I thought this might be a fun thread. I limited myself to top 5 choices but added some alternates.

My top 5 heroes:
1. Gabriel Knight (GK)
2. Tex Murphy (TM)
3. Guybrush Threepwood (MI)
4. Kate Walker (Syberia)
5. Manny Calavera (GF)
alt - April Ryan (TLJ), Graham (KQ), George Stobbart (BS), Roger Wilco (SQ), Sonny Bonds (PQ)

My top 5 villains:
1. Baron von Glower (GK2)
2. Gehn (Riven)
3. Jacob McAllen (TLJ)
4. AM (I Have No Mouth…)
5. Malcolm Metcalf (Blackstone Chronicles)
alt - LeChuck (MI), GLaDOS (Portal), the Alchemists (Zork: Nemesis), Saavedro (Myst 3), Adrian Ripburger (Full Throttle)

And for kicks, top 5 other characters:
1. Arthur (JP2 and JP3)
2. Burns Flipper (TLJ)
3. Oscar (Syberia)
4. Murray (CoMI)
5. Anna Wolff (TLE)

edit - I wanted to add Grace (GK) and Nico (BS) somehow, but didn’t want to make pairs for heroes. At the same time they are much bigger than secondary or other character classification.

I also had a bit of trouble coming up with villains. You can look at it from multiple angles. For me it was just about how memorable they were, how strong their motives were, and also how heinous they were. In the case of von Glower, he was so likable.

I actually find Ms. Oldbag a bit annoying, to be honest. Maya and Miles Edgeworth on the other hand…

Wendy Oldbag has me in stitches every time. I think the character’s hilarious!

And the only reason Miles Edgeworth isn’t on my list of favourite heroes is because I was restricted to 5 and I didn’t want to put two from the same series in… Tongue
