I hated that game everything took days. jsut to get a jeep to a certain place took so long, i gave up and threw it away. The robots were funny though.

JohnN: come on man, who/what is @? Is that a game with ASCII graphics or something? If you don?t tell us, then that post counts as spam! [:P]

My favourite game characters (in no order ? and I?m sure I?ve missed some):

Lara Croft (I can?t believe no one?s mentioned that Brit babe!)
Raziel from Soul Reaver
Kane from Legacy of Kane (These games have the coolest vision of vampires)
My main Everquest character
Duke Nukem
Wonder boy [:D]
Sonic the Hedgehog
Mario and Luigi from the original Nintendo hand helds
The Ninja turtles from the arcade coin-op
Max Payne
Too many characters from the Final Fantasy games to mention
Too many characters from Tekken style beat ?em ups to mention.

Good guess with the ascii graphics Palantir!

@ is the player character in nethack. You can't help but get attached to the little guy (or girl). Not much to look at but beauty is more than skin deep, even in the digital world :)

Heh like the piccie. Also has some pretty amazing gameplay in the logic it applies to items. Eg reading curses while confused ends up blessing IIRC...

But I do hate the way if start the game doing everything right, sometimes you die of starvation :-(

Princey, Princey, Princey, how could you all forget?

And what about Kefka from FFVI? He's total evil.

And what about the Wanderer from Fallout?

Guybrush Threepwood stinks arse (in my opinion), I find all those old click and point adventures tiresome and the humour VERY bad.

And what about JC Denton? He wears sunglasses at night you know.

And what about Boogerman? Earthworm Jim? Plok? Bubba and Stix? Landstalker (Nigel something was his name)? Kid Chameleon? Wonder Boy? Alex Kidd? Shadow of the Beast? The Stormmaster? etcetera, etcetera...

And what about ........ Wonder Boy? ...

I said Wonder Boy! (That and Hang-on were the only games I had on the Master System for the first year - I completed Wonder Boy about a dozen times. Best platform game EVER!)

-But I'm surprised no one really cares about Lara Croft - probably the most well know game character ever. Or has she just gone too mainstream? Those early playstation days were classic.

Cm2, if you really must have an answer I'd probably have to say Nigel from Landstalker, he wanted nothing more than wealth, but he ended up falling in love with a fairy, a real small one too.

did anyone play the original phantasy star series ? i have I, II and III the first was on the master system, 2nd and 3rd on megadrive. Man those games rocked, and were my first foray into the RPG world - been hooked ever since.

Some of the characters were definatley forgettable - hell i cant even remember a single name,.. oh hang on ODIN! there we go... cool games tho!

(i) HK-47 (KOTOR) Damn funny Bender-like droid.
(ii) Several characters from Another War.. if you've played it remember the three-handed axe?
(iii) Yep Minsc was funny, especially when you squeezed his hamster.
(iv) The wise-ass beholder in baldur's gate (forget which one).
(v) There was a lot of humour in the old Infocom game characters, and also Delta-4's stuff.. the Boggit etc.. but that's old stuff.
