Go up to a random person and ask who Raiden is and they'd be like "that mortal combat dude? He's sick".

No, just no.

Mortal Kombat is a niche game within a niche genre.


No dude, more people in this world know who Scorpion, sub zero and raiden are compared to every character in all stars combined.

Hint, "Ask a random person" is not an argument in your favour in any way whatsoever.

Neither is "Nah, dude".

Ironically every single person so far disagrees with you.

What do you expect from fanboys?

And the Mortal Kombat characters are cultural icons for gaming, ones that nothing in this game compares to, it's a fact, like it or not.

Come on guys. Everyone knows Raiden from MK. Like literally everyone. Not to say he's right that no one knows Raiden from MGS (though very few do), but to deny MK's popularity and recognition is just stupid.

He's also right about a lot of these characters. I've been a mostly Sony gamer from PS1 to PS3, recently switching to Xbox 360, and I don't know a lot of these characters.

Spoken like true casual trash.

Seriously, you're not a gamer if you don't know any of the characters in this game.

I bet TC would complain if Old Snake was in PSASBR.

"WUTEH**** NOBODY RECOGNIZES THIS OLD DUDE"

Nobody remembers or cares who Sir Daniel, Jak, Ratchet, Sweet Tooth (even back then w/e his vehicle, nobody cares about him), Sly, Parappa, are anymore, and even more don't eve know them.

Stopped reading there.


Ditto.

Parappa and Sweet Tooth are very iconic. Any faithful Playstation fan should know them.

Jak, Ratchet, and Sly are all very iconic too - I haven't played any of their games and I know who they all are!
