These characters are “strong, silent” types—literally. Join watchmojo.com as we countdown our picks for the Top 10 Silent Protagonists in Videogames. For this list, we ranked the best video game protagonists whom we rarely, or never, hear speak. We’re sticking to one per franchise, and we’re ruling out characters like Dovahkiin from Skyrim as he talks through text boxes, as well as characters that started as Silent Protagonists, but started speaking in later games, so Issac Clarke and Samus Aran are out too. Inarticulate grunts and yells are fine though.
