Solid Snake/Big Boss
Jak & Daxter
The Prince of Persia
Ratchet & Clank
Jin Kazama/Heihcahi Mishima
Ico & Yorda
My original wish list in more or less my preferred order. Radec and Big Daddy were nice surprises that I did not expect to make it in. I will be buying the game regardless of who makes it in but to casual/indifferent fans (those who haven't made up their mind yet) and critics, having the likes of Crash, Spyro, Lara Croft, Solid Snake and Cloud will indeed make a big difference.
This is a fun thread, comparing our original guesses from months ago to what's known now? Sure, here's mine!
Nathan Drake (IN)
Sly Cooper (IN)
Ape Escape Guy (IN, Didn't remember his name, it had been a loooong time)
Killzone Guy (IN, Wasn't familiar enough with the series to know a characer's name)
Fat Princess (IN, Yes, I suspected her from the very beginning, I've always considered Fat Princess to be the "Castle Crashers" of PS3, and, ya know, Jigglypuff equivalent...)
And I've played more of my PS3 recently, and have come to like the idea of these characters as well:
Cole (IN, Twice...)
Dante (IN, kind of...)
Sweet Tooth (IN)
So I didn't guess to shabby so far! I'm happy with it.
it has great characters but none of those mario/link characters that really made the company. i.e. crash spyro cloud lara
Eh they really didnt make the company but the did make the the ps1. J&D, R&C, and sly made ps2. Sackboy, Cole, and Drake made ps3
I thought Big Boss/ Solid Snake was a shoe in for this game but they ended up scrapping the face of the franchise for a sidekick. Hopefully he will be dlc or something.
