Top 5 Characters of 2008

Top 5 Characters of 2008

So the end of the year is near, the game releases are drying up, that means there’s only one thing left to do ... Yes, that’s right, to sum the year up in a series of lists and features. Hoorah.

This week, the last full week before Christmas, we’ll be running a series of “Top 5” features that the staff have been discussing for some time now, finally culminating in our end of year awards just before Christmas. Then rumour has it, we can go and get seriously drunk and fat over the festive period without a care in the world.

Kicking off the first of 5 “Top 5” features, we thought we’d look at the best characters of the year. We’re not talking necessarily the biggest and baddest heroes; sometimes wit, humour and sarcasm are more important than skill and strength ... Well, to us it is.

Lara maybe a veteran in the games industry but we’ve never seen her like she was this year in Underworld. More polygons than ever, smoother animations and she even gets dirty when she rolls around on the floor ... fancy that! Throw in her cool, calm and slightly sarcastic, arrogant tone and you have all the makings for a killer character. Doesn’t look bad for a lass whose spent 12 years raiding tombs ... I mean, take a look at Harrison Ford in “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and you’ll see our point ... Mommy, I don’t want to get old.


Starkiller is the only "villain" to make the Top 5 Characters List this year but according to producer, Haden Blackman, he’s more of a "damaged kid" than a villain. Starkiller is of course the protagonist of this year’s Star Wars title, The Force Unleashed and is so badass he doesn’t need a name, he just goes by his alias ... Actually, that’s not true, his name is Galen Marek and as you’ll agree, it doesn’t have the same edge. But only those who’ve read the book or have awesome Google skills know that *waves hand*

He’s a complicated character whose inner struggle is part of his charm; cool, blunt and arrogant ... but wouldn’t you be if you had the chance to wield the lightsaber of the dark side? I know I would.


Augustus Cole ... AKA The Cole Train, is a loudmouthed, outgoing and obnoxious ex-professional “thrashball” player and certainly the most outlandish character in the Gears of War’s Delta Squad. The first title in the series had him yelling his own name and being a little too enthusiastic in battle, but it wasn’t until the sequel that this bad boy truly entered our hearts. Gears 2 of course brought round more classic “Cole Trainisms” but his truly crowning moment is his rant over the tannoy system aimed at the Queen Locust and her followers.

If you haven’t seen it, check it out below, if you have seen it, reminisce a little. Beware though, if you haven’t completed the game, this clip may contain spoilers and the language is a little blue.


When the first GTA IV trailer dropped last year and we heard Niko speak for the first time, people were very apprehensive about playing as this Eastern European character in a role traditionally taken by Americans. It’s true what they say though, change can unnerve even the strongest of us. However, thanks to a stunning performance by Michael Hollick, Niko Bellic was an instant hit.

A character with a troubled upbringing which has forced him to be cool, calm and calculated, is more than just a brutal psychopath. His dry humour, one liners and moments of compassion build up one of the most complex video game characters that we’ve ever seen.

However, thanks to Hollick’s disgust at get paid $1,050 a day, it’ll probably be the last we see of him, so it’s fairly short lived ... Who says actors aren’t greedy?


The Prince of Persia has been a gaming character longer than I’ve been an adult (let me tell you, that’s a fair few years as well) and while other veterans, a la Lara Croft, have stayed true to their roots throughout, the Prince was totally revamped this year ... and I’m not sure any of us were prepared for it.

The new Prince not only has a new vagabond look, but he has a persona that you can’t help but love; I thought I was dry and sarcastic, but he puts me to shame on so many levels. Whether it’s his playful tone, his amusing one liners, his super dry sarcasm or his general cheekiness; he’s easily the best Prince we’ve ever been faced with and will most certainly provide you with plenty of laugh out loud moments.

This is a good list. I would have kept Lara at five, placed the Prince at four, dropped Niko to three, put Starkiller at two, and given the top spot to Cole . . . but that's just me.

