What are Mascots Good for Anymore?

Mascots are inescapable, yet these enduring icons couldn't be a richer part of our gamer lives for reasons as old as our virtual pastime. (3DS, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

They're good for the funny looking suits you see at football games! In all seriousness, mascots put a face on your company. Mario is THE face of gaming. Master Chief and Kratos are very iconic characters. Mascots help people recognize you. When they see those characters, they know something good is coming.

That's why it's classed as an OPINION article.

Look at the tag underneath the article image. It's listed as an opinion piece.

Oh and your probably a big N fan. You guys rely on Mario lol. Well it's not stereotyping if it's the truth >.>

You had a point right up until you generalized some random act of ignorance being synonymous with Nintendo fans. There was literally no reason for that. :/

Well obviously I did have a reason or I would have not said that.

Brand awareness. Trojan, geico, tucan sam, tony the tiger. A good mascot is just as good as a good character. I say don draper, walter white not only do think those characters but think amc and those actors thats why jon ham and bryan cranston are doing movies and car ads.

mascots are excellent way to target young audience. and associate a character to the brand. crash bandicoot was a great mascot in the early 90s when they still made good crash games. when i see a mascot i instantly think of the company behind it

Like noxeven said, brand awareness.

to the author , ahem leave your opinion to your self .
dont touch Sonic , Crash , Mario , Mega man .
at least they give us some rest from the generic shooters and the cinematic experience that we have to deal with nowadays .
i hope companies can give us at least one good platforming game every year .
