  • A List Gaming Modz Could Predict

    Gaming Modz

    Gaming Modz showcase those characters and titles that the gaming community really seem to latch on to. Guinness just asked over 13,000 gamers to vote for their favorite video game characters at their Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition website. The top 50 list compiled seems fairly accurate if you take a lesson from the gaming modz you see within gaming communities.

    In the top 5 of this list you'll find characters that have been used for hundreds of gaming modz as well as some very cool community driven gaming modz based off these personalities.


    #1 Mario – Mario will just about always be number one, for a lot of people the original Mario was their first game of this medium that people experienced. Since the release of Youtube, it seems as though people have been modding the game to make it nightmarishly difficult.

    #2 Link - People can't get enough of Link and Hyrule. Check out this gaming mod of a zombie infested version of Hyrule.

    #3 Master Chief – Master Chief doesn't say much, but that doesn't mean we don't love playing as him. 3D or 2D. See him in 8 Bit-Halo. http://www.evilcontrollers.com/blog/8-bit-halo/

    #4 Solid Snake - Solid Snake and the Metal Gear revival that took place on the PSX made us fall in love with this unique genre of espionage, but we also really dug Solid Snake.We wanted to start playing Solid Snake is all of our games. See this gaming mod of Solid Snake in Resident Evil 4.

    #5 Cloud – Cloud and the gang paved way for westerners to appreciate the Japanese roleplaying game genre and we've never forgotten him. While he has made a ridiculous number of cameos in Kingdom Hearts alone, it doesn't mean the fans have gotten tired of this soldier quite yet. He ends up in the most ridiculous spots.
