Great Video Game Characters, What Is The Perfect Formula?

millienL (Female Gamer) from CCU writes:

What makes a great character? From what I deduced, usually the most conflicted characters have the biggest impact. Here I specifically want to examine a few.

For me, the perfect characters are usually the conflicted ones. An all out hero who is out for justice and fights for the people is a familiar idea but a boring one unless you put a twist on it. I love the characters that fight for something more than “what’s right”. Maybe they fight for revenge or they fight to restore an Idea or code. Usually these stories are never straight forward. There are always rules that have to be broken in order to achieve the end result.

Lets start with an easy (cheesy) one perhaps. The “Hero”: (Arcade, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Dev, GameCube, Infamous, PS2, Ratchet & Clank A Crack in Time & Tools of Destruction bundle, Sleeping Dogs, Uncharted Trilogy, Xbox)
