Gamespot had contest running to find out, who is The Hero of all the video games. Their editors picked 64 heroes from various games for different gaming platforms to find out, who is the best hero of them all (One hero to rule them all, one hero to find them, one hero to bring them all and in the darkness bind them). Players all around the world had chance to vote for their favorite hero for 3 months.
I believed that Lara Croft vs Gordon Freeman will be facing eachother in final round, but Lara got buttkicked long time ago by Super Mario, who defeated all other opponents too and faced Gordon Freeman at the final round.
And here is the winner: Gordon Freeman of Half-Life series!
What is All Time Greatest Game Hero?
The All Time Greatest Game Hero is an opportunity for our users, our editorial staff, game publishers, and every part of the gaming community to come together and settle the question: Who is the single greatest hero ever to star in a video game? No, this isn’t a quick poll that you vote in once and walk away from. This one’s for all the marbles. The winning hero will receive a special honor that eventually come to live on GameSpot, permanently, and the winning voters who correctly pick the winning brackets and the greatest heroes will win all the glory in the form of bragging rights and fabulous prizes, while the losers suffer the agony of defeat.
