Welcome to The Game Huntress’s Lair my fellow Geeks and Geekettes!
Before we get this blog rolling I would first like to thank the guys over at SodaPopTalk for the inspiration. Look for the link at the end of this blog if you are interested in checking out their website and listen to their podcast! The inspiration came from their latest episode, where they were talking about their favorite television characters who they would put into a Hall of Fame. Since most know I am a huge Video Game freak I thought why should I not write about which character’s I would put into my hall of fame!
Here is a my top 12 video game character hall of famers listed in no particular order, some may not be the main character or a playable character in a game:
Hall of Famers
- Commander Shepard from The Mass Effect Series
- The Hero of Ferelden from Dragon Age Origins
- Hawk from Dragon Age 2
- Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series
- Master Chief from Halo
- John Marston from Red Dead Redemption
- Alex Mason from Call of Duty: Black Ops
- Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect
- Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
- Carth Onasis from Knights of the Old Republic
- Bastila Shan from Knights of the Old Republic
You might be asking yourself “Why did I pick the characters that I did” well here is a little insight behind a few of my choices.
You cannot beat a badass iconic Figure such as Mario. He has stood strong since the beginning of time and will always be a memorable character!
From the Blitz to the War with the Reapers, he has proven that he is a true hero not merely just a Alliance solider.
Best friend and comrade to Commander Shepard! He is overall just one badass Turian, Can’t beat that! Who could take a rocket to the face and keep on kicking!
She is one badass tomb raiding chick with guns and other weapons at her disposal! 11 more days until I have the new Tomb Raider game in my hands! Love her revamped look to an iconic figure, also great to know how she got to be the great iconic figure that she is from the beginning! Girl Power!
My first ever crush on a video game character (: No Shame! Whenever I have played the Mass Effect series and I hear Kaidan Alenko’s voice I instantaneously think about Carth. Knights of the Old Republic was one of the first games that I ever beat by myself!
First character that I learned was voiced by the lovely Jennifer Hale. She is one of my all time favorites voice actors! You can hear her voice in games like Halo 4 & Mass Effect series as the Female Shepard.
I would love to hear feedback from my readers to see who some of you would pick to put into your Hall of Fame. You can leave it here or you can tweet me on Twitter. Username GeekyGamerChick.

They are seasoned veterans and even though I barely got addicted towards the end of last year, I am a huge fan of these guys, and will be probably up until they stop recording which would be a very sad day when that happens.
