Fair points. These 4 + Lara Croft are the most important characters in PS history. There are no characters in at the moment that have made as big an impact as these guys. The current roster seems to be more focussed on selling other peoples games then their own.
If Crash, Cloud, lara, Snake and Spyro were in the game then All-Stars would have more of a focus on selling other people's games
Hows that? only two of them characters have a game coming out over the next couple of years.
MGS Ground Zeros, Skylanders, Tomb Raider reboot.
Aw my bad I thought you meant Solid Snake. and I was origionally referring to other devs (hence the inclusion of Raiden, Dante and the like)
