    For me, its Sonic. I mean come on, a cool blue hedgehog who can run stupendously fast!!

    Anyone else? Mario, Gordon Freeman, the dude from Halo, Doom Guy? It doesn't have to be the lead character of a game, just *any* character and it doesn't have to be for good games or not. :)

    Does anyone remember Bubsy on SNES? I always thought he was pretty cool for some reason.

    I remember him. It's too bad those games were so awful.

    I have to go with Pac-Man for my favorite character. Top 5 would probably include Earthworm Jim, Dirk the Daring (Dragon's Lair), Ulala (Space Channel 5), Mega Man, and about 20 tied for 5th place :)

    However if you are saying just any character in general, that's much tougher to choose from. I can think of a ton of games with cool boss characters I could choose.

    Princess Peach/Toadstool.

    No matter what kind of danger she's in, or how many times she has to try and save the Mushroom Kingdom from Bowser, she always dresses for the occasion.

    Bren McGuire. Look at that chin. Super retro 90's germans imitating the anime style! booyah! Better than Samus? Potentially! The games are virtually the same (Metroid - open, Turrican - linear.)

    Shame the new Sonic game is apparantly awful :(

    Some of it looks simply hilarious. Whoevers idea it was for Sonic to have a love interest - a human love interest at that - does not deserve to have the brain he/she quite obviously rarely uses.

    Motion carried! Those games are *awesome*, Threepwood's the man!

    FleurDuMal, you're right about the Sonic game. All of the post Genesis/Mega Drive games have been turd. The character's still the coolest though!!
