never heard of the miner or the pirate, but the others i agree are great icons. i'd perhaps include Crash or Reiko from the RR series.

I see that you dislike the 360 but why hate the games that come with it?

I don't own, or plan on buying a 360 but the console at least have some great games and Master Chief is just one example of a character that shines above the the rest in the gaming industry.

Anyway they forgot Kratos. -_-

They forgot, Kratos, Crash Bandicoot, Kirby, Spyro, and Mega Man. Also in my opinion, as much as I like Aerith, sh should still not have replaced Cloud.
