My Top Ten Video Game Characters

Spread the Word!

Here are my top 10 video game characters of all time. I really need to update this list.

#10   Image

Kaim is from a game called Lost Odyssey. He’s as damaged as a character can get having lived for thousands of years and never knowing what it feels like to die. He’s had wives, children, and friends and he’s watched them all die while he’s forced to carry on with his immortality. If you’ve never played Lost Odyssey you should.

Kreia is from Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic 2. She’s the exile’s adviser, and teacher. Her methods are cold but she is an awesome character with a lot of secrets. She cares for the exile and guides him to his destiny throughout this awesome game.

Chris Redfield needs no introduction. He’s probably the oldest character on my list. But for those of you that don’t know he’s from the original Resident Evil game and he’s still around kicking zombie ass. Chris is another really damaged character. He lost two partners, lost his memory, and has been in more shit than just about any other character I can name. He earns a number 8 spot on my list.

#7 Image

Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher. A Witcher is a monster hunter. Geralt lost his memories and is on a quest to rescue his beloved Trish and clear his name by killing the Kingslayer. The Witcher series are some of my favorite games ever and I highly recommend giving them a shot.

So much for Chris being the oldest character on the list. Leonardo is the leader of the Ninja Turtles and has led his brothers against numerous different threats. He is a true leader and will do anything to save the ones he cares about. He’s even defeated Shredder alone. Leonardo is a true badass.

#5 Image

Shale is from Dragon Age Origins. She’s a witty golem with a fear of birds. I fell in love with her character and laughed at just about everything she had to say. Did you guys hear that? There could be pigeons about…

#4 Image

Commander Sheperd is the leader of the Normandy and is the galaxy’s only hope against stopping the Reapers. There aren’t many characters I love more then Sheperd. I love him/her badass attitude and never backing down from a fight no matter how much the odds are stacked against them.

#3 Image

Handsome Jack is the all time best villain I have ever went up against in a game. He talks crap to you the entire time and when you finally have a chance to meet him face to face it’s so worth it. His dialogue is some of the best i’ve ever heard and he’s such an asshole you can’t help but love him at the end of the day.

#2 Image

Liara T’Soni is Sheperd’s lover. When she was first introduced she was this shy Asari scientist with a crush on Sheperd. A few games later she’s a badass Asari scientist that’s banging Sheperd. I absolutely loved every moment I had learning more about Dr. Liara T’Soni.

#1 Image

Systems failing master! HK-47 is a psychopathic android that loves killing meatbags. He was first introduced in Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic 1 and I loved everything about him. If he’s not killing something then he’s not happy. Unless of course he’s insulting you with one of his many insults. Hk-47 is the best character of all time!

    Handsome Jack is amazing. I love him so much, he has the best dialogue.
    I also totally aprove of Shale, Commander Shepherd, and Liara. Although personally I would have chose Garrus over Liara, haha.

      This was a very hard list for me to make. I wanted to include Tali, Garrus, Mordin, Zevran, and many other characters that I love but I went with the characters I thought were best to me. I might make a top 20 list later… and yes Handsome Jack is the best villain i’ve fought against in game. He had to be on this list.

    Gah, this just reminded me of how badly I need to play KOTOR. Would I need a special controller to play it on Steam? Could I just use my Dualshock 3?
