Your pics: If silent video game characters could talk

Some game characters never speak. Whether it's a hardware limitation or a deliberate attempt to get you to connect more with your on-screen alter-ego, someone's hit the mute button on their entire lives. But what if they could talk? What would they say?

UPDATE: After getting the ball rolling with our own efforts (see page 2), we opened it up to you guys on Facebook and the GamesRadar forum. Some of you shopped together your own, while we've made the others up ourselves from your comments. Give yourselves a pat on the back - some of these are great!

Well done everyone. Hit page 2 to see our original ideas if you missed them first time round. If you missed out this time and feel like having a go, you can still show your creative side in the forum.

    Also, I feel sorry for the people who were considered a brother by xboxrulez. Nobody should have to sink that low, regardless of console of choice.

    Jetpack? God? Guys dont forget this: Priest is invincible. Priest+Excalibur=Mass Ownage. Or you can just use Blob.

    @DrLovez69 You kinda suck. And yes, I like the fact that GR is adding user created content to the main site. It makes us feel speshul.

    Umm... Samus DOES actually talk in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Zero Suit) and Metroid: Other M.

    Soz xboxrulez, I simply refuse to believe you're serious, unless you have severe dyslexia. I mean you type so Bad (no offense intended) on PURPOSE. It just irritates me IMMENSELY. No, I have a PS3, Im not a "Fanboy" or whatever you guys call it, I have other hobbies, a life :P but I do love me some "experiment" games. (Heavy GAWD) But I digress...... peeeeeace x

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY the zombies fainlly get their 2 cents worth @Xboxrulez- as much as i love the 360, i think you really need to learn to A) type, and B) not hate discriminately. as much as i prefer the 360, the PS3 does still have some good exclusives

  • nomnom52 - February 23, 2010 10:40 p.m.

    What? no Pokemon? come on! all the main character says is "yes" or "no"!
  • Felixthecat - February 23, 2010 2:12 p.m.

    I love GRUK articles, they always either have really bad or average Photoshops, which adds to the humour. Also, Xboxrulez is a saint, leave him alone.
  • AuthorityFigure - February 23, 2010 2:06 p.m.

    I'm not sure about this article... Besides, Kirby both SUX and BLOWS. recaptcha: Under grandpa
