Bat's Favorite Video Game Characters!

          Mario, Samus, Master Chief and Kratos. What do these names have in common? All are great video game characters that have survived multiple games and consoles. Earlier on our Facebook and Twitter I asked for everyone's favorite video game characters and I thought I would share mine. I have not included Villains in this list because they will have their own post shortly. These characters are in no particular order and are Bat's characters only. Maybe we can get Hammer to write his own list!

5. Mario (Super Mario Bros.) - How can any list of top video game characters not include Mario. While I have not played a Super Mario Bros. game in some time Mario was my first game and brought me into gaming and for that he will always hold a special place in my heart!

4. Link (Legend of Zelda) - Again another character that I grew up with. I cannot count the number of hours I spent in Hyrule rescuing the Princess but each and every one of them was filled with fun and adventure.

3. Kratos (God of War) - The sad tale of a man forced (perspective) to murder his family and topple the Gods. Kratos gave so much emotion and rage to a character, something that I had never seen in a video game character. And those death scenes!!!!

2. Vivi (Final Fantasy IX) - This is my personal favorite Final Fantasy character of all time (non villain) His story of being a clone and trying to find his place is touching and heartwarming. He shows the best qualities of man, even though he isn't one. Many people still haven't played FFIX, but please do yourself a favor and play this game. You won't be disappointed.

1. Nathan Drake (Uncharted) - Remember when Indiana Jones was fun? That's exactly what Uncharted is. Nathan Drake is the perfect character to lead this franchise with his wisecracks and flare for the dramatic. With the close of the PS3 I cannot wait to see what Nathan has in store for PS4.

There's my list of top video game characters. Who would you add or delete from this list? Leave a comment and let me know
