The question is simple; you have to drop a squad of the most elite bad-asses onto an island to duke it out with other bad-asses to determine who the best of the best is. Your choices are limited to any video game character who was a playable protagonist in a first or third person shooter game. What does your squad look like?
The Cast of Checkpoint XP choose the following in a fantasy draft style.
Nate Bender’s team…
- Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid.
- Lone Wanderer from Fallout 3
- Cyborg Raiden from Metal Gear Solid
- Doom guy from Doom.
Norris Howard’s team…

Robbie Landis’ team…
