If the reveal about having only 20 characters is true and that others will be DLC I am asking which fans have had it the worse? I mostly mean the big four ( Crash, Cloud, Snake, Spyro) and I will state my reasons for each of them.
Snake: While I like him the most out of all of the ones listed and this may cloud my judgement I believe he may have been screwed over the hardest. To start off we early on get confirmation that David Hayter will be voice acting for this game and that Snake will be a shoe in and we even get a Paul Gale hint that ( we thought) explicitly referred to him and then we got the leak with Raiden. While this dissapointed many true MGS fans we didn't give up hope and when the trailer for MGS Ground Zeroes came out our faith was seemingly renewed and we thought we would get Big Boss ( just as good). Then we get a swift kick to the gonads by the Sid Shuman guy and maybe Snake will be overpriced DLC. To those people that say Kojima wouldn't put Snake in a " cheap knockoff" of Smash Bros remember he was in a similar fighter with Optimus Prime and Yu Gi from Yu-Gi-Oh.
Cloud: If I remember clearly I think Paul Gale gave a hint about a Final Fantasy character but I'm not sure. Some people on the forum say that Omar said a FF character was in this game as well.
Crash: While probably the most deserving out of all the characters I have always been doubtfull of his presence in this game due to the company that is Activision.
Spyro: Arguably equally deserving as Crash, it seems Spyro is out due to the same reasons as Crash.
Hopefully these characters are unlockables but I wouldn't get my hopes to high. Put your thoughts below on which fans have been screwed over the most and it doesn't have to be the big four that I listed.

Solved! Go to Solution.
I agree. Snake was almost a shoe-in due to his popularity and the confirmation by Cole's VA of David Hayter's involvement. If Raiden ends up making it over Snake I call BS and would agree this game is just one big marketing ploy. MGSRising won't even be out until next year. Same with the new DMC...

I wouldn't go as far as to say that laura croft was a huge instrument in playstation history as compared to the other four.
sure she's a great charecter but we're talking the big four here!!
Snake: his game INVENTED the stealth genre back then and it's plot and boss battles are still talked about to this day.
Cloud: put final fantasy on the map and took drammatic RPGs to whole new level while also firmly establishing sony as equal to nintendo.
Crash: was one of the biggest PS mascots and went toe to toe with nintendo's mascot mario more then just once.
Sure tomb raider is a great game but it went multiplatform very quick, and didn't revolutionize sony the way these others did.
