It’s time to show NPCs the appreciation they deserve. There’s even a whole, movie about it, @FreeGuyMovie.

What other characters have been nominated alongside Guy? Samuel Hayden from Doom (2016), Parvati Holcomb from The Outer World and Mollie from Sea of Thieves. Guy is the only character named who does not belong to a video game available on Xbox Game Pass. For those who do not know the characters, we leave you a short description:
- Samuel Hayden, Doom (2016) y Doom Eternal: A high rank of the UAC that has a machine body, but that seems to be more than it appears. He’s always watching us.
- Parvati Holcomb, The Outer Worlds: Shy, empathetic and everyone’s favorite. It is the heart of the ship and the crew.
- Chief Trader Mollie, Sea of Thieves: Animal lover and merchant of the Mercantile Alliance, he always has a trip for you!
- Guy, Free Guy: Played by Ryan Reynolds, Guy has the same daily routine and has never done anything extraordinary. Outgoing and always cheerful, but a bit naive, Guy works in a bank in the big city.
