It's a tough choice for me. I really want to vote Mega Man but Gordon Freeman wins by a hair. I grew up playing Mega Man.

Hmm, so many. To be honest I wanna say Link, Samus, Snake, Mega Man, etc., but they can't all be the greatest.

For now.. I think I'm gonna go with Crono. I'll probably change my mind in a minute or two.
