me, idiot" as the camera zooms in to a sad Clank. I thought it was a bit too extreme, but I really like jerkass Ratchet other than that.

      Ratchet being nicer to Clank in future games makes sense but Insomniac got a weird amount of pushback from making Ratchet kind of a dick even though growing past that was part of his character arc

      That was right after they got dropped into a pit to be murdered after Ratchet told Clank shit was suHispanicious. Plus that was basically the point where Ratchet became actively hostile to Clank for a fair chunk of the game

      >go back to Blackwater City
      >it's just a few rounds on the multiplayer map
      They did 3 so dirty, I wonder how much different the single player game would if they never added multiplayer

        It never registered to me that it was a multiplayer map. I thought that was a pretty cool set-piece and now its been ruined. Thanks.

    I liked his change in character up until a couple games before the reboot

    It always confused me that his voice actor was changed because of Ratchets poor reception. I thought he did a great job both with asshole Ratchet and chill Ratchet
    James Arnold Taylor does a great Ratchet too but the change always surprised me

      He was always cool. Always liked his voice actor too.

    no, he reforms at the end anyway, almost like a character arc. 2 and 3 were a reasonable redirection based on what he learned in 1, the real problem was the future series where they went WAY to hard in the opposite direction and made him too nice.

      it makes sense that ratchet would become more respectful and friendly towards clank since he's come to appreciate their relationship at the end of 1, but i find the complete flip in roles jarring. In the first game Ratchet is pretty streetsmart, he's cynical and skeptical of a lot of people, whereas clank is very naive and falls for traps. In the 2 its completely reversed with ratchet being the dumb guy who believes everything. I guess it sort of works since hes hype to be a commando in a new galaxy but idk it felt bizarre going from one to the next.

      I feel like people really have a hard time with characters with flaws so he ended up getting sanitized pretty hard.

        It literally is, with Ratchet being passive with "Fizzwidget" fucking things up for them while Clank gets worked up and suHispanicious

    I like it. Later on the story it shows that he matured from not being an asshole

    I liked him too, he had actual character development but didn't become such a boy scout like in the Future games and that god awful remake.

    I like him, people overreact to asshole Ratchet. It makes their eventual friendship feel more satisfying. Plus anything is better than modern Ratchet who has zero edge to him and just feels like a hero in a Disney cartoon.

    You aren't
    He was an actual character that actually grew to be less of an asshole
    Why'd he have to lose all his personality after the ps2 games?
    I get they wanted him to not be the complete dick they went in the complete opposite direction there
