I would have to say my # 1 favorite character would have to be Solid Snake, he's just an overall badass in every game! Not to mention that the MGS series were an amazing set of games, imo. My next choices would be Ratchet & Clank and Crash Bandicoot, both great games in their own right! Wish they had more games like those now. I feel like games used to be more creative back then, to some extent, now the shift seems to be towards graphics and not so much gameplay (Obviously there are many cases where this is not the case - but there are many where this is).

 

Such as COD, AC same game, same graphics, mostly same gameplay overall, they just keep churning em out every year for a quick buck.

SNAAAAAAAAAKE! I absolutely love Snake! And Big Boss in MGS3. And The Boss... Y'know, I just love Metal Gear Solid. Amazing series, for sure.

The all-time definitive video game character can be no one else but the mushroom consuming pipe jumping goomba stomping and infamous turtle hater Mario from Super Mario Bros. Gaming as we know it wouldn't be here without Mario - the original mario game alone saved the video game industry from the brink of bunkruptcy; that alone merits major props.

Wow I have a lot, that's a great list from all of you guys. Definitely big boss and the boss from mgs series. Megaman and megaman x, zero too. Mario and Link are two classics you can't pass up. Cloud, Zack, Squall, and Auron are a few of my favorites from the final fantasy series. Crono is a huge favorite of mine. These are just some off the top of my head. I should make a more complete list one day.

Great thread idea... Other than some of the obvious ones (like Link, Kirby, Donkey Kong), I'd have to go with pretty much the entire Persona 4 cast, especially Naoto Shirigane.

 

I also am a big fan of most of the characters in Dragon Age Origins and DAII, especially Anders.

 

... That's what immediately pops into my head, anyway!

LOL. I KNOW. I KNOW. I actually kinda hated him in DAO: Awakening, but I really liked what they did with him in DAII - even though ... well, don't want spoilers for anyone. I found him to be a really interesting character and I actually preferred the new voice actor over the original.

 

But I also loved ... oh what was her name? the little elf? She had a brief part in DAO and then joined your party in DAII? How can I not remember her name?! I loved her and romanced her even though I know most people found her annoying. I found her hilarious.

Merrill?

 

I have heard that Anders is much cooler in DA2. But I'm still mad. DA2 had this stupid glitch that wouldn't let me continue on with the main quest. And I was still only on act 1. Apparently that happened to a lot of people. I even replayed and try to avoid what could trigger it based on what I read online. It didn't work :(. I was really sad.

Yes, Merrill! Thanks, DC! Yeah, I loved her but most of my friends hated her.

 

Ugh. I'm sorry you hit a glitch. The game was really flawed (DAII), but I loved the characters. I thought they were even better than DAO in some ways.

I for some reason...at least up to the glitched enjoyed DAII more than DAO. I can't really pinpoint why exactly though. But then again, this could be because I never got to the more flawed part of the games?

For this year I liked Lighting Farron and Nathan Drake. Light's pretty much a bad a-- all around. Drake is a charamastic fortune hunter, whats not to like?

I can't place my finger on it, but I really can't stand Nathan Drake. I'll take Tomb Raider over Uncharted any day of the week. Lol

Maybe it's bothering you that he gets Chloe and Elena xD

 

I usually would like the female counter part more. But so far Tomb Raider doesn't really have character development. I think the reboot of the series to change that though.

 

I like how Drake is a fortune hunter and is in a selfish field of work. Yet at the end of the day his always willing to do the right thing even if he ends up with nothing at the end.

 

Plus Uncharted has a better cast. Chloe who is a stark contrast to Drakes goodie touchy ways. Elena who is the good girl reported that can hold her own. Sulli who even if reluctantly will do the right thing, has also been taking care of Drake since he was a kid. Charlie who is hilariously afraid of small places. And I mean it's funny because you would think a thief wouldn't have problems with that.
