Favourite gaming characters


Thought it might be fun to have a thread on what characters you’ve loved playing as over the years, or that featured in a game. Just to be clear, not asking for favourite games, but characters from games that stood out, that you always enjoyed seeing.

Whether it ranges from a particular cartoon character, or something more ‘real life’.

I’ll get the ball rolling and start with, Sonic the Hedgehog. Ticked all the boxes as far as I was concerned when I was younger. Speedy and in the colour blue, my favourite colour. A great combination :cristo:
