there are so many ways this conversation could go.... mario, ash ketchum, link, samus, master chief... the list goes on and on. one might be the most widely recognized, the most popular. one might be the oldest. one might be the toughest, the best fighter. the fastest. the strongest. the worst.

just put all of your opinions here and keep the discussion going.

He crushes evil do-ers in a pair of cool sneakers, searches for knowledge while simultaneously rescuing his friends from imminent danger, and unlocks valuable secrets along the way, all with a big smile on his face and an unforgettable sense of humility. No mission is too rough or too strenuous for this extraordinary hero.

Obviously, I'm referring to Rollie McFly.

I haven't actually played Bugdom in about 10 years. Does anyone remember it from back in the day?

I guess game characters can fall into only three genres, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Reality. I won't include Horror because that would fall under the umbrella of Fantasy.

Science Fiction: Master Chief VS. Sheppard

Master Chief saves Earth/Sheppard saves all life in the universe

Winner: Sheppard


Fantasy: Mario VS. Link

Mario Steps on small animals under the influence of Hallucinogens to save a girl who's army of guards couldn't protect. Mario is a drugged up dwarf who enjoys harming animals for fun and forcing himself upon princesses he doesn't really even know/Link Saves all of Hyrule almost everyday from childhood starting with nothing more than a small sword. Link cares more for saving lives than he does for his own well being, Though he has an interesting take on landscaping.

Fantasy: Link

Reality: Niko Bellic VS. John Marston

John Marston, Though living a less than reputable youth, Sacrifices everything, including good of his soul, To save his family and to secure their future. John Marston always strived to do the right thing/Niko Bellic Moves to America after getting out of a rough tour for a foreign military that was never named. Upon arriving to America proceeds to experience Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and kills all who get in his way, Showing no remorse as he guns down, runs down, and blows up more innocent civilians than a nuclear bomb. In the end saving nothing more than his deadbeat cousin and a couple of sedans. Niko Bellic is a Mafia Wannabe with an unpredictable personality.

Reality: John Marston

These are the greatest characters and nothing anyone says or does can change my mind.

I believe ezio alditore is the best character of all time because of Assassins Creed Revelations. Full of charisma. I loved Revelations. Ezio had so many hidden weapons he was a force to be reckoned with. Plus he had skills of invisibility so to speak. Youd never see him comeing. But my opinion might change with Assassins creed black flag.

Probably mentioned before, but the guys from Banjo Kazooie (Banjo and Kazooie) are good contenders for "the best".

Mordecai

Mordecai is awesome, but I find Zero more appealing for some reason...

I'm surprised noone actually said a word about spyro (he is a DRAGON ! anyone loves that), or Cloud/sephiroth. To be honest, I haven't really seen any villain here, though some are soooo classy.

Genesis, for FF VII : before crysis, for example, is my best VG character of all time

Best character in my opinion is Altair, from assassin's creed..

He is so smart, and mysterious in the same time,

He also died with honor while he left the Apple of Eden inside a wall,

He is also the best assassin in the series, and he was in to many Episodes from the game itself.

It's like a 3-way-tie...
Leon from Resident Evil, Link form Legend of Zelda, or Mario.
If this were Coolest video game characters, I'd sub in master Chief for mario, but I'd say Mario has earned the title as the "Best Video Game Character"

Mario is a terrible character and I'll be dead twice over before I understand what the hell you people like about him so much.

Samus from Metroid because a hot babe who kick a$$ in a one of a kind environment (space and alien worlds) with cool monsters, great music is the winning combination for me.

Does that mean that if Samus had been designed as a man, you wouldn't have loved these awesome games ? tss tss
