I Recently bought the latest issue of GamesMaster magazine, because it was their 200th issue, they had a free book that listed the top 100 greatest gaming characters of all time, quite a few of them where Capcom:
100. Samanosuke Akechi (Onimusha 3)
82. MegaMan (Mega Man X)
84. Barry Burton (Resident Evil)
57. Jill Valentine (Resident Evil 3)
56. Merchant (Resident Evil 4)
54. Chris Redfield (Resident Evil)
52. Chun Li (Street Fighter 2)
45. Pheonix Wright (Pheonix Wright Ace Attorney)
43. Claire Redfield (Resident Evil Code Veronica)
42. Albert Wesker (Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles)
41. Ryu (Street Fighter 2)
14. Leon (Resident Evil 4)
12. Dante (Devil May Cry 3)
The full list features in the magazine, but that would take too long to type and wouldnt really be fair on them.
The list was apparently created by votes of the readers, I disagree with some of the entries.
And the Dante go'eth in to the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
