Default Re: Most memorable charaters from games

The near totality of the characters from BioWare games, and I'm not exaggerating one bit. But, for me, especially Liara in Mass Effect, and basically the whole cast in Dragon Age. There are older games I've played with very memorable characters, of course, such as the cast from MDK2 (again, from BioWare) and KOTOR (heh, yeah again). I could also think of Gabriel Angelos in the original Dawn of War campaign (he's... "alright", in DoW 2 but nothing compares to his performance in the original, and it had a much better script anyway for the voice actor to deliver).

Then there's of course Alyx from Half-Life 2 and the Episodes, or the G-Man, and interestingly enough, as much as I like the H-L series I can't possibly care less about Gordon Freeman since he has absolutely no personality and basically no background story (Valve wanting "us", the players to "be" himself, which for me doesn't work at all). And there's a good bunch from the original Fallout and mostly in Fallout 2, but also some in Fallout 3, or in Morrowind and Oblivion as well. There's so many to think about...

But my favorite characters I can think of are all found in BioWare games.

I hate sounding like an Xbox or Halo fanboy, because I am very much not, but the first one to pop in my head was Cortana from the original Halo.
