Who could forget the entire Fallout series? That one belongs in the HoF for sure.

Holy crap! I did, apparently. Kindly add the Diablo series to that list, as well as Total Annihilation and Starcraft.

okay.. okay.. we are all friends here.. one guy may hate halo, and guy may hate NOLF.. but lets remember that this is a thread about the hall of fame characters.. Who did we spend time away from our spouses saving the world as? its all about nostalgia (except for recent games)

i am gonna cast my vote for Kilik of Soul Calibur and Max of Sanitarium.

And dont foget about Garrett from Thief!

The first and last games you mentioned were already there.

Not sure about TA being HoF material. Honorable mention for sure...meh, what the hey, put it in there.

Character Honorable Mention at least, I believe, should go to Shodan. I thought the best part about System Shock is that she was always there, always seemed like she was watching you. She taunted you every step of the way and gave you a sensation that she was doing things to actually try and stop you. Now, of course it was all scripted, but for 1994, it was pretty darn good. In fact, I'd like to see the Shock games up there. Both brought some great things to the FPS genre and provided engrossing story lines that unfold more like an RPG than an FPS.

I absolutely love Thief as well, but out of a Hall of Fame situation, that would probably be best to receive an honorable mention. While I absolutely love it, I don't see that it has a staying power to last as long as the other inductees.

Come to think of it, I think the Freespace series could at least get into the Honorable Mention catagory. Still the best space sim to date, I've NEVER seen another game (before or after it's release), which had such huge ships and massive space battles. It's practically the Battlefield 1942 of space shooters. Damn I wish they'd make a new version of it with a better server browser and 64+ player battles, but with the supposed Freespace 3 in Derick Smart's hands...ugh.

Maybe even Descent, for it's time that was a pretty amazing game, everyone was so confused when they found out there was an up AND a down!
