Game of the Year Awards 2019: Best Character

Setting out on a journey of unparalleled danger can often be the easy part, but having the right person for the job is always the trick. Often times our plucky heroes are not, in fact, the person best suited for the job but is the only person left able to overcome the impending doom. Whether or not they are prepared for the adventure that lay before them, these characters are ready to set out and do what is right. The nominees for this award are all characters who have been molded, crafted, and lovingly created into flushed out iconic figures who have become synonymous with their respective games. These are the characters we can’t stop talking about and will continue to have in the forefront of our minds for quite some time to come. Here are your nominees for Best Character.
