Who’s the PlayStation star of 2012? OPM readers vote for the best characters of the year


Jason Brody, Far Cry 3

A relative newcomer here with his game barely weeks out of release. However, Far Cry 3′s excellent mix of emergent action and animal slaughtering/handbag making has clearly won you over fast. While Brody’s popularity is mainly down to being in a great game, credit must got to his understated presence – largely a voiceless avatar for you to control, his weary statements and occasional triumphant whoops are used sparingly enough to make you remember ’who’ you are without ever overpowering your own sense place in the game.
