Who are the toughest and greatest video game characters ever? Not all videogame player characters are necessarily heroic, but we take their side anyway, because our fates are intertwined. But who cares about the weenies? This list tackles only the true badass heroes and protagonists.

The best video game characters immerse us in the story, and eventually gain our sympathy, even if they are anti-heroes (or villains!) And the more badass they are, the more inclined we are to take their side no matter what, and the more powerful we come to feel in controlling them. Even if our princess is constantly hidden in another castle, for some reason...

This is crowdranked list of video game characters, so your votes and lists decide the final order. Which of these popular video game characters do you think is the most badass?

<![CDATA[The 100+ Best Video Games of All Time, Ranked by Fans]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-games-of-all-time
These are the greatest games of all time, as voted on and reranked by gamers like yourself. Video games are more popular than ever. Since the early '80 when gaming systems like Atari, Nintendo and Sega first took arcade favorite and made them available to a wider audience, video games have become a part of the pop culture lexicon. Many of the best video games are action and adventure games, usually with an ultimate goal to reach in the end. That could mean rescuing a princess, like in games like the Super Mario franchise and Legend of Zelda, or it could mean battling it out with iconic villains like in Goldeneye. Sometime whooping some butt is fun and if that's your favorite type of video game, then you would be partial to the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Contra and Mortal Kombat as the best video games.

The 00's produced some of the best video games of all time. Halo, Assassin's Creed and The Sims have remained popular ten year after their respective releases. People love playing these games and they've taken their place as classics within the gaming community.

<![CDATA[The Best Board Games of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-board-games-of-all-time
These are the best board games ever made, ranked by game aficionados and casual players alike. We also have a list of all board games ever, if you're looking for a more comprehensive look. What are the greatest board games ever? The classic games that have entertained families of players for decades? Or innovative new table-top role playing games pushing the boundaries between fiction and reality? This list attempts to determine, once and for all, which are the greatest and most fun board games of all time.

A board game here is defined as any game in which pieces are placed on or moved around a flat surface, such as a board. This would include classic centuries-old board games such as Go, Chess, and Checkers, along with more modern games like Settlers of Catan, or even some role-playing games involving game pieces or miniatures. What are the best board games ever? What's the best board game for two people? What's the best board game for groups?

Some games still utilize game pieces but are built more around live interaction or conversation rather than traditional "turn-based" board games. These games – such as Scattergories or Taboo – may not meet the strict definition of a board game, but nonetheless resemble board game-style play and entertainment enough to warrant inclusion.

This list was determined by allowing users to make lists of suggestions for the greatest board games ever, and then holding an open vote on which games were actually the best of all time. Whether you are a hardcore board game geek or just a casual player, your votes count here. If you don't see your favorite board games on the list, add your own list and suggest them. And don't forget to vote on the best board games on the list already to ensure they rise to the top!

<![CDATA[The Best Game Systems of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-game-systems-of-all-time
There have been numerous video game systems throughout the years, but which one is the best? Starting in the 70's the daddy of all home video game consoles, the Atari, was released. It introduced the world to games that were able to be played on your home television. With the rise of the arcade, people were jumping at the chance to take the video games home with them, and thus the popularity of the video game home system was born.

There have been many different companies that have tried to release video game systems throughout the years. Companies like Atari, Sega, Nintendo, Coleco, Microsoft, and many more. Each of these companies have released a number of different consoles as the years and technology have progressed. Nintendo has had the NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube and Wii. (This is not even including the portable systems like Gameboy, DS and 3DS.) Sony has their Playstation 1, 2 and PS3, along with their Vita and PSP. Sega had the Mastersystem, Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast. Microsoft had the Xbox and Xbox 360.

After the mid-90's the playing field drastically changed and most other companies fell away since they couldn't keep up with the advancing technology. The big 3, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft came out the clear winners. This is a list of the best video game console systems of all time so feel free to vote for your favorite and add any that aren't here.

<![CDATA[The Best Video Game System Controllers Ever]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-video-game-system-controllers-ever
In addition to providing hours of non-stop fun and entertainment for gamers around the world, the best video game system controllers ever also give a quick history lesson into the evolution of video game consoles. Video game consoles, such as the early models like Atari up through the more recent releases like the Nintendo Wii, and their unique controllers come and go throughout the years and each brings something new to the table. But each had something in common in that they all had a controller. Which video game controller is the best ever? You decide gamers. Tell us by voting for your favorites and adding comments below.

Some of the earliest video game controllers, such as the ones used by the Atari 2600 and ColecoVision, were large, clunky and wired, each with a directional joystick and a few simple buttons. A far cry from the sleek and ergonomic controllers we see today, these early controllers provided plenty of room for improvement.

Enter the Nintendo Entertainment System. The classic controller for the NES console was simple. It included a directional pad and just four buttons. It wasn't much, but it fit nicely in the hands and certainly got the job done. Nintendo took the NES controllers a step further with the introduction of the light zapper, the power pad and the robot-looking device known as the power glove. These additions didn't really catch on, but make for collectors items today.

