The gaming world is a place of continuous change. As technology advances, so to does our gaming experience. As such, in this in this ever altering industry, many great game characters have been lost. Yet, there are some characters that have stood above that change and have become iconic images in the gaming world and now serve as inspiration to many newer titles in the industry. The characters in this list are a few of those great characters. (Culture, Mario, Mega Man, Metal Gear, Sonic, The Legend of Zelda)

i personally disagree with sonic,although im a huge fan no one can deny the crap ton of well crap games hes had only recently has he begun to get better,but it is all opinion though to me the prince has stood the test of time,literally.

but regardless,the point is even though he is regaining momentum,hes lost so much respect,due to the amount of bad games hes had,people now will no longer give sonic a chance for his new games even though theyre amazing,all they think of when they see sonic is sonic 06,or unleashed night time levels,or sonic 3d blast,etc...,believe it or not some people dont like colors or generations,and i dont know why.

I can and will deny it. Sonic games in my opinion are fantastic. I prefer the Sonic games from Sonic Adventure onwards over the 2D games. Let's be honest here, the only reason people call the newer Sonic games crap is because they let nostalgia get in the way. If Sonic's first game was Sonic Adventure people wouldn't be saying Sonic games are crap.

not really,i started with the adventure series,and i played the origonals after,but sonic has had a lot of bad games,sonic and the secret rings.black knight,sonic unleashed night time levels,sonic shuffle,sonic r,sonic and the fighters,sonic 2006,he has had some terrible games,but regardless like i said i still love the character,but imo,hes not a character that has stood the test of time imo.

the thing is, SEGA is the one that may have lost some respect, it's SEGA's failure not Sonic's. Sonic himself as a character is still popularity and likeable and fans still looking forward for decent Sonic games.

I'm a veteran Sonic fan myself and I agree with some of what you said only because I feel there's a Sonic fan in you, but nonetheless, to argue on this is just futile.

let's just hope they do at least one more decent Sonic game in our lifetime.

Terrible list. It's more like 'hey these are iconic characters'

Sonic really hasn't; more crappy titles than good.

Link definitely has.

Solid Snake is not exactly an old character. That being said, Big Boss has been featured in more games now than him.

Mario sure.

Megaman, no. Why? Because capcom is dead set on making sure he doesn't get a proper new title. Only cameos.

What do you mean Solid Snake isn't an old character hes's just as old as Link and Mega Man he was created in 1986/87 just like them. On another note it's a shame poor Crash was killed in his prime,he had so much to give. :(

He probably forgot that Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 existed.

Donkey Kong

I would've put Mega Man 1st.
Mario 2nd.
& Sonic 3rd.
I love all three of them, but I think MegaMan MAY have more games than Mario.
Not sure.
