Drake, Kratos, Niko actors dress up for Entertainment Weekly

The June 4/11 issue of Entertainment Weekly,which subscribers received last week, features a massive cover story on the 100 best characters of the last 20 years, a list that - almost surprisingly - contains a few game characters, including Master Chief and Lara Croft. As far as we're concerned, though, the crown jewel of the rather massive list is entry 93 (on page 91), titled Game Boys, which gives the single spot to Uncharted's Nathan Drake, God of War's Kratos and Grand Theft Auto IV's Niko Bellic.

As a gamer, you might think it's blasphemous to shunt three prominent, beloved characters into one remote-seeming entry. But you won't care once you see the page, which features an amazing photo of the characters' voice actors - Nolan North, T.C. Carson and Michael Hollick - dressed as microphone-wielding versions of their respective roles in front of a green screen.


Above: Yeah, our version's kinda low-res. Want a better one? Pick up a copy of the magazine

The full page also features short bios on each actor, along with a little commentary on how they view their characters. We wouldn't normally shill for another publishers' magazine, but the issue's worth picking up just for this page alone - and the rest of the list isn't a bad read, either, regardless of whether you actually agree with any of it.

    Well, it's not that bad, but I can't help shake feeling that a part of me has just died a little on the inside.

    @ Maasai & mgkyo666 100% co-sign. I refuse to let my anger address a dipshit. Anyone with 'bear' in their username is the last person to talk about ANYTHING being gay.

    Lol I love how they have voice actors presented in an image and with such funny costumes. Fail

    @mgkyo666 Agreed. I also restrain my rising anger

    I'm going to restrain myself from going on a rant against anyone with cholo in their username because I know very well they be trollin', that is all.

    I loved his game, but Kratos does look like he has some sugar in the tank.

    kratos is gay along with his stupid game

    Is it just me, or does Nolan North look identical to Norm MacDonald?

    For some reason, whatshisface who voices Kratos looks asian in that shot.

    That picture is fantastic and awful at the same time. It's good to see that Entertainment Weekly recognized video games characters.

    Lol great picture. The icing on the cake would've been getting David Hayter dressed as Snake, but still good to see them as there characters.
