“Wait, no Mario, Pac-man or Nathan Drake on the list? Ok, I’m outta here. Stop writing stupid and incomplete articles you moron!” Well, could you please let me explain first? Thank you! This is a PC game specific article, so I am not going to mention any console exclusive game protagonists here. Also, there won’t be any player created protagonists like “The Dragonborn” of Skyrim, “The Courier” from Fallout: New Vegas or ” The Ashen One” from Dark Souls III. All the video game heroes mentioned in this article are measured by their average popularity in the recent years. So, please forgive for all the despicable crime I committed for not including all the classic and great video game heroes.
