Who is Your Favorite Video Game Character?

Central to pretty much every big video game these days is a likeable main character. For example, Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series is a wise cracking adventurer who shoots bad guys and steals treasure, while at the same time, manages to stay alive even after multiple gun shot wounds and insane falls.
-PSLS (Final Fantasy IX, God of War: Ascension, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Wii, Xbox 360)

Solid/Naked/Old Snake.
Fox McCloud (Starfox 64 background story was epic), Delita from FF Tactics,
Rei from Breath of Fire 3,
Madison from Heavy Rain,
Mona Sax from Max Payne,
Junpei Iori from Persona 3,
and Teddy & Yosuke (from Persona 4).

These character's personalities stood the test of time in my many years of gaming.

Snake is pretty awesome. But which one? There are too many Snake forms. Platformers are fun too, Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank, Sly. All great characters.

Solid Snake.
He's just badass
TongkatAli  +   565d ago
MGS2 Snake is the best design of him. Too bad Snake isn't a girl, dat ass.

Edit: Its in your face the whole time in the tanker mission. Its impossible to not stare at it. MGS2 wasn't a side scroller bro.

Everyone's entitled to an opinion, but if you get to choose your favorite character of ALL TIME, you have to be either really crazy, or really young to choose those.
Thefreeman012  +   565d ago
I don't think that in the past there were as many characters that were fleshed out as well as these. I used to think spyro and crash were my favorite but they haven't made a decent contribution in years .... I forgot to even mention Gordon free,an but it's been so long since aHL game came out so I forgot

My initial reaction is to say SNAAAAAAAAKE!!

But I really love the personality of Nathan Drake. I think he is one of the top characters considering the great writing and performance of that Nolan guy.

But then again Myshep might be the best simply because I made him what I wanted him to be. And the fact that somebody could be reading this and be replacing "him" with "her" I think speaks volumes.
ApolloTheBoss  +   565d ago
That question is not an easy one.
This cant be a serious question...

Dont know if I have a favorite. My psn avatar is Jak though.

I really like enigmatic characters though. Master Chief is a good one.

favorite videogame character,its a tie between the guy in my avatar,the prince of persia,sly cooper,and jade,if you go through the sands of time triology you really see how his character develops into a noble badass,that isnt your typical witty,gritty(besides warrior within)psycho character,and he is the parkour king in my opinion,as well as the king of blades,the prince is a very agile fighterand despite his size he can brawl hes taken down guys bigger than him and god like beings,and he could control time itself,nuff said.

The other character i love sly cooper hes just a cool character in general,hes like a more cartoony version of the prince for me and i guess thats why i like him also he has this entire history of cool ancestors as well as an arch nemesis thats hunted sly and his entire family for centuries.

The last jade now for me jade from beyond good and evil and mortal kombat are almost pretty darn similar,so when i mention anything it pretty much applies to both, but jade is a very cool character,shes a person that puts her friends above herself,and would do anything to help them even risking her own life,and the way she fights is very cool also shes very sneaky she gets in and then out without being seen,and the pole staff attacks are these fluent death strikes.

tiffac008  +   565d ago
If I have to only pick one, it would be "Yu Narukami" from Persona 4
Donnieboi  +   565d ago
He's a silent protagonist who never makes his own decisions. It would make more sense to pick a supporting character rather than one who has no actual personality (although his personality is YOU). Anyway, if u seen the anime, he was given a personality, and THAT was a great personality. Not the one in the game.
tiffac008  +   565d ago
Yes, I have seen the anime and because of it, he was given a not-so silent role in Persona 4: Arena. :)
