    Mario being up there against Gordon Freeman proves JUST how childish gamers are, and how they refuse to let go of their mainstream platform hero.

    Games deserve to be taken more seriously, enough of this nintendo oligarchy!! and while Gordon wouldn't have been my number 1 choice, anything is better than Mario, Cloud, Link or any other humourless cartooy characters who rely on 'cuteness' and the nostalgia of the players who never bothered to explore the vast world of games beyond their console's most dominating franchises

    we got the godfather syndrome here, its like when people say the godfather is the greatest movie ever dont get me wrong it was certainly breakthrough in cinema but since than other movies were made and some of them are better so what? it doesnt make the godfather less good than it is, it only means that times are changing and opinions change with them the same goes in here mario was the greatest hero and i think its amazing that its been so long since we first saw him and he still got to second place but still this website is mostly used by a younger generation and for them the greatest hero is gordon and in about 5 years from now it will probably will be someone else.

    I think LInk was top. If not him, then Snake, if not him then Freeman.

    But then again, out of all the top characters, the only two that did a unique epic journey (not kill baddies, defeat dungeon, kill boss) was Snake and Freeman, who's storylines is extremely original and grips you to the end.

    Master Chief is a loser and finally it has been proven!

    Link sooooooo should've won. Heck, i'd even vote Mario- but Gordon Freeman? No way.

    Solid Snake deserved it hands down...too bad not a huge quantity of MGS fans out there(unlike half life) to really see what the epitome of a video game hero is..

    We're still keeping this section alive are we?

    Well I'd like to take moment to remember Pikachu and Bub & Bob. Without them, this contest wouldn't have been as nearly as electrifying as it was. Always Remember.
