I'm not sure who mine is, but I was looking at Uncharted 3 images on Google, and I saw Nathan Drake, and while I don't know if I'd say he's my favorite new character, it is what made me want to create this. I think my favorite character is arguably Isaac Clarke. Most people would probably disagree since in the first he has little to no personality, and in the second, some may think that as well, but I think he does have enough, and he has more potential to become even more. So yeah, he's probably my favorite. There are so many though. This doesn't mean who's your favorite protagonist, it can be any character.
So just to be clear this has to be a new franchise right? Not a new game for an old franchise?
Right. For example, you can't pick Kratos or Solid Snake or whoever else comes to mind.
That doesn't seem right. Like if I were to pick Drebin for some reason that wouldn't be ok? And by that logic John Marston is out because of Red Dead Revolver.
Anyways my actual answer... darn I guess people from Persona 4 and Mother 3 don't count. I really have a soft spot for John Marston and Niko Bellic. GLados and Wheatley are great. And of course Mordin, he has a very humorous side and also he is responsible for the most interesting conflict in the Mass Effect games.
I like Garrus fine, but why is he such a favorite?
She's got it all together. She's exceptionally smart, she doesn't have major problems like the other female love interests (daddy issues, cultural dilemmas, emotional baggage, etc.), she can live for about 1000 years, she's basically got super powers, and she's really fucking gorgeous (I moved the camera on one of the missions so I can see her face up close and that FACE). I feel like a game where you play as her doing some Shadow Broker commando shit would be cool.
