Nintendo has Mario, Microsoft has Master Chief, ect.

Who does PC have? Doom guy? World of warcraft? lol

im genuinely curious


Hmm that's a tough one. Most pc games don't have a flagship character because the pc was able to handle a greater load. Therefore most pc games are create your own main character. Also, those ones you mentioned, Mario and Master chief, they are exclusive to those platforms. Pc rarely has that. If you want a flagship character that is pc exclusive then you're pretty much stuck with WoW, which is yet another create your own MC.

If you're ok branching out into pc games that have moved onto other platforms then we have a much greater selection to choose from. When I think pc gaming, I first think of The Sims (but again it's create a MC) and Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider has Lara Croft.

So if you want a strictly pc one I vote Clippy cause screw it, Cllippy is awesome and there is no PC exclusive (younger generation may have a cute virtual puppy but he isn't as spiffy as Clippy was). If you don't mind a pc game that is now on other platform then i vote Lara Croft and if you want a little free interpretation of what makes a character, then I vote the green floating thing over Sims Heads.
