Last December GameInformer celebrated their 200th issue with eight unique covers and their Top 200 Games of All Time. This year, they decided to reveal their Top 30 Characters Who Defined A Decade.
and i mostly agree with the characters on the spread...
i'll get the cover with The Boss...
I only recognize a few characters on there. One is defintiely questionable (like that weird king from Katamari).
From left to right: http://media1.gameinformer.... Don't know who the girl is, Jimmy Hopkins (Bully), some Call of Duty guy? really don't know, I don't recognize the guys with large hair either -dragon age maybe?-, Kratos (God of War), Tommy Vercetti (GTA: Vice City), Niko Bellic (GTA IV), don't know who the guy with glasses and weird jacket is, and finally Jade (Beyond Good & Evil). http://media1.gameinformer.... GLaDOS (Portal), Andrew Ryan in the back (BioShock), don't know who the girl is, Nathan Drake (Uncharted), Tim (Braid), Elena Fisher (Uncharted), Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assasssin's Creed), in the portrait on the wall is the King of all Cosmos (Katamari) and finally John Marston (Red Dead Redemption). http://media1.gameinformer.... Ico (ICO), don't know the girl, Ethan Mars (Heavy Rain), don't know the smoking old man, Master Chief (Halo), Commander Shepard (Mass Effect), Alyx Vance (Half-Life), Raz Aquato (Psychonauts) and the guys in the portraits on the wall are Professor Hershel Layton (Professor Layton) and Phoenix Whright (Ace Attorney). Help me with the ones I didn't recognize :)
The girl on the way left in your first link is that bitchy woman in RDR that saved Marston's life in the beginning, something MacFarlane. You're right about the CoD guy; I don't know his name either. I'm thinking the guys with long hair was that infamous game on the 360 with 4 discs. I guess that was Dragon Age as you said. Guy with glasses and jacket is Vash the Stampede (no, it isn't. I don't know who the hell that is). Can't help you with the others you don't know. You knew a lot more than I did.
http://media1.gameinformer.... ^^ Guy with hand on the COD guy is from Lost Odyssey: http://metavideogame.files.... AND... http://media1.gameinformer.... ^^ and old man with cigarette is this guy from Mass Effect 2 (I havent played the game yet): http://news.idealo.co.uk/wp...
ok here is few more that I know: http://media1.gameinformer.... they guy with glasses is Auron from FF10 http://media1.gameinformer.... the girl is the boss form MGS3
Only one character I can think of that's missing... Sackboy
I'd say the Helghast are a lot more recognizable than any of the ISA.
lol Sev lol
Really agree with you about sackboy. Iconic!
Kratos makes the cover look badass
That kid MC is lookin sexy too. Nice, very nice cover.
No Gordon Freeman? I mean sure, you don't actually see him but come on. You don't see Master Chief either. Overall it is a nice art piece though some of the characters are a bit overrated (the guy from Heavy Rain, really?)
In Ethan's defense, Heavy Rain did help define this decade. It did something no other game dared to do, and it deserves respect for that. But come on...Where the hell is Link and Ratchet and Clank?
Pretty sure, Fahrenheit, also known as Indigo Prophecy, did the exact same thing. It was done much better the second time around though.
Seriously why no Snakeeeeeeeeee :/
no snake = FAIL
no snake? lame! marcus fenix should be there! two of my favorite games series ever!!
Snake existed before the year 2000 and the article only includes characters debuting from 2000 to 2010...
Mario died about 15 years ago.
that was funny because it was so random
What about Link?
WOW!!! THAT IS FUCKING UNIQUE
Love the art and the charcter collage even though its missing some of my favs, love it to have some of my fav's like nathan hale, ratchet and clank, solid snake, Link, Dante and a big daddy.
What they did to Wanderer should be a sin. Edit: I just realized. Drake looks Middle Eastern.
Did anyone else spot Andrew Ryan in the back? This is such awesome art!
Where is Nissan GT-R ?!
no sweettooth WTF
and one with multiplat characters only, and one with x360 exclusives. x260 would have like 3 characters xD. ps3 would be busting out of the cover with characters and franchises even more then multiplats :0.
Kratos looks most bad-ass. Period.
Half of those fool u dont even know! and To Not include ANY Nintendo Character is FAIL on its own! GameInformer is Trash
Gotta love Master chief. One Question though why no sack boy no helghast no ratchet and clank I don't think I saw Jak or daxer in there and No sly cooper. no Phantom dust no Kaim from lost odyssey and no Altair Ezio doesn't count but the real one I;m pissed about is no FRIGIN Marcus fenix I love all these characters they should've done a console war one with Sony and Microsoft's most notorious Icons it would be awesome but still the coverts are amazing can't wait since i have a Game informer subscription. RANT OVER
balloon is jason mars and the sand clock that is infront of elana and drake is the prince from prince of persia references
