14 Frank West

Dead Ris­ing

XBox: The Official Magazine - - OXM INVESTIGAT­ES -

He’s cov­ered wars, you know. This schlubby pho­to­jour­nal­ist isn’t ex­actly your typ­i­cal videogame hero, but there’s some­thing in­ex­pli­ca­bly en­dear­ing about Frank West. When the chips are down and the dead walk the Earth, he’ll al­ways rise to the oc­ca­sion, cam­era in one hand and a base­ball bat with a saw blade duct-taped to it in the other. Weirdly, he’s had a sto­ried his­tory not just in his own open-world zom­bie games, but in fight­ing games, too, throw­ing out com­bos in Tat­sunoko Vs Cap­com: Ul­ti­mate All-Stars and the Marvel Vs Cap­com se­ries. No­tably the lat­ter means he’s the only char­ac­ter on this list who can lit­er­ally beat Thanos in a fight.
