MY Top 5 Kick Ass Video Game Characters

5.Anyone who knows me, knows that Jack aka Subject Zero (aka the Convict) is my favourite character, from Mass Effect 2. She’s not only an incredibly powerful biotic, she’s also extremely complicated. She’s a deft hand with a shotgun, but her biotic powers are her main form of attack. Plus, she’s also pretty sexy 😉

4. Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad of Assassin’s Creed. Altair is master assassin, who ends up on a path of redemption, due to his own failure. He’s stealthy, agile, lethal, and looks fantastic in his eagle-esq attire. He’s an expert pickpocket, very proficient in combat (weapon, and hand to hand), and a master of the hidden blade assassination.

3. Ghost aka Simon Riley is introduced in CoD: Modern Warfare 2. He not only looks like a total bad ass, he acts like one. Torture? Not a problem. Witty remarks? Check. Controversy? Got that too, the whole ‘Ghost is Gaz’ arguement. He’s in this list, mainly for his most famous quote – “Let’s do this!”

2. Violette Summer of Velvet Assassin. Velvet Assassin really wasn’t received very well, which was quite unfortunate, as it’s story was quite deliciously disturbing at times – showing the brutality, and horror of WWII. Violette is my definition of “game babe”. She’s a sexy spy, with a killer streak in her. She’s stealthy, an expert with various weapons, and ruthless with a blade. The character (and game) are based on actual WWII spy, Violette Szabo.

1. Frank West of Dead Rising. Frank is one kick ass guy! He’s a photojournalist, but more than that – one hell of a zombie slayer! Chainsaws, bats, katanas, Lego heads…wait, what? Oh yeah, this guy will use anything, he can get his hands on, to dole out damage! He’s also one snazzy dresser 😉

I’ve read many various “top # something or other” lists, so I decided to do one of my own. Just without all the usual suspects – Marcus Fenix, Cloud, Master Chief, Solid Snake, Soap McTavish, Kratos, Sephiroth, Mario, etc. They’re all awesome characters, but they’re also the obvious choices.

  1. Good shout on Ghost, although I feel I know him best for the “we just got our arses kicked!” line from Spec Ops – so many deaths…

    That said, you did mention Gaz and he trumps with his welcome tribute to Airplane in ‘MHC’: “I am serious – and don’t call me Shirley.”

  2. Great list, I’m also a big Jack fan and Ghost is one awesome character. There’s not many faceless characters that can leave such an impact! Good call!
