I have a VERY long list XD
But if I had to choose just one, it would be Ratchet.
He is just so awesome and I've played every game, and really enjoyed every one.
His voice is cool, he's funny, cute, heroic and has a badass collection of guns and gadgets XD
So he probably gets no. 1 on my list ^^
runners up, just for the hell of it: crash bandicoot, Nathan Drake, Spyro, Amaterasu (okami), Zack Fair (ffvii), Sora/Roxas/Ven (kingdom Hearts), GLaDOS, Jak, Tidus...THE LIST GOES ON XD
ps: I made that pic XD
I'm having a tough time deciding between lots of 'em:
All the Katamari characters
Ryo Hazuki (Shenmue)
Kang the Mad (Jade Empire)
So I'll just randomly pick The Great Mighty Poo
hard to say, but one of them is Wheatley of Portal 2. that little idiot is so loveable during the first half of the game, u just dont want him to go into space w/ the most annoying core as his only companion, even if he did try to kill u *multiple times*
This IS a really tough choice. I never thought about it before for some reason. Usually I love to pick favorites. Some certainly include the guys who got me started on gaming: Paperboy, the guy from Joust, KATZ, the Rampage crew, the Nethack @, the straight Tetris blocks...and of course, I do love Luigi.
Unorthodox for "characters", I know. Hmm, but for favorite...*taps chin* would it be too stupid/un-gamerly/early to put in a vote for Fix-It Felix Jr.? I know he's new and didn't START in a game, and doesn't technically count, but I really love playing the version they made...if not, go with the Joust guy. Love that little ostrich-rider man. ^-^
Gah, I probably sound like an idiot who doesn't even play, but none of my favorite characters would be any of the cool ones. They'd be stupid, silly little characters from things that give me nostalgia and just make me happy. = /
My favourite video game character ever is King Dedede from the Kirby series, I feel a bit identified with him, I love his theme song, his design and attacks. He first appeared in ''Kirby's Dream Land'' in 1992 and has appeared in multiple games since then.
