you know this thread reminds me of an ultimate character battle thread where the best and most popular characters from each console and genre were pitted against each other and people voted for their favourite. If i'm not wrong dante came first, and snake from metal gear solid came second (can't remember the rest). We should so do a character battle here. Like we do most popular fps characters from all mediums of gaming, then most popular rpg from all mediums (etc). Then using the top 2-4 characters from each genre we do an ultimate battle to find the true most popular character of all.
