  1. Lots and lots of great characters this year. I agree with a lot of what’s on here. Unnamed standouts for me would have to be Jodie, and I’ll even count Aiden, from Beyond: Two Souls. Love that game and the realization of those characters.

  2. Well, I was prepared to shout you down to the hell you came from for choosing Joel over Ellie. But then I thought about the amount of times I “talked” to the TV screen as if I was talking to Ellie herself. That is the real genius of this game. The arc of your emotional attachment is both informed by the writing of the character and the concurrent nature of your association with her. So, yeah, you are correct.

    Kudos for the Lutece Twins. Adored them. The Irrational Games version of Tintin’s Thomson and Thompson.

    • Ellie is a great character, but there’s a lot more nuance to Joel in my opinion. And therefore she gets a nice mention, but in the interest of variety she misses the boat.

  3. Outside Trever, that was more of a “meh” list of characters… But then again, I’m more of a fan of characters like Big Boss (Metal Gear Solid).

  4. Trevor sucks, I was SOOOOO glad when I killed him at the end.

  5. Trevor was good at the beginning as he was so different but towards the later stages he bugged me. Having said that I loved his relationship with the married woman. That actually made me lol.

    • I forgot to add I liked Michael, he was my fave character. Franklin also annoyed me. I would’ve killed him if there had been a choice.

  6. Really cuz many have said that trevor is the only true gta character that makes any sense and embodies the series.
