Inspired by Garrus losing to Chell in the Character Showdown, haha. I'm not sure how anyone can vote for, or really love, characters like Chell, Jack (Bioshock), or even the perennial favorite Gordon Freeman. These characters are basically empty shells that are supposed to be inhabited by the player. They rarely have any interesting character traits of their own, only what you project onto them. This may make your connection to them stronger, I guess (because you are them), but I don't think if necessarily makes them great characters at all. This isn't bitching about voting, I swear, I was just really curious about what you guys thought of the "blank cheque protagonist."
