I've been wondering if there were any characters we could identify as leaders in most video games. In this case, what I defines as a leader is one who does one or more of the following:
- helps others out in times of need
- is able to command others to create a better future
- is someone you would want to aspire to be
Some examples I thought of were Commander Shepherd, Lee Everett, Sly Cooper, (maybe) Marcus Fenix. I can't think of any others as of right now, but I would like to know what everyone else can think up.
If you are going to post, however, I'd like to know why the characters you suggest are leaders. A one sentence summary will do. For example: Lee Everett shows himself as a leader whenever he takes care of Clementine. Anyway, I look forward to hearing from everyone about who they think is a leader and why.
N.B. The benchmarks for being a leader I presented above are not the only ones I'm looking for. If you can give an good argument (which can be done in a single sentence indeed) for your character, that would be much more beneficial compared to simply dropping a name down.
