Sadly i've only gotten to play NOLF two months ago, so it wasn't very hard-hitting, however i can see how that game would've blown my mind hardcore 10 years ago.. And so i agree

No One Beats Cate Archer

Yes, have to go with Cate Archer, I've realised that all the PC games that I liked when I was a teenager were very unique to that period, and I miss them alot. :'(

Gotta go with the Spy from TF2. He has the clever one-liner thing down, he can literally transform his appearance instantly into that of any target, he can drop fake corpses, he can turn invisible and he can destroy any piece of machinery.

#28 Posted by isawachuck (166 posts) -

Spy from TF2..definitely!

#29 Posted by beckley205 (341 posts) -

#30 Posted by buzz_killington (3655 posts) -

(I don't actually think so, but just to be different and obscure) Sam from Secret Agent, which is some old shareware Apogee game.

#31 Posted by MisterMouse (3599 posts) -

After borwsing the concept page, I'm going to go with B.J. Blazkowicz. I love the Wolfenstein franchise, and I know that Solid Snake should be the most popular choice (and, honestly, my choice, too) so I'll give B.J. some cred.

@RollingZeppelin: @uniform: You two are officially the smartest people in this thread. Cate Archer is the shit.

I love her. I used to have a favorite character list with her as number one, plus a decent writeup of her and comparisons to Emma Peel (Avengers).
