40 Best Supporting Video Game Characters Ever
Video games are awesome, we all know that. They allow us to escape the dreariness of so called real life (except The Sims obviously) and become someone else for a little while. But what defines video games, alongside awe inspiring shots of things blowing up, are the characters within. Most of the time the hero or main protagonist is the one we love the most, Master Chief, Commander Shepherd, Mario etc. But sometimes perhaps it is the lesser characters, the supporting cast, good and bad that makes a game truly stand out and come to life.

27. Dr Peter Venkman – The Ghostbusters Video Game
This one feels a little like cheating as they mostly set this character up in the movies, but they managed to recapture and add to Peter Venkman brilliantly for the game, in no small part thanks to Bill Murray doing the voice over of course. It was awesome just to see this guy again. Dry wit and explosive temper. Yeah, it’s Bill Murray, we mean Peter Venkman, alright!
