Assassin's Creed fans officially vote for their favourite assassin, and you already know who won

A fine choice

There are so many beloved lead characters in video games. Link. Samus Aran. Arthur Morgan. Master Chief. That one weird-looking Mii we all have on our Wii that we made to rinse our best mate. But when it comes down to it, it seems there's one hero who stands above the rest.

Assassin's Creed fans would almost all agree that Ezio Auditore is the greatest of all the assassins. The lead character of Assassin's Creed II was an instant hit when Ubisoft introduced him to the world back in 2009, and it's easy to see why.

Take a look at Ezio's big return in the upcoming Assassin's Creed Nexus below!

Many Assassins have come and gone since Ezio's debut, but few have had the impact and sheer staying power of Mr Auditore. Heck, he's even coming back for a brand-new game next year.

It should come as no surprise, then, that when GAMINGbible asked its readers to choose the most popular video game character of all time, Ezio came out on top of the poll by a huge distance.

The seasoned assassin managed to beat the likes of Agent 47, Geralt Of Rivia, Lara Croft, Jill Valentine, and Arthur Morgan to claim that coveted top spot. An impressive feat for a character who is actually relatively much younger than some of the other icons he went up against.

The final round was actually a showdown between Ezio and God Of War's Kratos. While in a real fight Kratos would have made confetti with Ezio's insides to decorate Atreus' Birthday party, in terms of sheer popularity he fell to the fan-favourite assassin.

It's a hell of a win for our boy, and proof that even 14 years after his debut, Ezio Auditore is the greatest assassin of them all.
