    I can barely remember any of the names, but I think I nailed the games. Fracture Lost Planet 3 Dead Space (2?) - Isaac Clarke Prototype - Alex Mason? Red Faction Guerrilla - Alec Mason (I remember they had similar names...) CoD? (Confession - never played a CoD game...) Army of Two - Rico and Dudebro Remember Me - Female Dead to Rights - Jack? Just Cause 2 - Rico Suave or some shit Matt Hazard - the titular Matthew Hazard PS You "forgot" Hayden(?) from Dark Sector.

    I could only name the dude from Just Cause 2 because I played that game a lot more than any other on that list. Two others (RE6 guy and RF:A dude) I knew the games but forgot the names.

    #2 is Lost Planet 3, don't ask me what his name is. #4 I want to say is the dude from inFamous... Cole? That his generic white dude name? Phelps? #5 Alec Fucking Mason, from Red Fucking Faction: Guerilla. #7 I'm guessing Army of Two? Salem and Rios, then? #8 Remember Me, but wow, am I totally not remembering this chick's name. Wait, I think it's Nilin. #9 Wow that dude is painfully generic. #10 Just Cause 2. Rico Rodriguez. What a shitty Hispanic name. It reminds me of the time they were going to have the third protagonist for GTA IV: Ballad of Gay Tony have some kind of original or unique sounding Latino name, something like Luis Munoz Marin, but then it seems at the last second they defaulted to Luis Lopez. Seriously? Lopez? There's a zillion Lopezes. And what's up with the alliteration? Still, better than naming him something like Horatio Gonzalez or some shit like that. Actually, now that I think of it, that name could prove quite refreshing. In a hilarious tongue-in-cheek sort of way. Because really, who the fuck would take someone named Horatio Gonzalez seriously? /end long-winded tangent Bonus: Matt Hazard. Eponymously named guy from his game Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard. And also quite possibly the guy with the most original name on this list. Which is funny and sad at the same time.

    #4 is all i knowz, but hes the only game I think I played of these characters.
  • Fro4show - September 3, 2013 2:31 p.m.

    7/11 here. I think I missed 2, 4, 6, and 9 because I haven't played them. I haven't played Remember Me or Matt Hazard, but I've had a few standout encounters with them.

    Surely this should have been called "A Quiz by any other name"

    Getting the parade kart in Double Dash was ridiculous. You have to win the all cup tour in mirror mode which you unlock by beating every other cup in mirror mode which you unlock by beating the all cup tour which you unlock by beating all the regular cups. I literally took me YEARS to get that far.
  • pl4y4h - September 3, 2013 8:34 a.m.

    Makes sense why i got a 0, never played any of these games before. Ah well
  • FoxdenRacing - September 3, 2013 8:15 a.m.

    Love seeing Matt Hazard get some love. If you can stand B-level production values [it's a low-budget game, but it's by no means bad], it's a beautiful satire of gaming tropes.
  • BipolarTroll - September 3, 2013 8:06 a.m.

    3 is Isaac - 4 is Jake - 8 is Nilin .... and the rest are just too generic.
  • D0CCON - September 3, 2013 7:25 a.m.

    I got 1, 3, 5, 10, and the bonus. I knew that Homefront and Army of Two were shown, but didn't know any of the characters in either game (never played 'em). I remembered Fracture because some old Gameinformers had a running gag of how stupid a name Jet Brody was.
  • GR_AndyHartup - September 3, 2013 10:09 a.m.

    Yeah, Jet Brody is a personal favourite name in the GR UK office too.
  • GOD - September 2, 2013 11:06 p.m.

    I remembered six of the games anyways.... some of them by complete chance. Like recently seeing a random stream with Matt Hazard, and Lost Planet 3 just coming out and me remembering his face. I don't find Nilin to be generic though. Fracture: good idea, generic and sad execution.
  • awesomesauce - September 2, 2013 9:08 p.m.

    3/11 I got Red Faction, Remember Me (Irony), & Just Cause
  • asspills - September 2, 2013 5:14 p.m.

    9 out of 11!!!! First try, speed run. I've never been so proud, Only missed Salem and Rios (they look different in the second game) and the dude from Homefront.
  • Clovin64 - September 2, 2013 4:47 p.m.

    I was a bit more succesful in naming the game rather than the character... anyway I got 4 right. Umm, yay?
  • Meleedragon27 - September 2, 2013 4:46 p.m.

    Only got Jake right, it seems. I also should've went with my first guess for Matt Hazard, but for some reason I kept thinking he had a different hairstyle.
  • Lemming - September 2, 2013 3:35 p.m.

    3 out of 11 (got Issac, Nilin and Matt Hazard), though to be fair, I don't consider Nilin to really be generic, it's not everyday you see a mixed raced woman as the player's protagonist (which is actually the 1st major reason for me getting Remember Me), just not as others have said, inspiring.
  • shinkeiDEI - September 2, 2013 3:13 p.m.

    I got 5 out of 10, not bad huh? I got Matt Hazard without a second thought.
  • JarkayColt - September 2, 2013 1:20 p.m.

    The only character on this list that I recognised was the first one, and even then I couldn't remember his name or the actual game he was from (although thanks to the list at the end I do now, haha). Although I might have done better had I actually played any of these, pfft. But hey, doesn't scoring zero kind of prove the point? XD
