I suggest you look at the top ten, since at least half of those in it are known even to those who have never ventured further into the gaming world than Tetris.

The famous BAFTA, or officially the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, held a vote among 4,000 gamers from around the world to determine the most legendary and popular video game hero of all time. Based on the voting results, a rating of 20 characters was compiled.

10th place - Shadowheart

From the game "Baldur's Gate 3".

The youngest heroine in the rating, since she first appeared in the third part of the game, which was released in 2023.

9th place - Kratos

From the game "God of War".

This tough man has appeared in eight installments of this game franchise.

8th place - Master Chief

From the game "Halo".

The hero's full name is Master Chief Petty Officer John-117. No one ever saw his face.

7th place - Link

From the game "The Legend of Zelda".

The hero appeared in 20 games in the series, but never said a word.

6th place - Pacman

From the game "Pac-Man".

Did you think that this yellow circle with a mouth is not a character?!

5th place - Sackboy

From the game "LittleBigPlanet".

The little rag people are also full-fledged characters!

4th place - Sonic

From the game "Sonic the Hedgehog".

A veteran of the gaming world, Sonic has appeared in more than a hundred games!

3rd place - Agent 47

From the game "Hitman".

He made his debut in a video game in 2000, but looks much older due to the specifics of his work.

2nd place - Mario

From the game "Super Mario".

The assassin and the plumber took the prizes, but who could get ahead of them??

1st place - Lara Croft

From the game "Tomb Raider".

Yes, that's it! Lara Croft has appeared in more than 15 games, as well as three films, several novellas and comic book adaptations, and the upcoming Netflix animated series.
