Interesting list... I don't disagree with any of them. They all had an important place this gen. I'm sure there are others to consider, but nice list in general.

I think Desmond might be a better choice because that would encompass the entire series rather than just three of the games.

Good call.

Cant argue too much with that list, New ips should always define a gen and we've had some great ones to be fair

The list is:

Commander Shepard
Marcus Fenix
Nathan Drake
Isaac Clarke


I would argue that only Shepard and Nathan Drake are characters who defined this generation, because we're talking about characters, not games (and why are Miis even there? *sigh*).

If any one character defines this generation, it's Nathan Drake. In that he is the most representative of the archetype of "snarky white guy w/ short brown hair" 95% of western games use as PCs. And the whole massive cognitive dissonance established between his character & in-game actions.

Hard list to argue all five deserve a spot. People can and will nitpick but I think it represents the gen.
