Pretty straight foward say who you like and why
Mine is Nathan Drake. Funny, run of the mill, but gets the job done. I really felt as if he just kept getting thrown into some crazy situations and took it all in stride. Also i've never seen so many cliches done so well
It doesn't have to be a new character but they must have appeared in this gen already eg. Master Chief.
And he must be judged on his performance in this gen not any of his previous iterations.
My 2nd choice is probably old snake in MGS4 i felt kinda sorry for him throughout the game
