I have a preordained soft spot for the snarker-type characters in just about anything, but the ones in videogames are my absolute favorites (well, it has the biggest number of favorite snarkers, my FAVORITE snarker would have to be Fred Weasley, and to a lesser extent his brother George, for reasons I'd like to list here but wouldn't be relevant), as you could probably tell by my post about Jade and Angelo.
But as far as favorite overall characters go, Haseo from the G.U. era of .Hack is pretty high up on the list. In the first game, after being shown as a generally-decent (if noobish) character, he becomes a total dick after seeing one of his closest friends get comatose'd right before his eyes. This shapes him into the totally powerful ego-tripping dickhat we all know and love. Then, over the course of three games, he is softened, hardened, broken, rebuilt, and eventually reshaped into a...generally decent, if still a tad irritable, character.
Plus, holy Hell he can throw down!

Tidus was, is, and will always be my hero! Grew up thinking Tidus and Jecht were the most epic heroes of all time
