I really do not feel like reposting my previous Top 5s for alot of reasons. 1: Waste of time since most members have seen them. 2: I don't feel like pissing off the staff members for possible SPAM. 3: I like watching Big Bang Theory, OKAY?! Anyway, this Top 5 revolves around the most hardcore, badass game characters from any game. It doesn't matter if there a chick/guy/android alien monster thing as they fit the definition of BA. You can comment on my choices or post your own. Let's Begin. 5.- Marcus Fenix-Gears of War 1 & 2 Microsoft wanted a guy with an attidude that said "blow sh*t up first, ask questions later". Well, they got what they wanted. He didn't have much backstory till GOW2, but it's okay since 3's trailer at E3, (Although Microsoft's confrence sucked flying monkeys) looked amazing. 4.- Cloud (not counting FF VII: Crisis Core/Advent Children)-Final Fantasy VII Yes, i'm a Final Fantasy nerd. Yes, I realize they made him emo in Advent Children. But I don't care. Becuase I grew up with the Cloud on the PS1. He had to carry around a sword the size of himself.(no innuendo intended) 3.- Professor Layton- Professor Layton trilogy You don't have to be a Guy who never smiles or have a over-the-top weapon to be badass. Your intellegence and cunning is all you need to be badass. The Professor has proved this time and time again, with solutions that would make Sherlock Holmes shed a tear. Also, making a FREAKIN GUN OUT OF A SLOT MACHINE is pure awesomeness. 2.- Samus- Metriod series If Lara Croft and Master Chief had a secret love child, Samus would the result. She hunts alien viruses for a living, plus is a bounty hunter for space criminals. If you think that's not badass, get your prioities straight. 1.- Link- Legend of Zelda series If anybody can get way with wearing green tights in public, it's Link. He has killed Ganon and saved his princess more times than I can count. His games have gotten perfect scores from nearly every gaming magazine possible. You know why? Becuase he can stab Ganon through the forehead, thus turning him to stone. That alone should put him on this list, but the rest of the resons make him number 1.
