Batman isn't really a new character though.

I think Wrex > Illusive Man.

Dominic Santiago should not be there; replace him with someone with more personality. Cortana?

Totally agree with HK-47 though.

No argument with #1 though; that character launched a generation of games.

Definitely agree with #1, since those games brought in many "non-gamers" long before Guitar Hero or Wii Sports. And they got the Assassins Creed characters in the right order :D

Ah, didn't know that "new" was a criteria. I don't have a Game Informer account, and I wasn't about to make one.

I don't know any of those names :lol:

When I saw Alan Wake, I was like, "OH I KNOW THAT NA... No wait. Nevermind." I was mixing up Rick Wakeman and Alan White of Yes :lol:

Oh, "new" characters :yesway:
Well, it's not really "new", it's the characters from the last 10 years. Arkham Asylum was, no doubt, a bad as fuck :metal: game, but the Batman character wasn't really the reason why. The same can't be said for Shepard, Ezio, etc.

Video game characters. Hence this post being in the Gaming forum. :lol: If you stepped away from Minecrack for 5 minutes and bought a console, you'd probably be familiar with some of them. :lol:

Spoken like a true meatbag.

"Translation: 98% probability that members of the miniature organic's tribe are being held by Sand People, master. Doubtless he wishes assistance. ... Translation: 2% probability that the miniature organic is simply looking for trouble and needs to be blasted. That may be wishful thinking on my part, master."

After picking him up he was always in my party :lol:

Pretty solid list. :yesway:

Totally should've been replaced by Kyle Katarn, Darth Revan, or your personal favorite Ryu Hayabusa :agreed:
