I am not much of a gamer, but I thought this article from Yahoo! was interesting. And I am familiar with most of the characters included in the list.If I had to choose my favorite video game characters (among the list), it would have to be Mario, Lara Croft, Sonic and Cloud Strife (not in the top ten, but mentioned anyway). Maybe they should also include the whole population of the Sims. Just a thought, hehehe.
