    I think Max Payne was cool character, he needs to be on that list too.

    I don't think it deserves a new thread so I'm gonna post it here ....

    Empireonline recently posted "The 50 Greatest Video Game Characters" list.

    http://www.empireonline.com/features/50-greatest-video-game-characters/default.asp

    To save you some time, here's their "amazing" list:


    This is outrageous. Gordon Freeman is n1 ahahahaha :roll: I haven't laughed so hard for a looooong time!

    While Duke Nukem is 20th and Solid Snake is 19th :eek: ..... Well what more can I say. This is an eyeroller.

    C'mon, nobody mentioned Psycho Mantis, i know he has a little impact on gaming industry but he is badaas stuff, and this is not the list of greats characters with biggest impact in gaming culture!?

    EDIT: WTF is so cool about Mario and Luigi, they are plumber ho eat mushrooms then get bigger an jump on frikin' walking mushrooms, Guybrush way much cooler, he can hold his breath for ten minutes, and say very quickly: "How much wood wood a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood", beat that!?

    Been gaming for over 20 years but i only know Gordon, Lara, PackMan, and well, Mario because he is used for many spots or whatever. I was already adult when I started with pc's and mostly confined myself to FPS and sims (simulators of tanks, jets... NOT "THE SIMS"!!!) . No arcade, no consoles, no toys. Instead books and guitars :p

    This list sucks. I don't know a few from the top 10 so I call BS. Where the F#$k is Mega Man or even Donkey Kong? You can tell this list was made by a kid.

    No, there's no Crash Bandicoot in the list.

    Rynn is another great character which didn't get mentioned. And they didn't even choose a single character from Mortal Kombat.

    Lara Croft, Duke Nukem and Solid Snake should always be in top 5. Even 100 years later.
