    Default Can you name 5 iconic characters for EACH console?

    I can't. Thus the purpose of this thread is to make you do it.

    Obvious icons of past platforms include Mario or Link for Nintendo and Sonic for Sega. And maybe also Raiden. Perhaps less obvious would be Pacman or Clyde for Atari.

    Possibly, Capcom icons like Megaman or Ken/Ryu or M. Bison can qualify as NES icons.

    We've got Master Chief for XBOX and I don't much else about that console. Maybe GLaDOS for 360.

    I don't want to mention PS1 'cause I'll just start listing FF7 characters... and Squall. PS2 would probably be Sora and Riku or Dante from DMC.

    Anyway, let's put our heads together and find these iconic icons.
    Jack: How do you know?

    Will: It's more of a feeling really.

    Jack: Well, that's not scientific. Feeling isn't knowing. Feeling is believing. If you believe it, you can't know because there's no knowing what you believe. Then again, no one should believe what they know either. Once you know anything that anything becomes unbelievable if only by virtue of the fact you now... know it. You know?

    Will: No.

    If Demolition Man were remade today

    Huxley: What's wrong? You broke contact.
    Spartan: Contact? I didn't even touch you.
    Huxley: Don't you want to make love?
    Spartan: Is that what you call this? Why don't we just do it the old-fashioned way?
    Huxley: NO!
    Spartan: Whoa! Okay, calm down.
    Huxley: Don't tell me to calm down!
    Spartan: What's gotten into you? 'Cause it sure as hell wasn't me.
    Huxley: Physical relations in the way of intercourse are no longer acceptable John Spartan.
    Spartan: What? Why the hell not?
    Huxley: It's the law, John. And for your information, the very idea that you suggested it makes me feel personally violated.
    Spartan: Wait a minute... violated? Huxley what the hell are you accusing me of here?
    Huxley: You need to leave, John.
    Spartan: But Huxley.
    Huxley: Get out!
    Moments later Spartan is arrested for "violating" Huxley.

    By the way, that's called satire. Get over it.

    Atari: ET if he counts as he's a iconic part of the American game crash way back in the '80s. Or Pac Man even though he was more famous in the arcade.

    Nintendo : Link or Mario, or even Samus.

    Sega : Sonic or the original mascot but usually forgotten about Alex the Kid.

    Playstation: Lara Croft ? Crash Bandicoot ? Kratos ? Spyro ? Cloud ? Snake ?

    Xbox : Master Chief.

    Atari - Can't. Pacman is all I've got.

    NES - Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Megaman, Simon Belmont, Samus, yeah, I can definitely do NES

    SNES - Most of the ones I mentioned for NES work here.

    PSX - Crash Bandicoot, Lara Croft, Parappa, maybe Solid Snake, maybe Cloud could even count. I don't know.

    I mean, I believe definitely Cloud and Sephiroth are inescapable PlayStation icons.

    Samus is a good pick for NES.

    Lara Croft, yes. And I completely forgot about Crash Bandicoot. One of the first games available at launch. Not my kind of game though really.
