Maybe hes a top 50er. Ok. But top 10? He beat Donkey Kong! I mean WTF!
Kratos is fine in the Top Ten, I mean he's the ultimate embodiment of a badass antihero of all time.
Also Gordon Freeman comes to no surprise.
But come on... Mario on first? There are so many better charakters than him. I mean the Mario games are a pretty deep impact on culture, but he is just a plumber. And so... good, ech.
And Soap McTavish come on. Have they asked anyone born before 1995? That'd explain Guybrush being so far behind.
Please that title belongs to Batman.
I think he deserves top 10 more so than, Lara Croft, Master Chief, or Solid Snake. Yes they all come from extremely popular franchises. but Laras franchise has seen ups and downs, and eh, just seemed like James Bond with boobs (which is cool, but boobs doesn't make her any more desered). Halos been a high selling series, but Halo 1 is better than the rest of the sequels, and Master Chief just lacks personality as a character. And Solid Snakes franchise has been huge also, but I still think the GoW series is better.
Like I said, the list of clones is unreal, Dante's Inferno, Darksiders, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, both Star Wars Force Unleashed titles, Heavenly Sword, Wolverine, Conan, Bayonetta. And most of these games are 80/100 or greater, these are just the clones I can think of off the top of my head. GoW has made such a lasting impression it seems people are afraid to step outside of that mold, thats why I can't play either Force Unleashed, it's a clone, but it isn't nearly as smooth, Wolverine was great, but not quite up to par.
In the comics for sure. In the videogame world, I would say shared. Batman AA was an impressive game, and I hope they can do it again, but Kratos has been on the videogame scene much longer doing his thing, and what he does to innocent bystanders that get in his way, is much worse than what Batman does.
Please, Batmans parents got killed.
Kratos was driven to kill his family (including daughter) himself by the God of War, so no emotions will stand in his way of being a perfect warrior. And their ashes cover his skin now so he will always be reminded of what he did. He seeks out to revenge the fucking Gods man. He rips off Helios' head and uses it as a flashlight.
Batman is a pussy compared to Kratos.
Also, they have different personalities and backgrounds. Batman is good. Kratos is an egoistic reckless maniac.
Altho I do agree of Kratos being high up there shouldn't be top ten but not even a mention of BJ from Wolfenstein 3d either? Cmon now. "He" spawned a genre that "everyone" plays now, MMO FPS games. This list must have been compiled by some young gamers or the list was only a limited multiple choice based survey. I just find it odd that some of you didn't even know who he was.
I mean cmon, Leon was a pansy compared to Chris in the RE series.
If I was a mod I would totally
Get out an even larger banstick because you would have to permaban me also.
16.Nathan Drake (Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Sony, 2007)
Sorry but i dont think Nathan Drake envokes legendary status or the spirit of gaming. Nathan Drake and Kratos are hardly legendary pop up characters of gaming. I would think it was more about how a character effected a series of games and fans.
Alex Kidd or what MailMan said about sub zero i agree they needed at least one MK character in there.
Jak from Jak and Dakstar no way man. TOTAL PISH! (pardon the language kids).
Why? Because I dared to say something against a guy in a bat suit?
Yes. That is exactly why actually.
Batman would make Kratos pull the baterang out of Kratos own ass so when Batman was breaking off in it he wouldn't have Bat-friction. The Bat has taken down bigger dipshits then crybaby Kratos.
I was looking to see Revan in there from KotOR but i guess he didn't reach the big times by most lol
Didn't you say you had to look Kratos up? So how do you know then that Bruce took down bigger guys than Kratos?
Also only 1 game. Not much impact there.
Dude, Pikachu is way too far down that list...
Batman fought Zeus.......and won.
Didn't Kratos kill Zeus?
While I don't really have an opinion of whether Kratos is more awesome than batman, or vice versa, I would like to point out that in the God of War series, Kratos takes down multiple Greek gods and titans, including Zeus
Edit: beaten to it xD
If you want to beat this list, look here. It may be our last hope.
Of course he did. After Zeus was already weak from Batman beating him down.
I see. Well Batman is awesome
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vm3rIGEnmYc - Batman dog ftw! (anyway to make it so you don't have to go to youtube to watch it?)
LOL! that's great! But yah, Batman in the video games' industry didn't do too too much. Comics, he is kickass!
