The Ugliest Video Game Characters Of All Time

PiMP: "Some video game characters are best remembered for their rapier wits -- the original Leisure Suit Larry (pre Box Office Bust) and Guybrush Threepwood spring to mind. Others because of the way they were brought to life by the actors who voiced them -- who could forget Mark Hamill's spookily insane rendition of Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum, for example?

But then there are characters that are memorable not because they're fun, funny or are just plain stacked -- they stick with you because they almost made you revisit your reverse. Yep, these are the 11 ugliest video game characters of all time."

Whenever i see the characters in gears of war i think of these toys my little brother used to play with.

It's kinda funny actually.

PlainOldGamer3602d ago

Lol at those "Action Ranger" type toys! It's pretty true.

Darkstorn3602d ago

They forgot Abe from Oddworld.

now that you look at it ,marcus fenix is a pretty ugly guy lol but Clotho from god of war takes the cake freakin disgusting i actually feel kinda sick looking at the picture

Montrealien3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

Am I the only one who thinks these list lack a little culture? If you are going to say all time, make it all time, not just the last 20 years.

WildArmed3601d ago

lol yeah it does .. xD

I lol'd hard @ Earthworm Jim.

ANd was like WTF when I saw CLotho.. (GoWII)
Man sometimes I'm glad that i didn't complete GoWII.
But i should pick up the GoW Collection soon\

Every time I see gears of war characters I think of "baby oil" because they are shiny with unreal engine.

hatchimatchi3602d ago

yea, the unreal engine does make games look extremely shiny. I think the best game that uses the unreal engine is arkham asylum. That game features some amazing graphics.

Baka-akaB3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

that , bioshock and the upcoming Blade and souls mmo from Ncsoft (actually using the UE for more than bulky muscular guys and shiny metallic textures , and properly animating then ? Kudos for that alone , however good the games truly turns out to be in the future) are probably the only games using it in a really good way (art and design wise)

Elven63602d ago

The Bioshock engine is a updated version of Unreal 2.5 IIRC.

Shane Kim3602d ago

I think ME has used UE best. Batman and Bioshock are still coated in vaseline.

NotSoSilentBob3602d ago

Halo 3 gives UE3 a run for its money in the Vaseline shine.

I'm surprised they didn't include a mention of Broodmother from Dragon Age with Clotho,ugly beasts those two are practically from the same pod to.

NMC20073602d ago

It feels like the site is totally trolling Gears of War, especially when you look at all of the types of ugly in the list and then BAM! Marcus Fenix. SMH

Doesn't surprise me coming from a site called though, carry on.

DiffusionE3602d ago

Oh come on now, where's your sense of humor? It's not like they're saying he's the worst character ever. It's just that they find the character model to be ugly and lacking in creativity on the developers' part..... or they just find him ugly. :P

Baka-akaB3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

oh cut the crap and lighten up, it's obvious they mention looks , not the quality of the games featuring them . if you ever needed a proof it's the beloved earthworm jim .

And Gears heroes are indeed fugly and weird . Plenty of friends and myself included didnt got attracted much to Gears of war at first . The spartan design , the characters looking like twins of Bane and Bizarro , and the overused and abused "vulgar movie marines" language going with it .

Still a good , great even game , but not always my taste , at least when it comes to design (and for the very same reasons i'm not loving quantum's theory design , from before and after it went multi)

. My opinion is that characters dont have to be either and always androgynous whiny teens , or mindless steroid junkie soldiers .

huga_muga3602d ago

He looks like a guy with muscles and no brains.

WildArmed3601d ago

well if you were playing Gears because you thought Marcus was hot.. then you should be offended.

But since you didnt, and you played it for the same reason we all did, was the addicitive gameplay and graphics.

Even though the game is awesome, Marcus is effen ugly.
