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. :'(

Black spy from Spy vs Spy.

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.

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.

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).
