I don't think this really adds any value.  In fact, highlighting characters in lists like this might make it a self-licking ice cream cone where the top people keep showing up because they're on the list.  Even if that's not the case, I remember when the site had the top 10 lists for people, places, characters, etc.  The lists tended to be relatively static, and the people were always the chicks with the big boobs and/or Jade Raymond.  I suspect that the tastes of the GB community haven't changed much since that time.

Uncharted's 2 Chloe will be always on my top characters of every month...well i mean Chloe's Ass

Posted by funkmasterflare

This could be dropped. I have no interest in what characters people are looking at, and I'm sure Jeff can find more awesome things to show us.  
I wouldn't mind hearing about this stuff on the podcast, though. The bare stats just aren't interesting enough, but commentary from the Bomb Cast for this and other trends would probably be fun to listen to.

I think it's interesting that supporting characters show up more than main characters, keep it coming Jeff.

I'm with the yes crowd. The database is one of the coolest parts about Giant Bomb in my opinion, and the more exposure it gets the more people might feel compelled to browse around and add to its awesomeness when they otherwise wouldn't. It's worth pimping from time to time if something interesting is stumbled upon.
But damn, bring back the front page trivia already! That is some shit I really miss.

I think it's necessary to say that I hadn't looked at the new Bombcast art.  That goofy TurboToaster and her awesomeness!!!  I think someone should make sure the NeoGAF thread knows that TurboToaster did that stuff.  =  /

I always enjoy it when you share interesting data culled from the site, but I don't think it needs to be done on a regular schedule.

I don't know... seems kind of creepy. I mean... Bayonetta's been out for awhile. I think we all know why she's still number two. I don't wanna be reminded of what some kids are doing, every month.

Back when I still visited Gamespot, I did like their "Most Popular" section, with the tabs for Coming Soon and Highest Rated. Something similar might be good. I don't have any interest in what characters are popular.

No Mordin? What the hell!
Most of the characters in ME2 blow away other games' characters. Bioware has gotten this down to a science. I truly feel sorry for other developers trying to compete in this area.

I like Boobs... and asses

Posted by clubsandwich

hot stuff.

Posted by MikeFightNight

Keep it up Jeff. Tali should be #1 though.

Edited by Dtat

Great stuff Jeff! I always love these kinds of traffic stats.
One of my favorite things about Giant Bomb is stat tracking. I didn't really care about achievements until I was able to see what rank I had in each game!

Posted by TheHT

yeah dude, share this stuff! fun little bits of info.

Posted by TimesHero

You should share this stuff in a monthly video.  How about a Wiki Submission of the month, as well as a Wiki Submitter of  the month awards, given out to the users who wracked up the most wiki points in a month.  Call it "A Giant Month in review. brb, write all my ideas down now... I'll get back to you.

Posted by jos1ah

Sounds good to me. I find that stuff interesting if I know where it can be found..
Posted by MisterMollusk

I liked it when around Giant Bomb first launched and you had all of the most visited pages right before you. I remember hamburgers being up there for quite a while.

I agree
Posted by Dan_CiTi

Bayonetta and Miranda have NICE booties. 

Posted by ELpork

No love for Mordin?

Posted by Eyepatch

Sweet, Taokaka made the list!
 I'm certainly all for seeing more such lists out of idle curiosity for random tidbits of information.

Posted by Serker

lol Taokaka. I should go play more Blazblue, I forget all about how to play as Tao

Posted by Rayfield

Hey Jeff the more I think about it, the more I think it ain't such a hot idea. For two reasons: 
1. Page views seem to be mostly about ass. 
2. You've probably got enough on your plate.

Yes, bring back those Top Ten Lists to the frontpage.
Posted by geirr

Do it Jeff, do!

Posted by goodwood

Im guessing that Jeff is MonsterDunk on NeoGAF.

Posted by chililili

Yeah I want some lists back! Also this might make more people edit pages, which would be great!

Posted by MrMiyagi

Yeah, I visited Miranda's page a few times...

Posted by RandomInternetUser

Sure, sounds good to me.

Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious

More Charlie Tunoku

Posted by Bandit

I am always interested in knowing stuff like this, its a nice reminder that I'm normal when i've visited the same pages that are on the top 10, so yes Jeff, more of this please!
Edited by Brackynews

@Jeff: I really enjoyed the "(New) pages that need help" or somesuch.  Was usually interesting and good for some wiki points.
I'm not a forum guy, but if the Forum tab gets a Popular list, then yes I'd like to see some kind of popular pages list.  I don't think I care if each category has its own list, but if it's the Top 100, say, then a filter should be simple.

Posted by FelixLighter

Yeah I miss the most popular wiki section of the homepage.  It was the one problem I had with the first redesign.  It would be nice to see it come back in some form.  Oddly enough I remember bringing it up way back then on neogaf.

Yeah, but Miranda's model is based on a real person. I'll leave it up to someone else to do the ass comparison.
Posted by Hector

Miranda! Miranda! Miranda!

Posted by Hamz

Yeah I'd like this to be a regular article on the site. I'd still love to see that old table detailing the most popular pages within the database make a return as well. Even if it means not having a front page slot, seeing it somewhere else on the site would be great :)

Posted by Teirdome

Go go Gadget SQL!

Posted by DJJoeJoe

Open up the stats to the users! A full on stats page with sections for top views on concepts, achievements, characters and all that jazz. As fancy as you can get with graphs is also something to aim for.

well if they ever make a Mass Effect movie that casting decision should be easy.... wait its Hollywood never mind =p
Posted by dillinger

its definitely an interesting read.  i recommend you keep it up!

Posted by Arjuna

I didn't realize I wasn't the only one interested in Miranda.  That hair is SO freakin' hot!  Brilliant character design.

Posted by Claude

Go deeper and find some obscure shit. You'll like it, and we'll read about it.

Posted by Zainyboy

Do it! If only to share with us what keeps you going when you are at your loneliest!

Posted by UnsolvedParadox

I really like the lists, bring 'em back!

Posted by Krystal_Sackful

 I HATE Miranda.
"In theory any biotic could do it" my ass!

Edited by SmokePants

Yay, Tali... I should visit that page.
She is the most well-executed love interest in any Bioware game (or game for that matter). It's kind of a bummer to know that being a love interest and having no guarantee of surviving the events of ME2 (not a spoiler, everyone can die), disqualifies her as a party member in ME3. I just hope they come up with something better than they had for Liara and Ashley/Kaiden. Wrex was okay, but I hope we get more Tali than that.

Posted by monster9999

YAH more lists would be awesome. Back to the classic GB

Posted by ajamafalous

Sure, Jeff. I'm up for any type of analysis like this.

Posted by Hailinel

Oh, and although this is only tangentially related, what are your feelings on the addition of a "Page of the Day" link on the front page to selected wiki pages?
