Gamervision writes: "Believe it or not, there was once a time in which characters were not a very important part of video games. Some of the earliest titles had no actual characters, and those that did exist had little in the way of personality or distinct traits. Times have changed, and now one of the key factors to making a memorable game is having a distinguishable, unique, talented cast. Uncharted 2's Nathan Drake has been charming the pants off of every lady he meets since 2007, and he only got more lovable in 2009. Batman: Arkham Asylum delivered the best incarnation of classic DC villain the Joker in video games, helped in no small part by Mark Hamill's perfectly recognizable voice-acting."
