Here's an unusual 'top ten' (actually 21) list. Crispy Gamer has posted an article celebrating Gaming's 21 Greatest Old People. I've never heard of some of these guys, but our very own Admiral Tolwyn made the list at number nine. Check out the full list here.
Notes: Tolwyn was originally merely a cartoon of an old guy. But in the later, full-motion-video iterations of the game, decorated thespian Malcolm McDowell stepped into the role to lend gravitas to lines like, "Mankind was at his zenith when fighting the Kilrathi."
