^Yes it is. It's arguably a GOAT franchise.

It's not as popular as you might think. Its lifetime sales are around the same as Kirby.

Metal Gear is nowhere up there as you think it is.


It easily Konami's biggest franchise and a huge triple A series overall. Highly revered by fans and critics. It has made 33 Million in sales. Higher then Kirby, Mega Man, Metroid and Super Smash Bros.

That's less then 1/2 of Zelda (70m). Kirby is also hovering at around 33m. It's not S-Tier.

It's sales + critical acclaim.

Metal Gear has huge acclaim and good sales. That brings it up. It's not as high as Mario or Zelda but still.

I'll give it A-Tier, but it's still not S-Tier. If it was, you'd have to include Kirby and Sonic as well. For the record, Sonic is at around 80m, so it more than qualifies.

Why are people basing this on their personal opinions? With this context, it should be based on sales.

S tier: Mario (446 million), Pokemon (219 million)
A tier: Sonic (85 million), Zelda (68 million)
B tier: Metal Gear (32 million), Kirby (32 million)
C tier: Star Fox (11 million), Metroid (14 million)

S Tier Pokemon, Mario, Zelda, Metal Gear
A Tier DK, Kirby, Fire Emblem, Metroid
B Tier Yoshi, Wario, Pikmin, Sonic
C Tier Star Fox, F-Zero


Fixed. It should be noted that I removed Mother cause it's just not really a series anymore. Also Sonic is mediocre nowadays.


IYO, and that doesn't stop it from being the 3rd most game franchise of all time. It's S tier regardless of what you think.


That sentence makes no sense. Critics and many fans agree that it isn't very good anymore.

Sonic is only the 14th best selling game franchise too. With lower quality games in the past 10 years all put it at B Tier.


Whether you think the quality has decreased or not, that doesn't change that Sonic is a gaming icon and with his 88 million, the franchise is easily A, if not S-tier. For a period of time, Sonic took the market away from Nintendo; that much has to be respected.

Colors & Generations were both stellar; it's only a matter of time until the series has been completely "revived".
