I will give you third, but this is one mean bitch.




Seriously that woman drives big ass pickup and was really skilled... I admire her!


And Shaundi from Saints row 3 and 4. She was femme fatale in these games.


Third Roman Bellic, that guy is tresure!

There are so many wonderful video game characters I've seen over the year protagonists and non-protagonists alike so limiting it to just three is hard for me as I could literally write a list pages long.


However I choose Niko, Ellie and Arthur. As far as protagonists are concerned these three are top shelf. I love their stories, personalities, characterisation etc. Easily some of if not the most memorable in the 3 decades or so I've been gaming.

Scarface: The World Is Yours  André Sogliuzzo  doing  Tony Montana  voice


splinter cell chaos theory Sam Fisher or all  his lines in that game


The third one I haven't decided on, but  leaning towards  assassin's creed odyssey Alexios, got tired of the Fallout 4  male character voice, main character

  • Arthur Morgan (probably the deepest, most humane and fleshed-out videogame character for me) 
  • Tommy Vercetti - I just like his attitude. He's not particularly deep or well-rounded. He's just personifies that kind of GTA style so well. He's perfect for GTA and GTA is perfect for him. 
  • Commander Sheppard - I don't know, playing through Mass Effect triology and I just like his reasoning, be it for good or bad. 

Honourable mentions: V, CJ, Niko Belic, Agent 47, Max Payne, Master Chief. 


EDIT: How could I forget V?!

Michael Townley (GTA V) 

Big Boss (Metal Gear Solid series) 

My gaming experience is too limited to choose a third but I think I will like Ezio Auditore (AC II)

Three?  I'll name two and the cast of an entire game....

SHODAN - System Shock :



Long before GLaDOS there was something darker, something more unsettling about rogue machines and the systems controlling them, and SHODAN is the creepiest and most unsettling of antagonists out there.  Even though she's more the puppet master and heard in that totally unnatural way, rather than seen, the knowledge of her lurking in the background is totally unnerving, and it's tied to the fact her language and skill at degrading you are unmatched.  When you realise you are the insect, it brings home just how small you are in her games.


I'm just glad Terri Brosius and her husband are back for the new remake of System Shock 1 and upcoming sequel of S.S. 3.


All the Characters of Wildermyth :




Alright, this one will take some explaining....  Looking at these static paper cutouts might not seem to suggest character, but you make them, develop them, turn them into who they are, and the game rewards you with some of the best character progression and design ever.  They change, form friendships, romance and rivalries, gear up, have children, and age....  Old generations retire and pass their story on for their kids to finish, and all the while the game makes simple characters totally lovable through the constant stories it tells, and each one is unique to that character, you'll never roll it again.  It's a masterful display of roguelike progression and something many AAA titles could learn from when trying to make characters!


Lea - Crosscode :






If you ever want an example of how to make a silent protagonist, I present to you the sassiest, most lovable silent protag ever.  She has few actual words, but the expressions alone tell you her emotions at every single step of the game, even down to the fact you can tell when she's making fun of the other members of the cast!  It's a masterclass of pixel art, backed up by a story that lets the entire crew shine (Emilie alone could be on this list too, since she just so believable as a character due to her quirks) and it's a cruel shame that this title is so cruelly overlooked.  It deserves better!

I could do this all day and can think of fifty characters to name here. So instead I just said screw it and went full Borderlands.
