Top 5 Main Characters from Turn-Based RPGs

Charlie Norris

I enjoy turn-based RPGs! I wouldn’t say that I am the biggest fan and that I play every single title that comes out, but I did play a fair amount of them. What I like most about the genre is the breathtaking worlds, the great side characters, the fun and random quests, the story (at least when it's not too convoluted…) and the general system. However, for all these amazing things, there is one area where they don’t do as well. It’s their main character. Leaving aside the usual praise for Cloud from Final Fantasy 7, most main characters are bland compared to the supporting cast.
