  1. This list is so wrong, I can’t believe you guys didn’t include
    Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII or
    Lara Croft from Tomb Raider or
    Sonic the Hedgehog or
    Ryu from Street Fighter or
    Snake from Metal Gear Solid or
    Link from Zelda
    Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat

  2. Man, this list is very incomplete.

    Link from Zelda?
    Samas Aran from MegaMan?
    Lara Croft?
    James Bond from GoldenEye? (Might not count)

  3. Definitely casting my votes for the following, in no particular order:

    Donkey Kong
    Lara Croft
    Francsis, Zoey, Louis, and Bill
    Cloud Stryfe OR Sephiroth
    Master Chief
    Gordan Freeman
    Pac-Man 😉
    Ryu Hayubusa

    If the game franchises need mentioning, then obviously, they’re not *that* famous 😉

  4. NFS Most Wanted… WTF! o.o’

    plus you forgot Snake, Guybrush Threepwood, Clank, Duke Nukem, Albert Wesker, Max Payne, Leon Scott Kennedy, Soap and a bunch more… *shakes head*

  5. For me, Super Mario Bros has got to be the one. None of the others can compete. Just my opinion. I know some of you will be screaming at your computer screens in disagreement right now.

  6. What a fail.. it’s named “Popular Game Characters of all time”.. and then there is a list of game names or franchises xD if you want to make a list of characters, why don’t you post their names?

    Also: Samus may be one of the most popular game characters, but neither her name nor her game is called “Mega Man” xD She is not even a man…

    Also no babyface star could replace the old man Max Pain is for me:
