The Goose (Untitled Goose Game)

Top 10 Best Video Game Characters of 2019

The Goose from Untitled Goose Game turned into a bit of an iconic figure upon the game’s release, and for good reason.

Emerging from its pond with the sole intent of annoying townspeople, it’s the kind of villain or antihero people can instantly identify with.

It wants to annoy a farmer who has locked it out of the town, so it does. It wants to terrorize a child who is afraid of geese, and so it does. It wants to make its way to the center of town, and darn it all, it’s going to do it no matter the cost to the townspeople’s sanity.

Even as it nears the end of its misadventures, this straight-forward desire doesn’t change. It has no ulterior motive or secret plan, and continues to act like… well, a meddlesome goose.

Its simplistic drive to wreak havoc, and to do whatever it wants in the limited scope of time it has to do so, makes it endearing in a way other video game characters can’t manage even with the benefit of dialogue and exceptionally lengthier stories. And, as a result, it’s likely to endure far longer in gamers’ minds than those characters.
