Video game mascots

Post by Storm on February 2nd 2012, 10:44 am

To make this creative, I'll make a list of various video game mascots (excluding the most famous ones) and the question is simply this: if you had the option to choose only 3 of these mascots for a new video game, which would they be and why? Make sure your reasons for your choices are specific and not answers such as "I like them because they're cool".


The mascots are:


Bomberman

Crash Bandicoot

Jak and Daxter

Earthworm Jim

Blinx The Time Sweeper

Agent 47

James Bond

Samus Aran

Jazz Jackrabbit

Captain Falcon

Conker the Squirrel (Conker)

Frank West (Dead Rising)

Rayman

Donkey Kong

Serious Sam

Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)

Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)

Max Payne

Kyo Kusanagi (King of Fighters)

Pyramid Head (Silent Hill)

Klonoa

Captain Olimar (Pikmin)

Viewtiful Joe

Serious Sam, Samus and Bomberman (or Jazz Jackrabbit)
why?
i like the games they are in, and the characters themselves.
what more to say? they all can cause explosions too

I think Ryu (Street Fighter) deserves a spot on your list Storm.

I'd choose James Bond, Frank West and Serious Sam. Why? Because in my eyes they can make the perfect team. James Bond going undercover and collecting info from the inside, Frank West collecting info from the outside like a reporter and he is a good-at-everything type guy and Serious Sam is the mad gunner guy and all of his dialogue consists of one-liners (I'm not saying he is stupid, currently he is my favorite mascot...f*ck, just remembered about Dante).

I wanted to give note to some of the lesser known mascots or the ones that gamers have forgotten about over the years, but you're right. Ryu from Street Fighter should have been on that list.

Agent 47
Sam Fisher
Alex Mercer

Guess that game's genre, ha. Stealth has always been my thing, and Mercer is here because putting Predator in there would be inconsistent.

Captain Falcon, just because without him when will they know to show their moves?

Rayman: Always liked him.. lazy personified.. made floating hands a dream of mine.. then I realized how insane that is of course.

Pyramid Head: First time I've ever been really scared of a game.. all because of him.

Bomberman: I grew up playing games with him as lead character and started with Bomberman back on the Game Boy Color then moved to N64 titles, my favorite N64 title being Bomberman 64. It's been a long time since the last game came out so I wouldn't mind it at all if Hudson made a new one or did a reboot of the old N64 games and ported them to the Nintendo 3DS in a single cartridge.

Who doesn't like blowing stuff up as Bomberman? Razz

Viewtiful Joe: One of the coolest superhero games I've played, hands down. Played the first game back on the Nintendo Gamecube and loved the series instantly.

Jak and Daxter: Two of the best duo heroes in video games next to Ratchet and Clank. A new game for them would be great since it's a bit overdue.
