I started a new job a few months ago, and I'm having a really hard time putting names to all the new faces I see on a daily basis. However, I don't seem to have any problem naming video-game characters after seeing them a few times. Hopefully, that doesn't say something about the value I place on video games versus the value I place on my coworkers.

Can you identify these video-game characters and solve the crossword below if I only give you visual clues? If you're drawing a blank, you can find the answers on page two. You may also click the image for a larger view.
