The second round of voting on the male character of the generation has begun! There are thirty-two contestants in this round, and in the end, it will be whittled down to six. The top three in each thread will move on to the semi-finals. As before, ties for third will be allowed to move on, unless there is just a ridiculous number of them. You're also only allowed one vote, so make it count!

The poll will close on Sunday, December 1st at 9:00PM Pacific, so take all weekend to decide if you need it!

I voted for Wei Shen due to him being an underdog compared to the ME characters. Wei Shen is a boss, the open world main character done right.

Geralt>Garrus>Wei Shen. Though I guess I'm happy with any of those 3 winning this poll.

Geralt, basically no contest. Wei is a real bro though, would vote for him otherwise.

Garrus is the most boring character in Mass Effect.

It was a toss up between Mordin and Garrus for me, but I went with Garrus because while Mordin is very cool, he fits best as a support character. Garrus is a more rounded individual who, if given the chance, could carry his own game as the lead. I liked having Mordin on my ship, I preferred having Garrus in my party.

Happy to see Joel, Mordin and Garrus are holding their own here, all are great. In the context of the games and not the books, I don't think Geralt is a particularly memorable or interesting protagonist at all. He seems like a combination of a generic gruff-voiced badass and bland cut-out for the player to embody. Also, anybody who went with an american accent apart from Dandelion just didn't sound right to me.

Garrus took a missile to the face and only started kicking more ass afterwards.

I had to give it to Lee, although it was heartbreaking to let my boy Garrus go. Why did you do this Hailinel, why?!?!?! :'(

It had to be this way! Although, I don't think you have too much need to be heartbroken over Garrus in this round, from the way things are shaking out so far.

Oh, I dunno. Legion's story was great. So him, I guess.

Mordin Solus is the sympathetic alien Dr. Mengele of video games.

Mordin, absolutely. The ending to his arc helped, somewhat, redeem a lot of the problems I had with Mass Effect 3. I also continue to be baffled by the love people have for Wei Shen... Maybe I should play through the game again.

Oh, and good on Cole for even somehow managing to make it this far ;P

Very tough choice between Lee Everett and Geralt. Ended up going with Lee though because he was the character I was able to connect with the most, since he does what he believes is right and does whatever he can to protect the ones that he love (Unless if you play him as a stoic asshole I suppose), not to mention he's also a black lead in a video game that is pulled off perfectly without dipping into any stereotypes.
