    Okay so first, No Max Payne is a travesty. Second, love how you guys put John Marston Fifth, when if you quickly read your review.... Way to know your own content.

    Max Payne first showed up on the PS2 and original Xbox. This list is about characters that debuted during the last console generation, i.e, PS3 and Xbox 360 (and Wii).

    That review was written by a different staff with different opinions.
  • KNITEpanda - March 18, 2014 7:14 p.m.

    How is Master Chief or even Cortana on here? Even Tiny Tina being rated soooo low was absolutely pathetic. Fail list is fail.
  • Rakarth - April 10, 2014 4:21 a.m.

    I agree, Tiny Tina to this day remains one of my most favorite characters, because honestly.... When do you see crazy teenagers make bombs, blow things up, and go crazy?
  • mike-hughey - April 26, 2014 4:14 p.m.

    Fail reader who doesn't understand the premise of the article is fail -- Master Chief and Cortana debuted on the original Xbox. This list is about characters who first appeared during the console generation after that -- the 360/PS3/Wii one.
  • BaraChat - August 5, 2014 11:57 a.m.

    This list is for characters "born" in the seventh-generation, which isn't the case for either. It says so on the first slide...
  • Zking75 - March 12, 2014 6:59 p.m.

    How in the name of Talos did Max Payne not get on here? He is the best written character of the generation, yet you put friggin' meat boy in your list?
  • usmovers_02 - June 22, 2014 11:32 a.m.

    Dude... read the name of the article again...
  • ajay-vs - March 11, 2014 8:54 p.m.

    Well it made me happy to see ezio, Joel and drake in the list. But games radar again forgets Dante . the guys in games radar you ever played DMC...!!! DMC doesn't make your list at all. And you forget Lara croft , Agent 47... These characters are game sellers Mann. Where is kratos.... U don't even have super Mario in your list.
  • usmovers_02 - June 22, 2014 11:34 a.m.

    All characters that DIDN'T DEBUT LAST GEN!!
  • hintzke - March 11, 2014 5:19 p.m.

    Again Gamesradar continues its long running troll of placing something Portal related at #1, despite the franchise being among the modern day definitions of mediocre and really only shining for its witty t-shirt worthy slogans.
  • ajay-vs - March 11, 2014 8:56 p.m.

    Agree you always See portal being their #1 game . poor list by games radar again
  • usmovers_02 - June 22, 2014 11:33 a.m.

    What's wrong with thinking Glados is the best character? Lots of people agree. Besides no list like this will ever work for everybody.
  • bschaefer19 - March 11, 2014 4:28 p.m.

    No Dohvakiin???
  • usmovers_02 - June 22, 2014 11:33 a.m.

    Dohvakiin isn't a character...
  • SlowOctopus - March 11, 2014 1:38 p.m.

    I'm really happy to see Rucks from Bastion on this list! I just replayed that game recently and I just wanted to lay back and listen to him talk. I'm also happy to see that John Marston is high up there. He's still one of my favorites too.
  • bebl09 - October 15, 2013 9:26 p.m.

    Did you remove that article about video games aping Hollywood too much because it said Nathan Drake isn't an amazing character, which contradicts you putting him at #2 on your 'best characters' list?
  • FabianoGM - October 14, 2013 4:20 p.m.

    Mordin Solus? Seriously? Where is Commander Sheppard and Miranda Lawson?
  • usmovers_02 - June 22, 2014 11:34 a.m.

    Or half the rest of the crew.
  • hunter-payne - October 14, 2013 3:18 p.m.

    I don't understand how almost every list has some Portal game/character at number 1. I mean the series is not that good by any stretch of the imagination.
