GR: It’s largely a matter of opinion, but many may consider PlayStation to have the best cast of characters throughout three generations of platforms. Sure, Nintendo has Mario, Link, and Samus, but outside of the big three, the roster in Super Smash Bros. isn’t anything to brag about. I’m looking at you, Ice Climbers.
PlayStation, on the other hand, has no one near Mario status. But with 20 total playable characters each equally worthy of fans’ cheers and jeers, and each with plenty of personality and style, the roster here is a more complete package. And you might say that third-party franchises, like Tekken or Metal Gear Solid, were at one point synonymous with PlayStation.
