Everyone has a favorite character, whether it's one from a movie, a book, or a TV show. Lots of those characters have gotten their own video games, but there are several glaring omissions. These are iconic characters, each with their own claim to fame. Some may have had minor roles in other games, but we want more than that. Here are eight characters that need top billing in a video game, along with a description of the game we'd like to see them star in.

Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry)

Inspector Harry Callahan of the San Francisco Police Department was the main character in all five films in the Dirty Harry series. He was the first real police antihero; a man who would go to almost any length to get his man. While he tends to brush up against the boundaries of ethics and the law, Callahan always pursues what he feels is justice, whether that means killing a suspect or letting them go free. A Dirty Harry videogame would be an unapologetic action affair, filled with shootouts, car chases, and ambiguous moral decisions.
