2018 has been another big year for video games. Just have a think back over the last 12 months and all the amazing new worlds we’ve been able to explore. Sometimes though, it’s about the people you meet along the way. Not in real life, mind you. No we mean all the amazing characters.
We love our video game characters, but with so many great games, we can’t decide which is our favourite. That’s why we’re passing it over to you. During December, get ready for our first ever World Cup of Characters.
Which game character do you think deserves to be crowned the best of 2018?
Who’s eligible for the World Cup of Characters 2018?
Any character that starred in a game released during 2018 is eligible. We want you to let us know who you think should qualify for the Final 16. Are you all about Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption 2? More of a Lara Croft fan after playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider? Or is the plucky Spyro getting your vote?
Who will win? You decide!
Let us know who you want to be included in the Final 16 by posting in the comments below. Remember, they need to have featured in a game that was released in 2018.
Or you can let us know on Twitter, using #WorldCupOfCharacters.
We’ll select a Final 16 and randomly allocate them into the Group Stages (this is a World Cup after all). Then it’s your votes on Twitter that decide who makes it through to the head-to-head quarter finals and knock-out stages.
This is your chance to ensure your favourite character gets the recognition they deserve. And if you aren’t already, make sure you follow us on Twitter for all the action. There can only be one winner in the ultimate video game showdown.
Let the games begin!
