Tommy Vercetti? Tony Montana? That monkey from Samba Di Amigo?
Those are all guesses, I'm not sure if they are hispanic or not, but I think there is a good chance they are.

I don't usually ask my characters what country they are from.  I usually just use them to shoot digital bad guys.  I'm thinking Saint's Row would have some, um, yeah Scarface, a game called Fully Loaded I think?  Kinda like GTA meets Desperado.

Oh yeah, maybe Master Chief?  I'm detecting a slight accent there?...maybe?  Ok, not the last one...unless you're playing it in a Latino country.

I think the guy from the first Condemned might have been hispanic, but he had a race-change for Condemned 2

The guy in Just Cause? Never played the game but I read an article a long time ago. :S

Oh, Rico from Killzone! He is awesome. http://www.killzone.com/kz/news.psml?kz_news_article=14889419-219a-4308-ae85-4e3b8d92605a&kz_news_page=0

Looks hispanic to me! Well can you tell me a game that has a black protagonist? Other than San Andreas? Or maybe an Arab protagonist (LOL yeah right)? Even Asian protagonists are rare in games, other then RPGs and whatnot.

To be honest, I hardly consider that a legitimate protagonist. He's an embarrassing character, as is the rest of the Gears late night in jail cells crew. I'm white, and I hold my head down in shame for mayonnaise haired Baird.

Ashley from Mass Effect was right? I dunno, I just skimmed through my shelf and I can't think of a real protagonist.  Guess that's kinda weird

He isn't the main character, but Roberto was one of the main supporting characters in Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams.

He was apparently half Japanese, but still spoke fluent Spanish and had a Spanish name.

Ha ha, I remember a King of the Hill episode where Peggy says "I can't teach substitute teach an Italian class, even though Spanish and Italian are practically the same thing".
