i cant really say anything ive ever played on pc contains characters that are / were unforgettable, bar 1 thats Minsc from Baldurs Gate - even then i only remember him due to the voice set being so funny.

heh minsc was a bit of a laugh. The only game character thats really stuck in my mind is conker, such a classic game that was, even if it was kinda infintile you couldnt help but laugh.
oh yeah and bullet reminds me of hitman, Mr 47 was actually a really good character and i liked the dramatical atmosphere of that game.

Heheh definatly Minsc (evil meet my sword, sword MEET EVIL)

Other than that I'd have to agree with Solid Snake. I've never played FF so I dont know any of those characters.

Grom Hellscream from the Warcraft Series rocked (Even more so after an heroic death)

For personality in character, definitely Minsc and Boo, and Imoen

Design and technical execution I'd say cyborg ninja from the metal gear solid twin snakes 30 minutes teaser movie [:)]

MoonUnit's picture

unknownuser1's picture

No paticular order.

Dante - DMC/DMC 2
Sephiroth - FF VII (go two metre long Katana :)~~~~~~)
Edea - FF VIII
Lulu - FF X
The Nameless One - Planescape Torment
Siegfried/Nightmare - Soul Calibur/SC 2
Christie - Dead Or Alive 3 (In her hidden outfit)... Actually, come to think of it... Any of the women from any of the DoA games (yeah yeah, sue me :D)

All the characters from Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future.

isnt it interesting how only a voice some dialogue & a portrait can make a character unforgettable ? there is virtually no detail 3d / model wise to minsc yet we all know him as that crazy bezerker with a space hampster called boo.

I think its the exact opposite of miming way back in the days of charly chaplin, being there was no sound - only gestures and movement to express the story.

Here we have a still portrait image and a voice for minsc - but no detailed 3d model anywhere in sight.

Well done to bioware for creating such an enigma in this day and age, where sumptous graphics seem to be taking over engrossing and unforgettable gameplay.

Jigen - you said in not so many words that there were almost none to remember or even see again, and that your favourite where charcaters of your own creation - why dont you share some of these characters with us ?

Bullet21 - this is minsc and imoen the charcaters from baldurs gate.

Mr 47 is a good character, too bad he doesn't have any hair though.

You know, when I read this post a few days ago, I've been scratching my head on who my favourite game characters really are.. I mean, I know tonnes of game characters, but most of them haven't reeeeally made a big impression on me to say that they're my 'favourite'. Anyway, I was kinda expecting a lot of posts mentioning characters from Final Fantasy, Lucasarts point'n click adventure games, and Sierra games. It's all that narrative and character building that goes on all the time, and not in quick cut scenes at the end of a level and a few grunts here ingame..

My favourite game character has to be Guybrush Threepwood from Monkey Island as well! I sitll have a boxed copy on my shelf, complete with anti-piracy turn wheel where you have to match the face combinations to start the game. When you started off as Guybrush Threepwood, you were a loser who aspired to be a pirate. At the end, you eventually became a pirate, but still pretty much a loser [:)] The humour in Monkey Island I and II was great, and when I saw Pirates of the Caribean, it just reminded me of the Monkey Island games.. [:)]

I can't think of any other favourite game characters.. Solid Snake was cool though.

Ok, I have to say Auran from FFX was very schmick! He was so cool, and I didn't even play the game that much[:(]
I have to say I loved Nordom the backwards Modron from Planescape: Torment(which is my fav game of all time)
ummmm I also liked Kimari from FFX he was cool too, oh and playing the old Rock n Roll racing I ALWAYS played Jake Badlands!! He was the most awesomest dude out there!! yayayay
But I like to play rpg's, I usually need to create my own character portrait before I can get into a game. ( often going thru several characters and halfway thru the game with each of them before I find a character that I like enough to take to the end of the game!)

*twitch* Oh my god man, what's wrong with you?! How can you forget Ben Throttle's name! This is truly disappointing :)

I like macho men (teehee) so Duke Nukem would have to be up there. One of the best comedy duos would have to be Sam'n'Max. And GuyBrush Threepwood is the coolest loser on the planet, not even Jason Biggs (Jim) can measure up!

Another cool character that no one knows about though would have to be The Spider from Azrael's Tear (at least thats what I remember calling him, he has another name but I can't remember it). Go out and play that game people, it's crap, but would be revolutionary if people used it's ideas with modern tech.

But top spot still goes to Guybrush :)

CYer, Blitz

Just wondering, how many Hentai Games have you been playing?

Blitz's picture

Lately, not many, they take up a lot of time! But back in uni and when i was being a bum i played all i could get my hands on :P
If you want a number...probably around 25-30 i guess.

Ah for me, I can't go past the sarcasm of Kerrigan from Starcraft :)

And while they're more caricatures than characters, there are some amusing moments with the mercs from Jagged Alliance 2 :)

Most of them. Some were absolute crap with insanely boring stories (yeah yeah :P), there were a couple that crashed in ceratin spots on my system so i couldn't finish them. But i probably finished about 85% or so of them. For the ones that had multiple alternate endings i usually didn't go through and get all the alternate endings etc...
I think there may have been one or 2 games that actually had some sort of gameplay that made finishing the game difficult that i may not have finished! :P Most of the games that had some sort of puzzle-solivng etc. that actually made continuing the game difficult weren't too hard, (most of them the puzzle solving/gameplay can affect what happens in the game, but won't actually prevent you from completing the game).
Hmm, kinda getting off-topic here :P
