We know how heroes are; they are noble, trustworthy, fierce, honourable and caring. Here we make a list of our top 5 heroes in the history of video games. This may not match with the list of others but most gaming fans around the word would agree that these 5 are certainly amongst the best hero games ever.
List of Top 5 Superheroes in Video Games World
1. “Alex Noa” from “Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete”:
Alex is one of the most popular silent protagonists of all time. He can be considered as the man with no words. Alex idolizes Dyne and wishes to turn into the next combating Dragonmaster. A lot of things go in the game and despite being a young lad, Alex manages to become the last ever Dragonmaster and just like any other hero, he also gets the girl of his dreams at the very end. Yes, the game has a fairy tale ending and Alex is probably the quintessential heroic character in the world of video games.
2. “Link” from “The Legend of Zelda”:
Link is yet another sword wielding hero who is an absolute favourite. He is again a silent protagonist but the difference lies in the fact that his destiny never ends and he is always on an on-going journey. Despite the kind of difficult game he is part of, Link always manages to exhibit extraordinary willpower and courage, considering the kind of monsters he fights who are normally around 30 feet taller than him. It is not only the monsters that he is busy with; there are few annoying fairies who always scream loud in his ears with words “Hey! Listen!” Equipped with his weapon, the Master Sword, Link certainly becomes the reckoning force.
