It's simple, pick any protagonist from any video game and give your reasons why.

 

For me, it would be a four way tie between John Marston ( Red Dead Redemption), Johnny Klebitz (The Lost and Damned),  Naked Snake (Metal Gear Solid) and James Sunderland (Silent Hill 2).

Indiana Jones, Captain Picard, Peter Venkman or... Captain Malcolm Reynolds.

 

Because they are the best of the best of the best.

How did I not think  of Indiana Jones or Peter Venkman, the king of deadpan snarker?

If this is not videogame protagonist-only, this should be moved somewhere else.

I started it in general chat, then a mod moved it here, despite me saying in the first post,

 

 

It's simple, pick any protagonist from any media (anime, video games, western animation, live action Tv, etc...).

Let's keep this strictly game characters if it's going to stay in gaming. I didn't move it, but I think it's a pretty good topic for here.

Well... I believe all of these fellas are in a video game, but to make it a little more gamey;

 

John Marston, Tommy Vercetti, Commander Shepard, Laura Croft (would make a mirror a hell of a lot more interesting) and my guy from GTA:O, "Denver".

Not sure why anyone would pick a protagonist we know who dies, not really a smart idea.

 

Guess we all gotta go some day right ?

 

As far as protagonist, definitely not anyone from GTA.  All the GTA protagonists had extremely hard lives, went thru war, fed time, suffered the loss of their closest friends and family, etc.

The Lone Wanderer.

 

So open ended, they could be whoever I wanted ..in a post apocalyptic setting of course.

For obvious reasons, I don't think it'd be a good idea to choose a protagonist who gets shot at all the time...

Maybe the Champion of Cyrodiil from TES IV: Oblivion. After going into the depths of hell and back on several different occasions, as well as the dungeon delving you do on the Emperor's behalf, things wouldn't be so bad once the Oblivion Crisis is over with. Plus, you can heal any wounds you receive in an instant, as you always have that healing spell at your disposal.

I might choose The Lone Wanderer or The Courier, but for the times that you aren't getting shot at, you'd be hooked up to Stimpaks and RadAway in your free time because of all of the bullets and cuts you've received, and because of the irratiated food and water you have consumed. It would be a very painful lifestyle.

The Dragonborn from Skyrim would be my first choice, since it's fairly open ended.

 

But for pure cheesy hero factor, it would be either Master Chief or Link. Master Chief because running around the battlefield rescuing trapped space marines and having them voice their relief that you've arrived always gave me a bit of a hero boner. Link because he's sort of like the ultimate selfless fantasy hero who rises up to vanquish evil, while helping lots of little people with their trivial bullsh*t problems along the way. Also the LoZ theme is pretty awesome.

Obviously Prophet from the Crysis franchise. I would love to have that f*cking nanosuit. Cloak mode would be my favourite option  :devil:

Naked snake (Big Boss) from MGS, or the courier from Fallout New Vegas, specifically own courier because he's one jammy b***ard with a ton of charisma and likeability.

Cos in the world of being an attorney in LA, all you need is a plant.

That plant's been around with Wright more than any assistant after all.  :lol:

why would people choose john marston, johnny k, max payne, etc? being able to shoot guns and be badass is nice and all, but think of the crap these people have to go through. losing family, being betrayed by your gang, becoming out of character and getting cheaply killed with a bottle by a douchebag... i would not want to be in these situations...

i choose franklin, because i become a billionaire at the end of the game, and i get to decide trevor's fate
