Out of all the video game characters out there, which one do you think is the most underrated? And should have more games?

My pick, 100%, is Wario. He's the coolest anti-hero Nintendo has, and every game he's been in has been amazing. Very interactive, and Wario has such a strong personality he'll make you smile no matter what stressful situation you're facing. Also feels like he has the weirdest baddies in his games, and the most trippy and cartoonish worlds.

I have seen the art. The cleavage level is comparable to a T rated @TheShadling post. I guess it's okay if you want your mario to be more mundane and fan service filled.

Reeve from FFVII. He's not as bad as he could've been.

Not mad, just saying you shouldn't really favour a character off of fan service. I believe it is a good platformer, but I'm just not buying the whole character thing.

he said he liked the game because of the art and music. there's nothing wrong with a sexualized female video game character anyway, the games are lighthearted and fun.

Cait Sith. He was the only character trying to make the grindfest fun, and too many FF fans waste their time shitting on him anyhow. I never see any of the other characters with Gambler job abilities from the series catching the kind of hate he receives. It ain't right.

One is Cid Highwind from ffvii. In a group of super soldiers, resistance leaders, a genetic experiment, the final member of a race or two, you have this guy who is old, smokes cigarettes and couldn't give a fuck except he is going to use his expert is do what he thinks is right all swearing be damned. He seemed the most human for me, and I would have loved him being in his own game.

I would like to think of a better answer then that but I can't right now.

Cryptosporidium 137, Definitely. And maybe Jack Cayman too. Along with The Postal Dude.

Underrated dude, underrated...Gordon Freeman has a fucking cult...obviously.

I say Griz from Rise of the Kasai. He was an old man, but dude...he could kick some serious ass.


Show some love.

Gares from "Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen"

This is a guy who when you first meet is an intimidating foe. Not too difficult to beat though... the first time. He comes back again though, stronger this time. Another time he just up and started cloning himself, so regular battles could involve one of his clones, which are just as strong as he is. Then he is one of the last battles in the game. He just won't die!

Death from Darksiders 2. I came into the game expecting him to be some corny edgelord, but he turned out to be a sassy little brat. The bantz between him & every NPC was entertaining.

Silent/First Person protags are boring. You're just inserting your own personality into them.

KOS-MOS from Xenosaga. Anyone who followed that game, knows that Namco was using that to help sell the game and the game isn't that bad. KOS-MOS was a good character of the last decade, so I think she deserves some more attention.

I'm glad to see that trend dying out. Always believe it started because of technology limitations when they first came around, and then became a trend in later games out of lazy writers being lazy. the whole self projection thing was just a clever excuse.


I'm the guy with the funny name.
