Basically, what character do you think has the best or worst design. I'll start.

You think that Sora from Kingdom Hearts is a horribly designed char?

You obviously know nothing about character design, how hard it is, and how much effort is put into making even one model. Kingdom Hearts, just by itself in an amazing game, which is lots of fun. And all of the Disney characters recreated in the game look amazing.
Just makes me go "What the F are you on?!" when you post stuff like this.

Shame on you.

THIS Is horrible character design;

I have to agree here. Ezio's design is pretty awesome. But I can't agree with you on worst. Sora's design is pretty awesome as well.

Since Ezio is taken, I'll go with this guy:

And the worst:

Anyone from Final Fantasy, really.

I don't have a worst design, and it would be unfair to show something from a game that was made in 2000.
Something I recently played and loved the design was from the nameless hero (risen 2)

Worst: Team Fortress. That's just my personal taste. That style has been done to death. I think it's cheesy or something too.

Also: Saints Row characters and peds are stupid looking. The outfits are also stupid.

Best:Max Payne at the time was brilliant. I think everyone was amazed at rig swaying jacket. Them was great back in the day.

LA Noire, possibly?

best character desing:

Snake (not Big boss)

worst character desing:

now you'll kill me... but Victor vance (vcs)

I think it's the most uninspired protagonist (i'm talking only about his look, not the storyline)... it's just a stereotypical tough guy in a blank shirt and jeans, very anonymous. even lance is less anonymous than him.

All the protagonists of the Crysis series are amazing - not just because they are showed in superb graphics, but I like how they worked with the exact shape of the human body with all these robotic things:

Another one that can't be missed - you can clearly see his whole life just by looking at his face:

For the ugliest, I'd pick Raz, from Psychonauts - he's from 2005, so I won't give him any credit:

Worst: Master Chief from Halo. I was drawing stuff like that as a kid. It's boring and generic.

Best: Red Dead Redemption. It was diverse and completely original. John Marston isn't the typical hero. Be's beaten and scarred. It's perhaps the best bit of voice casting I've seen in a game.

I think games using real life likenesses deserve an honorable mention. LA Noire's casting of Aaron Staton, Lost Planet's casting of Korean star Lee Byung-Hun, and Alan Wake with the Finnish actor. The list goes on. The ones I mentioned though are very interesting and good choices for the lead likeness.

Not only does he have an awesome character design, he also has a good story.

Best would be Nathan Drake in Uncharted,simple but effective design.
Worst would be Kai Leng in Mass Effect 3,guy was totally out of place in that game.

Looks like he's from Deus Ex, but nowhere near a bad design.

Never really played the Soul Reaver games much but always thought Raziel's design was pretty cool.

Also i liked Rikimaru from Tenchu, although it's pretty much just a generic ninja outfit.

It's not so much Sora himself, it's this one outfit that he wears that really irks me. He's not the worst, but he's definitely not the best imo. Maybe I just have bad taste, since thousands of people obviously disagree with me. sad.gif

Points awarded. Ayame was pretty bad ass as well.

Simple. Functional. Iconic. Dare I say, "perfect"?

"Ambiguous" would be kind. Ripping off Flava Flav. Seriously, what the flying f*ck?

Which is why it's a bad design, he doesn't fit in with the rest of the game. You can have a character that stands out, but there is a fine line between standing out and out of place. Kai Leng is out of place.
