This game flopped is because the public doesn't GAF about these characters

I've been a Playstation fan since the first one came out, and I love my PS3 and use it every day, but this roster is terrible.

Big Daddy should not even be in the game. He's not a PS all-star, or an exclusive. He feels more like a Microsoft character.

The problem with Cole and Nathan Drake is they make great avatars in their games because they're so generic and everyman. Their games are fun to play, but as characters they are dry. I'd have rather seen Sully in this game, because he's a riot.
And did we really need TWO Coles?

Colonel Radec may or may not be a good choice. I don't know, I did't really play Killzone. I will admit that he's iconic.

New Dante is lame. Nobody likes him, and the devs were trying to justify his inclusion before the game was even out. That says it all right there.

Emmett Graves? Who? (Yes, I know he's from Starhawk. That doesn't help.)

Fat Princess gets a pass. She's iconic.

Heihachi is a character I personally enjoy playing in Tekken games, but Tekken has some of the most dry, generic characters in fighting. It's a deep, amazing fighting game, but King or Yoshimitsu have some character to them. Heihachi is an old man in a diaper.

Jak and Daxter were a good choice.

Kat from Gravity Rush? Again, that's kind of reaching to call her an all-star.

Kratos would have been AWESOME...if this was his first fighting game. I understand his necessary inclusion, but he was pimped out long ago to SoulCalibur and Mortal Kombat. I've seen it already.

Nariko is the poor man's Kratos.

PaRappa isn't an All-Star by any means, but I like him, personally. That gives it points.

Raiden works, I guess. I don't find myself excited by him, though. A different, unmentioned fighting game ran on Metal Gear steam already.

Ratchet and Clank are a fantastic choice.

Sackboy, again, good call. Can't get excited over him, though.

Dan Fortesque was a great call.

Sly was another good call.

Spike? I don't like Ape Escape, but I guess...no, no, no he's not.

Sweet Tooth, again, works, but I know him from a car combat game. I really can't get worked up over his on-foot appearance. He's iconic, but I never play as him in the games. He's just a big clown.

Toro's a good choice internationally, but for American audiences, we just don't care.

All that said, I just can't get excited over this game. I wanted to, I really did. But come on.

I understand they don't have the licenses for characters like Crash and Spyro, but that really, seriously hurts them. For people in my age range, those DEFINE the Playstation. Giving up your one-time mascot is a pretty bad move, as was just proven.

Lara Croft should not have been hard to get in. She's got a game coming out.

Where the heck is Croc? Mr. Domino? No one can stop him. The guy from Dark Cloud? A White Knight from White Knight Chronicles? Those all would have been good calls.

PlayStation, as we've learned, is known for its fun games, not its iconic characters. I've never expected it to survive on character recognition, but rather game recognition.

Unfortunately, as much as I love my PlayStation and will be buying the new Uncharted, God of War, and Twisted Metal, I will not be buying PSBAR.

These aren't as iconic as Smash characters.

And smash has a breath taking soundtrack to boot.

You think no one knows Radec, Cole, or Raiden?

Lol, kill yourself.


No they don't.

People who've never played MGS know who snake is.

Raiden? Not so much.

Radec, lmao, I have both PS3 Killzone games I don't even know who the hell he his, he looks like some generic nazi supersoldier thing.

Cole, aka the most generic looking protag ever? You think even 2% of the general public know who he is? Lmao.


BOTH Killzone games?
There are 3...
Not that it matters, you've obviously never played any of them if you don't know Radec.

And to say nobody cares about Drake, Cole or Sackboy?
I doubt you own a PS3 at all.

Claiming people don't know about two characters who are currently being heavily marketed is one of the dumbest things I have read all week.
