I guess some people have never heard of Kain. Or B.J. Blaskowitz. Did you say your name was Duke Nukem? Never heard of you.

Most of all I think someone doesn't understand the definition of Badass.

lol alex b4 snake / marcus ? and dont even get me started on duke/raziel/cole/the old guy from l4d/prince / niko not bein on the list , oh did i forget chief and visari ?

Jockamo3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

The author obviously has only been playing games for 5 years.

I would nominate Agent 47 of the Hitman Series. HE'S badass and not in an overdone, "look at me, I'm such a badass" kinda way.

Also the epitome of badass for me is Akuma from Street Fighter 2.

mal_tez923597d ago

There is no denying he deserves the number 1 spot.

I don't really agree with Drake being a badass though. He is my favourite video game character just because he is NOT the typical badass, but more of a realistic, relate-able character.

But I suppose the combat itself makes him badass.

#1 it's gotta be Kratos, who else is as slick and badass and well known for that matter?

Timesplitter143597d ago

Looks like the writer of this article only started gaming in 2006

No Big Boss? (Naked Snake)

No Raiden? (MGS4)

I am disappoint.

Jinxstar3596d ago (Edited 3596d ago )

Sweet tooth needs to be here. He IS the most badass character in video games. However Kratos being Jaffe's other character I would be fair enough to tie the 2. Seriously though how could this love child not be there.

Good pick using Kratos for number 1. But where the hell is Jackie Esticato (the main character from The Darkness) I swear everyone missed that game. The Darkness was hands down one of the best games this gen and everyone seems to have missed it.

micro_invader3597d ago

Agreed, quite an underrated game. The story was great too, one part specifically really tugged at my heartstrings so to say (I think anyone who's played it knows what I'm talking about.)

LeonSKennedy4Life3597d ago

The Darkness is one of my favorite games...not just of this generation either.

The atmosphere Starbreeze created was incredible! Jackie's voice-acting was top-notch too.

Great adaptation of a great series.

Timesplitter143597d ago


The Darkness was incredible and it had an awesome atmosphere/story

The_Zeitgeist3596d ago

Wow good to see a few people played it!!! Bubbles to you all!!

Nineball21123596d ago

Yep, The Darkness WAS a great game.

LOL, but by the time I got it, there was NO ONE playing online (not that it really needed it).

I'm glad I kept that game. I'm going to have to go back and revisit it.

I loved the little gremlin things too! Made me laugh... :D

Kratos is a decent #1 pick, I can see some people not liking many of the others, but you can never please everyone with these lists. Nice organization and a clean read overall. :-)

YogiBear3597d ago

What a terrible post. At least explain your opinion.

This wasn't written by a Sony fanboy at all.

I like the Gears of War thrown in there to try and make it seem non biased.

nostalgic_noob3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Told you before , xbox games are no good, they cant make it into any postive lists. The only way they can is out of Pity.

NegativeCreep4273597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

All Points Bulletin: Fanboy Murderdolls can't get a f*cking life!!!

@ IcyJoker

Master Chief is Murderdoll's master. Murderdoll is Master Chief's Mr. Slave.

IcyJoker1873597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

murderdolls is master chief your top bad*ss character

-MD-3597d ago

Is your avatar the elf from gauntlet?


-MD-3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

I actually didn't even see your bad comment when I posted so please forgive me. And Masterchief wouldn't even be in my top 30.

It's you're not your by the way.

LeonSKennedy4Life3597d ago

Who from MS's lineup would be on there?

Master Chief? Why? He shoots aliens. Um...don't we ALL do that?

Who else?

-MD-3597d ago

You shoot aliens in real life? No way bro. I bet you shoot zombies sometimes too huh?
