    Website GameSpot now holds The All Time Greatest Video Games Hero competition.

    Of course, Link is also competing. So, let's help him!

    Now, Link is having battle with Gordon Freeman. You can vote here - http://www.gamespot.com/greatest-video-gam...ml?battle_id=62.

    Oh, and also, think about your next vote - 'cause if Link will win Gordon, he will have a battle with Mario in finals.

    Meh. Both characters games got boring and repetitive (Have you SEEN half life 2, its like the same puzzle over and over)
    BUT, I prefer Mr Freeman's storyline to TLoZ's broken story scattered around games that weren't released in a logical order.

    The only good thing about this poll was seeing Sonic and Master Chief be cheated out of the contest by Bub and Bob.

    Sup guys let's pair videogame characters who have had a recent title come out against videogame characters who haven't had a new game in the last ten years. IT'S TOTALLY FAIR AND LOGICAL. Bwuuuut? All the old school videogame characters are getting voted out?

    I just can't beliiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeve that Bonk isn't in the finals. He's, like, an ICON.

    Seriously. I'd forgotten this poll existed. I was happy.

    I voted Link. I'm not a huge fan of the Zelda series, but Twilight Princess was awesome and I didn't really like Half-Life 2.
    The main character of Half-Life 2.

    I know, but was he really that great of a character to be almost on par with Link?

    Travis Touchdown is by far the greatest (anti-)hero of all time. Sure, he's not off hunting wizards or saving the world, but he's the best character ever made.

    Also, there's a lot of Links since they fucked up the Zelda time line.

    How the fuck could Gordon Freeman beat Snake? Gordon's a pussy. Snake is just kick ass.

    HEADS UP!

    There are already several semi-old news articles about how many people rig the poll results through proxies by 4chan.org. Don't bother voting, people are wasting their time. >.>

    /HEADS UP

    Seriously. WHY would you even bother to rig the poll? Leave it alone for crying out loud..

    There's also an IGN article on it.

    Who is this Duke Nukem? And how did he even make it so far? I've never heard of him.
