 I'm not referring to the storyline, I just want to know what games do you think have the most memorable and awesome characters.
 
For me it has to be
 
Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Metal Gear Solid 1, Final Fantasy X, Mass Effect 1, GTA Vice City and there's probably some more which someone else will list.

Both L4D games. The character development in both games is so natural and great, which is very impressive since they are both multiplayer games.

Dragon Age for me. During my first play through I only really found Alistair, Shale and Morrigan to my liking. However I decided to fill my party out with some other characters during my second and third playthroughs and loved most of them. Especially the dialogue between Sten and Dog, and I also love Oghren
 
Though I find the characters from most Bioware games to be fairly memorable like Darth Revan and HK-47.

The Metal Gear series, I cannot think of a more memorable, varied and completely bonkers collection of characters.

Grand Theft Auto IV (just IV) or Ratchet & Clank. They just have the most memorable protagonists and antagonists, repsectively.

I'm a huge fan of almost any character Rockstar has ever created. At least from GTA 3 and forward. Don't have much experience with their games previous to that.

Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2... I can't think of any other games where the characters were worth a damn.

Metal Gear Solid 1-4. With the exception of Snake Eater, they all have some of the greatest boss characters ever designed. The heroes aren't bad either.

Am I the first to say Uncharted?  The guys from Bad Company are pretty good, too.  Half-life 2 has some good ones as well.

The guys from Bad Comapany were awesome, but the characters from Metal Gear Solid 4 were amazing. It was my first (and so for only,) MGS game.

Even though Portal's script is just an extended monologue, it really fleshes out a character that you can't see and when you do, can't even facially emote. That's good script writing.

Deadly Premonition and the Mass Effect series. 
 
Also, I've grown attached to most of the Resident Evil characters as well after playing each game like 5 times....

Probably the Metal Gear series for me and how each and every single one of them concluded alongside each other.

With Nostaligia Factor: Final Fantasy VI (aka Final Fantasy 3 for SNES)
Recent: Mass Effect or Dragon Age - any recent Bioware game will do  GTA IV and RD:R make the list too.
 
Honorable mention: Roger Wilco from Space Quest - nobody dies with more style. Monkey Island et all Lucasarts Adventures.

@Axxol:

Do you work for Bioware?

back on topic: its the Metal Gear franchise for me, always did love it, Two moments or characters stick out for me which are The boss from MGS3 and the whole sacrifice story arc. And Snake, the moment in MGS4 where he is in the microwave corridor actually made me feel guilty for playing the game and making the character going through the pain of being boiled on the inside.
