Forums - Gaming Discussion - Most Badass Men/Boys in Gaming?

Gonna give my vote to Magus from Chrono Trigger.  Why him, you ask?

If the world is to be destroyed, so be it.

If my destiny is to die...I must simply laugh"

Kratos. (ends thread)

This is the correct comment.

Kratos is not just the most badass man in gaming, he is the most badass character in gaming period.  No man, woman, child nor beast is more badass than the God of War himself.



Sony want to make money by selling art, Nintendo want to make money by selling fun, Microsoft want to make money.

King Dedede is a penguin no? not really a "man". Its a animal character.

Though it could be argued its male, and thus kinda fitting into thread.


That said this entire thread by OP is like a personal attack on me, to make fun of a comment I made in another thread.
I feel like it should be locked or edited, and OP should get a temp ban for it.

KLAMarine should also get a warning for pileing on.

Since when was VGCharts a place where you where allowed to make threads to make fun of others in?

Surely it's just lighthearted banter, my man. No need to tell a teacher here.

Edit: And no, it's not an attack on you. It's a comment on female representation.

Thought of this since today is no longer International Women's Day.

Men, for those who don't know, can kick as much ass as any women. Boys can be powerful AND sexy too, I say! But who among them kicks the most ass?

Let me say that I think Joel from The Last of Us is the best candidate because he's just a badass who happens to be a man, instead of the other way around like all of tha overpowered Gary Stus in mankini armor out there who r like "Look at me, I'm a man and I can do anything, so fuck you womanz!"

Also, I'll give mention to some of the men who had a major impact on video games. Here are my favorite male game developers:

-looks good in a plunging neckline at 50!

...Yes, this is a cynical, sarcastic, somewhat mocking thread that was inspired by another recent one. In honor of International Women's Day, Captain Explosion posted a thread called "Most Badass Women/Girls in Gaming", wherein we listed the cooliest female characters (and occasionally developers) in gaming according to each individual. I just thought I'd take a moment to highlight why society feels obliged to occasionally do these things, to occasionally take a moment in time to acknowledge the achievements of women (real or fictional) and such, by doing a little role reversal. When one reverses the roles, the absurdity of the situation becomes readily apparent. We don't need a special day or special lists to remember that men can do whateverz they set their minds to or that there are many outstanding men involved in games development or that there are male characters in fiction who are coolsies and capable and inspiring and all. But we have to consciously remind ourselves from time to time that women contribute to the world (or even to fictional worlds) too, lest we most likely forget.

In other words, there's a certain sadness to International Women's Day...which is that it has to exist in the first place. It's existence reflects the sheer lack of confidence that women have in ourselves overall. Maybe if society acknowledged the contributions of women to this world as worthwhile in the everyday, like it does those of men, we wouldn't need to have a special day. That is all.

These days the actions of self proclaimed feminists can irritate me because of the selfcentered context.

You however speak through your heart about what you think without letting hatred get involved and that is such a rarity in modern feminism on media and forums but it is something to respect.



John Marston & Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption.
And Marcus Fenix, of course.

"because he's just a badass who happens to be a man, instead of the other way around"

>I'm struggling to understand the difference.

For clarity's sake, there is no difference. With that particular quotation, I was poking fun at JRPGfan's nonsensical response in the "Most Badass Women/Girls in Gaming" because he couldn't bring himself to contribute thereto in good faith or allow International Women's Day to pass without a contrived swipe at the feminist movement, or at whatever it is he thinks it stands for anyway.

I role-reversed his comments, along with those of some other contributors (and the original premise of the thread) that I felt struck an especially hammy or flawed chord at times to highlight the fact that nobody talks this way about boys or men, or male fiction characters either.

My goal in starting this thread was to make the point that, in a more egalitarian world, these types of special days and commemorations because wouldn't be necessary in the first place because we as a society and world would appreciate and acknowledge the contributions of women thereto as much and as often as those of men. But we're not there yet. That was really all. ...Well that and to have a little fun in the process at other people's expense.
