I applaud you for putting the effort to create such a thorough list.

I'm not sure which is my favorite, but I guess from that list I have no choice but to pick Mario. He's gaming's icon, alongside the fact that he's one of the most likable characters in entertainment history. He appears in so many of the greatest games of all time (super mario bros, super mario 64, mario galaxy) that his long-lasting legacy in the industry is undeniable.

Great list you got there.

I voted for Commander Sheppard.

#6 Posted by mjorh (783 posts) -

Thanks guys .

Characters make the game memorable ...

DONKEY KONG! Though, to be honest, character wise, Sonic is better. Cool list

Yeah man. I never had the Sega, but I did get the mega collection on XBOX, and those were some great games.

nemesis is strong character right?

in RE 6... is that nemesis?

#12 Edited by foxhound_fox (88384 posts) -

I voted for characters I thought had actual personality and development over the course of the games they were in, and felt like true representations of human beings in the world of gaming. Others certainly had greater impact commercially, but were not and still aren't very good characters.

Out of that list, I'd say the best are probably Big Boss and John Marston.

That's a rational idea n good perspective u've got , 2 me making a good connection with characters is important u know it kinda shows your own personality ,i believe in some cases u can even make assumption of a persons personality based on what characters he likes .....

#15 Posted by ChiefvsGordon (1085 posts) -

i like that picture list better although mario isn't even close to the top for me. but all those characters for the most part would be on the list. switch subz with reptile. 22, and 39 I don't know who they are. and i don't like final fantasy so i would replace all of them lol

For me either :D ,as i said one of my friends has created this list n i believe it's great u know obviously the orders are different for everyone n some may add other characters 2 the list but overally it's well-versed!

#17 Edited by mjorh (783 posts) -

Mario is beating down everyone ....this guy is a true genius !

#18 Posted by kingcrimson24 (465 posts) -

Masterchief is number 1 for me , Gordon freeman is the second place , Garrus third place

#19 Posted by mjorh (783 posts) -

@kingcrimson24: Epic Characteres <3 !

Haven't had the pleasure 2 play with Masterchief n Gordon freeman though

#20 Edited by mjorh (783 posts) -

Decided to take a look at my old topic , seems that Mario is indisputable !

Any further thoughts?

#21 Posted by SovietsUnited (2302 posts) -

Came to vote for Kain, oops

#22 Posted by hrt_rulz01 (6100 posts) -

Yeah great list!

I voted for a few, but the main ones were Gordon Freeman, Crash Bandicoot, Kratos, Master Chief, Commander Sheppard, Nathan Drake.

#23 Edited by dioskoro (9 posts) -

Nathan Drake, John Marston.

Being able to vote by clicking on a character image would be radical.

Anyway, as much as I prefer some characters, I pick Master Chief. I chose him particularly because he saves life in the Milky Way Galaxy from extinction.

Yeah it would , "he saves life in the Milky Way Galaxy from extinction" the quote of today for me ! :D

I'll come out of left field and give cl4ptr4p some love. He cracked me up in both Borderlands games. Funny monologues, human-like qualities and witty references.

Sephiroth was an amazing character as well. He had the mystery and intrigue with his presence alone. Then you throw flashbacks, deep characters (Red, Aerith, Vincet, Cloud) and a great story into the mix with Sephiroth making him one of the most memorable villains ever.

.Shepard and Geralt would be my honorable mentions.

I would've raged if you've left out the machine mother. Thanks for putting her in.

Shepard got my vote
