Tomorrow sees the arrival of national video game day, and Star Wars filters down the many, many characters into a top 10 of the most essential characters in Star Wars gaming.
It’s no secret many of Star Wars’ most popular characters spawned from the iconic saga’s films and series. But as video game fans of the galaxy far, far away are well aware, the interactive entertainment medium has also contributed its fair share of memorable faces to the franchise George Lucas created over 40 years ago.
In fact, with dozens upon dozens of games spanning four decades and introducing hundreds of characters, you’d have better luck grooming a Wookiee than picking a favorite among all those pixels and polygons.
Revan (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic)
You could pack an entire cantina with awesome characters from 2003’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. But while the role-playing game spawned many a memorable Jedi and Sith, few KOTOR characters have had as iconic of a look or made as big of an impression on gamers as Revan. Known as one of the greatest Sith leaders of the Old Republic, there weren’t many who could face Revan on a battlefield and survive the encounter.
