Ranked: 50 Most Favourite Video-Game Characters!

Tekken 3 - PlayStation


What's not to like? He's fast, he's agile and he can pretty much beat anyone he wants to and he is marked by the Devil himself. He also has a cool hairstyle and vintage collection of flaming-pants! Have to admit that his Devil-Jin persona was a little bit of a letdown but It was great. Tekken 3 was the first Tekken game I'd played and I had used Jin as my character when I played it for the first time and quickly became the very first character which I actually liked and followed him in 3 more titles but then It got a little boring! Anyways, both in his Devil-Jin and 'normal' persona, Jin Kazama is my most favourite video-game character of all time!

Looney Tunes B-Ball - Super famicom and SNES

Check out 6:31


Ah, back when the emulators used to rule everything. My dad downloaded an emulator for the PC and It had more than 100 games and this was one of them! Bugs Bunny may have appeared in a myriad of games and cartoons but no other incarnation can beat this version!

Why is he No. 2? Well, first of all, he is the most fastest and second only to Taz in power. Now, this game has a feature which gives a unique power-up to each and every character and out of all, Bugs Bunny's the best! This may sound all too familiar to you: He dresses up as a female and all the players on court suddenly start drooling while the Wacky Wabbit grabs the ball and SLAM DUNK! Oh, the fun!

Halo 2 - Xbox
Master Chief



Many characters come, most of them go but Master Chief stayed. Even though the place where I live doesn't pay host to these things but when Halo came out, It quickly became the fastest selling video-game here and the helmet became the main attraction among young kids, most of them didn't even know his name.

Anyways, his big, imposing, faceless, silent structure is one of those things which gamers like because they can imagine that they are the character and thus enjoy the game more. I have never played this game but saw the whole walkthrough in the Let's Play series on Youtube and I found him very interesting!

Half-Life - PC Games
Gordon Freeman



Gordon Freeman, for one, is very unique: How often do we get characters who have Ph.D degrees and who actually knows how to handle a situation rather than just barge in?

He is also one of the best 'strong & silent' character and all I can say is that It was a good thing they left him unmasked otherwise he would've been boring... Just like anyother character!

+ He can wreck havoc more than Carnage just by using a crowbar!

God of War - PlayStation 2
Kratos


Not many know this but Kratos is the world's best playboy (take that Hugh Heffner) and he is brutal and aggressive from the tip of his beard to the end of his toes.

Kratos has a disturbing past with an uncertain future and he will do anything to erase the past and change the future.

Tomb Raider - PlayStation
Lara Croft



In the wake of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, many people have tried to make 'clones' or have borrowed certain elements here & there and among the debris, here stands Lara Croft: The quintessential gaming lady!

I've played the original, part 2 and Anniversary and she's one of the only few characters which is getting better age by age and technology by technology! Have to admit, the silver-screen version was quite disappointing!

Solid Snake



The Godfather of stealth, MGS showed us how games should be played, accurately and in order to get that message across, they gave us Solid Snake: A perfect, no-nonsense character for the game of games!

Loudmouth Larry



Loudmouth Larry (not pictured) is the commentator of the game. I've played quite a few games which have commentary but none beats Loudmouth Larry!

He actually takes pleasure in telling how far behind a driver is or who came first or who came last!

My most favourite moment is when he says: (insert name) is about to blow with a noticeable break in-between! Classic!

Pepsi Man - PlayStation
Pepsi Man



Pepsi Man may or may not be a shameless advertising game but who cares? I bought this game back when I used to drink Pepsi (now I don't) and instantly fell in love with 2 things:

1. The Pepsi Man character: To me he was the most coolest character ever and the way he runs around the streets collecting Pepsi cans was fun to watch!

2. The 'theme' song: Pepsi-Pepsi Maaaaaaannnn! Oh, the endless chant of the above is so addictive and even though I played this game 5 years ago, It's still ringing in my head! ARGH!

Wolverine




Like Bugs Bunny, Wolverine has also appeared in a variety of games and is the only X-Men member to have his own stand-alone series of games but the Wolverine that appears in this game is probably the 'true' Wolverine!

From the opening line "stow it boy-scout, I don't take orders from you" to "what you girls looking at?" to the funny dialogue scene with Dum Dum Dugan, Wolverine dominated the game.

When I played MUA for the first time, I was pretty annoyed to see Spider-Man as I had gotten tired of him and replaced him with Daredevil and the other two with Spider-Woman & Ironman (my dream team and the only team I stuck to throughout the whole game)

From the above mentioned 'dream team' Wolverine is second only to Spider-Woman. Oh yes, she managed to show some incredible skills in the whole Valhalla chapter and Wolverine was at his most finest in the Murderworld chapter (my most favourite chapter in the game)

I even used Wolverine to defeat Dr. Doom! That's how bad-ass he is!

Sam & Max



Even though I still haven't played any Sam & Max games I was aware of the duo and Sam & Max Hit the Road is the very first Let's Play I've seen on YouTube and have even drawn them: Here's Sam & Max and just Max alone!

Anyways, both are wise-talking animals with numerous pop-culture references with Sam being the authority and the 'thinker' while Max being the fast & aggressive partner. These two are icons in the gaming world and I never had much fun watching them and I think I'm gonna watch the Let's Play of Sam & Max: Freelance Police!

Spider-Man - PlayStation
Monster-Ock



Just so you know, Monster-Ock is the only character from the game not to be based on a character from the Comics, although that would've been cool! (If he really is based on one, tell me! Sorry, but my Comic-knowledge is mediocre)

Anyways, a combination of the insane Doc-Ock and the even more insane Carnage, Monster-Ock is one of the most terrifying PSX villains of all time and forget about being underrated or overrated: Monster-Ock as the final boss was probably the best way to end off Spider-Man 1!

With his ominous unintelligible chant of something that sounds like DIE YOU BOY DIE or something like THERE'S NO GOING BOY, there's no wonder that Spider-Man 1 is still regarded as the best game in the seemingly exhaustive Spider-Man titles! Wait, It sounds something like KRI... oh forget it!

One bad-ass, freaky boss and one of the only few characters which scared me as a kid!

WET - PlayStation 3




This game reminded so much of Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse. Anyways, Rubi is like a little bit of Max Payne, a little of Lara Croft & a little of Agent Rayne and a little dash of Trinity!

Just by watching the trailer I knew this game would be amazing but I was half-wrong! The graphics aren't too nice and the action is too fast unless & until you slow down but the voice-over is great!

Rubi Malone very well could be the female Duke Nukem or something and she is so badass she even kicks a basketball towards the 'camera' and goes through 40 men as if "they weren't there"

Happy Vader's rating:

Before you scan the list, I want to make one thing clear: I don't play games nowadays and It's been a good 3 year since I've last played a decent game and therefore don't have much knowledge on game characters so don't come up and say Why didn't you include this one? or Are you kidding? No... (insert name) or anything like that!

These 50 have been ranked on the basis on my small experience on gaming I had when I was young and when I used to play games or due to watching the Let's Play... series on YouTube!

I love watching those rather than actually playing them!

Enjoy!
