I see good video game characters as a mixture of relatability and wish fulfillment. If I not only feel empathy for the character but would also want to put myself into his/her shoes, then that's job well done in my eyes.

Good video game characters have a distinct personality to which I can relate and/or a cause which I can support. In the absence of both, I like characters who fuck with other characters' minds.
