Nathan Drake isn't bad ass. He's a **** Also, War? Meh. He's unoriginal and unmemorable.

lol I still do not get your point. I didn't put Geralt up there because I have not played the games. I want to, but 1 has such awful combat I can't keep with it. 2 looks awesome though.

Not really, maybe if you think he's bad ass in the way that he overcomes all obstacles in his path. But if you think that way, then every video game character is bad ass because they ALL overcome the obstacles because you ARE the player in the game.

Even if you didn't play the game, Geralt is simply bad ass in the first and second game. He's incredibly awesome. The things he says and his actions are just insane.
#16 Posted by Spartan070 (16333 posts) -
Also, have not played The Witcher yet so I can't confirm Geralt but he does seem like an amazing character.

Ethan Mars. What he endured to save his son is truly worthy of a badass title

I don't think badass necessary mean RATATATATAT WHERE IS MY WIFE!!!! RATATATATAT LOCUSTS!!! Alan Wake is more of a silent type of badass a bit like Max Payne.

No he isn't. Comparing Max Payne to Alan Wake is an insult to Max Payne.

Well technically if you play it right, he can b*tch out at every opportunity and comdemn his son to death...

If I had to pick a Heavy Rain character, it'd be Norman Jayden.

So killing just about* every single god on Mt. Olympus as well as a myriad of other Mythological creatures doesn't make you a badass?

Cmon now. Not a single character on that list could do what Kratos did/does.

Kratos transcends all gens. I'm sorry you're jelly. Should have got a PS3 I guess.
