Nice, Kratos is the King

Mario and Link at #1 and #2 were obvious choices. However I do think that the list is incomplete without Ryu(or Ken), Samus Aran, Simon(or Richter) Belmont and Donkey Kong.

Sonic should definitely have been placed higher and Master Chief above Solid Snake is blasphemy!

Anyway, it's someone's opinion. How can it be wrong?

"Ryu(or Ken), Samus Aran, Simon(or Richter) Belmont"
Are you kidding? I had to google them before I realized who they are.

@ Above, what rock do you live under?

Thought Sephiroth was more memorable than Cloud.
Etseix  +   1501d ago
No Duke? yeah hes been missing for 10+ years but cmon, he needs a place in here... unless this list is made by kids who only plays mario, halo, zelda, games :/

well rockstar characters have personality's that other developers have trouble beating :P
x5exotic  +   1501d ago
they all sounds the same,,,rockstar characters that is.
except CJ is the coolest
Etseix  +   1501d ago
agree, IMO San Andreas had the best "dialog" from all GTA's (imo)
Laeto256  +   1501d ago
you cant have cloud without sephiroth, and cant have sephiroth without cloud. the 2 are so interconnected both as characters and fame.
ryan_s  +   1501d ago
what about zack cloud is connected more to zack than to sephiroth
Laeto256  +   1501d ago
after crisis core, but in the original their connection wasn't shown as much. but yeah zack is there too but then if you count zach you have to bring in angeal and genesis it's a big clusterf**** with these SOLDIER's lol
ryan_s  +   1501d ago
i got to say some of the characters don't belong to that list
and it pisses me off when the list starts from 1 it ruins the surprise :@

All Caucasians, cept for pacman.....and kratos he's black (flame!)
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1501d ago
I think they got the character and game mixed up. Because I do not know of any games called Cloud or Link and Im pretty sure FF7 isnt a character.
telekineticmantis  +   1501d ago
A character who doesn't talk and
has no personality is number 3, and over Solid Snake, What is wrong with this picture. what is the world coming to.
Goeres  +   1501d ago
Funny, how a mute guy in a turtle suit is able to reach so high on that list.
anasurimbor  +   1501d ago
One of the worst, laziest 'articles' I've seen in awhile
x5exotic  +   1501d ago

Shok  +   1501d ago
