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.

Guybrush Threepwood!!!
Gabriel Knight
Larry Laffer

RPGs
Nameless One :) (Torment)
Minsk (Baldur's Gate)
Tali (ME, c'mon she's an elf engineer with a hidden face and glowing eyes, what's not to love :P)
Safiya (NWN2:MotB - really liked the game as well)
Shale (Dragon Age - close to Morrigan)
Dog Companions wherever!!! (Fallout3 and DA come to mind)

Fighting
Paul (Tekken)
Kenshi (MK, for the poser factor)

Action & Platform
Luigi (just because)
Raziel (Soul Reaver)

Out of the top of my head :P

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.
