Truly original video game characters are a bitch to find. And Duke drains his originality from...well, un-originality...or summin like that. Yes, Duke shouldn\'t be on any fav game chars toplist, unless it\'s shadic\'s. Ok, how about Pitfall Harry? He\'s cool...and ghey.
lol indeed, i mean he\'s the diffinition of a hero
gets a bunch of girls
gets big cool guns
smashes, blows up, obliderates(spelling), disitigrate, mames, mauls, and owns aliens and monsters.
and saves the world, of course he\'s a hero
Go for it, I know nothing about Anime outside Sonic X and the occasional video game anime.
Anyways, sorry I didnt update earlier guys, I was out all day :bounce:
Series: The Legend of Zelda
Everyone\'s fairy boy take number 3. Shigeru Miyamoto\'s created Link in 1987, back then his was nothing more than a generic sword-fighting hero. But, He\'s a real Hero! No joke, Legend Of Zelda 2: Links Adventure even says so at the end. The Legend of Zelda is easily one of the best gaming series ever, with this excellence comes a character that represents that excellence. What makes Link slightly more unique than other characters is; Link isn’t just one guy. As the series progresses, you learn that there\'s quite of few different Links, meaning different people with the name Link on different adventures. Each Link however shows the quality of courage and humbleness. They all basically look the same, each under the age of 17, light hair and green clothes (though they tend to change in some games). The name \"Link\" was chosen to show the relation between the character and the player, and later on to show \"Links\" between times and such. Link is easily one of the most well know gaming character, and a favorite among fans, even to the point of winning contest such as \"The Gamefaqs character battle\". Link really has no true abilities, he relies on his sword and other weapons. Link in many ways symbolized the \"adventurer\", which Miyamoto planned in LOZ. Link has been through even generation thus far ( with the exception of the newest. Which he will eventually) and in no way has he been hurt. Link remains a figure of gaming excellence.
What do you mean? There\'s games based on animes, which unless you like the anime you\'ll dislike. Then there\'s games in the style of anime, which alot of cartoony games are..
Anyways.. UH OH!? It\'S gOin DowN!!!! Number 2, the runner up!
Series: Super Mario
Mario, the best known video gaming icon ever. Mario made his debut in 1981 is \"Donkey Kong\", back then he was known as Jump man, and his looks were only used to separate colors. Jumpman was officially changed to Mario, named after Mario Segali Mario a land lord of Nintendo America. Mario gradually developed a biography and identity, becoming a plumber who, with his brother, save princesses in need. Mario loves the lady, he\'s not only made a habit of saving one princess.. but 3. Mario is generally a heroic and kind hearted guy, who just likes to help out people in need. Mario\'s impact on the gaming industry is the biggest any single character has had ever. Mario created the modern platformer. Super Mario 1, made in 1985, is considered to have the biggest impact of the gaming industry. Super Mario Brothers was and is still the best selling game of all time, even beating out such giants as Ocarina of Time and Halo. With Mario success came others who would copy Mario\'s style including: Pacman, Sonic, Klonoa, Crash bandicoot and basically any platformer series. Mario mastered the 2d platformer early on with Mario 1, Mario 3 and Super Mario World. But competitors like Sonic The Hedgehog gave Mario a run for his money with fast paced games and new innovations. In the early 90s Mario struggled to stick out in a world filled with newer platformers. As consoles gradually changed to 3d Nintendo once again looked to their Italian mascot to set the way. Super Mario 64 in 1996, and even though it wasn’t the first 3d platformer it revolutionized and defined the genre of 3d platformers. Mario 64 is still considered one, if not the best, game of all time. Mario is platforming, he\'s is the soul of the genre. Any platformer game you\'ll play was influenced by Mario. Mario has even influenced other genres including: fighting, racing, party, RPG and sports. Mario by now has over 106 games to his belt, most of which are great and sell great. Mario is the king Midus of gaming, and video games would never be the same without him. P.S: Paper Mario > Regular Mario
