The 18 Greatest Time Travelers in Videogame History

Dorkly: Time travel has been a super popular theme in movies, books and games ever since the first time machine was invented in the year of our Lord Zenithox 33270XX, so naturally there have been plenty of virtual heroes zipping through the space-time continuum. Even with so many cool games featuring time travel, these eighteen veteran characters stand out for going the distance in the past, present and future. Their heroic chrono-adventures have taught us all that no matter how far into the past or future we go, bad guys and logic puzzles span across all history. (Assassin's Creed, Braid, Clock Tower 3, PC, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, PS2, PS3, The Legend of Zelda, Xbox 360)

Completely wrong. Everyone knows that Doctor Who would be number 1 having been featured in several video games.

Doctor Who isn't synonymous with video games, though. Crono is the clear choice for #1.

I didn't see any other prerequisites. Just the words "greatest time traveler in video game history". They key word being "time traveler" not "most established game character that travels in time." So while Crono may be a famous video game character, he isn't famous solely for being in a game featuring time travel. On the other hand, Doctor Who is famous for him being a time traveler. He has been in shows, movies, book, and... games! So Doctor Who is number 1.
