Which video game characters do you think are the most memorable, the most iconic? Who do you think is the toughest, the coolest? Who'd you share a few beers with? The gaming industry has produced quite a number of memorable characters over the years. Notwithstanding the ocassional cheesy line and bad voice acting, many of these characters have -- for better or for worse -- become almost symbolic of today's pop culture as Mickey Mouse and the James Dean persona of previous generations. It can be argued, in fact, that a good handful have already achieved the status of cultural icons. Who among them would you say is your favorite?
