The 50 Most Iconic Video Game Characters of All Time
Who do you think of first when you think about video games? That's the question we asked ourselves at Howchoo when making this list, which was a team effort. Everyone here weighed in with their favorite famous video game characters. And thus, this list was born.
Our list contains famous video game characters from the long past to the present. Given that more and more game companies seek to use their iconic characters as representations of their brand, you can find many of these figures on shirts, cards, and even as Easter eggs within other games. And while Nintendo certainly claims the most famous video game characters, you'll find representatives from most major video game publishers of the last thirty years.
Like all lists, this list of iconic video game characters is subjective, and we're certain that we've missed a few fan favorites. We hope you'll enjoy this list of the most iconic video game characters!
