50 Most Iconic Video Game Characters of the 21st Century

From a blocky hero beloved by millions to the most memorable monsters and heroes modern games have to offer

Geralt of Rivia
Geralt from 'The Witcher'6/50

6. Geralt of Rivia

The White Wolf is an old school tough guy with the scars and swords to prove it. He just wants to earn cash slaying monsters but there's always a complication, be it his adopted daughter Ciri or his girl gang of love interests. True, he's not so much about the banter as the weary grumbling but he's always ready to bargain with a doomed troll or give a succubus a chance. This old grump is just a big softie underneath and after spending 200 hours with him - pretty standard for any Witcher fan - he'll feel like an old friend.

Iconic Moment: The Battle of Kaer Morhen, fighting alongside the allies you made during the main quest and Ciri. That or the mission with the cheese mage.
