Gaming's Folk Heroes

GamesRadar: "Johnny Appleseed. John Henry. Joan of Arc. Besides having names that start with the letter J, these figures were all regular folks who seemed doomed to live and die in obscurity. But through extraordinary action, these once-ordinary citizens took on an air of mythological proportion. Flash-forward to modern-day: Instead of spreading stories about hammer-swinging hard laborers or sword-wielding martyrs, we regale our friends with tales of idiots who ran into dragon dens, and ubernerds who laid down the lore law. Because that's what constitutes a folk hero these days." (Culture)
