They often say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and it's never been more evident than the current-gen era. Countless console shooters continue to follow the Halo model while dozens of MMO developers compete to create the next World of Warcraft, often times with sub-par results. Sometimes though, the stars will align and a title will improve on its predecessor. Gears of War took the Kill/Switch aiming system and ran with it while Splinter Cell managed to recreate the intense stealth action found in the Metal Gear Series. In saying this, there is one title in particular staring Sony right in the face that could mean an immediate pay-day: Super Smash Brothers.
It's no secret, Sony followers would bend over backwards for a title that pays fan service to their favorite PS characters. Sony, who has been a main player in the home console world for the past fourteen years, has had their share of memorable characters appear on all three of their respective systems. If done correctly, a quality fighting title featuring all of the Playstation's most memorable characters, from Kratos to Parappa, would undoubtedly be an immediate hit. Granted, many of the characters who gained notoriety on the Playstation platform are now owned by others companies and have since gone multiplatform, so it narrows down the list quite a bit. In the meantime, here is ReelGamers' choice for the Sony Smash Brothers roster:
1. Kratos (God of War)
2. Sly (Sly Cooper Series)
3. Monkey (Ape Escape)
4. Ico (Ico)
5. Rico (Killzone)
