Remember these guys? Probably not. Take a walk down memory lane with the Top Ten Gaming Characters You’d Probably Forgotten About...
I know the headline says "probably", I just hope people haven't forgotten about Garrett, cuase Theif was a great series. Fingers crossed for "Thief 4".
"jack and daxter" LMAO Its JaK&Daxter and it has still many many fans, Jak Trilogy HD just released last month LOL
of all those games NEVER heard of DIZZY rest should make some kind of come back.
Means you're not one of the older gamers. :) Dizzy games were all the rage back on the old Spectrum/Commadore/Amstrad home computers many moons ago.
I can't believe he left out Boogerman!! It seems he forgot about this great hero as well :(
Actually Boogerman and Gex were the first characters that popped in my head. They can't be that forgotten if thats who you and I thought of when reading this article.
first one that came to mind was Tomba
I know! and what about "Bug" from "Bug" on Sega Saturn. God that game frustrated the hell out of me.
Out of all of those characters, the only one I'd like to see again is Crash Bandicoot.
Crash, Earthworm Jim, and the Streets of Rage gang need a come back! Minus Earthworm Jim HD
As much as I enjoy Streets of Rage I wouldnt want to see a comeback. A new game would probably ruin everything that makes it such a classic.
There was a fan made re-make of the SOR series a while back and from what I saw it was amazing. Sega slapped them down, they were forced to pull the project altogether a day or so after it was completed. http://www.youtube.com/watc... The right way to go about it would be to show these guys some appreciation then port it to the consoles. The guys who spent years on it get credit and Sega make money from the franchise. As much as I like Sega their business practice is piss poor in a lot of aspects.
Weird list since I haven't forgotten about any of the characters (the Thief character and the character at the top I never knew to begin with, so I wouldn't count them ). Kid Icarus is one of the biggest topics in the gaming community right now. So number 5 is very clearly false. JAK and Daxter are also very much talked about, so that too is disqualified.
What About Blasto? http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I would like a new Blasto game
I was expecting Blasto to make the list too. I think I still have that disc laying around somewhere.
How about Alex Kidd on the old Master System? I used to love those games, he was cool...
game informer did an article on them recently so he was fresh in everyones minds lol
Alex Kidd was my first game funnily enough i got my master system out yesterday and it still looked great i wish they would bring him back that would be awesome
They forgot Busby the Cat, Lost Vikings, and Alfred the Chicken. They also forgot Bucky O'hare, Battletoads, Double Dragon, Blasto. The list can continue on and on lol. Characters I wish I could forget are Slippy the Frog, and that damn annoying fairy from Zelda.
Pretty horrible list IMO. Only one he nailed was ECCO. Klonoa,Gex,Sir Dan(MediEvil)Billy&Jimmy(D ouble Dragon)and The Battletoads are missing and on top of my list. All these I mentioned are way more DESERVING than Crash,Jak&Daxter and Dizzy! Really? Dizzy #1? FAIL.
Ah, the memories... ;) http://media.giantbomb.com/...
The good old days. Ecco and streets of rage.
Bubsy from the 16bit days. Bubsy even had his own cartoon. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I... want... a current-gen... Ecco... title... O_O
why isnt blinx on the list
No Gex?! :(
One does not simply forget about Crash Bandicoot.
