My all time favorite is Tex Murphy, so suave, so gallant and not bad looking either lol And Gabriel Knight was great too. Then there's the blacksmith from BD. I found myself needing a lot of weapons repaired wink

BD as in Black Dahlia?

I think the blacksmith in Aura is not bad looking either. Too bad he doesn't have many intelligent lines.

Does anyone remember the old Dos game by SCI called "Kingdom of Magic"? There's a dim witted Conan the barbarian type character who has only a pair of skimpy underwear and boots for his costume and spends a large part of the game on a toilet bowl.

Dear Mad,

Too bad for KOM. It had so many great ideas but on the whole it just didn't work out. I must say I still miss it, nonetheless.

The Gribbler from The Longest Journey; demented and hilarious.
The coachman from Still Life was an intriguing, seedy character.

They're the ones that immediately spring to mind.

C'mon folks, you can't leave out dear little ARTHUR, from the Journeyman Project 3- Legacy of Time. Also in J-Man 2, Buried in Time.

I also have to fan my brow whenever Atrus speaks.

How about our dirty little guy from Leisure Suit Larry hearts

Oh and Malcom from Kyrandia. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Malcom have a son. I think I remember someone holding a little baby that looked like Malcom.

I noticed Rincewind, does anyone still have that little pewter statue of Rincewind that came with Discworld? I still have mine.

Definitely Gabe, Tex and Jim Pearson (Black Dahlia) and on the female side April, Kate, Zoe, Grace (Gabriel Knight games) and for pure laughs the Suffragette!!!(WE SHALL OVERCOME, WE SHALL OVERCOME). Now take a guess where she comes from?? Anoying beyond words but hilarious!!

Happy gaming to all,
Barry

I have to agree with Darleen- My favorite character is Nancy Drew. My second favorite is Delaware St. John. Can't wait for the new ones to come out!

Correction...its the Suffrajester from Discworld 2. Rincewind actually picked her up when she is tied to the stake and carried her around in Inventory by feeding her to his Inventory chest-with-legs.

Regarding Malcolm from Kyrandia 3... I remember that adventure games of that time had several villain characters with the same name. "Malcolm" was apparently the favourite name for villains then. They even engaged the actor Malcolm McDowell, famous for his villain roles, to play the villain in a popular space sim.
