Rob’s Top 5 Most American Video Game Characters


Happy birthday, America. Amidst all the fireworks and hot dog eating contests, Geek Outpost pays tribute to the most American video game characters of all time. These are based on opinion and personal gaming experiences, alone.


5. The Boss (Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater)


Born in the 20’s, Joy AKA The Boss is considered to be the Mother of the American Special Forces. This lethal vixen planned raids on German air bases during the North African Campaign. During World War II, she led the Cobra unit to victory during the Battle of Normandy. Everything, The Boss has done, was for her country. She’s also kind of hot in some weird, cougar way. You would think, at some point in the game, there would’ve been a nip slip with that suit.

4. Jackson “Jax” Briggs (The Mortal Kombat Series)


Major Jackson Briggs is the leader of the U.S. Special Forces Unit. The only thing bigger than Jax’s metal arms is his love for America. I mean, come on, look at this victory screen and tell me that’s not as American as it gets. Jax first appears in Mortal Kombat II with a mission to save his partner, Sonya Blade, who was capture by Kano.

3. Connor (Assassin’s Creed 3)


Connor AKA Rootin Tootin Raspberry, or whatever the f%$* his actual name is, is an assassin during the American Revolutionary War. I, for one, have never really been interested in the Assassin’s Creed series, but I would rank protecting George Washington pretty high up on the patriotism ladder.

2. Duke Nukem (The Duke Nukem Series)


Enough said.

1. Guile (The Street Fighter Series)


Mr. America, himself. Guile is sworn to avenge the death of his Air Force buddy, Charlie, at the hands of M. Bison. Guile’s signature move is the Sonic Boom, a hook-punch, released energy boomerang that delivers a taste of America to the faces of evil. Guile has TWO freaking American flag tattoos and he’s dressed like a G.I. Joe protagonist. Next to Captain America, who was excluded because he’s a Marvel character first, Guile is a surging, flat-topped taste of America.