As video games evolved, the controllers became more advanced and more complex. Multiple joysticks and directional pads were added as were a number of buttons. Many, such as the latest controllers for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, lost their cords and went wireless, allowing gamers more flexibility when playing their favorite games.

The wireless gaming revolution went a step further with the introduction of the Nintendo Wii. No longer was gaming restricted to pressing buttons but now opened up to moving the controller to participate. Not to be left out of the party, Microsoft got in on that sensation with motion-sensing technology of their own by eliminating the controller completely with the Xbox Kinect system.

While video game controllers may be a thing of the past with motion-sensing technology on the rise, these favorite controllers, just like the classic consoles they represent, will be in our hearts forever.

<![CDATA[23 Insane Situations Only Sims Addicts Would Think Are Normal]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-of-a-normal-day-in-the-sims/dukeharten

Hear ye hear ye, gamers! Anybody who enjoys The Sims will love some of the craziest descriptions of day-to-day life in the game, featured below. This list takes cues from the popular Reddit thread, and brings you the best of anormaldayinthesims!

These funny "a normal day in The Sims" stories cover everything from adultery and death to dancing in puddles of pee. A normal day in the Sims jokes are nothing like your typical jokes - herein lie the craziest happenings from the game, like dying of starvation because there's too much clutter on the counter. 

23 Insane Situations Only Sims Addicts Would Think Are Normal,

Baby Mama Drama

The Lovelace family decided being rich and sexy wasn't enough, so they started a sex club. Barbie and Ken Doll were invited and Barbie got so jealous after catching Ken trying to knock up Jezebel Lovelace that she flat out died. Also, Jezebel has no idea whose baby she's pregnant with. Now Jezebel's husband and Ken are fighting in a windowless bathroom with a stinking toilet.

Flirty Cop Ruins First Day

It was my first day as a police officer. I was booking a criminal at the station and was about to search her. Suddenly my coworker jumped in front of me and started flirting with the suspect and showing off his muscles. Then he spoiled my favorite show and walked away. I'm not sure if I want to go back for my second day.

New Neighbor Might Be a Pyro

A new neighbor had moved into town - just a regular guy looking for a new beginning. I visited him and we talked for eight hours straight, becoming best friends. He also peed himself but that's not important. Soon afterwards, maybe out of frustration, he went to a random drawer and lit it on fire with his mind. Needless to say I invited him to move in with my wife and son and he accepted. The more the merrier!

Extramarital Extraterrestrial

My sim married a man on the top of his career, then cheated on him with an Asian man, who happened to be an alien in disguise.

Dead Husband Is Jealous

So I was married, but then got interested in a guy. My husband died so I thought it was okay to go ahead and start an official relationship with this new man. However, my husband's ghost has started rumors in town that I am currently cheating on him so now all my acquaintances are judging me. Am I expected to stay with my dead husbands ghost for forever? It's really complicating my social life.

Tired of Grandma

I had a sweet, loving couple for such a long time. They had such a successful marriage and life, but then the game prompted that soon the end would come. After a week of still living, it never came. So I made grandma run the treadmill and then woohoo two times until her heart gave. And since I can't woohoo grandpa to death, I moved him out as a lonely widower.

Family Affair

My father divorced my mother and married my girlfriend's mother. Now I'm engaged to my girlfriend who is my step sister. Help.

A Proud Father

One of my Sim couples was expecting their first child. I guess the husband got a little too excited because he got in the car and drove to the hospital without his wife, who gave birth at home, alone. You'd think the husband would come home after he realized his mistake. Nope. He proceeded to flirt with a random lady carrying her newborn child out of the hospital. She started to flirt back. Her husband got angry. My Sim husband went home only to ignore his wife and new child. My Sims are now divorced.

Dad Dies from Too Much Woohoo

I married a man much older than me so I could have a baby. And then when he got old I woohoo'd him four times in a row in an attempt to have him die from over-exertion. But when it finally happened, I felt bad because my son has no father now.

Grave and Ghost Unrelated, Probably

I moved into a new house and there was a grave in the backyard. I walk out to the grave everyday and cry over the loss of whoever it was. I've never met this person, but I assume they are someone worth crying over. I cry in bed then play games online and feel happy again. After a good night's sleep, I walk out to the grave and mourn the loss of this unknown person again. On an unrelated note, a ghost keeps coming into my house at night and I hate him.

A list of the best video game movies. All of the best video game movies have been included, but if you believe we missed any of your favorite films based on video games, please feel free to add it to the list of the best films based on video games yourself. While every major genre has been included, most of the best video game films are either sci-fi, fantasy, or action. In Hollywood, video game movies are almost synonymous with "bad movies". That said, there have been some relatively decent ones, such as the "Prince of Persia" film, and the "Final Fantasy" animated feature, thought there is still a relatively undefined question about what the best video game movies are. If you're a gamer though, then you're bound to enjoy at least a few of the films based on video games on this list.
