Five Unlikely Video Game Heroes

MC writes: Video games today have competent heroes, like soldiers or Batman. Even in games with darker storylines, the heroes (or anti-heroes) are still capable types, such as gangsters or other nefarious outlaws. It wasn’t always that way, as these are some of the most unlikely heroes in video game history. (3DS, Culture, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, Wii)
