10 Non-Playable Characters We Would Love To Play As

"It's the interactive elements of games that make them so special and it is player interaction that truly separates games from film, but interactivity is a finite resource. Very few games allow you full control of more than one character, and often spreading your play time between multiple characters give you fewer options with each subsequent avatar you inhabit." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

For some reason I couldn't access any current or past news, on topic I've always wanted to play as Fatman from mgs 2 and I have real reason why

Actually in the Metal Gear Solid VR missions for Playstation 1. You could play as Gray fox through 1 or a couple levels.

(Nvm I read the article they mentioned this)

These were really fun levels too. That makes it all the more reason to want to expand his story because it is still rather a mystery how he found his way onto Shadow Moses.

He deserves a game of his own and it could even finish with his mission on shadow moses, fighting snake, and then helping him defeat Rex before ending.

How cool would it be to actually fight Snake as Fox?

Ahh well. Never happen.

I really, REALLY HATE articles that make you click through each slide instead of having a whole list, or at least half per page.
DragonKnight  +   1035d ago
Believe it or not, a lot of writers are forced into doing those slides but some sites just go too far with them.
DragonKnight  +   1035d ago
Here's the list.

1. Alyx Vance - Half-Life 2
2. Garrus Vakarian - Mass Effect Series
3. The Merchant - Resident Evil 4
4. Gray Fox - Metal Gear Solid
5. Shodan - System Shock Series
6. Tom Nook - Animal Crossing
7. Tingle - Zelda Series
8. Bastilla - Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
9. Sgt. Johnson - Halo 3
10. Lan Di- Shenmue Series.

I personally think this list, overall, is fail. I also find its lack of Jecht disturbing.

LOL the Merchant from RE4??? Just wow.
Wigriff  +   1035d ago
I hated that fucking merchant. Here you are, fighting your way up some big-ass castle tower, struggling for your life. You make it to the top, you're all out of breath, and suddenly you hear "Welcome, stranger."

It's like, "Dude! Where the fuck were you back there? Mr. I have tons-of-guns." :P

Yeah... fuck that guy.
azshorty2003  +   1035d ago
eFffing lol! I liked the Merchant, I always had that mentality when playing. "where were you 10 mins ago when I needed a rocket launcher for the Gigante?!"
Wigriff  +   1035d ago

The Merchant's whole demeanor was awesome, but yeah, he was a douche like that. That is probably why the developers gave the option of killing him. They knew that people would want to shoot that bastard at some point.

"I've got some lovely things on sale, stran–" *POW*

I wanted to play as Lieutenant Cartwright from Resistance: Fall of Man. He was awesome!
Zool 08  +   1035d ago
What about Albert Wesker from Resident Evil:Code Veronica
Nunchez  +   1035d ago
Recently I think Haytham from AC3 would've been cool. Yes I know he was playable for a while but he was a pretty cool character.

Actually you can play with Gray Fox in MGS1 ( PSX ) Integral. But you have to beat the game under 2,30 Hours and kill only 21 Person ( Including the Bosses ), No Retry (Just you can use Load Game ), Use Only One Health Packet, Without alert any enemy ( all the game ) and in Extreme Diffuculty.. If you finish the game like this ( we did ) in integral CD'S menu you ll see Gray Fox will open his mask and it means you can play gray fox missions in integral CD. For anyone who ll try this beat the game twice first in Extreme Diffuculty and first save meryl and get bandana ( infinite ammo ), second do not save meryl ( get the stealth camuflage ). and then try to open mask of Gray Fox.
