    And Kratos from God of war is pretty badass too.

    That list is not right! Dante from DmC is the most badass character of all time!

    Nathan Drake?

    Ryu Hyabusa

    Well, Batman is still the most badass,even though he isn't originally a video game character. But I'd vote for Adam Jensen, from DE:HR.

    Y U NO PUT Captain Price in there???
  • SOLAMON77 - December 18, 2012 3:16 p.m.

    I know he's still pretty new, but Mr. Torgue of Borderlands 2's Badass Crater of Badassitude is pretty badass. :-D

    Jack Cayman from Madworld was pretty badass, what with the old chainsaws for arms...

    That's Garcia Fucking Hotspur to you, man. Get it right next time.

    Sorry, but Baird shouldn't be on the list. I TOTALLY agree with the argument about him opening the doors, and without Baird they may all be screwed, and however else you want to say it; This wasn't a list of the most helpful or intelligent characters, though. I don't consider the guy that saves the day as always being a badass, I guess. I agree with the placement of the rest, though.

    And the addition of the Community Choice screws the whole article.
  • H2A2I00 - September 30, 2012 4:53 p.m.

    This list is seriously lacking in some captain price

    Also an honourable mention to Thane Krios, he went out like a damn boss

    I suppose it's all personal taste, but i have to admit that i find the list a little unconvincing - even bearing that in mind. You play up Baird's intelligence, and cite the ticker box fiasco as an example of, but fail to mention that he destroyed the ship Marcus and Dom had been living on for however many years. He might be intelligent by gear standards, but surely there are characters that have demonstrated far greater intellect within this generation, while managing to exhibit an ability to shoot things too. Mordin springs to mind, but i suppose he doesn't really fit the picture of the steriotypical badass. Anyway, from this generation i've liked Jason Hudson (Black Ops - voiced by Ed Harris), Zaeed (Mass Effect), Ruby (WET), Sean Devlin (The Saboteur), Johnny Gat (Saints Row), Kane (Kane and Lynch) and Asura (Asura's Wrath).
