Game Informer has chosen the most influential characters in its latest issue. Characters such as Nathan Drake and Master Chief make the list. But who takes the top spot?
And I loved Portal. Nathan in the top 3 is good.
WHAT!? no sackboy.. he should be on there hes cool and awesome. this list has some flaws..
How can you not have Sackboy on the list? What a joke if he's not on the list
Halo launched in 2001 and has been one of the phenomenons since. Master Chief is a household name. There is no doubt that he is the number 1 character of the decade. Nathan Drake doesn't belong in the top 100. That list is a sad joke.
weres Dante???????????? this list Fails!
Interesting list, though I question some of those choices... Captain Price? Really?
I find John Marston a far more interesting person than Niko Bellic.
both are terrible and shouldnt be on the list
Really? Then what's your partake on the subject? What didn't you like about John's persona as a character?
i agree both were soooooo boring! niko always whinging in his annoying accent and john just being boring as batsh*t
I agree, I liked John Marston's character tons more than Niko Bellic...my favorite character from GTA4(not including the DLC Expansions) was probably Brucie.
honestly i think this list is pretty horrible
The list is pretty decent considering it is based on the characters and not the games themselves. I would consider Halo to be in the top 3 for at least most defining games of the decade, however since this is about characters it is a decent list. I wasn't really blown away by Glados as much as other people, but John Marston was a great character. But many of these characters are only from the last couple years or so.
1. Kratos 2. Solid Snake 3. Nathan Drake 4. HK-47
Kratos should be number one.
Loghain Mac Tier?!? WHAT?!? I played like five hours of Dragon Age and I didn't even remember that was his name. Lol. Why is he on there?
Bonnie MacFarlane a NPC from RDR? Seems like they were running out of characters and just threw randoms on there. I blame Nintendo's lack of new IPs. XD
No CJ form San Andreas? The game is one of the most successful games ever and his character is a big part of that. The player almost becomes him as you play through the game. Thats actually a little disappointing. It's probably because he's black...
What a crap list. It doesn't get much crappier than that.
... higher than tommy vercetti wut faggotry is this?
Sad. Tommy Vercetti is a freaking legend and probably the best GTA protogonist ever.
what about Dante from Devil may cry hes should be on the list also i am surprised Kos-Mos from Xenosaga is on the list shes one of my favorite videogame Babes
I disagree with just about everything on that list
the kid from the bully game really.
was a great game and so was Jimmy Hopkins as a character, you couldn't help but like the guy and his scarastic manner towards everything.

people who say good list are just happy because their favourite character or game is in the list:/
deal with it.
John Marston and Kratos should switch places. And no Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, Sly...?
Regardless of the characters who were chosen, this is an impressive piece of art. I can only imagine the conversations those characters could have if they actually found themselves all in the same room like this... :)
I'd agree with glados, alyx, andrew ryan, the boss, professor layton, wander and the king of all cosmos. But then again i havent played all these games.
Kratos can demolish all these characters in one fight..... if they were silly enough to get in his way LOL....... I temporarily nerded out lmao
Yeah this last decade been kinda useless as far as character imagination goes, i mean some are just meh as characters nobody truly memorable except one or two... look back further n you have more iconic characters
This list is AWFUL!! NO COLE TRAIN??! What?!? How can you have a list like this and not even MENTION the Cole Train from Gears of War! Oh and Master Chief should have been 1.
