Top 10 Characters that need better Games

Clickonline writes "Provided you have a soul (twisted or otherwise) you know and love the following characters. I don’t blame you.

I wish they were my friends and that they’d give me High-Fives.

I also wish they were in different games: newer, better, more differenter!" (Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, PC, PS3, Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Wii, Xbox 360)

"I WANT to play as Dante. But now, wizened and aging, I crave just a hint of depth, of subtlety to both mechanics and narrative."

Yessss! I love the set-up for and the hints of story/characterization that occurred in DMC1 to DMC4. But by the time DMC4 came around, it seemed like Capcom had no intention of deepening Dante's story and I started to get disappointed. I want to know more about Sparta, more about Vergil, more about Dante as a person and his life as a demon hunter, and more about the world they all live in.
Devil May Cry 3 gave us a hint of the rivalry between Dante and Vergil and some possible depth to the series' plot... then it was all forgotten about in DMC4. Just vague mentions of the past games and a buttload of random fights and backtracking. I was disappoint. :(

That's not to say I don't love the DMC series. I do. But I want so much more than what Capcom was giving us.

...Oh, and hell yes to another Legacy of Kain game!

You think the original Dante had awful taste in music? I love the DMC 1, 3, and 4's soundtracks! But then, I love metal so...

I'd love to see a new LoK title. I don't care if it's Kain or Raziel I play since both of 'em kick so much ass.

I don't think you have to love metal to love that soundtrack. The music just fit so well, the timing on the music was great too.

"Raziel.. you are worthy."

Soul Reaver had one of the most powerful openings in gaming history.

if i had 3 gaming wishes, one of them would be another Legacy of Kain with Amy Henning writing the script.

Man I remember getting Soul Reaver on PS1 and was just sucked right into the game! WE NEED ANOTHER LEGACY OF KAIN GAME!

Lol at the thought of a game where Bowser kidnaps Peach only to have someone else kidnap her from him and he have to go save her.

Notice the trend. Every game started sucking once it went multiplat. Perticuly the playstation exclusives

Regina from Dino Crisis. To see it change from an intense survival/horror game to an unfaithful shooter was a sad time in gaming for me.

Aya Brea from Parasite Eve also comes to mind and my soul for a proper GUILTY GEAR!!!!!!
