Head on over to GameSpot.com to partake in a contest that asks fans to vote on the greatest video game hero of all time. What does this have to do with Star Wars? Well, none other than the Secret Apprentice (aka Starkiller) from the hit game The Force Unleashed has made the list of the top 24 contestants.
See the announcement below:
"With All Time Greatest Game Hero, GameSpot will immortalize the greatest video game hero in history, and your votes will be the ultimate deciding factor. Soon, a great battle will begin, where an army of the greatest video game heroes of all time (we've chosen 54 to include already) will enter...and only one will leave. Once the war begins in earnest, you'll be able to choose a full bracket of game heroes to try to predict the outcome of the competition, and every week, it is your votes that will determine which heroes will advance to take their place in the annals of history, and which will be left behind.
But this is only the first step of the journey. This is where you, the readers of GameSpot, must choose the first 10 characters to appear in the competition from the following list. GameSpot's editors have chosen 24 video game heroes of all different shapes, sizes, and eras, and it's time for you to choose their fate. Visit the poll and choose the one entrant you feel most deserves to enter the arena. The top 10 winners from all the votes received will enter the fray for their chance to be immortalized as the greatest video game hero of all time once the larger voting begins.
