Top 50 Game Characters by Guinness



Guinness World Records has announced its top 50 video game characters of all time.

Over 13,000 gaming fans voted to help compile the list, with Guinness proclaiming that "Mario bounced over Solid Snake, Pac-Man chewed up Kratos and Lara Croft barrelled through Donkey Kong".

The character that gives this site some joy was seeing Master Chief  and Marcus Fenix rated so highly.  I don't understand why August Cole from Gears makes an appearance on the list, he just annoys me! Slightly sad that Commander Keen isn't there!
