Re: Who is your favorite video game protagonist?
Hm... as in playable character? It's actually hard to pick one that stands out a lot. Guys like Mario are huge names a very fun but... there's not too much there. Guess I'd have to say Commander Shepard. Or maybe Niko Bellic.
To the LA Noire talk... I actually just refinished playing that for the second time since it came out. Much more fun the second time but the game is very, very flawed. I really like the Cole Phelps character but he wasn't much of a protagonist: he wasn't very likeable. In any GTA game he's more like the guy who stabs you in the back to get ahead halfway through the game.
