TOP 100 VIDEO GAME CHARACTERS OF ALL TIME POLL - Countdown will start on Korean Tuesday, will accept lists up until first reveal because I am nice (and also one high position is tied and I want that tie broken)

Recommended Posts

As simple as the title suggests. Just send me your lists of the best game characters of all time. (console, handheld, PC< Cellphone all are valid) 

 

Lists can be any length from 10 up to 487. Eligible Characters include:

 

- Playable Characters

- NPCs

- Enemies

- Bosses

- Pretty much anything except custom made characters and sports players in sports sims. 

 

- No need to pick particular games, a character cannot be listed twice unless there is a clear massive difference in character to the point they are essentially something different (say like Arcade Donkey Kong Mario and then Mario Mario (and possibly Baby Mario?)

 

Overall, my feeling is that if 47 people vote for Cranky Kong, then that is vindication enough for his inclusion.

 

If a list is not ordered from 1st to whatever, an average score will be given to everyone on the list based on the size of the list.    

Spoiler

 

Scoring:

 

1st - 50

2nd - 42

3rd - 36

4th - 32

5th - 28

6-7th - 25

8-9th - 22

10-12th - 20

13-15th - 18

16-20th - 16

21-25th - 14

26-30th - 12

31-40th - 10

41-50th - 8

51-60th - 6 

61-70th - 4

71-80th - 3

81-90th - 2

91-100th - 1

 

Multi Votes:

 

2 votes - 25 pts

4 votes - 32 pts

6 votes - 40 pts

8 votes - 50 pts 

Every subsequent 2 votes: 10 more points.

@chasmmi I'm going to have to ask for one exception to your rules and it's the sports one and this only counts for one person.  I agree 100% that they shouldn't be included, but one specific player in one specific game has to be allowed

 

I hereby request that Bo Jackson from Techmo Bowl be that exception.  I think most would agree with me on this one ;)

A top 100??? That's way too much o_o

 

A) You have no need to get close to 100 characters if you wish. Top 20 or even 10 is more than fine.

 

B ) Even taking just the Mario franchise I could name about 20 arguably iconic characters in gaming: :D 

 

Mario

Luigi

Toad

Yoshi

Bowser

 

Wario

Waluigi

Lakushu (the cloud guy)

Koopa Trooper 

 

King Boo

Chomper

Bob-Omb

Peach

Bullet Bill

 

Toadette

Donkey Kong (via Kart)

Rosalina

Boom Boom

Wart

 

Obviously I wouldn't put them all in a top 100, but if we can make 100 games, we can collectively list 100 characters :)

Does custom made characters include characters like Revan or Commander Shepard?

 

I am generally flexible. I would say that Fable protagonist is fine to choose, a WWE14 CAW, not so much.

 

My general philosophy here is going to be, if enough people vote for it to make the list, then it is probably acceptable.

If voters agree, then it would be fine. 

 

Mike Tyson in Punch Out may be another eligible inclusion to some too.

Lol. How old school we talking?

 

well considering video games didn't really start until the 70s into the 80s, at least until then ;)
