Who are the toughest, and greatest, lead video game characters ever? Not all videogame player characters are necessarily heroic, but we take their side anyway, because our fates are intertwined. The best video game characters immerse us in the story, and eventually gain our sympathy, even if they are anti-heroes or villains and the more badass they are, the more inclined we are to take their side no matter what, and the more powerful we come to feel in controlling them.
