Recently Gamefaqs started another contest on there main site. They are currently accepting nominations for characters in the contest. I myself am nominating characters, mostly from GTA. Sadly Grand Theft Auto has a not so great history in these contests because of a lack of fan support. GTA games sell very well and I am surprised by this. GTA needs more support in these contests against the overrated characters out there. I know the staff does not like people promoting stuff on other sites but this is something cool to gain our fandom some bragging rights but helping GTA by voting when the time comes would be greatly appreciated.

Go Grand Theft Auto!

Last time they did this, Legend of Zelda Majoras mask won by beating Super Smash Bros Brawl

P.s this should be in the Gaming Chat

This is characters not games. I nominated Tommy, Niko and Claude so far. If any of you have Gamefaqs accounts or want to sign up go ahead and nominate Grand Theft Auto characters. Then rally every GTA fan you know. We can pull this off if we get enough people to support GTA characters.

Nintendo games in the finals, who would have thought? I think Majora's Mask is one of the most overrated Zelda games out there, if not just an overrated game in general.

I said before and I will say it again, people can nominate GTA CHARACTERS to be in a character popularity contest. I have made some of my nominations and I will make the rest of them soon.

Think you might be mistaken for Ocarina of Time.

Either way, it was a Zelda game

Still we have a chance for a GTA character to win if we plan well enough in advance. That would be just awesome.

Most people I try to talk to about GTA could care less about the story. It's something I don't understand, but most people buy GTA for the free-roam aspect.

If we're going to get a GTA character to win this, we'll need to get organized and choose one overall character we want to win. Then we all vote for that one character, so the votes aren't spread out across the characters.

I would like to see a non Nintendo character to win something for once. Spoilered for hate I'll get: I think most big name Nintendo games are pretty overrated.

No, I love that game. I played through it 4 times on the 3DS version.

I just felt Majora's Mask was a little too different. It felt needlessly complex and the story wasn't anything special.

Personally, Majora's Mask was the most special when it came to the story, Because it's like the only game in the series that isn't about rescuing a perfectly capable Princess from that gannon fellow.

I won't deny that the story was the most unique, it just wasn't for me personally. I never really got into the characters and I still saw them as their OOT counterparts because of the recycled models.

Apparently I have an account for gamefaqs. That's new to me. And what is even going on in this thread?

And here are my nominations. I tried to avoid Nintendo games, but Psyduck's not going to win anyway.

I'm so voting for Psyduck.

EDIT: Shame LSD Dream Emulator is so slow and annoying with the foot step sound effects. They should remake that game on nextgen consoles, create something beautifully trippy. The Grey Man kind of reminds me of Slender Man.

I had that idea about a year ago. I tried making cover art, which consoles it would release on, and how long development would take. It's impossible to find a copy of the game now, which is why it would be awesome for a new version to come out.

The GTA characters are bland as hell, that's why they don't win.

I don't think it would work so well on newer consoles. Lots of the weirdness and horror came from the awful engine it runs on that makes entire objects disappear for no reason, or makes things only appear when they're two feet in front of you. And the blocky graphics were also a good bad thing that gave the game a certain atmosphere. You could intentionally make the game bad in the good ways, but I don't think it'd work so well.

(And there have been remake attempts in the past (and one other that I've heard of), but nothing has came out of any of them yet.)
