Which are your favourite badass characters?

I like Dante (Devil May Cry) because everything he says/does is cool, except for one or two things.

I like Sephiroth because of his arrogance, his amazing power and his smooth calm voice, that just makes his madness look even more realistic.

Also Kratos, with his amazing voice and his short and direct phrases that just shut up anyone.

Alex Mercer doesn't talks too much, but he is badass.

I would say Luca Blight may be one of them. Probably one of the most insane and evil video game villians there is.

"Badass" is overrated. I prefer characters like Garrett.

He actually made Final Fantasy 10 bearable.

He is the only main character that I cared for. I didn't hate the others, I was just indifferent about them.

But when Aurons story came full circle I thought he was a bad ass mofo. Besides the fact that he was a f*cking tank in game.

Garrett's really awesome, but I dunno about "badass." Part of the game's point is that he isn't a badass and can't fight his way out of a paper bag.

Shiva. Either playing as him or against him, there is no denying Shiva is the badass of badasses.

After him, Joe Musahi a.k.a the only man to take on Spider-Man, Batman, Godzilla, the Terminator, and win.

I liked Lulu because she spent the whole game mocking the other characters. Except Auron. Because no one mocks Auron.

But yeah, Auron was awesome. He really had a great storyline.

I don't think badass has to mean brute force strength, or an imposing individual. At least not the way I see it.

You're right in the technical sense...

But, being capable of ghosting through an entire mansion and robbing some scumbag lord of every penny without even so much as causing a breeze is pretty badass I'd say

Definitely. I've been wanting to give the game another play for about a year now, but I keep waiting on SE and this remaster. If I don't hear anything in the next six months I'll just say f*ck it.... damn SE and their announcements.

Exactly. If you have surgical precision in your skill-set, or whatever it is that you set out to do, you're a bad ass in my book.

Why would GoW gamers dislike the game when it tired to be like it?

That would be a lot cooler if the Blood Ravens were actually a real chapter.

I thought Games Workshop officially recognized the Blood Ravens, as seen in an official poster showing all the Space Marine heraldries, including the Blood Ravens.

I don't care if GW recognized them. I still don't consider them a real chapter. :P

I was actually going through it again when they announced the remaster.

And then I stopped playing because I figured, "How long can this sort of thing take?" Reasonable assumption, right?

F*ck you, Square.

Nothing about her is badass. She is skilled at parkour. She doesn't do it any more extravagantly than anyone else who would do it.
