Well, thats certainly not my list...

zerocrossing2632d ago

It would probably be a little generic, but if I has to list 10 chars I consider heroes it would be.

In no particular order.

1(MGS. Solid/Naked Snake)

2(FF 7. Cloud Strife)

3(LOZ. Link)

4(Shadow of colossus. Wanderer)

5(Devil May Cry. Dante)

6(Metroid. Samus Aarran)

7(Odin Sphere. Gwendalyn)

8(Onimusha 1/3. Samanosuke)


10(Onimusha DoD. Soki)

Not as easy as I thought to just pick 10, but like I said this is just 10 chars I can think up right now and its just my opinion.

Wanderer is not a hero. Thinks he's doing the right thing but he isn't. Driven by greed, selfishness, and stubbornness. These are not characteristics of a hero. At best, he is an anti-hero

Cool list, I haven't played any of those game series myself (I really need to pick up a copy of one of the FF games or the Metal Gear games or Zelda, I'm really behind the 8 ball on that one). It isn't easy to just pick 10 is it :)

zerocrossing2632d ago

Thanks :) Yeah any FF or MGS games are worth playing though MGS 3 Snake Eater is my fave, FF 10 or 13 is a good if your new to the FF franchise or dont have alot of time to game. It sure is Iv been gaming since the nes so I have a few to choose from lol :)

A few odd choices (can't say I've ever considered Marlowe or Soap to be heroes) but not bad.

Was a bit surprised on not seeing Ezio, seeing as how the page's background has him. =p

pungello882632d ago

Haha yeah I don't have anything to do with the page background, Marlowe and Soap might not be traditional heroes like Commander Shephard or Master Chief but they are heroes in their own right
