Gamers are too reactionary. Games are like fine wine, they must linger for us to get their true taste. There are plenty of examples.

It's weird that you say that, considering how untrue it is.

No kidding. That's a pretty good list of characters. There's a good amount of variety in their designs, but I think there have been better characters since they put that list together.

Were there even 5 iconic video game characters created in the 2000s, much less 30?

3d models will age horrible (look at ff7, ffx, kh, heck even games like total war shogun 2 which was only released this gen has started to show its age)

the only characters on the list that isnt a 3d model is tim, phoenix, and layton
