    UH HELLO!!!!! Where's Master Chief and the Arbitor, that had to be the most Badass dynamic Duo in all of video games, also what about Captain Price or Soap Mactavish
  • Solid Tegs - September 29, 2012 7:36 a.m.

    I certainly believe alex mercer prototype 2 deserves a place in there
  • Unoriginal - September 28, 2012 6:54 p.m.

    Asura? Hell yes! Glad someone played that other than me.
  • FOZ - September 28, 2012 1:34 p.m.

    I meant that Asura's stoic, straightforward demeanor makes him closest to the archetypical badass, not that it takes them "to new heights." How dare you, Hollander Cooper.

    Still no Nathan Drake?
  • BladedFalcon - September 28, 2012 2:22 p.m.

    Nope, again, he's really not that baddass. Specially not Attitude and story-wise.
  • db1331 - September 28, 2012 11:54 a.m.

    Geralt (The Witcher) would beat the shit out of anyone on this list. Then he would have gratuitous sex with a large-breasted woman.
  • slimjim441 - September 28, 2012 6:55 p.m.

    I almost forgot about Geralt. I think it's too late for recognition though.
  • winner2 - September 28, 2012 10:26 p.m.

    You're probably right. He really is a badass though, especially considering the hell-hole of betrayal,murder, and other bad shit that is The Witcher's universe.
  • SunnyvaleTrash - September 28, 2012 6:15 a.m.

    Grayson Hunt (Bulletstorm) definitely deserves a mention. Getting extra point for getting drunk, shooting an explosive onto a bad guy, and then kicking him into a man-eating plant is definitely bad-ass.
  • GR_LucasSullivan - September 28, 2012 11:56 a.m.

    Plus, the voice of Spike Spiegel! Good God, how I want that game to get a sequel.
  • furiouslunchbox - September 27, 2012 5:58 p.m.

    Garcia fucking Hotspur needs to be on this list. He kicks demons in the balls and defeated lucifer to get his girlfriend back. Cant get much more badass than that.
  • JA - September 27, 2012 4:23 p.m.

    Why is Cole here and not Alex Mercer, He can kick Cole's ass any day. Anyway My top 3 are John Marston, Max Payne and Commander Shepard
  • BladedFalcon - September 28, 2012 11:20 a.m.

    Because Mercer's a douchebag and lacks any real personality other than moping and growling. That, and as strong or monstrous mercer could become, he'd get zapped and electrocuted to death before he could even come close to Cole, then his fried carcass would be swept away clean with a fucking tornado.
  • Macnessa - September 27, 2012 2:08 p.m.

    Minecraft Steve should be on the list. This is a man that has nothing but the clothes on his back. The only remaining human life forms are undead trying to kill him, the rest are strange mutants with dark powers that try to disassemble his empire, block by block. The rotation of the earth is accelerated to such a degree that if he doesn't find the resources he needs in a short amount of time, he's zombie bait. And no matter what he builds, how high he makes his walls, what armor he wears, weapon he wields or how many times he's killed the Ender Dragon. He will always pale at the sound of the hiss creeping up behind him. This survival horror game requires masterful wit, unrelenting courage, and bowels of steel. Despite it all, he bears his horrifying loneliness with a smile on his face and a spring in his step. Get digging my friends.

    Kratos? Adam Jensen?
