Top 5 Most American Game Characters

"July 4th seems to be the only day on which every US citizen gets a free pass to practice rampant nationalism and patriotic pride. The other 364 days of the year, we yell and curse at one another over political differences, but on this day we don’t even have the opportunity since we’re too busy choking ourselves on hamburgers and cheap beer.

What better way to celebrate this Bald Eagle Awareness Day than to recount the five characters in gaming history that most effectively summarize America? So go ahead. Set down your moldy lawn chair on the grass, light up a Roman candle, and check out the folks who embody the red, white, and blue to become the most American game characters." - Christian Mincks of Geekenstein (Culture, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Final Fight, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Metal Wolf Chaos, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Heil Senator Armstrong!

Despite his late appearance in MGR: Revengeance, his villainy, dialogue and characteristic makes him one of my favourite Metal Gear villains.
