In honor of it being Black History Month (and for the sake of getting a new Top 5 out to you guys), we're going to count down the best video game characters of African descent.
In picking these, I tried to keep in mind to avoid characters who were either very one dimensional or offensively stereotypical. There may be exceptions if the character is memorable or hilarious or have other redeeming traits that win over any negative qualities. Otherwise, we're mainly looking for actual well-developed fictional folks here. Let's get to it!
