Here is the list of the Ten Greatest Game Characters of All Time, voted on by the gaming public.
Agreed! That list is crap! Mario? Lara Croft? Sonic? On top 10? List should include -Kratos -Tommy Vercetti -Dante -Altair
why would altair and dante be on the list? they're two very cool characters, but even pickachu is more famous than those two.
all he can do is say his name its a me mariiiooo. thats it how is he a great character, character as in actual story development so far he has been stuck saving that b$tch all the time.
1.WTF is Pikachu doing there? 2.No Kratos, Sam Fisher and Prince mean one thing: List FAILS. 3.No character from fighting games? No Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Ryu and such: List FAILS miserably.
You want Sam Fisher on the top ten characters of ALL TIME? lol
please turn your computer OFF (-)
sam fisher lol make laught
So a list shouold have Pikachu but not Fisher?
Pokemon is second all time only to Mario in popularity/number of games sold. Pikachu is one of the main reasons for that, Just because you may not like it or respect it doesn't mean it doesn't belong on the list.
What say is logical but I still can't get myself to believe Pika could be on the list... Sorry.
Crap list nuff said
pikachu was the suprise of that list LOL ... it shouldnt be there
What about FROGGER?????? This list is BULLSH*T :)
Some of these characters are deserving but Master Chief? Pikachu?
Sorry MK Red, gotta disagree there, Sam Fisher is hardly a character worth caring about. He's badass and all, and he has an awesome voice actor, but Splinter Cell's generally have shallow stories when it comes to the character aspect. Other then that, Lara Croft? Pac-Man? Link? Mario? Sonic? Pikachu? Master Chief? They all have next to no lines, two of them are animals of some sort! Maybe, as a Sony fan, I'm accustomed to getting fleshed out characters, but I find alot of old characters aren't even worth mentioning. My top ten would include Kratos, Nathan Drake, Desmond Miles (Altair), and Jak. Characters with personality, whom you can see have deep histories and depth.
Desmond Mies(Altair)..? dude we hardly know anything about Desmond other than he is an offspring..of Altair...maybe we should wait and see how the trilogy unfolds.. Nathan Drake- is a new character he's not mainstream like Mario I love Jak games but he doesn't deserve to be on the list either where's the Ghost of Sparta..??
Hate to break it to you but Sony doesn't have monopoly on video game characters with depth they have always been here even before Sony entered the video game market.
I know what you mean but what is Pikachu doing there? If that is on list so should Sam be. My biggest problem is lack of fighting game characters: Scorpion, Ryu,...
All 10 of those characters are equally iconic Video game characters. In fact any gamer could easily name all of their respective franchises without even blinking.
i'm sure they are just going by popularity. my favorite one is riddick. he was a bad a$$.
This is clearly the list of the 10 Most Popular Game Characters Ever, not the 10 Greatest.
I didn't agree with any of them in terms of placement on the list, other than Mario "maybe" ... Master Chief??? Whatever... he has no personality. That's a joke. Cloud?? He was in 1 game... makes alot of sense. I was waiting for them to toss up an Honorable mention for GTA 3's man with no name lead. What a piece a' damn joke!
Cloud should be on the top 3, Kratos and Dante should be there
Definitely agree with the top 3 but not the others thought.
More people know Mario than Mickey Mouse. He is a gaming industry Icon. Anyways, I agree with most of that list. But not so much samus. Kratos could be in there but no big deal.
kratos? dante? SEPHIROTH?????? This list is crap....
The list of iconic popular characters. Characters that the general public relates to. Of course it's not going to please everyone. My Favorite Are: 1. Reven (KOTOR) 2. Kain (Legacy of Kain) 3. Alyx Vance (Half-Life) 4. Jack Walters (Call of Cthulhu) 5. Nameless One (Planescape Torment)
= Instafail. The 'gaming public' knows nothing.
The top 5 characters on that list and 6 of the 10 will be in Super Smash Bros Brawl. Nice.
except...Tomb Raider. If any of you guys question this list...ya'll haven't be gaming long enough in my opinion. @#1 Yes Mario. You can ask non-gamers who Mario is and they'll be able to tell you with ease.
