Hey, so I stole Sirmethos' idea and decided to do this thing. This week's theme is Video Game Protagonists. Voting closes next Friday, upon which I will write the article on EF's main blog. I only included people from games I've actually played, so in case you're wondering why I didn't include Solid Snake or Kratos or Nathan Drake-- I don't have a PS3. Basically, if there's someone not on the list, add a comment saying who, and every person who likes your comment will count as an additional vote. Of course, this opens up the opportunity for a person to vote twice, but whatever. I'll see if I can actually write an article on the person, and if I can't, but he wins, I'll see if someone else might be willing to write it.

Hmm... I would say Duke Nukem (since his character is literally badass personified), but Duke Nukem Forever kinda ruined the entire thing for me...

At the moment, from the initial list, I'm kinda torn between Gordon Freeman and Isaac Clarke, simply because I really like the idea of someone with no real combat experience grabbing a powered suit, high-tech weapons (which, in some cases, weren't meant to be used as weapons at all) and fighting their way through hostile aliens. I might give it to Freeman in this case, just because he faced a far wider variety of aliens than Isaac.

Edit: Asura is just Asian Kratos on steroids. :P However, if I may throw my own contender into the mix:

Xp Asura would woop Kratos ass! Lets see Kratos destroy planets, stars, and the creator of all things!

Kratos had blades and tons of weapons and magic and helpers and tons of other stuff. Asura has anger, revenge and FISTS!

Just like Force, I can only comment/vote for who I know/have played as.


As such, my vote goes to War from Darksiders.

There is something badass about playing a horseman of the apocalypse, and being a part of the destruction of the human civilization.

Definitely agree with Kain on this.

War ftw. The only one I can think of that would take it over War, would be if Darksiders 2 had been released and Death was an option :)

Death looks too badass for words to describe. Darksiders 2 is probably my most anticipated game this year.

I voted for Shepard, it's more of a scale thing for me. Shepard saves a whole goddamn galaxy. Three times (4 if you count Arrival).

Hakan from Super Street Fighter 4! Why? Because he poors oil all over his body and hugs people to death! If that's not badass then I don't know what is.

And yet, no one has used him in a match. *Hint hint* ;)
