Link at number 3? I thought this was a favorite video game CHARACTERS list.

Richard Pale By your logic as long as they have cool weapons/power ups/gameplay we should put games that barely have a story in the favourite gaming story list and awful looking games in the favourite gaming art list.

Magus Magus The problem is that you're looking at "characters" way too narrowly here. The stuff you can do with characters in games is pretty obviously relevant to how much people will like said characters. As the introductory paragraph states: "As gamers, we love to assume the role of unlikely heroes or empowered entities to achieve the impossible or JUST HAVE FUN!" Therefore, characterization is indeed optional. I could ask why you're so myopically focused on the story aspects of characters being their only valid measure when we have another list for favorite gaming stories. I see you have a favorite fighting games character list. Are you really arguing that those characters' actual fighting mechanics should have no consideration whatsoever when making such a list and that anyone who says otherwise is wrong?

Dr Eggnog Part of why I like Leon S. Kennedy in Resident Evil 4 is because of his gameplay abilities such as jumping through windows and off ledges without getting hurt, kicking enemies and slamming open doors to stun enemies and such. That said, those tie into his personality as a purposely over-idealized American action hero. His scene personality and gameplay actions mesh well together.
