I agree that Master Chef is far too simple a character to be at the centre of the Halo games.
And Gordon Freeman is exactly as Zero Punctuation describes him. An emotionally oblivious mute.
Play MGS2 than diss Sold Snake not before that

Through the eyes of the newbie Raiden, Solid looks uber cool.

One good game, ok very good game, that worked great as a platform and didn't really transfer all that well to 3D environments. Just my two cents and to be honest its being offered without playing most of the Sonic games .
After Alex kidd Sega created sonic to replace him as their mascot. As for the other sonic games, true 3d enviros didn't work too great, but then again the orginal creator stopped working for sega and had some one else work on him for the dreamcast. most of sega games were runied, by none other than sega of america (SOA from now on) sonic cd was a great title to launch the sega cd but failed to gather any momentum or build on the sega franchise because of SOA reluctant to translate it properly and cutting costs constantly on their machines, case in point the UK's earlier sonic games were 25% slower than the rest of the world because we couldn't run 60hz framerates on our tvs. And this game was supposed to emphasise on speed.

Re: Overrated Game characters

Heh after seeing his Ninja fight against vamp in the trailer for MGS4 even i longtime Raiden hater was impressed by his moves, thats the Raiden i wanna play as

Cant believe he is the same noob that only years ago coudlnt do much in MGS2.
