Do you guys think masterchief is as iconic as mario, or sonic?

I think Halo is more iconic than just Master Chief. Although MC is a very well known character.


This. I love me some chief, but I think the game as a whole is more iconic to me. it did for FPSs what SMB and the NES did for gaming.

nope, maybe 20 years down the line if they are still making halo games but right now he's just too young.

Asked my mum, she didn't have a clue who he was. But she knows that the character looks like, as shes seen me playing it a lot, so she probably just doesn't know the name


Did you ask her if she knew what halo is? My dad doesn't know master chief. But he does know halo


Nope she doesn't know what it is. Shes a middleaged asian woman xD

He is to me, but MS don't really have any iconic characters like Sony, Sega and Nintendo.

My parents know who he is, and my mother is able to recognize the Halo theme song. That's because I played it a lot, but at the same time I know and see a lot of older people who recognize him or at least the Halo part. I think he's definitely getting up there with Mario and is probably tied with Sonic now.

Also, for people who said Microsoft doesn't have iconic characters like Sony or Nintendo... Lol.

Sony has none. Microsoft has MC.

No. Mario is the Mickey Mouse of video games.

Sony has none, lol.

So Kratos, Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter, Sweet Tooth, Nathan Drake and Sly Cooper aren't iconic?

They have icons that are known by gamers. But none gamers? From my experienxe? No. I love Uncharted slycooper and others. But they are not known outside of gamers. Sack boy is probably the closest to being sonys mascot. I just wish they promoted LBP more. It has potential, sony just doesnt realize it.

The game he's in is too mature for him to ever become an icon outside the gaming world. Most people with consoles will recognise him but outside that probably no-one. Sackboy (LittleBigPlantet) will probably become an icon before MC because of his wide appeal


Really? Sackboy? I think MC surpasses Sackboy in popularity by far. You have to own a PS3 to know who Sackboy is. 99% of all gamers know who MC is even if they don't own an XBOX 360.
