Video Game Characters Who Belong In a Hall of Fame

If they were ever to have a Hall of Fame Video game characters these are the characters who deserve to be in it.

The Top TenXW

1Mario (Mario Series)Mario is a fictional character in the Mario video game franchise, created by Nintendo's Japanese video game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto. He serves as the eponymous protagonist of the series and is the mascot of Nintendo. The Mario franchise is the best-selling video game franchise of all time.

If anyone deserves to be in the Video Game Hall of fame it should be Mario he single handily pulled the entire video game industry off life support following the video game crash of 1983. - egnomac

Mario made video games popular. Mario saved the video game industry. Not even the legend of Zelda could do that.

Mario will always be my favorite video game character. Without him the video game industry would be dead. - nintendofan126

Why do people hate Mario, without Mario video games wouldn't EXIST

2Link (The Legend of Zelda Series)Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Why is Link always 2nd to Mario? Link is a much better hero. Mario IS A SOCIOPATH, proven by GAME THEORY. Look it up.

He's saved Hyrule Time after time and defeated the evil Ganon and all without ever saying a word. - egnomac

Come on, Link is the symbol of one of the most timeless videogame series ever

3Pac-Man (Pac-Man)V2 Comments
4Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot)Crash Bandicoot is a video game franchise of platform video games. The series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment.

Crash Bandicoot is like a hero from the original PlayStation days

5Sonic (Sonic Series)

You may have low points, old friend (looking at you Secret of the Rings and Genesis port to GBA), but you will always be one of my favorites.

6Samus Aran (Metroid Series)Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

Samus was like the first Female Action hero back when video games were a male dominated world Samus completely changed all that. - egnomac

7Master Chief (Halo)MCPON John-117, or "Master Chief", is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Halo fictional universe created by Bungie.

Quite mad that Master Chief isn't higher up. He saved the human race 4 times and what does he get? Being placed at number 8...

Revolutionized first-person shooters - without Halo, there Call of Duty would just have guns. Plus he's a boss

He saved the human race from total destruction from the Covenant! And why is Cheif only at 9? All Mario did was save some princess who shouldn't be saved at all.

8Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

One word and this goes for you too Samus: HOTHOTHOTHOTHOTHOTHOT - izakronalddonnelly

9Luigi (Mario Series)

11Kirby (Kirby Series)Kirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.V1 Comment
12Shadow the Hedgehog (Sonic Series)

Amazing and still epic even though the (there's good Shadow fans and bad Shadow fans) bad fans have been ruining him ever since his debut in SA2. He's just 2 swag. Still going strong after a while of being paired with stupid oc's.

13Clementine (The Walking Dead)
14Solid Snake (Metal Gear Series)
15Chun-Li (Street Fighter Series)

The First Lady of fighting games she paved the way for other female fighters to follow she proved woman can be tough and sexy.

16Liu Kang (Mortal Kombat Series)
17Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)
18Bowser (Mario Series)Bowser or King Koopa is a video game character and the primary antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise.

He's the number one villain in all of video game history he should be in the video game hall of fame.

19Duke Nukem (Duke Nukem Series)
20Sean Devlin (The Saboteur)

An Irish mechanic who liberated Occupied France pretty much by himself.
