The Most Overlooked Characters of the Year

BT writes: "What makes a good character? For over two years I have been asking that question and showing prime examples of video game characters and what makes them work. We have seen rampaging murderers, mythic heroes, tragic villains, and cerebral storytelling that many of us may have never considered before.

One of the best aspects of these character studies, however, is how new entries are introduced to the playing public. This year alone we saw a breadth of memorable personalities, some of which have become iconic gaming celebrities almost overnight. Sadly, I feel my colleagues at Blistered Thumbs missed the mark with their own list

Certainly, the cast of Grand Theft Auto V and Joel and Ellie from The Last of Us are shoo-ins on any list, but the overall piece felt flat in comparison to the richness of who else could have been mentioned. With this in mind, I figure the best way to honor these overlooked characters is to simply highlight them, together, in a good old-fashioned listing. So here is a group of memorable personalities that truly define what it means to be a character with character."