Niko is crap, Lara croft is no good either. What did she get picked because everyone wants to ogle her goodies? Cole is alright except for that fact that he's a complete ideal of a black stereotype, so no good on that one. I can't say anything on Starkiller. Prince he's a dick, simple and plain. Elika would have been a much better choice than him. My list would've been, Faith from Mirror's Edge, The character from Fallout 3, Snake from Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3, but oh well it was the best theatrical game out), Mega Man, and Gary Oldman's voiceover in COD:WaW (The game sucked, but he was good).

niko is the most bland character of any game

iimo gta 4 is absolute crap and boring as hell to play. but that aside no i am not making a biast opinion on niko, niko is BLAND he never hardly says anything in the whole game he talks with no emotion and is just a plain character. seriously, the only reason he is up there is because its gta

I haven't played Prince of Persia so can't comment on that, but Cole is an awesome character, even if he is a major stereotype. His section when he "regroups" with delta is also hilarious. I would have put Faith in but probably would have just not put the Prince in due to not having Prince of Persia.

Agreed. Faith from Mirror's Edge and the character from Fallout 3 would have been MUCH better. Atleast the Fallout3 character.

Hell, might as well even throw in that fat guy from Monopoly!

I'd have to go with Cole Train as #1. Which almost pains me to do because I've been raiding tombs with Lara for over a decade. But the fact is every time something comes out of Cole's mouth, I end up laughing my ass off.

"he’s easily the best Prince we’ve ever been faced with and will most certainly provide you with plenty of laugh out loud moments."

I didn't laugh much at all, just wondered WTF Ubisoft was thinking. The Sands of Time Prince was better...mainly because he wasn't so damn Americanized to the point where it was insulting and really took a lot away from the story compared to SoT Prince's wordplay against Farah. The new Prince sucks. Altair was more convincing for the time period than Prince of Starbucks. Warrior Within Prince has been vindicated. Take the new Prince off the list and put on that guy from Battlefield: Bad Company that always talks about Truckasaurus.

I think that's pretty much spot on, though I can't comment on the #3 Gears of Bore character.

I enjoyed the new Prince in PoP, with his dry humour which more than made up for a distinct lack of any Middle Eastern accent (which he should have had)

5. Niko Bellic - If only for his story.
4. Faith (Mirror's Edge) - Great character
3. Starkiller - Great character
2. Sgt. Roebuck (COD: World at War) - Great character and voiceover.
1. The Prince - 'nuff said.

I think that list shows what dull characters have been foisted upon us this year if this is the top 5.

To be fair there have been lots of games where the lead is customisable, which is a much better way to immerse a player into a game.

But my top 5 for the year would probably be...

5: The lead from Saints Row 2 when you chose the Cockney voice.
4: Brucie from GTA 4
3: Your dog in Fable 2
2: Johnny Gat from Saints Row 2
1: Francis from Left 4 Dead

Dunno why everyone is so in love with francis from L4D, he only shouts a line out every now and then and has no real likability.

To anyone who hates gta4, i dont disagree that the game was disappointing, but thats compared to OTHER gta's. For me anyways. I still liked it as a game in its own right, and Niko is a very good character to boot.

I WAS gunna vote for issac from Dead Space, but then realsied that I didnt really connect with him in any way, that game would have been so much better had he talked.

Faith - Although shes a good character, i thought the story lacked any real depth for me to get engaged with her properly.

Overall, a good list ;)

P.S. Whoever did those gfx is a god :O

Nice List, would have to agree, would have probably put Niko first though - one of the most brilliant lead characters i've seen in a game..I dunno about the Prince though, I only picked that game up today, he's always been a witty guy though, 'cept for Warrior Within where he turned into an emo fag.

My list would be as follows:

#5 - Tai (Gears of War 2) ... holds a spot in my heart for being a guy that actually pulls off compassion and desire without having to have a story focused around him (ala Dom).

#4 - Niko (GTA 4) ... still haven't played this game much, but the concept behind someone trying to get a foothold in the crime industry in America is so compelling. This game, even though widely debated on its pros and cons, still sold millions and for that, the story should get a nod at its sheer length!

#3 - Isaac Clark (Dead Space) ... story doesn't develop so much around him as much as I would have liked it to, but I feel that the game seemed to capture the mind of an actual person. Would anyone want to face that barrage of enemies? For a loved one, yes!

#2 - Dog (Fa

ble 2) ... I didn't know how this was going to play into the game as well as it did, but it reminded me of Dungeon Siege and the donkeys you could have. I loved the dog and I hope that the next Fable can do the same ... but allow you to pick your animal!

