The 4 Greatest Video Game Characters Of All Time


Recommended Posts

So, I'm starting a new series on my channel called the Mt. Rushmore series. In it, I take a topic and give you my four top choices to put on a mythical Mt. Rushmore. I also thought it might make for some good forum topics.

 

Today I give you my choices for the four greatest video game characters of all time:

 

 

So what four video game characters would you put on your Mt. Rushmore?

No worries about spoilers here!

 

So far it seems the weakest link on my list is Link! Sonic seems to be second

 

Some other possibilities that have been mentioned under my video include Donkey Kong, Master Chief, Mega Man & Pitfall Harry!

Well lets see my second set of 4 would be

 

Mega Man

Q Bert

Donkey Kong

Samus

 

Oh, and btw, I'm already considering doing a part 2 with my next four picks, but I'm going to try and do more original topics before do repeat ones. Ideally, I want to release one every Monday, but I've been busy at home, so we'll see if I can do it that often.

I can't disagree with your list.  But I do have some additional characters to consider:

 

- Donkey Kong

- Gordon Freeman.

- Samus

- Master Chief

- Duke Nukem

- Pikachu

- GlaDOS 

 

I could go on an on.  We've been lucky to have so many great characters!

 

I might include some of those on a future list....

 

 

I came up with the first three, but instead of link, the only thing I could think of was Master Chief, great video BTW.

 

Thank you! MC is one getting a few mentions

 

 

Mario first, then Sonic, then Pac Man, and finally, Frogger! I'd say in order of importance and popularity, that's how it should be. Anyone else agree with me on Frogger?

 

For me, characters like Frogger, Bentley Bear, Peter Pepper and Q*bert are very cool, but they didn't do a lot pass their original game. Some had sequels, but they didn't make much noise.

In no particular order:

 

- Pac-Man; He from who all Pacs sprang

- Commander Shepherd; my favorite character from the modern era. It's a big plus that you can play as either male or female.

- Mario; No explanation needed.

- Link; It's always a joy to take a trip through Hyrule.

 

Honorable mentions: Megaman, Q-Bert, Sonic, Donkey Kong, Billy Lee & Jimmy Lee, Raziel, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Master Chief, Simon Belmont, Lara Croft