#1 - Cole (Gears of War 2) ... nobody pulls off a great character like Cole did. Yes, he may be stereotypical and may seem like idiot at times, but he is so BA and that is what matters. Nothing like him rescuing Delta squad in that one scene, but the video above I teared up I was laughing so hard!

I haven't played the new prince or star wars games to comment, but I didn't really like GTAIV nor Nico, I fell asleep a few times during the game, never caught my attention. I'd say replace him with Jansen from Lost Odyssey, never before has a character from an rpg made me laugh so much. His lack of a serious attitude and quips really helped offset the darker tones of Kaim, I was always looking forwards to what Jansen has to say next.

skillet, the only black people that really want to cry about racism are the ones on tv. Any of them with a brain (professors and shit) are not going to set there and give a shit about stuff like that because if you give it a "you a racist" all you are really doing is supporting racism.

Get the fuck over it, why doesn't anyone ever say "Man that is such a stereotypical white guy!" Because no one actually gives a shit unless its against black people.

Im not being racist I just think that acting as though something is offensive because of stereotypicallity is just supporting the racist thoughts we have to deal with to day. It could be black on white or white on black but if you continue to bitch and cry about it then it will never go away. Why not just laugh with the rest of us?

I think Dom from Gears 2 should make top spot. THe whole campaign is based around his tragic story, and well he's just plain awesome.

Cole is the only GOW2 character worth a sh!t Baird is a fag, Dom looks like a f'ing pedo, Tai dies, Marcus looks like a dumb mofo', Carmine dies, and all others are hardly around.

GTA4 is a stupid motherfuk'n game, so stupid the voice is completely fake, sounding like some idiot having spasms as he is talking.

IN MY EYES COLE IS NUMBER ONE. When you play me in GOW2 you will be thinking COLE is a god when I play as him

Prince is a generic dude with a headband and an oversized scarf, Isaac Clark shows as much emotion as a corspe and Niko... screw that - what about Roman? That guy was... a bit annoying actually. But hes a damn site funnier than his lifeless cousin. So, er.. yeh. Not been a great year for great characters IMO. Guess the winner has to be the cole train. Y'know, that dude from TWO YEARS AGO.

Niko should have won. His character is fairly believeable, we can see why he goes off the rails. We can also see he respects other people in the game, we sense his hatred for Bulgarin and Dmitri. His excellent one-liners with Roman are hilarious, and his transitions between russian and english add to the realism. Best GTA character yet.

I like Starkiller in that list, but the rest I dislike.

GTA IV was one of the biggest letdowns ever. The gameplay sucked, driving was horrible, and the controls were stupid.

Gears of War 2 was a good game, but it was also a very bad game. The gameplay was fun, and the story dwell deeper, but it became repetitive with the first one. Online was a mess, and everbody glitches anyway. Sure, I'll admit, I'm horrible at the game, but that doesn't make up for the foulmouth comments I've recieved.

(These are my opinions only, please don't flame me for stating my thoughts.)

how can you guys say you don't think niko should be number one? GTA IV won game of the year all because of the story and gameplay based around niko

and for GoW 2 characters, what about poor lil carmine? he was ballin as shit and you know it, he had a pimp ass mask on it was pretty sweet.

my list:
5 - Roebuck (CoD WaW)
4 - Florian Cravic/Bernie Crane (GTA IV)
3 - Dom (GoW 2)
2 - Cole (GoW 2)
1 - Niko Bellic (GTA IV)

prince of persia is a terrible game the first one was the only good one the whole series has gone to shit and its not even enjoyable to play, so is CoD WaW but some of the characters were deese.

ive never played fallout 3 but im sure id add some of those characters to my list .. id add nhl players from NHL09 but they dont really count as characters hahaha

Whats with the prince? Couldn't stand the change in that game, personally. GTA4 is fine @ The hater, wtf?

I personally think the award' shoulda gone to the Stephen Fry in Fable 2, or Sister Hannah, she was awesome.

I agree with the general consensus here, The Cole Train should have been first. Niko and the prince were just wrong, I'm not saying they didn't deserve a place but not the top two. Lara Croft hasn't really done much to win a place their either. I'm sure a better list is possible.

I think the list is pretty good but, I think #1 should be Niko and I totally agree with Cole. His character makes the Gears games fun. But, what about the character from Assasin's Creed, I think he was pretty bad ass.
